neongolden (1860) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2017
(On tap @ CBC 2016 Yellow Session, Copenhagen) Pours clear pale gold with a big white head of fine bubbles that lasts well and leaves lace. Aroma is softly cheesy funk, biscuit malt nose reminiscent of scones, a bit of white wine, touches of gooseberry, pale tart berry notes, some oak as expected, a hint of buttery oaked white wine character but not too much. Palate is quite tart verging on bracingly sour, a lot of lactic citrus notes, underripe pit fruit, sour gooseberry, white wine that’s been lightly oxidized, quite smoothly and lightly oaked. A bit of drying in the finish, a touch of fruit peel, malt reminiscent of baked goods but no grain. Medium bodied, average carbonation. Pretty nice, quite balanced, nothing flashy about it.

Palme (4832) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 3, 2017
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2016. This one has a near clear almost whisky golden colored body, on top a small and sidesticking just off-white top. Quite tart and some old berries on the nose. A distinct sweetness also detected here. Cacti-caramel? Don’t know, and a little bit of alcohol. Quite nice. It’s quite refreshing in the taste, mild wood tart. It has a nice oily texture in the mouth and it’s just about average on the carbonation. Some white currants sourness and tartness. Soft dry finish and aftertaste. Nice one! 13.05.2016
