3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium offwhite head. Hazy deep yellow body. Resiny fruity bergamot aroma with earthy orangey notes. Dryish orangey bergamot taste with tropical fruit and wood notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dry and slightly astringent resiny orangey aftertaste with banana and wood notes. Really nice. Drinkable, harmonic, and full of flavour. (0.2l draft at brewpub.)

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub, thanks to Eirik for buying me a glass. Unclear apricot coloured body under a tiny layer, fragile lacing down the glass. Smell of grapefruits. Mainly grapefruits to the taste buds, hints of wheat and orange as well. Pale malty sweetness beneath. Mid-dry, fruit bitterness to the ending. Medium bodied. Refreshing, maybe a little unvaried (Oslo 21.06.2014).

On tap at Schouskjelleren. Close to clear amber with an off-white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, mild citrus and pale malt with hints of spices, caramel and yeast. Medium sweet with a fairly dry and bitter finish. Quite decent, but not a favourite.
