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.

330ml bottle (bottled 20th June 2015) shared with a friend at home on 15th Aug 2016: so slightly out of date. Mini-haze to the golden yellow body, white head. fruity nose and taste with a citrus leaning. Easy drinking and fairly interesting.

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.

3.1 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.

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 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.)
