4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap poured into a sampler. The aroma holds lots of herb and citrus peel. Itís a dry aroma with some bread and a cucao like note. It pours an oily, clear pale with a white, small suds head. A thick to medium ring and fuzzy island are retained an a thin, dense lace is left on the glass. The taste is a balanced medium-high sweet and bitter. The texture is oily with medium full body and light, soft fuzz carbonation. Toasty flavors emerge on the palate along with citrus, spice, and pine. Itís a dry, crisp finish with a citrus, tropical, and pine blend for an aftertaste.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Poured amber/gold with a good amount of white fluffy head. Decent lace. Aroma is subdued citrus hops and grains. Full citrus hop flavor. Grapefruit, orange, pineapple with a different kind of zing that I will attribute to the rice. Medium bodied in the mouth with a crisp, bitter finish. Interesting.

On tap @ Henrik, Bergen. Pours a slightly hazy light orange body with a small white head. Nose is peaches, white chewing gum, sweet grains and hints of resin, pumpkin pie and clove. Taste is red berries, honey, soapy hops, white sugar and hints of resin and melon. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. A bit strange, but fair enough.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Henrik. A lightly unclear light golden beer with a small, dense, white head. The aroma is quite hoppy, with citrus, peaches, pine cones and a sweetish maltyness. Itís lightly sweet on the palate, with bitterness enough to deal with it. Peaches, pine cones, resins and some grass notes. Lasting bitter finish. A bit alcoholic this one, but nice anyway. 140906
