Palme (3163) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2012
0.33l bottle. this is a cloudy one, light burgundy-brown in color and it has a small quickly sidesticking and light bubbly off-white top. I’m also noting some big dark sediments at the bottom of the glass. On the nose it’s quite fruity and a bit sweet. Sticky caramel - and lots of it with a light grassy hoppy thing in the background - also surrounded bu ripe strawberries and malt drops. The sweetness dominates. Quite nice I have to say. It’s right on average carbonated and the mouthfeel is light sticky-oily. Sticky sweet caramel in the flavor balanced by a strong hoppy bitterness. Some branches and dust also, and there is also a hint of alcohol. It has what you might call a green flavor. Not to over-complicated, fresh or exciting, but still tasty. 29.11.2012

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - NOV 19, 2012
Sample at Borefts Beer Festival 2012. Pours a hazy and copper beer with a white head. The aroma is malt and hops with peach and tropical fruit. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is bitterness. Overall a good beer.

Idiosynkrasie (3574) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 11, 2012
330ml bottle. Slightly cloudy amber colour with average to huge, frothy to creamy, lasting, off-white head. Hoppy aroma with a grapefruit note, underlying resinous, slightly purulent malt basis. Taste is dry to bitter hoppy, citrusy, minimally sweet caramel malty, notes of grapefruit, tangerine, bitter chicory. Fresh, citrusy, bitter and solid, though not outstanding IIPA.

Borefts Beer Festival IV. Day 2. HBC 342 version. Very hazy amber gold beer, big pale cream coloured head. Smooth palate, semi dry. Some malt cream. Big skunky hops with orange citrus underneath. Finishes smooth and creamy. Really got the skunk character from these hops.
