3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Papsø! Batch 437. Hazy orange pour with with a steady spitty white head and spotty lace. Nose is on the sweeter side upfront, lots of caramel, light butterscotch and vanilla, apple pie. Hops are definitely evident with note of pineapple, lemon, grass, and citrus. A tad grainy on some sniffs. Flavor is more centered, though still a bit sharp in its balance of malt and hops.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rating #778, bottle from Toft Vin. Unclear yellow beer with a small head. Aroma is something I can’t read because my notes got wet, then some citrus, oranges and delicious hops. Flavour of oranges, citrus, grapes, mashed bananas and a strong bitterness all the way through. Medium thickness and soft palate. Delicious, but not as good as it’s reputation.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Poured a cloudy dirty beige color ale with a quite large foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of medium citrus notes with some lightly sweet caramel malt notes. Taste is dominated by some citrus hoppy notes with a good dose of semi-sweet caramel malt with some earthy notes. Bitterness level is somewhat higher then the average with good carbonation and a full body. I was expecting an even bigger hops punch but well brewed nonetheless.

Shared bottle @ Cardinal. Pours golden with a nice thick white head. Thick aromas of spices, fruits and some hops. Full body. The bitterness helps to conceal the alcohol. An interesting brew.

Lovely complex, peaches and apricots, sourness. Very rich beer disregarding the style. Lacks bitterness, but what the heck.

Bottle@præstemosen. Small head winkle of amber clear. Due to a cool the aromas are faint. Some floral and citrus. The pronounced bitterness hides some of the alcohol. Intense brew. Will try it again.
