Aroma of sweet fruit preserve and a huge white uneven head. True to its style with the bitterness of an IPA. Nice sweet aftertaste that stays forever. Bottle from Ton Overmars in Amsterdam.

Rune (8047) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2011
330ml bottle bought at Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo. Huge, fawn-coloured head that stays well in the glass covering an unclear amber body. Fragile lace. Smell of earthy malts with notes of petrol. Flavoured with dark spices and earthy, caramel malts. Bittersweet aftertaste. The beer lost some of its flavour and body after a while. Quite alright, but not on par with the De Molen range (Tromsø, 17.12.2011).

Color ambre. Amarga, lleugera, amb una carbonatació agradable i amb certa retenció d’escuma. Notes de fruits secs en boca. Final sec, amarg, llarg i agradable. De fàcil beure. Per treure la sed.

bergstaden (1250) - Røros, NORWAY - DEC 13, 2011
Dark golden with a large white head - good hoppy aroma - good malt body to support a good hop bitterness - dry hoppy ending - this was very good

Flaske 0,33l fra Vinmonopolet Oslo, Vika. Fortært 31 Okt 11. Gyldenbrun. Uklar. Høyt kremaktig skum som varer lenge. Antydning til honning i aromaen. Forsiktig mandelsmak. Tørr fruktig bitterhet i ettersmaken. På det jevne.

GT2 (8432) - San Diego County, California, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Tap at Paradiso Dupont. Poured a clear, light orange with a small, whiter head. HUGE yellow apple nice, insane cidery notes and acetaldehyde. Orange cough syrup comes to mind as well. Even small vinegar. Uhhhh. Taste is bitter, soapy, very astringent like over steeped malt. Tannic red apple skins as well. Super tea tannic astringency. What.....happened.....

Bottle enjoyed at home
Pours deep red and builds up the most amazing head you can imagine. Totally massive. Falls down to cm layer that you can increase to the double again with a litte glass twirl. Smells of ripe fruits, caramel, apple and malts. Full malt body with no sweetness at all. Fruity heavy flavors apply all over. Oily and dry on the palate. Nice hoppy bitterness with some resins

abemorsten (2767) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2011
33 cl bottle from Vika Vinmonopol. Muddy, murky orange with a gelatinous, beige head, three fingers thick. Good lacing. Caramel malty and floral nose with hints of old wooden cupboard. Full bodied and boozy, bitter and biscuit sweet. Grows a little in the mouth with a thick, foamy mouth feel. Long and pleasantly bitter finish.

Flavour is caramel malts, fruity and floral bitterness, some mild honey, nectar and mild toffeeish notes as well. Grassy and floral notes in the finish.
