Blond, hazy body. White fizzy/creamy small head. Quite weak aroma: just a bit hoppy. Lightly bitter weak flavour. Ok balance. Not bad but not at all great. Watery mouthfeel.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
75 cl swingtop bottle. Cloudy orange yellow, foamy white head slowly settles and lingers. Aroma is yeasty and fruity. Spritzy and bitter, odd earthy yeasty taste, semi sweet fruitiness, mild malts and spice. Lively carbonation, light-medium bodied, low hopped. This brew is kinda funked up, I’m not digging the barnyard thing. Slightly acidic and vionous towards the finish. Pass. NFL (Not For Lagerboys)

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. The colour is golden straw and has a medium, off-white head. Aroma of citrus, hay, Belgian yeast and some spices. The flavour is slightly sour with a touch of citrus and pleasant spices. Has a slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A fresh and well-balanced ale. Nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy, medium golden body with a small, frothy, white head that is quite short-lived and leaves a decent amount of lacing on my plastic cup(!). I find rating aroma outdoors extremely difficult, but it would be impolite to go indoors and leave my BBQ guests in the garden, so I remain seated and try to catch some scents from the before mentioned plastic cup, while the wind blows and the fumes from the grill try to trick my nose. The aroma is moderate to light (but then again, the lack of intensity might be due to outdoor rating), with pale malts, fruits and yeast. Moderate to light sweet taste with some acidity and a moderate bitter finish. The flavours are far more complex than the aroma, confirming that I shouldn’t be allowed to judge the aroma outdoors: Fruits (with faint banana), spices, yeast, perfume, herbs, resin, honey and some alcohol in the form of white wine notes. The finish is quite alcoholic, but it still feels fairly well integrated. Medium body, dry to oily texture, soft carbonation. A good one!
[75 cl bottle, shared with Rikke, Tor, Gunnvor, Anders and the Missus, enjoyed after the palate has taken some serious beating by several drinks and various BBQ dishes]
