3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33cl bottle. Cloudy orange with huge white head.
NOSE : strong tart aromas with striking aromas of citrus : pomelo, lemon and zest, apple, lavender soap, yeast, pine and some herbal notes.
SIP : medium body with decent carbonation. Oily texture. Sweet grains are quickly covered by some funky strange flavor of old lemon and it’s zest. Like something went wrong with the beer. Soap like aromas are overwhelming but still this funky citrus flavor is dominating till the end. Bitterness is reminding some chemicals. Aftertaste is herbal and dish washer like.
OVERALL : Strange one. If it was intended then I don’t seam their targeted audience.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled@Viisi Penniä, Helsinki. Hazy orangeish amber colour with a big off-white head that leaves some lace. Aroma is sweet malts, grains, some slight rye bread, beads and mild floral notes. Flavour is floral bitterness along with some rye, chocolate and mild toasted notes as well. Rather messy beer with flavours going in all directions, and no real balance to it.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
330ml bottle (Viisi Pennia, Helsinki)
Starts off with a warning sign - aggressive carbonation swirls up all the crud, and forms a worm. Looks like diarrhea in the glass - chock full of unmentionable floaties. Smells dirty and vegetal. Nasty sticky palate, pasty, aggressive carbonation. Very dirty taste, vegetal, muddy. Nasty. Not pleasurable to drink at all. If I was at home, this would have been down the drain after 2 sips. The first badly made beer to come out of amiata.

33 cl bottle @ Viisi Penniä. Rated on 19.04.2013
Aroma is stale and unpleasant with potato cellar and mold. It feels soapy. Flavour is sourish with some fruitiness, moldy notes , some spices and gooseberry bush. Spicy notes get stronger towards the end. Very odd stuff.

Bottle 33 cl, BBE19.03.2014. Pours dark orange in color with a foamy whitish head. Loads of grapefruit, some piney notes and a bit of some sharper notes as well, which could be described as some vegetable one in this case. Grapefruity, grassy notes and some soap in taste. Same soapyness continues in finish as well.
