3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle.
Pours a dark copper golden colour with an off-white foamy head. Aroma of floral hops, some berries, citrus and some caramel. Rich flavour of herbal hoppiness, caramel malts, passion fruit, pungent citrus and surprisingly strong juicy berries. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and smooth mouthfeel. Finishes juicy, bitter and berryish. Berries are much more upfront than on the Mette Marit brew. I kinda like it, but maybe it’s the Mosaic talking.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught at Man in the Moon, Stockholm, 11 Jan 2014) Reddish amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, fruity nose with notes of citrus, orange and caramel. Fruity, hoppy taste with citrus, grapefruit, apricots, caramel, hints of blueberries and a generous citric bitterness. Almost full body, with a slight sweetness. Well balanced and tasty, with the berries more in the background than in some of the sister brews, but still quite evident, more so in the taste than in the aroma. Very nice.

UPDATED: NOV 10, 2013
33 cl bottle @ William K Kurvi. Batch #237, BBE 09.10.2014
Aroma is fruity and juicy with caramel and pineapples. Flavour is tart with some fruity hops, lingonberries, grapefruits and caramel. The tartness and bitterness do not quite match. Not bad anyway.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pine & lime hop aroma with a fruity spicy edge. Cloudy amber , low golden foam. Melonoidin, roast, blueberries noticable but fitting right in. The spicy hops and berries make me think of flavored vodka for some reason.
Medium body, a bit tinny dry on the tip of the tongue.
