3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Herbal hops, biscuity, English, very original actually. Medium (and therefore more than expected) bitter, herbal spicy but not Belgian, more from the malt combo is my expectation. Drinks very well, even with this different taste profile. Bit tea like even, with tanines. Nice to try. (On tap at La Fine Mouse)

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Clear golden body with a small white head. Sweet honey aroma with weak fruity hops. Taste is grainy, light metallic with vanilla notes, again very subtle hopped, light bitterness, short malty and sweet finish. Quite boring and disappointing from start to finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.5l bottle. Looks good this with a big white lasting and slightly lacing head over a mildly cloudy and golden looking body. Smells like a mixed of a herb spiced and a wit. Lots of wheat sweetness and coriander but also some peppery lemongrass and metal. Not horrible at all, but a bit confusing perhaps. I like it. What kind of beverage is this really? Doesn’t taste bad at all. A bit fruity and pilsner-melon in the taste. Traces of alcohol and lots of pale malts. Quite pleasant to drink really relly. Ends in a soft grassy hoppy finish, some sweetness also here. Yeah, I like this even if I have no idea what I’m drinking. 12.04.2014

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
500ml bottle. Slightly hazy amber color. No head. Sweet, yeasty, sour aroma. Sourish, fruity, sweet taste. Sourish caramelly yeast in aftertaste. That’s just bad.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at GJBF Osaka 2014. Sorachi Ace very apparent in nose; seems slick and sweet. A rounded malt sweetness in initial. The Sorachi gives it a strong hop tea note. Hopping runs right down the middle of the tongue. Deep, solid, and fruity. Quite good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaske 550ml fra Vinmonopolet, Tromsø Sentrum. Gyldenbrun. Høyt luftig skum som daler sakte. Kniplingslacing. God aroma av pepper & ingefær. Smaken har det samme sammensatte krydderpreget. 0 kullsyre. Bra - men blir litt endimensjonal. Tungdrikkelig etter hvert.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
550ml bottle, pours light golden brown wth lively carbonation and a small white head. Aroma is distinct with belgian style yeast, spice, dill & coriander, thick caramel malt and hoppy character from the Sorachi Ace. Palate is rich and full for a lager. This is quite complex and unusual, and pleasant. Unusual but not amazing.
