3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
633 ml bottle, courtesy of Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 5%. Deep copper coloured beer, big off-white head. Interesting aroma of malts, dark bread, caramel and ripe fruits, hints of wood. The flavour is fruity with a noticeable acidity, also notes of wood and brown bread, hints of caramel. Moderate hops in the finish. I’ve had better, I’ve had worse.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Qbrick fruit beer day, May 2008.
Aroma of nice but subtle dark malts and oranges, with something chemical as well. Sour citrus flavor with subtle darks malts and chocolate. Sour fnish. Very strong citrus in this beer. Not very well integrated, but interesting. Malt backing is nice, though too subtle. Lacking balance. Low carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light caramel in color. Enjoyable fruit, orange, malty, toasted aroma. Caramel malt is a powerhouse in the flavor followed by light citrus and fruit, with some wheat. Spicy, carbonated mouth-feel. Interesting and fun but the one was enough.
