Very interesting and intriguing aroma of yeast, smoked malt, spices and herbs. Pours a cloudy orangey golden color with a medium white head. In the flavor, the smoked malt reminds me of smoked herring, there’s a good dose also of herbs and spices and some yeast. There’s mild bitterness in the end. The body is medium with a creamy texture and medium carbonation. This is unique and unexpected, I like that!

Bottle. Mostly clear copper orange with lasting head that starts fizzy and settle in dense. Smoky grainy caramel aroma with a hint of soap. Smoky malty grainy caramel malt and mild sweet fruit with mild grainy lingering smoky finish. Soft mouthfeel. A real complex smokey treat. Excellent.

Ravfarvet med stort flott skum. Fyldig aroma av tropisk frukt og karamell, samt mye gjÃ¦r. Mye gjÃ¦r ogsÃ¥ i munnen, med boe alkohol. Ellers god fylde, med integrert syre og sÃ¸dme. God lengde. (Jomfruland, 30.09.13)

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2013 Pours a hazy orange colour with a huge, dense white head that lasts for a really long time; pour this one carefully, or you’ll have to wait for the head to settle down. There’s also a lot of bubbles and visible fizziness going on in the glass. This one’s filled to the brim with aromas, but the most prominent is a musty aroma that reminds me of hay and barnyards and quite a bit of fruitiness with plums, or maybe apples. The hops give it a citrus-like aroma in the aftertaste, and there’s a hint of smokiness as well. The taste is semi-sweet with a noticeable dry bitterness, and the mouthfeel is slick and heavy, even with a high level of carbonation.

Pours a deep clean copper color with a big frothy eggshell foam. On the nose there a nice complex cacophony of smoky grain, big maltiness, a touch of honey sweetness and a bit of musty farmhouse notes. The palate follows the nose with a nice bit of citrus mixed in to adding a bit of quenching refreshment to the rustic grainy beer. Tasty harvest ale !
