Bottle, 633ml, at Patricks. A hazy, yellowish golden beer topped by a small white head. Fruity nose, apricot and some perfumed notes. A bit sweet on the palate, medium body. Apricot, hints of cellar and not enough hops in the flavor. Apricot and malty sweetness in the finish. An easy drinkable beer that won’t exite or offend anyone. 100213

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Biggish offwhite head. Muddy yellow body. Medicinal strawberry and herbs aroma. Dry herbal mealy medicinal taste with fruity notes. Mild mouthfeel. Mid-bodied. Dry mealy fruity aftertaste with herbal aroma. There is a very characteristic herbal taste in this, but I can’t identify it. Buttery feel lingers. Nice, but unremarkable. (0.63l bottle, Olympen, Oslo.)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Hazy orange body with a fine off-white head. Aroma is light fruity like citric and fresh red berries with caramel. Flavor is sweet malty with fruit from both citric and red berries and a mild bitterness. The hop flavor is quite mild, but distinct and gets more present in the aftertaste. Quite pleasant, for me this is like a session beer with a gentle complexity that become more difficult to find after a few stronger beers.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at Olympen. Cloudy, glowing orange with a good off-white head. Hoppy and berryish aroma. Some sourness, sweet malts, semi-dry. Body could be fuller. A Belgian-style blond ale that, sadly, has lost its personality.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at Barley.
Cloudy, muddy, light amber orange color with a nice, fine, frothy head. Grainy pils malt and sour ume aroma, with wheat. Sweet wheat malt flavor, lots of esters and fruit, ume and a touch of banana. Very creamy, lightly hopped with just a bit of bitterness. OK but rather boring and too sweet; slightly cloying with a strange yeast character.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft @ Popeye’s: Hazy orange, light head and lacing. Nose of light floral notes and fruit, grassy, light wheat, subtle ume is hidden below lots of funky wheat and slight hop notes. Not very clean tasting, but the ume is there if you look for it. I don’t know if I’m hardcore into beer as Tim says it, but I dove into this one and I just wasn’t getting the balance here.
