visionthing (4776) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 23, 2012
On tap at Olympen (2010-08-14). Slightly hazy orange with a small white head. Fruity, but a little weak on flavour. Nice, but a little light, even out in the sun at the terrace of Lompa. Anyway nice and easy to drink and a it was nice to have some decent beer before entering Øyafestivalen.

On tap @ Håndverkstuene. Hazy, dark orange body with a small off-white head. Nice and fresh aroma of oranges, peaches and grapefruit with some yeast and a small hint of caramel. Flavor is refreshing as well, citric fruity like aroma, spicy, yeast and also some caramel in the background. The orange flavor and bitterness is more prominent in the aftertaste. A nice and refreshing ale for the summertime, very enjoyable.

Rune (11120) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 27, 2010
350ml draught at Olympen. Hazy, orange coloured body covered by a tiny, white layer. Spiced citric fruits to the nose. Fruity taste with lemon and oranges, added by notes of drying yeast. Rather sweet, but still refreshing and thirst quenching (Oslo, 06.08.2010).

Kestral (506) - Årnes, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2010
Tap@Olympen. Dark, hazy yellow/orange with a small white head that fades quickly. Looks rather flat. A good bit of yeast in the aroma, some acidic fruitiness, weak smokiness and a hint of alcohol. Sweet on the tongue, almost wheat like sweetness, bread, green apples, light smoke, fruity sweetness, with a nice fruity and slightly spiced bitter hop finish. This is actually pretty yummy. Light bodied, sparse carbonation. Overall an easy to like sessioner that shouldn’t offend anyone. Should have had a bit heftier body and a bit more carbonation.

larsga (7293) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 7, 2010
Small offwhite head. Hazy amber body. Oily mealy bananaish aroma with strawberry notes. Dry mealy fruity floral taste with peppery strawberry notes. Later, when the beer warms (it was served nearly frozen), smoky notes appear, as well as floral hops. Light body. Mealy mouthfeel. Dry mealy floral aftertaste with oily notes. Low on flavour, a bit harsh, but light and drinkable even so. (0.35l draft, Olympen, Oslo.)
