TAR (2550) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 6, 2009
Rusty gold. Alluringly creamy and persistent white foam. Rustic yet brightly fruity nose of minerals, dusty yeast, toasted hay, aniseed, dried pineapple, cotton candy, and herbal hops. Whiff of sulfur lurks in the background. Dense and fluffy carbonation. Considerably mouth-filling with a well-rouned lagerlike fullness. Snappy minerals gently lift the rich yet pristine cakey malt base while lending vivid definition and crispness. Residual sweetness teases the palate as it deposits shades of cotton candy and cake to create a magical alliance with the dusty yeast. Yeast coats the palate with a pillow-soft doughy element while the malt flutters about, expressing ample flavor and a tongue-hugging powdery textures with suggestive toasted hay notions. Baked apple flabbiness remains distant enough so as to not weigh down the immaculate attenuation or overshadow the array of subtleties too much. Peppery notes shyly exude throughout, adding yet more layers of nuance. Finishes continually dusty and mineralic, with an artfully subdued punctuation of flavorsome hops which seamlessly morph into a well-polished spicy and herbal bitterness. Beers like this are among the most difficult to craft. This is an exquisite work of art, chock-full of spellbinding subtleties combined with rustic allure and character.

Bottle from Vinmonopolet Manglerud enjoyed at home
Copper, big white head. Smells of apple and melon, yeast esters, light malts and spices. Moderate sweet, quite spicy, nice fruityness, quite lots of yeast character as well. Moderate bitter, spicy finish with a touch of apple peel. Interesting biere de garde; one of the better ones i’ve tried.

RuneStumo (2508) - Haugesund, NORWAY - NOV 14, 2009
14.11.2009, 0,75l Bottle. From Vinmonopolet. Yellow colour with white head. Hazy. Aroma is Wheat, yeast and basement. There is a strange taste to this beer. But there is also a lot of nice "blonde" flavours. Ten minutes later: The strange taste isn’t that strange anymore. This beer is really getting better the more you drink. This was my rateber number 500!

Klar gul med lavt hvitt skum. Sitronskall og humlelukt. Veldig bitter start som forsvinner litt for fort.
