Barwa bardzo ładna, taka soczysta pomarańczka, zamglone. Piana niewielka pozostawiająca przyzwoity lacing. Aromaty ziłowo-rodzynkowo-winogronowe, z odrobiną grejpfruta. Półpełne, słodowe, z goryczkową kontrą. Sama goryczka jest powyżej średniej, trochę zalegająca, ziołowa i odrobinkę cytrusowa. Wysycenie średnie, a alkohol tylko trochę wyczuwalny.

Beautiful pale amber colour - slightly cloudy. Thin white head with ok lacing. Amazing citrus fruit aroma with an additional hint of honey. Tasting a dark honey initial taste with a slightly woody middle. Citrus and bitter pine dominate the end. Nice and thick palate - good carbonation and good mouth coat.

Clear amber body. Magnificent creamy white head. Lovely citric nose. Fully bodied, moderately sweet, moderately bitter flavour. Top class.

vanelst (122) - AUSTRIA - JUL 16, 2014
Aroma of malt, pineapple, oranges, grapefruits and hops. Bitter grapefruite taste and hops at the beginning, sweeter middle part and a long bitterdry finish. All in all a good beer, but the bitterness of this one is not refreshing at ale and kinda too overwhelming. Overrated for what it is.

Bottle. Aroma elderflower, overall flowery, light resiny. Clear amber colour with reddish tint. Taste has nicely balanced intense bitterness and decent sweet backbone. Citrus, orange, resiny. Tasty. Very good. Long hoppy finish.

Barwa: bursztynowa, wyraźnie zmętniona. Piana biała, drobno i średnio pęcherzykowa, początkowo obfita, dość szybko opada, ale ładnie oblepia szkło. Aromat: słodowy (herbatniki z karmelem), wyraźnie alkoholowy oraz chmielowy cytrusy (wśród których dominują mandarynki) oraz zioła. Smak: zdecydowanie pełny, słodowy, ale raczej wytrawny i alkoholowy początek. Następnie chmielowa kontra z goryczką powyżej średniej, głównie ziołowa i nieco łodygowa, zielona, trochę zalegająca. Piwo uwarzone według receptury zwycięzcy norweskiego konkursu piw domowych w 2010r. Prawdopodobnie z tego powodu producent nie podaje pełnego składu, jak zwykł to czynić w przypadku swoich piw. Barwa i aromat są nawet niezłe, ale w smaku za bardzo atakuje moim zdaniem alkohol i goryczka jest nieco męcząca. Z tego powodu piłem całą butelką dość długo.

pours dark hazy copper. Aroma is funky, notes of fruit and pine. Bitter with a Belgian yeast background. Fruity with notes of lemon a nice amount of hops and funk on the finish. Medium body light carbonation.

Flaša. Tmavo oranžová farba, krásna biela pena, dlho držala. Vôňa sladká, ovocná, jemne karamelové tóny a broskyne. Taktiež cítiť alkohol. V chuti sladkosť, kvetinové a ovocné tóny, grapefruit, trávovosť a zemitosť. Telo plné, pekná vyváženosť sladkosti a horkosti. Veľmi pitné, ale alkohol je dosť citeľnŭ.

MrHangover (2456) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle, thnx to Cunningham. Pours a deep dark amber beer with a small off white head on top. Aroma is very malty, lots of caramel ams citric notes. No real complexity in the aroma, it’s just nice. Flavor is nice and bittersweet, nice bitter grapefruit with some honey like malty influences. Nice, light bitter fruity aftertaste. Low carbo, decent mouthfeel, very nice beer.

The head on this beer lives a life on its own. Incredibly big and rising more than what one is used to. Beautiful hazy orange beer and lasting head. Not the strongest aroma but quality with grapefruit. This brewery is probably Norways best and one of the best in the world. I was expecting just a bit more of this, but it is very good. This one was bottled 2,5 months ago, maybe it would have been even sharper if I had it 1 month ago. Not too bitter, not too sweet.
