3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. One year old. Has a hazy dark straw color with a small off-white head. The beer is quite aromatic with notes of almonds, Belgian yeast, wet hay, pale malt and dried fruit. Additionally feels some alcohol, but this is quite subdued compared to the style. The taste is also quite malty where hay, white bread, grass and a little alcohol is most prominent. Slightly dry finish. Has a smooth and soft mouthfeel, full body and light bitterness. Its aroma is malty and nice. Although I feel that the taste is somewhat one-dimensional it is solid, and I think the beer is suitable for food.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Aroma: OI - Det smeller en kraftig lukt av Diacetyl her. Fullstendig overdøvende. Muligens litt belgisk gjær, urter og fusel.
Utseende: Svak hvit skumtopp. Blir helt borte ganske fort. Strågul og tåkete.
Smak: Diacetyl, Karamell, Sitrus.
Munnfølelse: Fin karbonering, Lav fylde.
Helhetsintrykk: Her må prosessen gjennomgåes. Det er en helt klar gjæringsfeil her. Tror nok jeg kommer til å huske denne, men ikke på en positiv måte.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, at Melkebaren. A dense, two finger white head forms on top of an unclear orange-golden body. Nice lacings, and there’s some sediments in the bottle that easily hits the glass. Not that I care... The aroma is fruity in a Belgian way, with some yeast and white sugar. Spiced and herbal notes too, and the alcohol isn’t hiding. Not that the alcohol aroma is too pushing, but it’s sure there. The flavor is a bit too sugary I think, but still quite nice. It’s fruity and lightly spiced, with a fine bitterness. It’s warming on the palate, with a bit too much carbonation. Full body. Lasting fruity finish where there’s enough bitterness to prevent it from feeling cloying. A quite nice beer if you ask me, but I’d rather crack open a Duvel. 140305
