3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, at HaandFestival 2012. An unclear, orange-golden beer topped by a dense, finger-thick off-white head. Citrus peel, pinecones, malty sweetness and white sugar on the nose. Lightly sweet on the palate, with pale malts, orange peel, pine cones and a nice bitterness. Full-bodied, semi-sweet and nicely carbonated, with bitterness and citrus peel in the end. A nice one, but a tad too sweet to be quenching. 120504

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml Bottle: best before Feb 2014, poured into a Westmalle chalice on 5th Aug 2012.
Cloudy orange body, more cloudy after the sediment was added just before the end of my tasting. On top sat a big, soft off-white head of foam.
The smell was of oranges soaked in coriander and peaches: so a fruity aroma then.
The taste was also fruity with oranges again leading the way: different and interesting. Not really my ’thing’ but enjoyable all the same.

33 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere.
Pours hazy amber color with small head. Aroma of spices, soap, barnyard notes and yeast. Flavour of yeast, lemon, spices, soap and some mild malts. Quite far from a traditional bitter, interesting though.

33 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, no BBE info
Aroma is spicy with some urinal cake and hints of citron. Also some cinnamon and cardemum. Flavour is slightly sour and tart with urinal cake, some citron, grassy hops and spices. Definitely not your typical bitter as one can expect.
