Kingi (489) - - APR 20, 2012
orange-red colour and a light bitter taste. Easy to drink, but still enough taste to keep it interesting.

Archibaldo de la Cruz (1122) - FINLAND - APR 13, 2012

haakonjo (22) - NORWAY - APR 12, 2012
Bottle. Golden Amber, tall offwhite head. Armona is Belgian yeast, som bread, malt and some fruit. More of the same in the flavour. Subtle flavours, yet they have a nice presence. Like a "light" and malty triple. Easy to drink, but still flavourfull. Good beer!

Psytron (1370) - Turku, FINLAND - APR 10, 2012
Bitter smell of hops. Massive beige head. Cloudy amber colour, looks like sewer water. Surprisingly sweet, aromas of mead, honey and yeast. Some hay and earthy aromas as well. Faint bitterness in aftertaste. Somewhat watery.

Thom_Rafter (11) - FINLAND - APR 6, 2012
Bottle 500ml. Jumps right out of the bottle. After some cleaning pours opaque amber-brown with large foamy head. Aroma: yeast, sweet notes. Flavor yeasty sweet notes with some fruits and herbs. Too much carbonation for my taste.

FatPhil (9509) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 5, 2012
500ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
7 Initially on pouring the aroma was almost like an English ale with its hoppiness. It was only when in the glass that the yeasty malts kicked in, and planted this firmly in the Belgian camp.
4 Rich orange. Fairly persistent tight off-white head.
7 Nice earthy bitterness, some spicy nettley retronasals. Good rustic bready grainy body. Very nice attenuation, properly dry, very little sweetness at all. At first, I could taste the alcohol, but that fades once you’ve had a mouthful of all of the other components.
4 Lovely crisp refreshing palate, that attenuation is a big win. Lively carbonation - you’ll be burping this if you drink it at the rate that the refreshingness tells you you could/should. Ignore that 6.5% on the side - this is a damn tasty quaffer. Finish, whilst harking back to the Belgian yeast, has enough earthy hops that it again reminds me of a good English strong bitter’s finish. Nice tingle that would be shamefully rare in UK beers nowadays, but Nogne know what hops are for, and they’re showing that here.
14 Can’t fault this - it’s very solid in every aspect. Not wowing me, but certainly it’s not done anything wrong. Love the attenuation, yes that’s the third time I mentioned it, and the dry bitter finish.

gunnar (5607) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 1, 2012
Bottle from Vinmonopolet. Pours hazy amber with a big creamy off-white head. Aroma is yeasty, belgian style, with spices and herbs. Taste is malt oriented, with caramel and spicy malts, some pepper. High carbonated and filling mouthfeel. .

tmrmwel (1033) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 1, 2012
Bottle. Pours golden, with an airy head. Aroma is on the sweet side, with caramel malts, and notes of orange and honey. Also some noticeable coffee. The flavour initially does not have the same sweetness, with burned malts, yeast and zesty hops, but in the background notes of toffee are lingering. It also finishes of with a nice sweet malt, with notes of oranges.

Batch #616, brygget 04.05.2011 - Pours dark orange with a large foamy head. Strong fruity and yeasty aroma with earthy notes, spices and malts. Taste is quite malty, slightly sweet and fruity.
