2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Murky golden brown with a bubbly head that disappears relatively quickly as there isn’t much carbonation to refuel it. Floral aroma that is very high in wheat characteristics, with some banana/bugglegum notes, and detectable alcohol. There’s some acidity and astringent sourness, which leaves me tthinking it may be a dodgy bottle. Some bitterness at the end, but all of it isn’t balanced at all. Surprisingly thin and metallic palate, with sharp sensations that gives the beer a scattered appearance.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled, sampled at Delirium Café, Göteborg.
Pale golden. Sour pale/wheat malt dominates aroma, then there is fruit and spices, almost menthol. Flavour is rich fruity, pale malty and has notes of anise. This is a very pleasant and tasty brew. Light bodied.

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2006 Cloudy golden colour with a medium white head. Yeasty aroma with a bit of vinegar. Plenty of background sweetness and sour fruit in the taste, but a welcome dryness as well. Just a bit too much carbonation, but I enjoyed this.

(Bottle 33 cl) He’s back!!! The cute, little,fat, beer-drinking monk on the St. Idesbald labels. Golden, rather light in body, sweetish, pleasant and very easy to drink. The kind of beer that wouldn’t offend even the typical pils-drinker. Only here you get something a lot more interesting. 070996

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottled) Hay orange-yellow color with a medium, tight and lacy head. Mild, yeasty and perfumy aroma. Fruity (oranges), acidic flavor with a mildly bitter finish and somewhat noticeable alcohol. Medium-bodied with a bit hard carbonation. Still quite balanced. A refreshing, basic blonde with no serious flaws.
