4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle, reviewed from notes. Pours a beautiful, slightly hazy light orange with a good, bubbly, slowly receding creamy colored head. Very pretty. The aroma is smooth and rich in tropical, hoppy fruit. The flavor starts off with with a sharp, citrusy bite, accompanied by more fruityness, rolling off into a doughy, bready, slightly sour aftertaste that fades quickly. Very nice. Medium carbonation, light on the palate. A refreshing, almost sour-ish quirky little bastard of a pale ale. I like it.

Well its mikkeller and they have ruined ipa’s for me b/c that hopps mix is just too good. I was expecting much more of a fruit blast after reading mango and passionsfrugt og gær, which i can’t pronounce, but it was a mikkeller with some fruity hints. That’s all. I mean it’s still really good, but not what I was expecting.

Bottle at Amundsen, spring 2012. Hazy orange body with a creamy offwhite head. Aroma is hoppy with pine and mango, and caramel. Taste of mango, grapefruit, biscuit. Nice bitterness lasting through to the end in a grassy aftertaste.

Very interesting beer. Very unique, but nothing too great. Certainly worth trying!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Small offwhite head. Hazy deep amber body. Deep mealy tropical fruit aroma with resiny notes. Dry-sweet, and slightly acidic, tropical fruit and oranges taste- Mid-to-full body. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish, and slightly acidic, wooden oranges and tropical fruit aftertaste with mealy notes. Good, but marred by acidity. (0.4l draft at Amundsen, Oslo.)

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml brown bottle. Pours out orange, hazy. Off white head with medium sized bubbles. Some modest lace. Big fruity nose, getting the mango sweetness and a zippy passionfruit. Fruity taste, mango and orange peel up front, peach. Finishes with some grains, light bitterness, some tangy grapefruit peel. Medium body with zippy carbonation. Decent beer, interesting fruit notes, but not something I would have more of one of in a sitting.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Beer colour with an ugly tan bubbly head that thankfully vanished. Speed review. Shnozz: heavy on the tropical, papaya, almost soap candy (from The Bay), soft citrus now that it’s warmer. Yap: sharp and acidic and bitter, tropical, pineapple for a second on occasion, mango, odd and not very drinkable. Creamy, oily, dry, acidic, soft and harsh. Sharp finish. Very unique and interesting but I am not a fan at all. Not really balanced.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy honey brown with a thick white skiff floating on top. WHA WHA WHA What did i just smell? Apricot, maybe apple pie, or is it white grape juice, peach? So thick, so fruity, so drool inducing, so much yum. Every thing I said I smell I taste but with a sour dryness. Taste has a vinegar quality that I wish wasn’t there. Lots of honey showing up now, floral perfume to. Wish this tasted as good as the epic aroma. Daaaaa..... Brew is going down hill the more I drink I wish it stayed as awesome as the first sniff but the sweetness and perfume flavors are starting to bug me.

On tap at Amundsen. Slight hazy orange colour with a very small head. Aroma is hoppy and laden with tropical fruits. Flavour is bitter with some sweet notes. Lots of tropical fruits again. Hints of water. The aftertaste really lingers for a long time.
