3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap@Tilt in Oslo in large tulip glass@approx 7 degrees C. Pours dark, almost clear orange with off white head with ok retention. Aroma of yeast, hops, citrus as in grapefruit, lemon and pomerance. This is also reflected in the taste though this becomes somewhat heavy and does not really hit neither the Belgian nor the IPA tastes for me. Bitter and not too well balanced. No doubt this is an interesting beer and I hope to re-rate a day where I do not hit it in a bar somewhat late at night. But for now, I think it is complex and interesting, but not sufficently balanced to be a great.

Amber with average head. Sweet with fruity hops. Little pine resin. Creamy malts. Quite sweet and not overly bitter for an IPA. Interesting but maybe a bit too sweet.

Bottle from the Kings Tun JDW, pours a deep orange-amber with a lasting white head, aromas of pine, bitter orange, caramel and a little funky horse blanket. Rich and dry-sweet with a faintly sour and dry bitterness. Spicy funky Saison notes and toffee, more bitter orange and a dry alcohol bite. Fascinating!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear deep golden colour with quickly falling white head. Aroma hops, orange, orange zest, floral. Caramel in aroma. Taste bitter hops, caramel and maybe some yeast. Alcohol in taste. My expectations from taste based on aroma were higher. Bitter aftertaste. Good one.
