brokensail (12286) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 3, 2012
A light amber pour with a white head. Very spice forward aroma on this. A good bread note, some yeast, and plenty of malt sweetness. A bit of pear and apple fruits and some banana. Tastes strongly of sweet pale malt and sugar. Plenty of banana and clove spiciness, a bit of alcohol, and a mild bitterness. Quite fruity as it warms up, too.

gunnar (6107) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 4, 2015
Bottle from Etre Gourmet. Pours almost clear golden with a big frothy white head. Lovely floral aroma, yeast, peach and dried apricot. Taste is Orvalesque, citrus and fruity with a decent funky rockn roll addition, more apples and hops than expected, a really pleasant surprise this one, recommended complex beer.

Overall the champagne and cider-like notes are quite dominant. Medium sweet with light tartness and light bitter finish. Medium bodied with full carbonation and some alcohol. Very good.
