2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Henriks. It’s a lightly hazy one, orange-golden in color and with a dense finger-thick off-white head. The aroma has a decent lager touch, with apple fruityness and a faint malt note. Semi-dry on the palate, soft carbonation, semi-dry. Apple juice and some pils in the flavor. Fruity finish. I like the dryness, else it’s very uninteresting. 140615

On tap @ Henrik, Bergen. Hazy amber-orange body, small white head. Nose is apples, pale malts, hints of straw and bready yeast tones. Taste is pale malts, apple juice, bitter apple peel, hints of straw and yeast. Light body and carbonation. A weird mix of apple juice and pilsener.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Draught at the Hilpeä Hauki, Helsinki, Finland.
Cloudy golden colour with a tiny white head.
Some strange fruity notes and some malt in the aroma. Sourness, tartness and some mild sweetness in a quite bad mixture. Also some sweetener notes in the aftertaste. Can’t find much apple. Unfortunately. Bad.

Elderberry? There is something nice in it though and the sourness is ok, not a winner, still a good beer.

Fris van smaak. Een klein zuurtje maar zonder dat het onaangenaam wordt. Beetje troebel en prettig in de mond

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Draught at Mikkeller Bar Stockholm, 29 March 2014) Golden colour with frothy, white head. Malty, fruity nose with grain, green apples and sour fruits. Malty, fruity taste with notes of grain, grass, green apples and a gentle bitterness in a finish with a light sourness. Medium body, with balanced sweetness. Interesting beer with a fresh apple character, but probably not the best idea from Mikkeller. Quite enjoyable.

Flavours were sourness, stale apple juice and bitterness. Aftertaste was sour and bitter. Horrible combination of ingredients.
