Flaske hos Ole Anders mai-13: lukter lÝsemidler synes Sigmund men vi er ikke helt enige. Lys gylden og litt uklar, kortvarig skum. Antydning til bringebśrsyltetÝy i en ellers noe diffus smak.

330 ml bottle, kindly shared by abemorsten. Hazy pale golden colour, moderate white head. Aroma of solvents, grain and Belgian yeast. Grainy flavour with some fruit, stale jam in the finish. Hardly any bitterness.Not very pleasant.

Hazy blond with quick fading head. Has quite a raw, malty flavour with a fair amount of yeast too.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from beernavigator.com. Best before date nov 2013. Very nice aroma. Didnít have much expectations on this one since I canít remember if I had it before. Large head. Enjoy the aroma that has some honey in it together with the more typical belgian sour aroma. The honey goes away pretty soon. Rotate the glass and it comes back. The taste is more typical belgian ale. Could have it again but its not that exciting. Malts but no real hops.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330 ml, brown long neck bottle. Poured into a tulip glass at home. ABV 4,5%
Orabge colour, very muddy and hazy, with lots of tiny bits floating around in the body. One finger at most of white head, with very low retention.
Oh, wow, bad aroma of goat cheese that has gone bad along with boiled cauliflower. I would rate it even lower, but itís saved since I didnít puke.
Same on the taste, a bad cheese flavour, along with wort.
Light to medium body, light carbonation.
Overall, I believe this is the worst beer Iíve tried from Jopen, a brewery that I honestly like. Maybe the worst beer I have ever tried too, as I canít remember another beer giving me nausea feelings, except of a gluten-free one. 8/20 only because it made me realize how lucky we are beer brewing has advanced.

Bottle@Home. A bit too grainy and a bitter boring. But certainly more hoppy than a regular lager (belgian ale??).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy amber brown, fading white head. Aroma and taste nice combination of hop and caramel malts, with some overripe fruit. Body is not that well, bit watery.
