3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very cloudy bright yellow with a thinner white head. The aroma has some mild spices, coriander, wheat, grains, and slight banana. The taste gives a somewhat Belgian impression. It contains spices and wheat on top, to go along with banana and a little bit of lemon and orange. Short aftertaste of lemon and wheat. It has a bit of tartness at the end. This has a medium to light body. It has a sudsy texture, with softer carbonation. Its actually pretty refreshing to drink. I’ll admit that I was expecting far less from this one. I’m happy I was wrong.

Flaske 0,5l på ølseminar i Tårnrommet 13 Nov 13. Uklar. Lys aprikosfarget. Tett skum som varer. Forsiktig sitrusaroma. Litt banan. Smaken er mye banan. Litt søt - men avslutter passe syrlig.

500ml bottle shared with friends. White stable head, a wheat haze to a pale golden body. Spotty lacing. Sweet fruity nose added by wheat and spices. Perfumed taste of sweet fruits, wheat and coriander. A touch of dry tartness to the ending, still very much on the sweet side. Drinkable (November grain session, Tromsø 13.11.2013).

Opaque golden yellow with decent white foam head. Aroma does not have too many citrus notes which you would expect. Taste is quite fresh, some citrus not much. Fresh aftertaste. (Kiev 201310)

Flaske på RB samling hjemme (takk til Petro): en aromatisk og velsmakende ufiltrert hveteøl, og den sto godt opp mot min spicy bryggerisuppe. Godkjent og vel så det rundt hele bordet.
