MPA (860) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - AUG 2, 2011
Bottle from Menno - thx. Beautiful amber with a nice off white head. Spicy aroma with notes of cloves, apricot and marcipan. Flavour has an initial caramel and fruit sweetness which is quickly substituted by a solid, dry bitterness that comes wrapped in an alcoholic full body. This beer delivers on multiple levels, but doesn’t exceed it’s own limitations within the style. I could drink this often, but the aroma would probably keep me from it, as cloves remind me of some bad experiences with Becherovka.

Simonsen (784) - NORWAY - MAY 12, 2013
Flaske fra vinmonopolet. Gusher. Mærk ravfarget,uklar. Enormt mye skum. Smaker malt,humle,karamell,honning,grapefrukt,furunål. Ganske god, men keg synes den bar ganske dævv. Sansynligvis fordi halve inneholdet sprutet ut på kjøkkengulvet når jeg åpnet den, og resten i flasken ble til skum. Tror jeg må rate denne på nytt en annen gang

fantti (762) - FINLAND - JAN 13, 2013
Kaatuu lasiin meripihkan värisenä ja keskikokoisella isokuplaisella vaahdolla. Juoma on kylläkin todella varovasti kaadettu ja toisella, hieman reilummalla kaadolla vaahtoaminen on todella runsasta. Hiilihappoa näyttäisi olevan. Haju on mausteinen, pihkainen, hedelmäinen ja jopa lambicmaisen hapan. Maku on käyneen hedelmäinen, marjainen, havuinen, ruohoinen ja lambicmaisen hapan. Suutuntuma on äärimmäisen pirskahteleva ja hiilihappoisuus peittää muun alleen. Kokonaisuutena mieleen tulee Orval, joskin tämä on hieman huonompi painos. Kuitenkin jollain perverssillä tapaa tämä maistui meikäläiselle.

berlinoise2go (647) - NORWAY - NOV 1, 2011
Bottle (33cl) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Huge offwhite head, slowly diminishing, sticky appearance with pretty lace patterns. Slightly hazy, amber colour. Aroma of herbal hops, caramel, plum, wood, yeast, hint of licorice and a slight tartness. Medium body, lively yet soft carbonation. Taste is moderately sweet, before a powerful, resinous hop bitterness takes over. Well balanced overall. Hard to categorize, but pleasant and interesting.
