2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
100ml from tap, with Sigridur 18.08.13, Oslo. Hazy light yellow body. Banana, apricot, green tea and wheat. A bit too sweet is our verdict, even though we both love Bergen, were reminiscing our years studying there and all the money we supported Hansa with.

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2013 Hazy golden yellow, small white head. Fruity nose, wheat, hint of yeast. Banana taste, pineapple and peach. Light body, lack of carbonation. A bit disappointing, but deserves a re-rate.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A 1.5 hour lunch break in the solar physics conference, what to do what to do... What about a quick rating at the closest micro brewery? In my tiny 25 cl glass (look boss, I’m a responsible employee!) there is a cloudy orange liquid with a very small white head that soon disappears almost completely. A thin and persistent ring of foam along the walls of the glass leaves some lacing. The aroma is strong with lovely notes of sweet fruits, of course plenty of banana, spices and sweet caramel in the back. The taste is moderate to light sweet. Strong sweet fruity flavours, banana, soap and spices. Medium body, moderate carbonation. A good one! Now, back to fixing a few bugs in my code before the conference reconvenes.
[25 cl from tap @ Amundsen, Oslo]

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Amundsen. It poured a hazy pale yellow liquid with a white head. Mild smell, light hints of wheat. Very mild taste as well, fresh though. It lacks the typical wheat beer aromas, way to mild.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2012 Fra fat på Biskopen i Bergen: behagelig aroma av banan og litt krydderier. Kryddersmaken mer framtredende i smaken. Behagelig munnfylde og ettersmak uten å imponere, men allikevel bedre enn slik jeg husker den første gang jeg prøvde den for et par år siden.
