2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle, shared by Palme @ Henrik, Bergen. Slightly hazy, dark brown body. Medium creamy, off-white head. Nose is soapy green hops and hints of nougat, coca-cola and milk chocolate. Weird. Taste is UTTERLY weird, with tones of port wine, dark malts, detergent, metal and stale wheat. Hints of coca-cola. WTF? What is this? What kind of fruits are in it??? Baird scores some originality points here, but this is not my thing, that’s for sure... :-P

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
0.633l bottle shared with ClubGonzo @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours a dark orange body with a little tiny just off-white head. Strange nose almost sugar sweet sweets, lollipop-aroma and soap. Taste is completely different! Pungent-sh, synthetic and outdated carbonation, grass and quite watery. Almost like they have poured a old and heavily shaking sparkling water in the batch and hurried up to bottle it. There is also unfortunately a not so great dirt and earthy flavor near the end. As Yoda would have said it: To strange for me, this is. Yes, hmmm.

Fra flaske på Cardinaltreff nov-12: hmm, dette var merkelige saker. Liten og tynn smak, og ettersmaken ditto. Japanske øl er en sjeldenhet her, men jeg husker at da jeg var i Japan likte jeg deres mørke øl svært godt (f.eks. Sapporo og Asahi). Men kanskje det er mer gode turminner.
