2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Serious gushing. Pours yellow golden with a decent white head, looks good. Pretty nice aromas, light malt, some floral and a tiny bit of esters. Some decent malt in the taste as well, but turns watery and a bit sourbitter at the end. Not bad at all, but too expensive, and half the contents of the bottle spewed out upon opening.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: NOV 28, 2015 Bottiglia @ Simei 2015, Milano. Il gusto al naso dichiara mais, malto, una nota fruttata, miele d’acacia, caramellato e agrume. L’intensità olfattiva è elevata e la persistenza olfattiva è discreta. Il cappello di schiuma a bollicine fini e media carbonazione possiede discreta resistenza con finale di merletti sul vetro. La sottostante frizzantezza è a bollicine fini. Il colore è ambrato. Il corpo è rotondo. L’amaro è medio. L’intensità gustativa è normale: in bocca inizialmente si sente il dolce e poi l’amaro in salita, resinoso, con una nota floreale. La persistenza gustativa è sufficiente. Il gusto è piacevole. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di facile beva. Il finale è amarognolo, lungo e semplice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle from Millevini, Venezia.
Amber-orange, hazy body, with a big, frothy, rocky, off-white head.
Aroma of grains, bread, honey, some citrus and slight other fruits.
Tastes of grains, grass, herbs, some honey, some medicine, slight lemon zest.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes bitter, herbal, quite dry, zesty, with some honey.
OK. Smell is quite good, taste is a bit too herbal for me. Nothing special, slightly above average lager beer.

deep golden. Clearly Belgian yeast in the nose, with some hop and malt character but not too distinctive. The mouth has a touch of band aid. Malty. Really undistinguished.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Pours a hazy dark orange colour with a big soapy off-white head. Aroma of hay, pale malt, citrus and Belgian yeast. Fruity flavour of pear, sweet malt and marzipan. Has a rich and slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A fruity, rich and good beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle picked up at Vinmonopolet Vika in Oslo and carried back home. Partially gushing content. Big rocky, white head slowly collapsing over a muddy, orange coloured body. Fruit and grain to the nose. Taste of mid-sweet, earthy malts, a little lactose and spices on a backbone of subdued yeasty fruitiness. Dry spiced fruity ending. Easy to drink. Just alright (Tromsø, 25.04.2013).

0.5l bottle shared with The Tasting Crew. Light cloudy in the glass with a big off-white top and some big chunky sediments. Flour and fruits on the nose. A little bit of wheat as well. The aroma is not that bad at all. It’s average on the carbonation and thin oily on the mouthfeel. A bit herbal and floral flavors. I get more of that wheat, some grains before It ends quite dry in the mouth. Straight forward, easy to drink but not especially memorable. 31.03.2013

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden and hazy with loads of floaties. Relatively low head formation. Mellow aroma of white bread, maize and malts. Taste is mellow and rather bland, some subdued maltyness and low bitterness.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew. Pours a hazy light orange body with a small white head. Nose is mild floral heather tones with pale malts and light lactic hints. Taste is floral heather-like herbal tones with pale malts and hints of chamomile and grains. Medium body and carbonation. Fair enough, but fails to make a lasting impression.

Aromas of golden earth--hay, straw--, toffee, and bread. Golden-orange, with off-white head foam. Some sweetness, balanced nicely by a soft bitterness. Light-medium bodied with average carbonation, and finishes pretty clean with some lingering caramel and yeasty/fruity flavors.
