3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
750ml bottle. Uncorked without a sound. Pours a clear amber shade with a very nice white head and lace. Aroma of citrus peel, red fruits, caramel and old hops. Those elements best describe the taste too. The noble hops are very apparent here. Creamy and sticky mouthfeel with fairly low carbonation. Drinks easier than the strength. Seems to have held up quite well.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
En smak fra flaske fremskaffet av Ole Anders, i Sigmunds hage juni -12: Uklar oransje farge med kremet lysebrunt skum. Snev av brett i aromaen, sammen med frukt- og kryddernoter. Mye alkoholsødme i smaken, i tillegg til bitterhet og et snev av røyk. Bør nok prøves en annen gang også.

Spicy and fruity, vinous aroma: white grape, pineapple also creamy base malt. Hazy red-orange under a rocky, off-white head. Woody bitter flavour that is not too dry and complemented by tropical fruits, including pineapple. Some celery phenolics and and excellent, smooth malt finish. Medium body very high carbonation, slightly woody bitter finish.

on tap at the new upstairs bar at zly casy, 13.10.2012, which makes me a bit surprised to see that it has been retired. anyways, faintly hazed amber with a shaving cream head; aroma of beetroot juice and wet umbrella; bloody, roast beetroot flavours which i found quite agreeable and a touch of sulphur; finishes with hints of strawberry jam on toast. pleasant enough
