3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Henrik. Has a hazy brown colour with a medium light beige head. Fruity hops in the aroma along with berries, red currants, raspberries, and peaches. More touch of forest in the mouth with berries, wild berries, wood, grass, hops, pine and alcohol. Medium bitterness, and a soft mouth feel. A nice balanced mixture of flavours in this ale.

Bottle. Lovely red hue. Good hop aromas. Initial taste of sweet malt flavours but balanced off with good hop bitterness. A big beer, but not over the top.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled 500ml (Pikkulintu)
Deep amber-red color, small off-white head. Flowery, trefoil, sweetish, honeyish aroma. Medium-bodied. Caramel, flowery-fruity hoppyness. So it is sweetish, but not too much - balance is just right. Good brew. My first beer from Renaissance Brewing. Now would like to get more.
