3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours hazy out of the bottle. Tastes great, single hop variety is the way to go. I get a bit of acetone in the fragrance, but nothing that is too overbearing. Hops are dry, tastes flora, spruce as well.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy dark amber color with a moderate off-white head. Nose has a very slight hint of floral elements underneath a very earthy nose. Taste is quite bitter and dry, actually.

Pours opaque amber with off-white head. Nose is mostly coconut and pineapple with woody, barrel undertone. Full-bodied and creamy, tasting of barrel aging, mild floral hoppiness and a dry spiciness.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Fra flaske på Humle i Annen mars-13: sjette av i alt 19 i serien, og denne luktet sylteagurk og dill. Smaker heldigvis bedre enn den lukter, men minner for mye om rå champignon til å bli en nytelse.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle @ home. A bit hazy orange color, small white to off-white head that diminishes fairly quickly. Smell malts, some hops, a slight touch of herbal sweetness. Taste malts, hops, bitter. A bit weird aftertaste imo. Not bad but a bit weird. Medium body and carbonation.

Hazy amber beer, decent size head. Light palate, crispy. Sharp fresh Sorachi Ace - bitterish lemon with a trace of marmalade and a whisper of lime. Malt cream. Semi dry finish. Fab!

Bottle from AV2. Slightly murky deep orange pour. Aroma and taste was tropical fruit, spearmint, slight pine, and some floral elements. Quite tasty - I dug this.

33 cl corked bottle @ home. Pours clear amber with an off-white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma is exotic fruits, bubble gum, caramel, and pepper. Flavour is much like the aroma – with a dry finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled (thanks papsoe!). Hazy orange colour, small white head. Aroma is grassy, herbal, floral and mild bready malts. Flavour is mild toffee, some grass, mild floral notes as well as some slight acidic notes. Good single hop from Mikkeller, though Sorachi Ace is one of my least favourite hops...
