3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Gold with a merange like head. Big aroma of peaches and spices. Lots of fruit flavour without too much spice. I prefer it like this. The spices do however contribute to an excellent bitter finish. I don’t usually like this style but I really liked this regardless of this bottle not being trappist. Probably the best of this style I’ve drunk. Much, much better than the Jopen blonde I had recently.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the SAQ. Poured a hazy blond ale with a medium white head that disappear quickly. The aroma is pretty subtel but reveal interesting notes of spices, sweet malt, and honey. Taste is well malted, not too sweet, with a nice coriande touchr and a long spicy, sweet and somewhat bitter aftertaste. Palate is a little shy of being medium. Good.

Pours an attractive hazy golden color with a thin white head. Overall taste is very smooth and sweet with spices mentioned in smell. A little fuzzy and warm.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, best before September 2006, so I guess it has stayed quite a few months at the Norwegian state liquor store outlet. Orange and hazy with a decent offwhite head. Fruity aroma with cellar notes. Piney hops. Sweet cellar flavours, dryish finish. Some spiciness. Maybe not a bottle in tip-top shape, but the beer is still highly drinkable.
