3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Grünerløkka Brygghus, Mathallen.
Lovely hoppy nose, herbal, mouthwatering. Light body, does not quite kive up to the excpectations from the aroma. A bit dull, but with a decent bitterness. Not at all bad for a new brewery.

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. Very cloudy orange colour (the cloudiness possibly due to the keg being shaken during transport), moderate white head. Lovely strong aroma of fruity hops (tropical fruits, mango / passion fruit), also some piney notes. The hops are Northern Brewer, Cascade, Citra and Chinook. Loads of aroma hops (including dry hopping) have been used, and not so much bittering hops, according to the brewer. Then it is no surprise that the beer has plenty of fruity and mild piney hop flavour, but not so much bitterness. A little more bitterness would not hurt, even if the more subtle hop flavours remain the focus here. This is still a very enjoyable brew as it is.

On tap at Grünerløkka Brygghus. Pours cloudy orangey golden with a lasting head. A very fresh grapefruity and piney hop nose. A good bitterness that is still well-balanced. Really well-made, a great addition to the Norwegian microbrew scene.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Cardinal, Stavanger. Pours hazy golden with a small white head. Amazing fruity hop aroma, like concentrated hop juice, tropical fruits with pine needles, strong and very inviting. Taste is modereate bitter, more balanced and easier drinkable than suggested by the aroma, lots of fresh fruits, smooth with that moreish taste. Looking forward to the next brews from Voss.

Sampled at Nærbø Ølfestival 2013. Slightly unclear golden body with a white head. Really nice aroma of citric and tropical hops. Flavor has a nice soft maltiness with refreshing fruity hops as found in the aroma. Decent bitterness and balanced in body. Nice and refreshing as expected from a fresh APA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Henrik, Bergen. Hazy dark orange body with a dense creamy off-white head. Nose is apricot, rosewater, hints of melon, pine and peaches. Taste is rosewater, peaches and wet grass, with hints of grapefruit and pine sprouts. Thick, near-creamy palate which deducts from the drinkability somewhat, but otherwise a very drinkable APA and a nice debut from Voss Bryggeri. Welcome on board! :-)

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Henrik. This is a heavy cloudy deep orange one with a nice lacing medium sized off-white top. Smells fantastic this! Really fresh hoppy, lots of peachy fruits and its light grassy as well. Yeah, this is how it’s supposed to smell. A wonderful mouthfeel that’s feeling almost creamy in the mouth. Lovely fresh hoppy flavors. Almost a bit like Mister Freeze ice in the taste. Candy sweet with a balancing grassy and light mouthdrying bitterness. Something I will definitely drink again, and again. Perhaps even one more time after that second one. Really enjoyable. 10.05.2013
