Draft to taster at Kuhnhenn. Looks good; a transparent golden orange with foamy white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of Belgian yeast and fruity hops with a bit of spice. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ Henrik, Bergen. Hazy light orange body, small white head. Nose is banana, almond essence, sweet sugary tones and hints of alcohol and caramel. Taste is banana, coconut, caramel and hints of alcohol and biscuity malts. Full body, medium carbonation. Strange sweet stuff; not bad but where is the Simcoe? All I get is massive Belgian banana-dominated ester tones and tons of sweetness.
