Reddish gold, hazy. Aroma has citrus and berries, very fresh. Flavor adds yeast and hops, quite crisp. Feels rather smooth. Turns softer if you add the yeast, not as refreshing then. Very much recommended, as most other brews by Nøgne Ø.

Ibrew2or3 (8477) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 5, 2007
Courtesy of Quake1028. Pours straw to orange with nice white head. The aroma is grainy, mildly soapy, hay, fruity with peaches, apples and sugary too. The taste is fruity with, again, peaches and apples. Then a mild tartness grows into the finish. There’s also a graininess with mild hay and faint funk that gallops the flavor experience into the after taste. Interesting. This would be a nice hot weather beer.

Hazy gold, white creamy head. Aroma held soft lemony vanilla and spiced fruity notes throughout. Citric grassy hop flavors balance on a soft bready tone. Light to medium bodied, soft carbonation, lightly bitter finish. Well made and tasty. Thanks for sharing, argo0!

500mL bottle, courtesy of argo0. Thanks, Aaron! Pours a milky, murky whitish color; thin white head. Pleasant citrus, doughiness and yeast in the aroma; a decent hoppiness. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: pleasant citrus / mineral hoppiness with a solid yeasty and doughy core; plenty of yeast and dry citrus in the finish.

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - DEC 1, 2007
Pours a pale golden color w/ a two finger head. Good head retention reducing to a fluffy ring and a clumpy, sticky canopy that lingers. Aromas of biscuit malts and very pretty spice. Medium full nectar w/ perfect carbonation. Texture is like oil on velvet. This brew really hits the spot. Perfectly balanced malt body w/ a persistant spicey hop component that allows the flavor to show beautifully. Only mildly fruity and peacefully spiced w/ corriander singing a delightful song while the others clap in time. Lemony citrus, vanilla bean, tropicals. The finish is bittered by the peachpit factor leaving me ready for another sip. Strong flavors in balance making this one very enjoyable brew true to it’s heritage. Highly recommended.
