3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5l bottle from the local shop. Pours hazy pale golden, with off-white head. Aromas of bananas, malt, biscuits, a bit spicy. Tastes very crisp and refreshing. Not very complex on the palate, and medium finish. But it’s well balanced, and this is a good choice on a hot summer day. I prefer this over any standard lagers.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
My Bottom Line:
There is plenty of hay and flowers dallying atop this Belgian-style Ale’s dry, crisp mouthfeel, evolving into herbal hop bitterness.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sticky head of foam is laid out atop the pale golden haze.
-Mild banana esters are felt underneath.
-An earthy finish with a rustic touch seems to be the combined work of hops and yeast.
-The mouthfeel is balanced throughout.
-These guys brew really flavorful non-Vinmonopolet (under 4.8%) brews.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Large white head over clear pale golden beer. Medium plus aroma intensity of sound malt and citrus and mature fruitiness, little hops on nose. Good freshness on the attack, well-carbonated and medium minus bodied, flows well, though the bitterness is a little coarse. It works but makes it a little less impressive. It hoilds a decent midpalate and a medium finish, not aided too much by the monotonous hoppiness. I prefer the more floral HB Ardenne blonde but this has its role to play.
