3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
355ml bottle kindly shared by Finn at a tasting session. Dense, rocky, white head that laces well. Cloudy golden body. Fresh fruity aroma with a spiced wheaty touch. Ripe fruits like dry lemon and oranges in flavour with spices playing second fiddle. Earthy malts beneath. Smooth bitter ending with a long tail. Well balanced and good to drink (Tromsø,30.05.2012).

19th December 2009
Hazy gold beer. Yeasty orange citrus nose. Semi dry and semi soft palate, turns light and frothy. Honey - orange and then a blossoming bittering coriander spice that really takes over and leaves a bitter aftertaste past the dry finish. Aquired taste but not bad.

Flaske 0,355l fra Utobeer, Borough Market. Delt med Rune under rateseanse i WC-veien 30 Mai 12. Veldig lys gylden. Høyt kremaktig betongskum. En har følelsen av at dersom en vender glasset opp ned vil ingenting renne ut. Litt uklar. Sterk & god krydderaroma. Smaken er ekstremt velbalansert. Appelsinskall, druer & litt krydderFin syrlighet i ettersmaken. Rett og slett et forfriskende og godt øl.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
It is poured a medium golden color, with touches of amber along the sides of the glass. A head forms a half to three quarters of an inch high, white in color, staying there for sometime. The spicy, sweet, fragrances of the Belgian yeast is at the front of the aroma. That is followed by a mild grassy scent, along with a soft citrus fragrance. The yeasty esters are strong at the beginning of each taste. That is soon followed by hearty bread and mild malt flavors. Then at the halfway point across the palate, the growing flavor of grapefruit hits. Brought along for the ride are grassy and earthy flavors, which linger on the palate for sometime. A heavy watery feel at the front, it then gradually gains weight as it rolls to the back. It finishes with an arid dryness on the back of the palate. This is a strong Belgian IPA, bringing the unique flavors from the yeast and the added intensity of hops; make this a very worldly beer. I throw it at some spicy Mexican or Chinese dishes.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. An unclear, golden colored beer with a medium sized off-white head. Some alcohol on the nose, followed by sweetness, fruityness, a touch of spicyness and pine cones, and also a little cellar hint and some orange. Sweet, citrusy flavor with piney bitterness, a touch of spicyness and some orange. Full-bodied, warming and pleasantly carbonated. Bitter, fruity and sweet finish. A nice Belgian style American. 110610

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Okay, so this beer got the ax and my bottle is more than a year old. It is supposed to be an India pale with Belgian lager yeast. I’d say it has the floral nose and flushing body of a saison. There’s some white pepper in there too. Tastes sweet and bitter, but not a knock out either way. Thin yet chalky somehow. Oh well, can’t win them all.

Bottle. Pours out a yellow color with a white head on it. Smell is yeasty and fruity with a pretty decent hop aroma. Taste smooth and lively with plenty of carbonation. An interesting beer, but I am glad I only bought a single.
