3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
It pours greenish yellow with a slight haziness. The aroma has notes of: pears, rice-pudding, and earthy mushrooms. The taste is medium sweet that finishes medium bitter and tart; there are notes of: green bell peppers, peppercorns, alcohol, shitake, and a light pear. The palate is medium-full bodied, slick, with a long finish. Overall, I was flabbergasted when I realized this was a Nøgne Ø product - yet I’m impressed with their work.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle at home. Pours like a light white sevre & maine wine. Wine aroma full of subtle fruit touches: lychee, pineapple, peach and mango. Light body, saled, dry finish. Again white wine touches in the taste
This is actually very nice, but wondering why it is categorised under beer... it is closer to wine

Hvitvinsfarget. lukter av grønne epler, gjær og syrlig. Smaken er ganske så fruktig. vinøs og tørr avslutning.
