3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer pours an orange color with a medium head and nice lacing on the glass.
The aroma offers some caramel, some candied orange rind (is that a thing?), some leafy hops, & some nice spiciness.
The flavor is really pretty boozy, it’s got some citrus rind & leafy hoppiness. It’s sort of reminiscent of an American barleywine in it’s malt character and hopping level, but the hops are leafy and earthy, and it’s without a doubt a very Belgian yeast forward beer. Seems like from what I just said that it’d be a mess, but it’s enjoyable.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Vinmonopolet in Valkendorfsgate, Bergen. Pours a clear deep amber body with a large creamy off-white head, looking absolutely delicious. Nose is candi sugar, red berries, caramel, herbs and hints of toffee, alcohol and wet grass. Taste is bitter herbs, candi sugar, red berries, burnt caramel and hints of alcohol and resin. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Severely alcoholic/bitter - in a resin-meets-burnt-sugar kinda way - and low in residual sweetness for its style, but still rather enjoyable.
