Palme (4824) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 16, 2012
Sampled from 0.5l bottle @ Beer Enthusiast release party. This one pours a deep hazy roasted-butter colored beer with a bubbly light caramel-colored head. It has a really present odor! Really grassy, lots of diacetyl-ish butterscotch and it’s fruity with ripe strawberries. It’s quite sweet and perhaps a bit off on the aroma. It tastes medium-hoppy with pine cones, cortex and some ripe summer berries. Leaving my mouth light dry with a fruity hoppy aftertaste. Not bad, but still not quite there. 23.04.2012 gunnar (9697) - Sandnes, NORWAY - MAY 13, 2012

Bottle sample at Beer Enthusiast release tasting, Bergen. Has a dark amber colour, slightly cloudy, and has a light beige head. Smells of sweet fruit, peaches, sweet candy, a little hops and spices, and with a good malt character. In addition, I sence diacetyl/butter tones, but this does not detract the beer, and is not present in the flavor. The fruity flavour is marked by dried fruit, leather, and spices. Have a nice medium bitterness, and the mouth feel is slick and sliky. A decent APA. ClubGonzo (5685) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 27, 2012
Bottle sample @ Beer Enthusiast Release Tasting, Bergen. Slightly dark amber, small off-white head. Nose is grassy hops, melon and hints of diacetyl-ish butter and alcohol. Meh. Taste is grass and hints of melon on a caramel backdrop. Some more diacetyl and resin in the aftertaste, which kinda spoils a bit of the fun. Mediocre. jtclockwork (17284) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Bottle. Pours dark muddy brown with off white head. Nose/taste of earthy grains, grapefruit, sweet and caramel malt, sugar cubes and resinous pine. Medium body.

Pours a deep, hazy amber colour with a thick head. Aroma of sweet toasted malts, nuts and some hay. Flavour of sweet toasted malts, citrus, yeast, sweet berries, grassy hops and manure. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a malty finish with berries. Weird.

Pours dark orange with a minimal white head. Aroma has notes of fruits and berries. Taste is quite fruity hops with notes of malts and berries. Finish is slightly sweet and sticky. Okay, quite fruity APA.
50 cl from DeMolen beerstore.
Ambrée, col épais beige.
Arôme de houblon, fruité/amer, levure, malt pale et grains avec en retrait une fine note de réglisse avec un beau bouquet de citron et agrumes.
Bière où encore une fois, la levure reste un peu trop présente, notes de malt, houblon et citron pour l’amertume et une touche de fruits. Le tout offre un fini qui est trop épais. POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - AUG 22, 2011
Hazy copper color with a good creamy off white head. Aroma of caramel and citrus.Flavor is good hoppy.
Much carbon dioxide. Good fresh spring hoppy beer.
