Growing up in Skagen, Rav Larsen was an original, almost always seen down by the harbour, selling amber jewelry and his little paintings from his bike. With a long white beer, one would be wondering if it was Santa Claus summer job, but he was a lot more fit. He spoke French and had apparently been in the foreign legion. I wish this beer had taken some of this into account, maybe a strong Belgian quad would have been more appropriate. As it is, I think this is a bit of a let-down. The colour is very correct, as Rav (Amber) Larsen would have wanted I’m sure, but aside from that, this is far less challenging a beer for such a strong character of a man.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. It’s an unclear, golden beer with a small, dense, off-white to light beige head. The aroma is fruity with some sweetness, a faint whiff of yeast, and a tropical fruit syrup touch. The flavor has a faint bitterness as well as tropical fruits, sweetness and a little touch of yeast. Medium to full body. A quite pleasant and easy drinkable beer, but I can’t say it reminds me much of a dunkelweizen. But of course I don’t know if that’s the intention either. And of course it doesn’t matter, beer shouldn’t necessary be brewed to style. 121130

500 ml bottle. Thanks Timo A. Pours a orange amber colour with a white head. Aroma of lingonberries, bread and grass. Flavour of wheat, lingonberries, caramel, bread, cardboard and some hay. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Finishes berryish, tart and dry. Decent.
