3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, LCBO. Hazy medium yellow, small creamy white head. Clove, coriander on nose, a bit of alcohol. Taste - really nice creamy yet tingly mouthfeel that opens up a wonderful coriander citrusy taste, mixed with yeast. Finish is a bit odd though as a spice or soemthing comes in to give a metallic bite that I did not care for (alcohol here a bit too - I do not mind that). Certainly balanced and extremely drinkable with lots going on - I just did not care for that finish.
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2017 Pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma of cheese (?), orange peel and hops. Taste of bitter cheese (?) and zest. Another great beer from Nøgne ø. AleRider78 (1333) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 17, 2017
Pours a huge frothy off-white head that sticks around for awhile. Has a hazy golden appearance. Nice dirty lacing. Aromas of wheats and grains, light malts, slightly toasty. Flavours are quite strong. Has a sort of smokey like taste, burnt roasted malts. Some citrus hops, hints of pineapple and extremely light banana notes. Very bitter in the finish with mouthfeel and aftertaste. A little off putting with aftertaste. A bit of alcohol comes through, just enough and not offensive. Really good. skortila (5894) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2017
Bottled. 25cl sample. The aroma has some peat, juniper, citrus, cloves. Bit hazy, golden coloured beer with a medium, white head. The taste is light-moderate bitter, spicy, bit smoked, citric. Nice refreshing and fairly dry. DwarfeD (3540) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - APR 6, 2017

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber beer with a minimal amount of quickly disappearing white head on top. Aroma is very malty and sugary, wheaty notes, bready touches and a vague hint of banana in there, like a strong weizen. Flavor is sweet and rather boozy, strong alcoholic presence in the beer, loads of malts in there, sugary notes, white fruits and again a hint of banana. Soft and sticky moutfheel, almost no carbonation present. Still nice though, yet strong. minutemat (5659) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2017
500ml bottle from Oslo Airport duty free. Drunk at home. Pours a misty gold, white head. Aroma has some nice sweet tripel yeast notes. Taste is creamy with soft a tripel sweetness and very subtle peat notes. Quite balanced and doesn’t taste 9% in the slightest. Bit too creamy for my tastes though.

500 ml bottle from the Party Source from notes. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet malts, lightly toasted malts, ripe fruits, and a hint of spice, ok example of the style. BeerNor (1) - - DEC 3, 2016 does not count
Excellent tripple with an marzipan like aroma, delicate offwhite head which is rather short lived as you would expect with this alcohol content. Very good mouth feel. I like the alcohol on the nose, as well as the sweet after taste even though I know it might not be everybody’s cup of tea. Carbonation is probably in the lower end of the range for the style which again suits me.
