3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Bishops ARms in Örebro. Fruity and yeasty smell, feels belgo. A note of smoke. Sweet taste with quite a high residual sweetness, also caramel. Hard to put a type on this beer, doesn’t feel like an IPA, more like a dark belgian. Not quite a bruin either.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap sample @ Haand Festival 2013. Light copper-hued body, small white head. Nose is nutty malts, red berries and hints of oranges and grass. Taste is sweet nuts, caramel, almonds, grains, grass, hints of peaches and resin. Low on bitter/sweetness integration; the two feels as if standing side by side rather than being integrated features of the beer. Also, it does taste a bit...strange, in search of a better term. Full body, medium carbonation. OK, but far from the best Närke can do.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 25.05.2013, tap @ HaandFestival:
Tiny shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly neutral and fruity, dried fruits, almondcake, wet grain, grass, some hops. Taste is sweet, sugar, wet leafs, grass, bark, almond essence, hay. Longlasting bitterness, a little dry mouthfeel. Wouldn’t really call this a IPA.
