_angst_ (3235) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2014
Bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours hazy orange with a big frothy white head that slowly dissipates while leaving some soapy lacing on the glass. Smell is yeasty and fruity with crackers, peaches, dry soil, hay, white pepper corns, grapefruit juice, pineapple, lemon zest, dried pine needles, papaya and passionfruit. Taste is bitter, fruity and phenolic with crackers, dry soil, hay, grapefruit juice, pineapple, mango, white pepper corns and hints of leather. Mouthfeel is crisp, dry and light bodied. Finish is bitter with crackers, grapefruit rinds, hay, white pepper corns, dry soil, leather and unripe tropical fruits. Very pleasant surprise of a beer.

Lilja (1894) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 1, 2014
Tack Daniel. 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.

Cunningham (5150) - Halden, NORWAY - MAR 1, 2014
Hazy golden color with a fine white head. Citric, herbal and some yeast in the aroma. Medium + body. Moderate sweet and a fine bitterness. Average carbonation. Lovely fresh citric, yeast, mild malty and herbal flavor. Lovely ale!
[Bottle at Grand Tasting RBNG14 – Halden]

beer_est_deus (803) - örebro, SWEDEN - FEB 28, 2014
Klar gul öl med ett gigantiskt, nästintill vitt skum. Doft: Belgiskt, örter, jäst och växter, parfym. Smak: Belgiskt, örter och kryddor, humle, växter, någon typ av frukt. Fresh doft och smak. Faller verkligen mig i smaken.

visionthing (3195) - 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 (4804) - 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 (8822) - 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).

Sampled at the RBNG-14 Grand Tasting courtesy of kaaz. Misty golden body with a white head. Light spicy malts on the nose. Beer grows slightly in the mouth. Light spicy sweet with a mellow bitterness.
