Bottle. Nils Oscar is not my favorite brewery, to be honest. I don’t like their characteristic vegtable/yeast/way too sweet maltiness profile that i find in their beers. This one also had a touch of alcohol that reminds me of a maltl liqour beer. Big bodied though. Marsiblursi (3083) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 2, 2010
(Bottle) Pours golden with a small off-white head. Thai food notes up font in the aroma: lime, lemon grass, coconut milk and coriander alongside a bready and light toffee-ish malt foundation. Undertones of juniper, oak, vanilla ice cream, cotton candy and mint. Juicy hints of fruit salad also notable - pineapple, oranges, oxidized banana and tart, unripe mango. Sadly, a blanket of buttery, plastic and acetone-ish hints hides the subtle tones of the aroma. The flavour is light sweet, light to medium bitter and light tart sourish. Notes of juicy orange/lemon lemonade, bready/grainy malt, syrup, cotton candy light apricot, spices, grass and mild herbs. The mouthfeel is clean, a bit tad tart, light round and smooth carbonated. The finish holds green apples, grapefruit and earthy spices. Maybe a whisper of phenols. Medium bodied. pilsnerrogge (2997) - Finspång, SWEDEN - JUL 22, 2010

Pours amber with a slight haze and a small, creamy head. Sweet, somewhat yeasty aroma with notes of citrus. Flavour is sweet and fruity with loads of zesty grapefruit; a little bit too much zesty grapefruit.
Hazy Coppery body, white head. Aroma has mild fruits and citrus with some light toast. Flavour adds a little piney character. Some body and nice texture, but there’s no yeasty Belgian blonde feeling in this. TheJestersBeer (2431) - SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2011
750ml bottle @ home. Medium gold, maybe a bit dull. White head, dies rather quickly. Quite spicy nose, yeasty, hops, wheat. Medium bodied, dry, quite malty/wheaty, with aromatic yeasty and hoppy notes. Medium long finish. I expected more complexity, and more expressive Sorachi hop notes. Not bad, though.

Bottle. Dark golden colour with a white head. Sweet, fruity, lightly phenolic and lightly spicy. Smooth & easy drinking stuff. Almost a bit too clean for a belgian ale, but rather tasty anyhow. Joakgust (1487) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 26, 2010
Bottle, 75cl - Clear orange beer with a large white head. Aroma is fruity with notes of caramel, ripe fruit, spices and oranges. Flavor is fruity with notes of pineapple, oats and winter oranges. Some hints of orange "whites". Not too bad. Nightfall (1307) - Hamburg, GERMANY - JAN 2, 2012
Bottle @ Danish Summer Gathering, Ulfborg 2011. Golden/Orange with a thin white head. Fruity malty aroma and flavour, hops aer not that intense, but the bottle isn’t very frash either. A decent belgian ale.
