50cl bottle at Patricks. Batch 69. Best before 2009-03-30. It poured a slightly hazy golden colour with a small white head that settled down fast in the glass. Aroma is a tad sour, reminds me a lot of a white wine. Some hops and yeast. Flavour is more well-rounded. Oxidized, with notes of sweet malts, light caramel and brown sugar. Some fruits. A medium long aftertaste.
A big thanks to Erik and Lars at Patricks for finally giving me the opportunity to sample this beer. DrBeer (862) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 15, 2009
Orange-brown with thin white head.
Aroma of alcohol, fruit, spices, phenols, dried fruit and mushrooms.
A flavour of dried fruit, malt and phenols.
Fresh with some bitterness. Kalli (502) - Falun, SWEDEN - AUG 4, 2008

Aroma gives flashback to a medicine mixture from childhood. Not good. Overly sweet mouthfeel with caramel and a touch of hops. Three letters: B A D.
Also, I’m quite surprised to find two very negative Nøgne Ø reviews in this stack of old ratings. I’ve had such good beers from them on other occasions. Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - MAR 22, 2008
Bottle. Clear amber colour with a weak head. Aroma of soap, spices and some yeast. Flavour of alcohol, yeast, and caramel.

50 cL bottle, thanks to Storm. Aroma is light malty to light spiced aroma. Flavour is dry spiced with a light sweet malt flavour. Goes into a lingering spice finish. Nice brew, yet simple. tarjei (1954) - Bryne, NORWAY - NOV 5, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2007 50 cl bottle. Batch# 51, BB 30.03.09. Hazy golden/brown color, small white head. Very sweet. Yeast, fruit, alcohol. Far from the best from NØ. (RBNAG’07 in Grimstad Nov. 3th.) motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - OCT 21, 2007
bottled, rbesg06. somewhat murky orange, off-white head. wheaty aroma, hints of wildflowers, dull texture, some sharp citric flavours mingling uneasily with faintly nutty malt. a bit messy, maybe it was past its best Maria (10212) - Thisted, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2007
Golden with a big-bubbly head. The aroma is fruity and malty. The flavour is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, light fruit and a very light bitterness and alcohol. It’s too sweet and not balanced and far from the usual good quality, that Nøgne Ø normally is. Thank you Yngwie. 2308

Bottle. Tiny beige head quikliy fading into i ring of bubbles sticking to the glass. Soft, almost flat carbonation. Muddy dark orange body. Lots og sediments left on the bottom of the bottle. Prominent yeast aroma. Also a pleasant fruitiness (sweet citrus and dried dark fruits), caramel and spice. Sweet taste: Milk-caramel, candysugar, mild bittering hops, sweetish fruits and a good amount of yeast. A slight alcohol heath in the mouth all the way towards the finish. A fair Tripel from Nøgne Ø, but too soft carbonation and a bit out of balance. (Thanks to Beer_2000)
