Palme (3450) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2014
0.33l clear bottle with one of those complicated pull-off caps. It has some serious aroma this! Oh my. This smells horrible. It fill the room the second after popping the cap. It has lots of eyefloaters when holding it up against the light. The color of the beast is golden, it’s as good as clear and the little head goes quickly in to a sidesticking filmy thing. It just stinks of diacetyl, diabetes and some really cheap public toilet soap that has been disintegrated in grainy wort. Lots of Corona aromas here also, and it smells like drunken guy on a train. Oh my.. Tastes just like it smells. No, worse. Not pleasant at all what so ever. I can’t drink another drop of this. Down the drain never to bee seen again. Truly one of the worst I’ve ever had. 08.03.2014

Hell bernsteinfarbenes Getränk mit wenig Schaum. Geruch sehr süß, künstliche Aromen, Beeren, Zucker, so ist auch der Geschmack.

OleR (4802) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 18, 2014
A finger of white foam, over a shiny red-shaded, amber colored body. Smell of raspberry bon-bon. Thin. A harsh, sickeningly taste is overpowering the berry juice added. No bitterness. Hint om vomit. Some acidity in a short watery finish. Coudn’t finish the sample. Really poor stuff. [Purchased at Meny Oslo City]

mile (3033) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 18, 2014
Bottle. Light golden, hazy, small and mostly diminishing head. Light to moderate sweet and syrupy aroma, artificial like berry fruitiness. Light to medium and sugary sweet flavor, some artificial like berry fruitiness. Finish is short to average and sugary sweet, artificial like berry fruitiness. Beer?

Vighals (1222) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - APR 13, 2014
Orange klar i fargen med minimalt hvitt skum. Lukter stikkelsbærgelepulver. Heldigvis ikke så søt som fryktet, men en behagelig lett fruktighet. Også noe bitterhet. Medium kullsyre. Ufrivillig høy score på denne, men var god i påskefjellet og humøret er på topp etter dagens kamp!

ClubGonzo (4115) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2014
Bottle from Matkroken Natland, Bergen. Pours a clear light amber body with a miniscule white head. Aroma is strange fruity tones of what I guess must be cranberries and violets, pale malts and dusty grass tones in the back. Seems very...strange. Taste is...well, pretty horrible, actually. The floral perfumy notes really smack you in the face with a sickening sweetness, backed by the cranberry tones which come across as syrupy chewing gum/pastille kinda way. Light body, fizzy carbonation. Holy craparoni, this must be just about the worst nightmare of a mis-flavored beer I’ve encountered in quite some time. It really makes me sick, and even the few sips needed for this rating leaves me truly revolted. Horror, thy name is Violette! :-(

kraddel (3466) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - MAR 11, 2014
Bottle Pours yellow , clear , smaller white foam . Smell is overwhelmingly chemical . Desperados comes to mind . Sweet, violets . Taste is sweet, chemical , sugary , violets ( the only nice part in this beer I guess ) Too much carbo . Aftertaste is violets , which is - like before - nice, but very chemical .

rosenbergh (7034) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 22, 2014
330 ml bottle. L13112. BB 22/10/14. From saveur-biere.com.
Slightly cloudy pale red golden colour with a tiny white head. Some floral and berry essence and sweetness in the aroma. The flavour is... Frankly quite horrible... It almost makes me feel sick. Yuck! I can’t drink this.

On bottle from Meny Oslo City. Golden with hint of violet color, good foam. Very floral aromas, also fruity medium/light intensity- also artificial soda flavours. Medium/light body & complexity. Some sweetness, ok balance. OK enough- but 1 is enough( for a lifetime)
