3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle to finish off a joyful evening at Håndverkerstuene. Close to clear amber in body appearance. Huge, loose, and bubbly white head. Fine aroma of herbal hops added by a fresh citrus touch. Wheat citrus in flavour supported by spices and lemon. Candy sweet backbone offset by a dry bitter finale. Good drinkability (Oslo, 15.09.2012).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Medium offwhite head. Hazy opaque amber body. Fruity mealy orangey aroma with spicy herbal toffee notes, with traces of oil and paper. Dry-sweet toffee and resiny fruit taste with grassy herbal spicy notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dry fruity resiny peppery aftertaste with orangey mealy notes. Excellent! Full-flavoured and highly drinkable. Reminiscent of Westmalle Trippel. (0.33l bottle, Håndverkerstuene, Oslo.)
