Nose
Bready, perfumed and laced with bitter orange zest. Smells more like a wit than a blond.
Palate
Abundant pale malt provides plenty of body, sweetness and strength, with more orange citrus notes, gentle perfume and a spicy warmth alongside and a light bitterness behind.
Finish
Dry and warming. Bitterness picks up but sweet malt lingers along with some tangy citrus. Rather thick and chewy.
Comment
Fresh and quaffable, despite its strength.

Nose
Mango. Honey. Boiled sweets. Alcoholic top notes. Oily.
Palate
Sweet maltiness melts away then builds again with a light touch of bitterness.
Finish
Light bitterness again. Nicely balanced.
Comment
An interesting Norwegian version of a south Belgian beer style. I like it. More?
