Palme (2988) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 22, 2013
0.33l bottle (this bottle says 6.5%). This is a clear deep caramel-brown colored beer with a big good looking slightly fluffy off-white head. It smells a bit different this. Hard to describe, but I get references to pine and gin. Also, it’s floral and typical Belgian. Lots of herbs. I like it. On the mouthfeel it’s slick oily and the carbonation level is about average. Spruce, wild forest, herbs and again gin in the taste. Not to much bitterness, but it feels herbal and the caramel is noticeable. Nice yeasty flavors in the finish. Is this a Easter brew? If it is, I can fully support drinking this outside in the steaking sun after a long day on the skies. 16.03.2013

SimplySike (688) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2013
33cl. Bottle. Pours clear amber with white head. Aroma strawberries, citrus, spice, herbs, flowers, caramel, fresh. Taste little caramel sweet, nice hoppy bitter. Mouthfeel creamy, lively carbo. Great spring beer!

SperkeleForce (401) - FINLAND - APR 13, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Pours mahogany, copper reddish color with smooth slight bubbly head. Notes of floral, soapy, caramel, yeast, slightly metallic and alcohol. Slightly bitter and alcohol taste in the finish. Too one sided with not much of complexity. This one needs bit longer to warm up and not to drink too cold. After that more aromas and taste started to emerge. Like notes of orange and some fruits.

Countbeer (4028) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - APR 13, 2013
Live rating from the 2,5 hour train ride tasting session 2013: Bottle: Medium sized lively harsher and creamy foamy head that changes quick an leaves a thick lacing on top of an almost clear orange colored beer. Looks good. Aromas of fruit, orange, pine, soda pop, flowers, soap, some hops and some herbs. Bit of a summer smell. Flavour is spicy, coriander, some clove, creamy, fruits like orange, apricot and peach, some harher grains, light yeasty, loght hop tones and some herbs. Aftertaste is spicy, malty, flowery and some fruity tones. Low carbo, soft cremay mouthfeel, medium body and a texture which is good creamy. Bit strangely balanced with the spices but absolutely not bad.

Bottle 330ml 6.5% @ home
Pours clear deep golden with off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, yeasty spice and fruitiness. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long fruity and yeasty spicy finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft to fizzy

visionthing (2386) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 8, 2013
33cl bottle from Vinmonopolet Storo. Slightly hazy amber with an off-white head. Fruity, malty and yeasty aroma with spices and caramel. Sweet and fruity with an almost perfumy, yeasty flavour and a very light bitterness in the finish. Fairly well balanced, but a bit strange. Medium body and well integrated alcohol. Decent, but not quite my kind of beer.

kingstoni (1333) - FINLAND - APR 7, 2013
Bottle. Hazy amber / dark copper color with a medium thick frothy head. Pungent aroma of apple, anise and yeast. Bitter and slightly sour taste. Some alcohol in finish.

Douberd (1688) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 5, 2013
330 ml bottle, at home. Poured into a tulip glass. ABV 6.5%. For a reason I have a bottle that was meant to be imported in Denmark. Maybe that’s why the lower alcohol? Very deep orange to light red colour, big head, three fingers tall, off-white in colour, soapy. Collapses fast but after that it has a very good retention. Light lacing around the glass. Nice aroma with floral hops, a tiny bit of yeast and sugars. Sweet at first, turns quickly to bitter and becomes even more bitter on the aftertaste. Lots of hops here too. Very good and refreshing. Medium thick on the body, average carbonation. Overall a very good beer, I don’t know if two days drinking only cheap pilsners played any role but I enjoyed this beer a lot. Feels like a Heller Bock too.
