4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Paradiso Georgetown. Sounds like a recipe for disaster: Imperial Wheat Beer from Norway. I almost vomited from Nogne O’s Imperial Dunkel Wit. This poured a hazy light orange with a baby, white head. Spots of lace. Not looking so hot. Aroma is out of this world- WTF? Giant tangerine, peach cobbler, smoked meat, cooked peaches, mace. Taste is incredibly intense: spicy alcohol, insanely rich and creamy body, sharp booziness cut by an oily palate. Peach cobbler, tangerine, sweet oranges and brandy juxtaposed with smoked meats. So much power and energy. Just one of the best beers I’ve ever had no joke. I can’t believe it.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, bought @ Bunker Beer, Cph.
Light hazy amber golden with a small, creamy, white head. Aroma is mild milky, lots of chamomile, peach, roses, light vinious, a hint of sherry. Good wheaty sweetness and a bit of caramel as base. Medium carbonation, good creamy and light dry mouthfeel. Flavour is elegant, lots of sweetness that is both fruity and wheaty. The viniousness is probably a bit too pronounced, but it is still finely drinkable with good fruity bitterness. Grapefruit, peach and a fair grassy bite. Quite nice. Not much chamomile in flavour.

Flaske 0,5l. Gave fra Rune. Aprikosfarget. Uklar. OK kremaktig skum. Urtearoma. Brukbart fyldig smak. Samme urtepreg. Lite annet. Søtlig, tørr ettersmak. Flaskestudie avsløret at urtepreget er kamomille. Ikke min smak. KI=5

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml bottle @den gode nabo. Slightly dim golden body with a nice but fast diminishing white head. Aroma is fantastic, fruity and floral, sweet toffee and alcohol. Flavor is almost extreme sweet, light malty with molasses, fruity, spicy, flowers, decent bitter and quite alcoholic. Palate feels fat and almost sticky. Aftertaste is mainly sweet with warming alcohol. The first few sip feels like a really pleasant beer for sipping. Unfortunately I was alone with my bottle and actually had to struggle to finish it all. After finishing the bottle I was not able to drink any more beer and feels almost like after eating one kilo of marzipan or something. I had to reduce my originally score some points, normally I’m quite capable to drink this amount of sweet beers, but this one where far above my capasity. Sorry.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle, by courtesy of OleR. First pour is almost clear, grey-golden. Last pour is just muddy. Good amount of white foamy head with enduring qualities. Pleasant smell of coriander, wheat, notes of hay and dried fruits like figs. The taste brings sweet, spiced wheat with a touch of floral hops and faint yeast. Sweet fruity endnotes and overall rather sweet. Almost full bodied but not that heavy to drink. Has got its moments of drinking joy (hotel room, Oslo 07.02.2011).

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Half pint at Cardinal’s "Onsdag i Annen". Pours hazy golden with moderate head. Real sweet. Tastes of tropical fruits, marzipan, sugars and wheat. Quite heavy but a good dessert ale, if served in small aperitif glasses. My half pint was too much.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Cammomille tea? No- a deceivingly smooth beer, perfumed with flowers. Quite heavy, almost oily. Pleasant drinking, but the flowers would be more appropriate toa 5% beer. As a summer aperitif, maybe?

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.5l bottle from Valken, Bergen. Pours a hazy darkish golden body, with a solid wheat-head. I get some yeast, sweet banana and bacon! Strange.. Medium to full-bodied with low carbonation. Nice warming alcohol not well hidden but really nice, some chocolate hints and orange peel. Must admit that I’m not sure how chamomile tastes, but I’m sure the strange flowery taste is just that. Refreshing and a bit different wheat ale because of the quite clear sweet alcohol notes. Want more of this!
