3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, 33cl. Clear, sparkling, pale yellow beer with a dense white head. The aroma is mostly yeasty, but it has some green apples, candisugar and spices too. The flavor is quite complex, with a finish beeing alcohol-dominated, but not totally overpowering the fruity citricness and the bitterness and the dry feeling that comes at the very end of the flavor-profile. Well, back to the initial flavor. It too has alcohol, along with spices, candisugar, prunes and a green apple-sourness. A very quaffable beer, concerning the pronounced alcohol. And I’m feeling dizzy now...(060314)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle. Almost clear golden yellow. Moderate white head with some left after receding. Interesting nose of granny smith and spicy perspiration. Leather, dentist office and sour warheads. Taste is a little sour and some funk. Slightly metallic aftertaste. Why am I thinking Colt-45? Initial carb dissipates into a smooth mouth feel.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear light yellow color with ever lasting head! Definately a disappointment! Too much carbonation and fruity flavor turns bitter when the aftertaste settles, damn!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served in a stylish (Burgundy?) Duvel glass at Blå Rock Cafe in Tromsø (10.03.2006). Bright golden colour topped with a dense, rocky white foam. Crispy and aromatic. A powerful and hoppy drink, full of fresh fruit. Slightly alcohol in the palate. Lasting dryness finish. On a very warm summer day at the Dam-place in Amsterdam in late June 05, I also remembered this ale as a very tasteful thirst-quencher.

A classic. A standard by which to compare so many other beers. And a standout, always.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
330mL bottle from the LCBO. Pours to a pale gold, massive white head that refuses to die. Aroma is of malt and citrus, with a slight hint of skunk, and something that almost smells musty. Taste is wonderful - malt, fruit, spice, and something else I’m not sure how to describe, with a perfect touch of hops at the end. Mouthfeel is also excellent, carbonation is right around where I like it, and although the beer is rich, it’s still quite refreshing. Overall, a spectacular beer.
