1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
Many thanks to Rosenbergh for this can! Golden in the glass, very floral in the nose with hints of malt. The beer starts smooth, dry, but nor very floral or full at all. Quite disappointing. The mainpart is smooth, bitter-dry, a bit floral, but quite boring-neutral. The aftertaste is bitter-malty, slightly metallic. Not that great, slightly sweet.
Disappointing for that great smell! --> 4/12/5/4

1.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Unfortunately stale, gone. Must be an old can, because the life is just gone. The nose was really nice, with some good American hop tones upon smelling, even holds some foam. But it's stale and old. Suspecting unfiltered, as it's a very unclear beer -- normally fine by me -- but also maybe the reason it turned in that cool can faster than I could get to it. Disappointed, but should try a fresh sample sometime.
Looked again at the can ... is over a year past expiration date.

Thanks erzengel! Pours a hazy apricot with a large committed head. The smell is big fruity hops, stale malt lingers underneath the hops though. The taste is tangy stale overall with the fruity hops mixing in....unfortunate really. Light+ body with decent carbonation.

Can, 20/04/14. Pours orange with a good-sized, off-white head. Aroma is slightly weizen-yeasty, peach and orange. Tate is dry, somewhat bitter. Citrus - lemon and its peel. A bit lightly all. Somewhat grainy body. Light but the strong carbonation masks it well. Alright.

500ml can kindly shared by djoeye. Clear dark golden body. Dense, white head slowly diminishing. Faint lacing. Fresh fruity hops on the nose, semi-dry. Mild hoppy taste of grapefruit and orange. Smooth resin-like bitter tail. Clean and soft on the swallow. Well made. Refreshing and moreish (Tromsø 18.03.2014).

Canned. Hazy brass, fluffy head. Fruity nose. Peaches, grassy bitterness. Light, but the hoppiness lasts a long way. Grapefruit, herbs. Very pleasant session beer, nice to see this distributed in cnas.

Due to a social interaction I have just very limited amount of attributes listed: nice grapefruit hops, noticeable dryness. Feels like its changed on the way.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From tap. Hazy golden color. Could wish for a longer lasting head. Hop aroma are mostly citrus and some pine. Hop dominant taste, thin body. Very drinkable but yet potent for the ABV.
