3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy, medium orange body with a creamy, off-white head that leaves some foam on the glass. Moderate aroma with refreshing light fruits with citrus and I think there even is some faint banana in there. The dry and dusty yeast notes make the aroma not that sweet. Also herbs and spices. Moderate to light sweet taste with a moderate to light bitter long-lasting finish. Floral, spicy, herbal, fruity and yeasty flavours with more banana than in the aroma, and also faint honey. Medium body and a delicious smooth and creamy texture, soft carbonation. Some dryness in the finish, but this one smells drier than it tastes. A nice beer!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flaske fra Polet: fint skum som legger seg langs glasset. Uklar, mørk gylden farge, fullt av liv. Førsteinntrykket er en oljeaktig og god munnfølelse, passe karbonert. Søte bær, eple og krydder (fra gjæren?) som minner litt om gode hveteøl. Litt kort ettersmak? Drikker gjerne denne igjen.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.75l bottle. Packed with tiny sediments this is a blurry copper-amber one and it has a nice medium sized lasting and lacing off-white head. Really fruity on the aroma, I get lot’s of sweet malts, some almost smoky tones and fruity berries. Flavor not as fruity as the aroma made me beleive, but there is still good tones of sweet berries, caramel. Light peppery and almost spicy with hints of green apples. Oily mouthfeel with a average comfortable carbonation level. Nice one. 04.06.2012
