Bottle at home. Pours a golden color with a small off-white head. Perfume-like aroma of flowers, citrus, mild grapefruit, wet hay, mint, NZ-hops and grass. The herbs are more pronounced in the flavor along with pale malt, cloves, dry hay and apricot. A slight chili touch in the end. Has a slick mouth feel, medium body and a light bitterness. Not quite a wit but a spicy and fruity golden ale. Rune (13383) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 30, 2015
330ml bottle, batch 0055, bb. 17.06.2017, at Ohma Restaurant in Bodø where it was nicely served in a tulip glass. Initial rocky white head reduced to a stable layer. Hazy orange coloured body. Dotted spots on the glass. Aromatic hints of coriander, wheat and citrus. Blossom mid-sweet citrus flavours combined with wheat and spices, a bit soapy and perfumed towards the ending. Foamy in the mouth. Lots of taste in this one, unfortunately not my kind of favourite beer style. The beer should be a fine partner to sushi and the Asian cooking (17.07.2015).
