3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A big inhale offers much to discern. It really is a singular aroma but not the intensity of fruity American hops. Some noble-hop characteristics, musky woody note, malt, molasses, some subtle orange, melon, fresh herbs, sweet malt and alcohol. Not overbearingly fruity.
Smooth palate with soft carbonation. Taste is a little diluted unfortunately, there’s some caramel malt and some citrus, woody adnd earthy notes. A really scratchy rasping bitterness. A remarkable sturdy head, almost like a mousse/yoghurt. Endless potential, muted though, someone needs to turn the volume up.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle (50cl) from Vinmonopolet (Vika), Oslo. Inch-thick off-white head, good retention, leaves a lot of lacing. Rich aroma of ’dark’ concentrated citrus, pine, clementine peel, caramel. Medium body, soft carbonation, refreshing mouthfeel. Well-balanced piney-fruity taste, fairly sweet, very bitter, with an interesting super-lemony twist in the finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My beer was bottled 25.11.2013 so it’s almost 10 months old. I think most of the aroma and taste already gone. I think so, cuz it has rather weak aroma, it’s still sweet and a bit fruity but it’s not what I was expected, and what I experienced with other Nogne O beers. It’s hazy, copper color, with big head and great lacing. Taste is also not very intensive. But the bitterness is very pleasant. In overall it’s the worst Nogne I’ve tasted, but still it’s very good.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
26/VII/14 - 50cl bottle from Bierhalle Deconinck (Vichte) @ Zwommie’s place - BB: 23/XI/15, brewed: 23/XI/13 (2014-845)
Little cloudy dark orange beer, creamy yellowish head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: very fruity, honey, sweet, caramel. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: sweet, honey, caramel, sweet again, citrus, hoppy, very malty. Aftertaste: bitter, some honey, caramel, malty, some citrus. Too old I guess. No idea what happened, because this had just hit the shelves about two weeks ago.

3.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle @El Lúpulo Feroz, Oviedo. 12-01-2014.
In short: plain IPA.
Pours murky dark gold. Some head retention and good lacing. Very fresh citrusy, tangerine-like aromas. Light to medium body, some crispy texture, average carbonation. Taste is very citrusy, orange, and not much else, plain beer, a bit watered-down. Pleasant anyway.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled @ Gents Bierfestival 2014. Small, spare creamy bubble head, hazy orange brownish amber. Nose is thick bitter raisin with some cookie, caramel, cereal toffee bitterness. Taste is brief toffee, allspice, caramel, cookie leading into strong pine resin bitterness, touch herbal & strong orange peel bitterness. Full touch malty body. Bit empty outside of strong pine resin & orange peel bitterness. Bit one dimensional but not bad for sure.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small, rather stable cream head over fully hazy, yeast-laden orangeish brown beer. Yeast, bread, little else... bit salty/mineral. Bitter, hoppy, citrus if not especially mandarines. Still quite some maltpresence, if certainly not sweet. Quite slick, liquid yest. Long, if mild bitter aftertaste. Not so very special. As to mandarines, Kjetil go taste the Alpine beers again...
