Holmen1 (2003) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 5, 2013
Fra fat på Cardinaltreff juni-13: utseende og aroma som en mislykket urinprøve avgitt med store problemer, MEN: sansene bedrar, denne er rund og lettdrikkelig. Citra og centennial gjør underverker her. Faktisk så lettdrikkelig for sine 9,3% at den kan bli en sak for urologisk poliklinikk...

Holmen2 (409) - NORWAY - JUN 3, 2013
Looks like a foamy urine test the day after a good binge. Judging from the aroma it must feline. Taste is, luckily, better. But not much. Bitter lime lemonade.

Sigmund (4815) - Tau, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2013
On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Very cloudy golden colour, low white head. Distinct aroma of fruity and piney American hops (with a hint of tomcat), sweetish notes of oranges. Very hoppy flavour - but fortunately that includes the full range of hop flavours, not only the bitterness (which is distinct, but not too extreme). Fruity and piney / resinous notes again. Not too sweet. Quite enjoyable.

thirstyrabbit (1000) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 31, 2013
Small bottle. Cool label with a digital photo of roses that fails to load in the middle. Cloudy orange body with a tall rocky head. Rich aroma of crisp hops. Slick body with lots of hops. Tastes a bit anonymous. Decent enough but no surprises - just another Danish hop bomb brewed at the De Proefbrouwerij. Decent enough but in terms of excitement it kind of does "fail to load in the middle".

haukur (1203) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - MAY 31, 2013
Hoppy aroma, with some citrus bark and maybe a bit of herbs. Cloudy yellow, long bitter slightly fruity finish. Very good!

suurjuust (844) - ESTONIA - MAY 30, 2013
Hazy orange-tinted amber, white head. Nose is very citric-hoppy, fruity notes, herbs, some malts. Taste is peaches, oranges, biscuity malts, pine resin and fairly intense hoppy bitterness in the dry finish. Smooth carbonation, thick mouthfeel.

sebletitje (6341) - Enghien, BELGIUM - MAY 29, 2013
Bouteille 33cl, bb 07/03/2015. Digging these labels. Couleur dorée tirant sur une légère opacité, col est épais, crémeux et persistant dans le blanc-cassé. Arôme est envoutant avec un bouquet sublime de fruité tropical couplé à des notes d’agrumes, particulièrement du citron vert. Pointe d’aiguilles de pin, et possible ananas. Palais est légèrement épicé et dominé par le houblon qui donne un profil épais et consistant tirant sur l’herbacé. Le tout reste généreusement bien fruité surtout dans les notes d’agrumes et surtout de pamplemousse. Ici, le citra est bien mis à profit, et malgré un palais montrant bien les 9%, la bière reste facile à boire et de ce fait traitre. Malt est dans le style pâle et reste assez en retrait par rapport à la présence des houblons. Garde néanmoins une touche très DeProef qui commence à ressortir sur bon nombre de bières sous-traitées chez ce dernier.

rarbring (1090) - Linköping, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2013
Aroma: Smelling of bread, grape-fruit, pine resin.
Appearance: A foggy amber colored beer. An off-white head with good lacing and good curtains.
Taste: Tasting sweet bread, resin and peel.
Palate: Medium high carbonation, a soft and oily texture. A big body with a slightly dry finish.
Overall: Nice but sweet.
Note: On-tap at De Klomp. Reviewed 2013-05-25.
