COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The radiant energy of the sun gives life to all that we enjoy. Flowing field of barley for malting, surging vines of ripening hops and even pure, clean water owe their vitality to the sun. Just as we do. So in crafting this unique, hazy orange-hued ale, we poured in nature’s great gifts of German malts and European hops to feed the dynamic yeast that we imported from Belgium. Here in the quiet tanks of Victory our yeast brought vitality to this Belgian style farmhouse ale. That energy has created impressions that range from lemon peel to black pepper, though such spices are not added. Great with a wide array of foods, count on the bright soul of Helios Ale to bring life to all of your meals!

Farm funk cider. After several sniffs and sips, I get it. Super funky nose. Just a hint of malts and hops. The palate is a bit effervescent for my liking, but works fine for the beer. Flavor is funk, a bit of spice, big hop bitter. There is a lingering bitterness, that's slightly off fir me, but that's maybe just personal preference. There other 3 beer drinkers at the table gave it a thumbs down, so I got to drink the rest of the big bottle. Yay me! I enjoy this one for the obvious effort, and something different. Thanks Victory! -Fish!

yngwie (16227) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 9, 2016
Bottle, 22oz. A hazy golden ale with a dense two finger off-white head leaving lacing. Fruity aroma, citrus and orange peel, some banana and peaches, and a hint of peppery, chalky yeast. It’s lightly warming on the palate, full bodied and lightly effervescent, semi dry. Citrus, orange zest, banana hints, pepper hints and bitterness. Lasting fruity finish with some chalky yeast hints. Quite nice, but a tad yeasty. 160409

Palme (3637) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 10, 2016
0.65l bottle. This is a cloudy orange golden looking one, tons of small unfiltered particles floating about and with a nice big lasting and lacing head white head that sticks around. Like the fruity funky cheesy nose, quite original and different. Blood oranges, fermented pear juice and it has a woody sour undertone with yeast. Nice. It doesn’t really taste all that amazing. Really old mushy cellar and earthy dust. Feels kinda flat, not on the carbonation but in the taste. A good amount of yeast here and it has a nice oily texture in the mouth. More bitter oranges, a little bit of wet moss and it’s light peppery and spiced towards the finish. Half the bottle down it grows on you a bit, but this is not mine kind of saison. 10.03.2016

Flaske 650ml fra Vinmonopolet Larvik. Drukket i Tyrihansveien. Gylden. Litt uklar. Høyt kremaktig skum som daler veldig sakte. Spotlacing. Aroma av malt og krydder. Smaken fint balansert. Beholder krydderpreget. Nesten som pepper. Blir tørr etter hvert. Litt bunnfall igjen på flaska.
