3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle looks complex, but interesting. Beer in the glass zippy, small head. Fruity aroma. Starts mild, malty-sweet with fine fruity notes. A bit salty. Dry background. More and more sourish. Finish well balanced, fruity, mild sourish. Notes of grapefruit. Good beer!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml capped bottle pours a golden orange color with a massive white head that leaves some nice thick lacing behind. Aroma is light fruits with some yeast and citrus. Taste is a fruity and malty sweetness with a mild citrusy hop bitterness with hints of yeast. Medium bodied with some nice carbonation providing a nice sensation on the palate. Taste is about average for the style, but the appearance is exceptional.

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2014 Bottle@pr√¶stemosen. Gift from Gert. Light amber haze. One finger fine bubble foam. Plenty of complex fruity aromas. Orange bitterness dominates the taste. Plenty of undefined spicyness. Strange but nice brew. Retasted tobak 20/5/14. Very coriander.
Retasted Knut 13/6/14. Weak Bread wheat aromas. Cereal taste sekond FU. Dry-sweet finish.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
750ml bottle bought at Kihoskh.
Hazy golden color, a bit clear for a wit. Big foamy white head.
Aroma of cardamom, yeast, citrus and pepper. Taste is mostly the same, with a sweet spicy element I canít define, though itís not toilet, which is a good thing. A clever spice approach on a wit.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
75cl shared by Alexcg. Cloudy golden with a white head. Intense aroma of spices, especially cardamom. Malt is noticable, but nose and flavour is dominated by spices. Strange, but quite nice. Sweet with a slightly dry and quite spicy finish.

75 cl bottle @ home. Pours slightly cloudy orange with some sediment and a big white head that fades leaving a lot of lacing. Aroma is spices, orange peel, wheat, yeast, and subtle hops. Taste is very similar to the aroma.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from a shop in Copenhagen. Spicy and herbal smell. Similar taste with a herbal btiterness. Taste a bit like the schnaps Beska droppar. Peppery aftertaste. A bit to spicy for my taste. A bit christmasy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, courtesy of Mogens (whose RB nick Iíve forgotten, but heís not really that active anyway...) - cheers man! :-) Slightly hazy golden body, medium creamy white head. Aroma is rich noble hop tones (Saaz?) floral light herbal tones, hints of citric peels, coriander and heather. Taste is floral sweet honey straw tones, almost like a tripel but more pilsener-like in its hop mode. Hints of citrus, coriander and Belgian candi sugars. Nice. Body is light and drinkable, with moderate carbonation. Pretty solid.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.75l bottle from BrewDog webshop. The pour on this one is at first, clear and golden, but down the bottle it got really really cloudy and hazy. The body has lots and lots of unfiltered particles, tons of them actually - making the beer just look insane, and there is also a great looking heavy lacing just off-white head. The aroma is citrusy with tones of grounded coriander seeds and it feels quite spicy. Like in Christmas-spices I think. Lots of it actually! Is it nutmeg? Could be nutmeg.. Itís also light fruity with tones of biscuits as well. Yeah, itís kinda interesting. It feels kinda blend and watery in the texture and it has a soft to average carbonation level. Spicy nutmeg flavors as well. No, wait! Its cardamom! Yeah, thatís what it is! Tones of mouthdrying orange zest and definitely some coriander seeds here. What kind of beer is this really? Some kind of strange cousin of a wit perhaps? Well, I donít know, but I know that I somewhat liked it even though itís definitely a bit weird. 14.03.2012
