COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Det frekke ekornet Ratatosk sprang opp og ned i treet Yggdrasil med fornærmingar mellom ormen ved røtene og ørna i toppen. Når ein vanleg dose humle ikkje er heilt nok, har vi dette frekke ølet å tilby: solid bitterheit som balanserar med lett fyldig maltsødme og kraftig humlearoma og smak.

TyggaBrown (380) - NORWAY - JUL 5, 2013
Fantastic! The aroma contains berries and fruits and a bunch of other natural and unnatural notes, so your nose and brain really struggle with identifying them all. But in general they all result in this fantastic aroma, and I could probably sit all evening and just enjoy. The taste is (close to) perfectly bitter, and the beer is also quite winy and heavy and complex. Nice!

Miksu (4938) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUN 26, 2013
0.5 l bottle, thanks hanniku! Hazy pale amber color. Sweet perfumed aroma with orange, lemon, pine and pineapple. Bittersweet taste of orange, kumquat, lemon, pine, toffee and canned pineapple. Full body. Fairly good double IPA with plenty of tropical fruit complexity.

BitchPls (483) - FINLAND - JUN 17, 2013
Hazy light brown beer with a beige head. Very sweet and fruity thick aroma with mildly soapy notes. Quite a full body with thick and soft mouth feel. The hops are strong but soft and not at all sharp. There’s some alcohol and alcohol warmth in the taste. Lots of caramel sweetness. Medium grape fruity after taste. Quite good but not the best of the genre.

rosenbergh (6472) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 16, 2013
500 ml bottle. BB 01/15. (Alko) Helsinki, Finland.
Murky reddish brown colour with a tiny bubbly off-white head. Deep hoppy aroma with moderate bitterness, fruitiness and sweetish maltiness. Seems to be rather balanced DIPA. Is it? The flavour is very strong. It’s extremely sweet. Fruity, piney and resiny hops, moderate bitterness, very dark hoppiness, sweet malt and some herbs in the flavour. It is balanced. There’s some alcohol too but that’s quite well hidden. Very sweet and malty. Still rather enjoyable.

Erasmus_ro (1260) - Alabama, USA - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle. Pours a light orange with a small, white head. Aroma is sweet, caramelly, mostly resinous. A touch of exotic fruits and perhaps gooseberry? Taste begins very resinous, quite sweet, stingy. Turns fruitier and piney as it progresses. Fruitiness is of the exotic kind: Pineapple, papaya. A light touch of ethanol as it nears the finish, which turns out surprisingly dry and bitter after the quite sweet beginning. Tasty. Palate is quite full and decently carbonated. Very good.

laiti (5405) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 1, 2013
50 cl bottle @ lusikka, BBE 04.01.2015
Aroma has sweet malt, resiny notes, fruits and some vanilla. Flavour is sweet with caramel, resiny malt, some fruity notes and nettles. Too malty and sweet. Quite American for a Norwegian beer.

olio (5854) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 1, 2013
50 cl bottle.
Pours hazy orange color with a small head. Aroma of intensely resiny hops, caramel, malts and fruits. Flavor of caramel malts, resiny hops, fruits and some toffee. Too resiny and sweet for me.
