3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Thanks to alexsdad06 for sharing. Mostly clear brown color. Thin off-white kind of bubbly head, couple dots of lace. Orange zesty wit-like aroma. Bigger body. Light carbonation. Toasty malt aroma, some light chocolate. Light licorice. Hint of orange in the flavor. Sweet, kind of spicy (herbal) taste. 10% alcohol a little noticeable, but not at all bothersome. Lightly smokey. Very unique, creative style-bender. Tasty, too.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2013 Bottle at home watching Norwegian brassband championships.
Really something different! Smells like a typical wit. Apperance is brown caramel. The taste is wit upfront with some sweetness and aftertaste of earthy aromas. Dry, alcohol finish. Very Little foam, but great overall carbonation. This beer tastes so unique, and deserves a much higher rating.

50cl bottle from vinmonopolet kolsås. Batch 868. Pours clear orange with a two finger very creamy head that stays for a long time. Weak aroma of orange, caramel and coriander.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark brown colour with an of-white head. Aroma timian, koriander, ywast and some light touches of caramel. Flavour is korander, caramel, nuts, dough and some light citric notes in the aftertaste. A bit different, but I liked it a lot! But some downsides; The palate is a bit too thin and it could have some better balance. The alcohol stich last a long time, which is really nice. Overall, a very good beer, but needs some improvement to get all the way to the top.

Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Dark dark amber, thick creamy head. Smells of coriander and lemon peal, wheat and malts, some roast and toast. Heavy sweet, a bit boozy, quite fruity, alot of wheat and malts. Moderate bitter finish, some zests and grass. A very nice beer; glad NØ decided to do a new batch. A fusion of belgian and german i think. Quite distinct toasty flavors on the bitter tail.
