Pours a cloudy orange with a short lived white head. Heavy citrus aroma with hints of grapefruit. Medicinal bitterness with a grassy, herbal aftertaste. Not very awesome.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. An unclear golden beer with a huge yellowish head. The aroma has notes of lemons and hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of citrusy hops, malt, and brewing cereal, leading to a very bitter and raw finish.

Quite a lovely beer. Very fruity and malty throughout with a dry smokey/watermelon finish... Interesting. Also lovely bottle & label! Finish can be quite overwhelming.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Low fluffy white and quickly disappearing head. Hazy yellow green body. Pine lemon and grapefruity aroma and flavor with a nice and relatively strong hops bitterness. Low carbonation. Long dry and bitter finish. Alcohol well hidden by the bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a huge white head that retains well and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit rind and grains. Taste is a grapefruit bitterness with a grainy malty sweetness. This brew is much like having a fresh white grapefruit for breakfast. A little one dimensional, but still a very well crafted beer.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a hazy straw-hued orange body with a large creamy white head. Aroma is grapefruit, rose water, peaches, citric peel and hints of syrup and pineapple. A bit perfumy, all in all, but still quite nice. Taste is a different story - harsh bitter tones of resin, medicine and pine quench most of the fruitiness, with only a bit of earthy leaves, cellar must and hints of rose water and peaches in the back. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Whatever difference the corn/rice setup may or may not have made, it totally drowns in a disproportionate hop schedule which pretty much ruins the ball.
