3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Quite clear, golden under a medium thick fluffy head, persistent. Good aroma intensity of citrus, yeast and coriander, unusually perfumed. Medium full bodied, tastes include dry fruity malt with citrus and warm spices, not only coriander but something akin to all-spice or other christmas spice, quite well balanced, medium plus length. Feels pretty thorough and hand-crafted compared to mediocre examples of the style. I’ll try another.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 33cl. A decent, white head forms over an unclear, pale golden body. The aroma is lighlty spiced, with a nice fruityness, some pale malts and a little caramel touch. The flavor has some spices up front, it’s quite fruity, and with a backdrop of lightly caramel-ish malts. Medim body, soft and pleasant carbonation. A decent bitterness shows up towards the end. An easy drinkable and tasteful beer. 131004

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a near-muddy milky dark straw-hued body with a medium creamy white. Nose is straw, nuts, pale malts, honey, banana and hints of coriander and wet grass. Taste is pale malts, white sugar, straw and hints of mild white bubble gum and white pepper. Light body, high carbonation. Despite the additional spices, this one comes across as rather mild and drinkable. I like it.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very cloudy yellow with a small almost no head. Smells a bit funky, with some zest, honey, maybe slight peppercorn. Almost saison aroma. A bit undercarbonated. Yeasty finish. A bit flat and small body that has its downfall on the brew. Otherwise ok.

0,33 flaske fra polet, hjemme: 5,5% iflg etiketten - ikke 6,3% slik det oppgis på RB. Uklar gylden med kort filmskum. Slank både i kropp og sjel, men allikevel behagelig og litt innsmigrende med banan, honning, litt nellik og naturligvis pregetav belgisk gjær. En vellykket debut av det for meg helt ukjente øllandet Sveits.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Embrouille - thank you so much for the trade! A gusher. Opens with a deafening plop! and pours cloudy pale yellow with abundand airy but stable white head. Sweetish aroma of yeast and banana with clear sourish notes - not of citrus, possibly of grain. Bitter, hoppy amd grassy flavour, with pronounced notes of citrus and a touch of spices - coriander?. Hops and lemon peel in the finish. I cannot quite taste the honey promised on the label, but it is not a problem as such. OK but a trifle too sourish (and no, it is not off, I have just checked the BBD.)
