3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Bevmo. Not worth $9.99 for the 750. Funky bready aroma. Odd liquorice and bready taste, but the orange and corriander are nice. Doesn’t really work overall.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaske 0,75 l fra Vinmonopolet. Gylden på farge: Aprikos. Pent kremaktig skum. Uklart. Syrlig fruktig aroma. Variert smak med sitrus og eple i forgrunnen. Svært søtlig bitter ettersmak. Ganske lite kullsyre. En veldig positiv overraskelse - og en pen flaskedesign. KI=2

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle at PPRBSG09. Thin pale golden beer with a white head. The aroma is light and hoegaardenesque. Coriander and light citrus over a light wheatiness. Pretty thin body... I’d probably take the original over this one. Meh... it tastes like what it is.
