Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Pours out in a hazy reddish amber colour with a small white foam. Fruity and very hoppy aroma of grass, blood-grape, pepper and paint with sweet undertones of blood-oranges. Medium-bodied with hoppy notes of blood-grape and grass with touches cookies and yellow fruits. long bitter finish of wet grass, grapefruit and orange-peels. Tasty!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Redlight Redlight. Pours a clear reddish-amber color with a small, foamy, tan head that settles to a thin, patchy film. Micro-spot lacing dots the glass. Aromas are boozy for a relatively small beer, showing grainy alcohol notes of a base of pale cereal malts, toast, oregano, and an odd, briny sort of funk. Hints of pickles come to mind. Flavors again are grainy, in a alcoholic sort of way, with a strange, mildly tart funk, dusty yeast, and notes of sage and oregano. The palate is thin, bordering on watery, sporting moderate carbonation and a drying, boozy finish. Eh, I’m not impressed in the least bit with this one.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml brown bottle from Craft Beer Advent Calendar. Brown pour, some haze. Nicely formed beige head, creamy edges, good stickiness. Spicy nose, caramel, some chocolate malt, nutty, hints of fruit. Taste has chocoalte and nutty malt notes, cherries and assorted fruits. Dries right out at the end, late yeasty notes. Carbonation is on the high side, body is medium. The alcohol stays well hidden. Overall a drinkable Belgian ale, but nothing I would seek out again.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Interesting beer. Poured perhaps a touch cold, with a small to medium sized, cream-colored head that soon settles to some swirls and a ring with a tiny bit of lace. Color is a cloudy brown amber opaque in the wider parts of the glass. Aroma is a muted combo of malt, fruit, apricots, plums, yeast, wine. Flavor is a blend of those qualities with interesting interplay between sweet and carbonic tang being slightly more dominant than bitter. Very rich. Body is big, but the sweet, tang and bitter create high points that along with its richness make it a little overpowering. Carbonation is good taken alone. Finish is medium in length. No alcohol warmth. One and done.
