3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle… Cloudy burnt orange ale with a small, fat-bubbled, white head. The acidic, woody bouquet offers white oak, red wine vinegar, funky cheese, apricot and a whisper of vanilla. Medium to full-bodied with a skim-milk mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The woody, acidic flavor provides nice tanginess and fruitiness flanked by yeasty bitterness. Finishes tangy, bristly and dry. Bottle courtesy of darkguardian!

Bottle (50cl) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Slightly hazy, reddish golden colour. Small, bubbly head, disappearing almost completely. Tart and fruity ’Nordic’ aroma - arctic bramble, cowberry, raspberry, strawberry, cherry, barnyard. Taste is juicy and acidic, but balanced by a discreet sweetness and some tannic bitterness. Medium body and carbonation. Very refreshing and drinkable.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma is slightly tart oranges and apples, but there is also a slight sugar note. The flavor is similar, with a lot of sour lemons as well as some wheat notes. Low to medium sourness and very drinkable. Very dry. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Glad I got to try this one.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Orange body; next to no head. It does smell like a lambic; also the Haand house wood. Very interesting. Sort of like an unblended. Doesn’t taste like any lambic I’ve ever had, except maybe Bruocsella Grand Cru because it is so flat. Lots of house character again, a little bit of rubber and maybe smoke. Real nice.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Thin head on dirty dark copper-amber. First sniff is a HUGE punch of sour cherry wood and cheese. Flavor kind of flat. Cherries are silent and cheese is left to carry the load. As you drink the woody cherry note competes with the cheese but overall lacking in sharpness and briteness. The best part is a decent sourness that sinks in between the teeth.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[bottle] shared by skyview. Pours a nice garnet with a small, soapy eggshell head. Aroma is odd. Smoky, woody, sweaty sock, light lactic and acetic character. Flavor is pretty similar to the aroma. Smoky, bacon, lightly lactic, just odd.
