2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from some random Vinmonopolet enjoyed at home
A gusher. Deep murky orange, frothy white head. Smells of spices, yeast esters, some bakers yeast, spice and malts. Moderate sweet, quite yeasty, some fruityness but it feels too yeasty for me. That also makes the mouthfeel quite strange, you taste the yeast instead of malts or hops. Some hops in the back with moderate bitter finish. A strange beer; too bad my palate didn’t like it that well. A big bottle of this was hard to finish alone

Bottle. Hazy, deep golden, smallish head. Sweet aroma marked by the spiciness of heather honey. Quite complex spicy sweetness. In the end a bit too sweet, though I like the complexity of heather honey.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shared 750 ml bottle, imported to Germany by BraufactuM. Bought at Citti-Markt Flensburg. Orginal bottle No. 42311. German bottle No. 313. ABV is 9%. Cloudy orange colour, moderate white head. Moderate aroma of honey and herbs. Plenty of carbonation. The flavour is not nearly as sweet as I feared, but has distinct notes of heather honey and various herbs. Unusual and interesting.
