COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nils Oscar Sorachi Blond är kryddad med den japanska humlesorten Sorachi som ger en rik doft av citrus. Just humlen i denna brygd är odlad i USA. Den komplexa aromen förstärks med dofter av enbär och koriander. Jästen är av belgiskt ursprung. Dock är det mer välhumlat än vad den belgiska traditionen bjuder. Utöver detta innehåller ölet flera olika sorters kornmalt och vetemalt. Ölet är fylligt med stor rondör och inte filtrerat. Det passar utmärkt till både ljust kött, fågel, stekt fisk och naturligtvis i ensamt majestät.

Skinnyviking (7069) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2010
Draught. Low creamy and quickly disappearing off-white head. Clear amber body. Apple pear peach caramel aroma. Fairly hoppy fruity caramel flavor with low carbonation and a long bitter sweet aftertaste.

Sample at SBWF 2010. A little heavy malts for a saison (which is what they claim it to be) and they are also to heavy to really let the delicate sorachi hops contribute to their fullest. It’s still a decent beer, but it could be so much more.

Rune (8077) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 10, 2010
Draught, 300ml, perfectly served lightly chilled at Glenfiddich Warehouse in Gamla Stan. Near clear, amber coloured body under a slowly fading, white tophead. Smooth aroma of died fruits and herbal hops. Fresh fruity taste with hints of dried fruits breaking through supported by lighter notes of caramel malts. Lingering fruit bitterness to the ending. Medium bodied. Quite enjoyable drinking before mid day (Stockholm, 27.07.2010).

gnoff (7860) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2010
Draught at GW68, Stockholm
On August 4, 2010
Hazy copper color, fluffy lasting light brown head. Phenolic, sweet, light metallic taste; fruity, bitter, herbal, cream aftertaste.
Starts off like a Belgian Blonde, finishes almost like an IPA. A bit sweeter with a less dry finish and for me it would’ve been excellent! Still good though.
Phenolic, creamy, malty scent. Also some banana esters in the smell. Smooth mouthfeel, medium high bitterness. Some acidity in the taste also, bringing a bit of astringency to the mouthfeel.
It’s a bit "spretig" (all over the place), not balanced in the way I appreciate it most. But all in all a rather nice beer.
I’m not sure what style I’d call this one, perhaps a "Belgian style IPA"? Tone down the bitterness, loose the acidty, add some more sweetness and caramel, and it would, for my taste, turn from rather nice to very nice.
For those that don’t care for "true" Belgian Blondes, the smaller notes of phenoles with the higher bitterness level might be a true hit?
Not a session beer, for me at least, in drinkability, more of a farily slow drinker, but not down to only a sipper either.
