visionthing (2578) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 27, 2014
From a shared 75cl bottle at RBNG-14. Pours clear golden with a white head. Fruity aroma with notes of Belgian yeast, herbs, some floral aroma and hints of citrus. Medium sweet with pleasant hoppy flavours and a nice bitterness. Well balanced and very nice! (2014-02-15 - Grand Tasting, Fredriksten festning, Halden)

OleR (4762) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2014
Firm white top. Body is hazy deep gold. Grassy hop aroma. Faint floral and dry pale malts. Mid-bodied, slick texture. Dry pale malt flavor, clean grassy bitterness throughout. Balanced with good drinking qualities. [Shared bottle at GrandTasting, RBNG2014]

Rune (7760) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2014
Sampled from a 750ml bottle. Tiny white head, fair lacing. Misty, pale golden body. Herbal hops and earthy malts on the nose. Flavour of citrus shells supported by honey and ripe banana. Malt-fruity endnotes. Nice, a bit too sweet for a higher score (RBNG-event, Fredriksten festning, Fredrik 3.s Hall, Halden 15.02.2014).

Vignale (1978) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 23, 2014
Flaska från SB. En bra blond rejäl men inte alls tung belgisk ale med jäst och pommeranssmak, relativt torr och med mustiga jordiga humlesmaker med drag av gräs, örter, kryddor och peppar. Humlefräschören är nog tyvärr borta vid det här laget, men den jordiga kryddigheten funkar för mig.

yngwie (13106) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 18, 2014
Bottle, 75cl, at RBNG-14 Grand Tasting. A lightly unclear one, golden in color and with a dense, finger-thick off-white head. The aroma has a nice yeasty touch, white sugar and pine cones. Grass, peppery hints and some pleasant maltyness. A really nice bitterness in the flavor, with pine cones, resins and pine cones. Some peppery notes too. Full body, dry and with a nice carbonation. Lasting bitter and piney finish. Sure a nice one, quenching and tasteful. 140215
