Flaske hos Ole Anders mai-13: den første med mye humlearoma (men besk) i kveld, og smaken gir ganen en skikkelig overhaling. Best før 23.5.13, så vi rakk det såvidt.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours cloudy orange with about two fingers of thick white head. Aroma is distinctly fruity (mango, apricot) yet has plenty of caramel malt and toffee as well. Very sweet, with just a subtle hint of citrus. Taste is less sweet, there is some initially, when you can pick out the caramel malt, but also a light bitterness that grows over time. Finish is purely bitter and hoppy. Body is fairly light and oily with low carbonation. I quite liked it.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a hazy deep orange body with a medium creamy off-white head. Nose is grassy noble hops, pale malts, hints of melon and caramel. A bit faint. Taste is smooth grass and resinous hop tones and hints of herbs. Very neutral, but somehow still flavorful. Full body, soft carbonation. A strange beer, and I guess in many ways suited for its thematic profile.
