Svesse (6065) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 14, 2009
(Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm, 12 June 2009) Pale amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of apricots, orange peel and caramel. Malty, fruity taste with orange, apricots, caramel and lots of earthy, citrussy hops in a long, bitter finish. More than medium body, fairly sweet. Great balance. Yet another lovely, hoppy beer from Närke. Brilliant.

Jonte (1413) - Gothenburg, SWEDEN - MAY 20, 2009
On-tap. The Rover. Gothenburg. Orange colour with an off-white head. The aroma feels a little weak. Taste of hops, grape, sweet fruit, caramel malt. Creamy and medium bodied. Unfortunately it has a light smokiness that lowers the score a bit.

Maria (10136) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 3, 2007
Golden with a huge, nice and creamy head. The aroma is fruity with notes of citrus and caramel. The flavour has a nice caramel base, that’s smooth and slightly sweet, and it’s fruity with notes of peach and lots of citrus and a nice grapefruit-bitterness. Charming indeed. 2427

ekstedt (5395) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2011 Bottle. Hazy amber with a fluufy off-white head. Creamy and toffeish malt mixes well with strong floral hops, and some fruity notes as well. Medium bodied and very smooth. Excellent balance with a long bitter finish. Another great beer from närke, though it feels more like a strong IPA than a DIPA.

Rastacouere (6125) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 3, 2007
Bottle at Oliver Twist little improvised festival for the Denmark-Sweden Football matchup of June 2nd. Fine yellowy head covers the pretty gold opaque pour. Hop oils are intense in the nose that is piney sappy and boasts massive orange and fresh pink grapefruits. Behind that scene, malts are mostly pale, but upon tasting, the crystals are reveales in their strong sweetness, also rather juicy, so it integrates quite well. The palate is a tiny bubble foam, hugely comfortable and rolling on the tongue without a bite. Meanwhile, citrus flavours expand amidst floral notes. The sweetness clearly fades while the thickness stays and the path is opened for a strikingly long finish and ultimately balanced bitterness, a zesty, mandarine-like finish.

thebeertourist (4778) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 27, 2007
Small bottle@The Rover, Gothenburg. Hazy orangey colour with a big Duvel-like head, though more offwhite-coloured. Fruity hop aroma, mostly grapefruit, but also apples. Very fruity flavours, even a hint of oranges, solid bitterness. Full-bodied, good carbonation. More an IPA than the hoogblond the name alludes to. Great!

Bov (9429) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - APR 9, 2007
courtesy of Per Samuelsson - slightly amber colour and a little foam; huge hoppy aroma showing notes of apricot and cream; full-bodied, lively and soft palate, some sweetness before a powerful bitterness; very long hoppy, fruity finish - a hop bomb which manages to be balanced; what a beer !

profane (40) - ITALY - FEB 15, 2007
Draught. Cloudy appereance. Hoppy. Strong alcohol and a very little aroma of lemon washing powder (maybe was the glass!)
