3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cheers to Erik (bergstaden) for this one.
Into a snifter at just on cool. Head lifted up; a snow-white in colour - but fell shy of raising a foam. Hazy, dull orange with minute carbonation. Very farmhouse, raw, edgy; oatmeal and grist, pumpernickel fresh baked with a depth of warm rock cakes - Saison!? Yes. Zesty with a sourish, lemon curd edge lifted by flakes of oak, damp earth, vanilla and mild alcohol is the aroma. On the palate it is strangely reminiscent of a robust Dortmunder. Grainy, cereal-like with a hint of granola. Body is medium to medium-light. Carbonation is soft. Long length of fresh milled malted grain. Subtle citric notes in there late with a Noble hop depth. Well rounded and balanced. Lovely to drink, but more Export than Farmhouse. Not bad, judgement aside!!! (75,cL, Bottle #487, BBE 09/15)

The head is ok, the body blond & cloudy. It smells malty and yeasty, bit hoppy, yeasty-aromatic. The taste is yeasty, hoppy, intensive, nice.

Draught. Light lemon with a thin head. Aroma is dusty lemon. Nice zesty taste, jumps to tobacco and herb, zingy finish, dry with a bit of bread.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Small head, golden amber body, almost clear.
Nose; malts, prune, hops, plum, grass.
Fruity malts, plums, grassy wet hops, yeast, to the tongue.
Home made feel with hints of smoke, I assume that’s was yeast.
Alright bodied to suit a dinner.
Finishes herbal dry smokey malty. Nice brew.

Bottle, thanks to Riita (Aniela), split at Colin and the Vikings tasting, Nol, Goteborg, Sweden 22/03/14.
Hazed orange amber with a moderate off white covering.
Nose is dark fruit mash, tobacco, spice, bready tones, honey.
Taste comprises dark fruit, hay, spice, candied fruit rind, lightly oxidised.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
So so, inoffensive but rather mediocre for the style.

Gylden med medium skum. Aroma av malt, sitrus og litt pepper. Smaken er frisk, med eple, kjeks, malt, sitrus og en anelse pepper/krydder. Ganske lite kullsyre, medium konsistens.
