3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Pours a hazy orange colour with a small off-white head. Sweet and fruity aromas with a distinct touch of spices and coriander, herbs and banana. The fruity flavour is dominated by grains, hops, spices and some sweet corn. Feels a bit unbalanced but gets better after a couple of mouthfuls. Soft and sparkly mouthfeel. Bitterness = light+. A good mix of IPA and wheat ale, but more a spicy wheat ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 5.5%. Wheaty bubble gum aroma. Cloudy orange colour. Big stable off-white head. The flavour is quite bitter with a wheat and bubble gum finish. Rather bitter, but does not have the aroma hop I would expect from the name.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium amber body with a faint haze. The off-white head is frothy, short-lived and doesn’t leave very much lacing. Moderate to faint aroma that is sweet and has distinct malty, hoppy and yeasty notes. Very wheat beer-ish aroma with some sweet fruits and spices. The taste is moderate sweet with a moderate bitter finish. The flavours are a bit less wheaty than the aroma. Sweet fruits and citric notes, caramel and faint resin. Medium body and carbonation, smooth, light dry and pleasant mouthfeel. An interesting mix of styles and a nice beer.

Bottle. An unclear golden beer with a quickly diminishing off-white head and good lacings. The aroma is quite fruity, with notes of banana, wheat lemon and orange peal. The flavor is sweet with a hoppy, very bitter and dry finish. Refreshing and fruity.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (33cl) from Oslo Mekaniske Verksted. Small offwhite head. Hazy orange/amber colour. Aroma of hops, fruit, yeast. Successful combination of IPA and wheat beer, where the wheat provides a refeshing sweetness that nicely balances the hop bitterness.
