0.33 flaske fra vinmonopolet. Gyllen farge med mye skum. Smaker gjær,banan,tyggegummi,frukt,alkohol. God, men for lite sødme og for mye bitterhet etter min smak

33 cl bottle at Rembrandt in Tongeren. Almost no aroma, it was really hard to figure out. Tasted like metal, some bitterness and sweet corn. Average beer but i'd drink it again. Lovely glass and on the plus side, the last amounts of beer in the bottle are poured in a seperate shot glass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Foffern (1190) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAR 5, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours a slightly hazy dark straw yellow with a soap-like off-white medium head. Pretty carbonated. Aroma of pale malt, sweet corn, hay and some Belgian yeast, alcohol and spices. Almost like a strong pale lager. A bit fruity flavour along with pear and some alcohol and hay. More disappointing. Has a light and slick mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A surprisingly characterless and boring ale.
