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.

3.2 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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy golden color. Light fragerant nose. Peaches and a touch of ume tartness. Very idosynchractic. Very carbonated. Light plum finish. My friend said it got lost on him the complexity. I would have to agree. If you arenít hard core about beer it would be hard to get.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice looking hazy golden with a medium head. Light tart fruit, some hops, and a little malt. Itís nice, but I wish it was stronger. Flavor is similar, but rather weak, unfortunatly. Medium, well carbonated body. Baird produces some great beers and this one is almost one of them, but itís a little on the weak side.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours very pale straw with a fading head.
Nose shows some funk and sweet stonefruit along with faint wheat.
Acidic flavours, but with doughy notes underneath and the faintest hint of more stonefruit. Very drinkable but not all that interesting.
Needs more carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A fruit beer made with plum. 5.5% a super cloudy straw gold with a fluffy white head & a fresh plum aroma. The flavor is a mild zesty plum but the mouthfeel is thin & a bit watery with low carbonation. Zesty citrus that mellows into plum. Decent but it needs a bit more body & carbonation. Near the end of my glass the sweetness was getting slightly cloying but overall very nice.
