yngwie (12612) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2013
On tap at Nærbø Ølfestival 2013. A lightly unclear one, golden in color and topped by a decent, off-white head. Some lacings. Citrus, some peaches and in general tropical fruits in the aroma. Not much maltyness going on. The flavor has a faint sweetness and a nice bitterness, as well as the same fruityness found in the aroma. Dryins, medium body. Lasting finish with fruityness and bitterness. Tasteful, quenching and easy drinkable.131029

Rune (7348) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 24, 2014
Small glass, draught at Bar Bowling Førtito in Sarpsborg. Cloudy amber coloured body. Dissipating beige head. Aroma is fruity and honey sweet. Fresh flavours of tropical fruits and smooth honeyed sweetness followed by a twist of dried fruity bitterness towards the ending. Soft in the mouth. Fine bodied. Well made with splendid drinkability (Tour de Østfold, RBNG 15.02.2014).

KnutAlbert (5757) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 13, 2013
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.

gunnar (4865) - Sandnes, NORWAY - APR 24, 2013
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.

Sigmund (4812) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 22, 2013
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.

thebeertourist (4651) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 21, 2013
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.

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.
