50 cl bottle. Rated on 29.11.2008
Aroma is rather malty and bready with hints of sweet caramel. Flavour is very malty too with lot of christmas spices. Not very pleasant, but drinkable anyway and goes well with scandinavian christmas foods.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 26, 2010
from old notes Clear, red-brown hue beneath a light tan head. Date and prune sweetness in the nose with contrasting leather dryness and a bit of chocolate. Mild sweetness made bright by roast and acidity, mild tannins, light bitterness. Oily, thick-ish and well carbonated.

Tasty though not particularly expressive in the nose.

50 cl bottle, best before 14 October 2009.
