3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small white head. Slightly hazy coppery body. Fruity herbal floral aroma with strawberry chewing gum notes. Sweetish strawberry and banana candy taste with mealy earthy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, faintly mealy mouthfeel. Dryish oily strawberry aftertaste with earthy mealy grassy notes. Nice and drinkable, but perhaps the yeast has gone a little overboard here. (0.5l bottle, Olympen, Oslo.)

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
0.5 L bottle @Olympen, Oslo. Instantly dying greyish blond head. Cloudy, dirty brown body. Weak aroma. Faint yellow fruits and a vague hint of nuts, or maybe marzipan. Light watery mouthfeel. Feels thin in the mouth. Sugary sweetness in a light malt body. Pepper tones and hint of yellow fruits. Sugar sweet ending. Not very impressive, but matched quite well with my steak tartare.

Fruity aroma. Malty, full bodied. Alcohol, malt, Belgian yeast.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at Olympen. Bright clear golden color, small white head, fair lacing. Aroma of caramel and straw. Taste has a sweet start, lots of malt and bread, bitter finish. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle shared with Eirik at Olympen. Decent white head with a moderate stand. Cloudy, very cloudy, orange-gold body. The smell is spicy with coriander and sweet fruits. Ripe banana and spiced fruits in flavour alongside doughy malts. More sweet fruits too the finish. Medium bodied. Alright, but a tad too sweet in the long run (Oslo, 09.04.2012).
