Flaske 0,33l. Delt med Rune under seanse i H9 17 Jan 13. Gave fra Harrisoni. Thanks a lot. Gyldenbrun. Høyt luftig skum som daler sakte og etterlater kniplingsverk på glasset. Litt uklar. Atomsky i siste kvelling. Deilig fruktaroma. Smaken litt vassen. Aprikos.

Many thanks to Harrisoni for a 330ml bottle of this one which was passed over to Finn and me in London last November. Two-finger, bubbly head slowly fading over a hazy golden-amber body. Spotty lacing. Smell of apricot and oranges. Flavoured with half-dry fruits and juicy malts leading to a bittersweet finish. Medium bodied. Succulent in the mouth. Refreshing (with Finn at a session in Tromsø, 17.01.2013).

From the bottle pours mid brown, slightly hazy with a head that lasts quite well. Modest aroma from the New World hops. Tastes to me a bit like a cut and shut of a wheat beer and a belgian abbey tripel. Some toffee and banana in the flavour with a little citrus later on. A bit thin and light on the body to carry the strength, but not at all bad.

ChrisOs Easter Tasting. Hazy gold amber beer. Short lived white head. Light smooth palate. Semi dry with mild carbonation. A little malt, slightly caramel, provides a base for nice mellow but tart hops. Mild fresh marmalade. Some bitterness from the Belgian yeast. Semi dry finish. Mildly bitter aftertaste. Canterbury continue to impress.

Bottle at home thanks to Craig. Pours a golden colour with a thin white head. Lovely estery Belgian tripel aroma with juicy Kiwi hops reminiscent of Green Bullet. Similar fruity hop characters of pineapple and passion fruit before yeast and alcohol kick in. A lovely dry finish and an oily mouth-feel. Mild carbonation and CO2 prickle. This beer is very special indeed!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (thanks to Ian) at Chriso’s Easter tasting 2012. It pours hazy golden yellow, with a thin white head. The nose is citrus, candied peel, spice, peach, nectarine and melon. The taste is hay, spice, citrus pith, underlying sweetness, pear and melon, with a dry, spicy finish. Medium body and low-moderate carbonation. Decent enough, but really my sort of thing.

Cask at Egham United Services Club Easter Beer Festival 2012. A golden/amber coloured pour with a medium off white head on top. Hoppy, Belgian aroma. Tastes hoppy, fruity, yeasty, slightly bitter. An interesting brew from Canterbury.

At Foundry brewpub in Canterbury. Very hazy copper light brown, lasting beige head. Belgian estery aroma mixed with intense citrusy hops. Lovely orange tangerine fruit. Wow this is really lovely. Sometimes these cross over beers dont quite work but this is really good. Interesting Belgian estery yeast with the kind of tangerine led hop fruit you get from the best of the Kernel beers. Stunningly good.
