Bue en bouteille de 75cl. Pas très typique de la barré wine, étonnamment. Arômes caramel, sucre candi. Décevant.

Palme (3546) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2014
Sampled from a 0.75l bottle @ RBNG 2014. Quite a cloudy thing this. Dark amber almost a little brown in the glass and it has a small islandy beige sidesticking top. Sweet concentrated fruits on the nose. Some yeast, red berries, lots of date sweetness. Almost a little sticky. Not to amazing honestly. It has some quite grainy flavors. Not as strong or sticky as I had hoped for or was expecting in the taste. Almost a bit watery perhaps? Prickling on the bubbles. A faint sourness also detected here. Not a worthy finisher IMO. 15.02.2014

Rune (8464) - Tromsø, NORWAY - MAR 2, 2014
Sampled from a big bottle at the Grand Tasting at the RBNG-event at Fredrik 3.’s Hall. Off-white head to a cloudy, dark amber coloured body. Earthy malt and vanilla sweetness on the nose. Flavoured with herbal hops, raisin, vanilla and even joined by a touch of liquorice. Bittersweet end. Noticeable alcohol. Tolerable sweet. Okay in small doses (Fredriksten festning, Halden 15.02.2014).

visionthing (2963) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2014
From a shared 75cl bottle at RBNG-14. Pours hazy amber with an off-white head. Sweet and malty aroma with caramel and hints of alcohol. A bit too sweet for my taste, but fairly well balanced.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 27, 2014
Medium sand-colored head. Cloudy reddish-amber body. Fairly fresh fruit nose. Some sweetish toasted malts and hint of alcohol. Body is much lighter than expected. Slick texture. Fruity sweetness in the flavor, as well, paired with a light malt base. Discreet bitterness, hint of mild spices and alcohol. [Shared bottle at Grand Tasting, RBNG2014]
