2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Flaske på Cardinaltreff april-13: hipp hurra for et nytt norsk mikrobrygger, og i tillegg et som satser på belgiske ølstiler! Innbydende farge og skum. Balansert og myk munnfylde, men 4,7 er litt snaut for å få en god belgisk feeling.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Shared bottle at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours hazed reddish, with a moderate sized white head . Aroma is malty, caramel and nutty. Taste is surprisingly full for a 4,7 % beer, still light bodied, watery mouthfeel, light dry hoppy end.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Shared bottle at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 4.7%. Reddish brown colour, large off-white head. Nice aroma of brown kandij sugar, caramel and dust, a hint of mild spices. Thin mouthfeel for a "Belgian" ale. Fairly dry flavour, malts and some caramel, easy drinking but not impressive.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber beer. Red berries. Bittersweet, well balanced, dry finish. Complex, yet highly drinkable. A splendid start for a new brewery.
