3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Nærbø Ølfestival. It pours a lightly unclear, brown to dark amber body. Beige head. Pine cones, citrus peel, peaches and some sugar-ish maltyness on the palate. Peaches, orange, some sugary hints and a fine bitterness in the flavor. Medium body, quite dry. Bitter and peachy finish. An easy drinkable and tasteful beer, but I’m not too fond of the hop mix in this one. Won’t mind drinking more of it thoug. 111022

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap@Håndtverker’n. Very dark, clear reddish brown, with a small frothy off white head. Solid sweet fruity aroma, tropical fruits, juicy apricots, slightly burnt sour, slightly smoked, a hint of caramel or burnt sugar. Loads of fruitiness flavourwise as well, with a nice, long resiny finish. Toasted malts. Almost astringent and peppery in the long, long finish. Medium bodied, sparsely carbed. Could have been a bit bubblier. All in all a good, drinkable yet complex beer. Nice one.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Surprisingly dark brown, cloudy. Small beige head. Aromas of grainy hops, rye, and a nice whiff of grapefruit. The ryebread also in the flavours, along with some sweet caramel notes. Medium to fullbodied with a well balanced long durational bitterness. Slick in the mouth and low carbo. Overall a very tastefull and balanced delicious brew. Despite having american hops the fruity flavours reminds me more of an english style IPA.
