4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
2012 edition (brewed 17.02.12)
Highly carbonated (kinda a trademark for my experience with HaandBryggeriet) nice brown head(like thick soap) looking past the stinging carbonation its has a good malt sweetness, dark fruity flavours, a hint of resin and molassis, nutty aftertaste. If this hadent been as overcarbonated as it was it would be a almost perfect traditional Norwegian Juleøl ;)

On draft. Dark brown color with beige head. Grape and smoke aroma. Taste is a lot like a white wine with that grape and some spices. Very different beer and interesting.

God og fyldig øl med fin farge og skum. Trekk for tynn og kort ettersmak. Anbefales som en øl som kan nytes alene.
