330 ml bottle. Murky brown with beige head. This bottle was a bit oxidized. Aroma of malt, caramel, bread and floral hops plus the cringy oxidized notes. Taste is sweet and malty, full taste with fairly low bitterness. Finish is bready and caramelly.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
The appearance is not too flattering, looking like something we get from hepatitis. Fishy flavour behind the rather seemingly synthetic aroma of fruits. No good. Reminded me of my disastrous experience with the Achel Bruin.

Flaske delt med Ovesen: fint skum og vakker kobberrød/brun farge med en mild aroma av maltsødme og humle (Poperingse). En riktig deilig frokostdubbel som gir oss en fin start på bryggeridagen.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a brown-red color, clear liquid with a very minimal head.
It smelled like red wine and cherry.
Tasted a bit bitter with a light body, thin watery texture and an average to lively carbo. Overall a mediocre beer

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Apr 2012 - Marketed as an abbey ale, but tastes more like a dark lager. Very mild, a slight ’watery’ taste like you get with lighter beers. Alright, but wouldn’t rush to buy again.
