3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
17th May 2009
Cloudy yellow brown beer. Light dry palate. Mellow malt - tastes a little aged. Mild floral sweetness and then sweet fruit coming through at the finish along with some aniseed. Overdry and a slightly odd but a nice experiment.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Interessanter weich süßlicher Antrunk mit leichten herben Andeutungen. Angenehm mild gewürzig, die Kamille ist nicht sehr deutlich. Im Abgang etwas bitterer, auf mildem Niveau passend. Hintergründig kurz hell-malzig, kein kräftiges aber sehr erfrischendes Bier, das im Abgang zudem noch etwas würziger auf hellem Niveau wird. 9/8/9/9/8/8

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 75cl corked. Looking quite nice in the glass, with a clear golden body, topped by a nice white head of moderate size. Fruity, herbal nose on the hoppy side, with a touch of cellar. The malts are left in the background. In the mouth though, it’s more evident, leaving a grainy print, with herbal bitterness, some sweetness and a touch of cellar to fill out the blanks. Medium, quite dry mouthfeel. Easy to drink. Wonderful wrapping with a contents not matching it. Still, a nice beer. (090116)

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
75 cl bottle, at tasting with yngwie, gunnfryd and Beer2000. Batch # 260, BB 01.03.09. Clear golden to light amber color, fine white head. Aroma is spicy and very Belgian. Flavor typical saison, with fine spices. Very drinkable, and of course a shame that the old Ølfabrikken is history.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy, honey wine-like orange beer has practically no head. Aromas: herbs, strongy sweet apple, berries. In the beginning flavor is very much like belgian ales and changes soon to some toffee and fruit-like with camomile. Maybe calvados-like also. Apricot in the end. Alcohol can be felt but comlex flavors conceal it totally from flavor. Very much herbs in aftertaste. Palate is much but softly carbonated and quite light-bodied. Very refreshing.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle courtesy of Thewolf: Poured a dirty beige color ale with a large pure white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of spices and fruity ester is quite interesting with some light funky notes. Taste is also dominated by some light spices with some great fruity esters with a great malt backbone which may includes wheat. Full body with limited filtration and great carbonation with no apparent alcohol. Overall, I thought it was a refreshing example of the style with some good complexity to offer as well.
