0.75 L corked and waxed bottle from Vinmonopolet Nettbutikk. Pours a hazy brass colored body, with a mostely diminishing dense blond head. Quite fresh-smelling. Zesty citrus, perfumey herbs, and mild resin. Healthy body. Juicy mouthfeel. Light sweet-flavored with acidic fruit tones, a sharp and clean herbal note, and a hint of marzipan. Notes of bubblegum and some quite unusal spicy grains. Certainly a drinkable one, with an interesting mix of flavors.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2013 Ancient Egypt recipe, with kamut. Nice amber colour and good white head.
Smells orange peel and ginger, with tones of coriandre and other spices. A bit of bitterness,but in the end quite sweet, with nice fruity taste too. Somehow similar to a belgian witbier, but original and interesting, even if maybe a little too sweet.

Bottle at Chriso’s Pre-GBBF Shindig, 2012, London. One of my contributions to the festivities! Pours hazy, bright gold with a moderate, white foam head. Big herbal nose. Nice flavor, lots of thyme, medium to big sweetness. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish, more herbal character. Quite enjoyable. Wish I had taken better notes.

Straw-yellow colour, with a small white head. Aroma of hay, bread and a tiny bit of roast. The taste also reveals some caramel and herbs. Nice mouthfeel, and suiting carbonation. A really good beer imo.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet Briskeby, Oslo. Probably the classiest beer bottle I’ve seen to date, enjoyable to open the thick layer of wax and a wine cork. It pours a quite large white head which drops at a moderate speed, but doesn’t disappear. The aroma is dominated by the sweet malts, some acidic citrus, some alcohol, mixed with a little spiciness. I actually thought it was a Belgian style triple before I checked ratebeer. The taste is well balanced, sort of oily and heavy mouth feel. The rather sweet malty tones are dominating, mixed with a light acidic note, spices (I could swear I picked up something vanilla-ish). The aftertaste is slightly roasted and balances the beer nicely. A very nice beer I wouldn’t mind trying again, I like the Baladin concept, especially playing music for the yeast.
