boFNjackson (4198) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 30, 2012
Bottle at a recent bottle share... Poured a cloudy reddish/ruby with a thin head. Some booze and oak with raspberry and strawberry tones. Lots of fruit and candied sweetness. Easy drinking with a thick body.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 22, 2012
0.375 L, corked and wired bottle, brought home from Utobeer, London and cellared for 14 months. A medium tall, mostely diminishing off-white head, upon a orangey-golden body with lots of micro-floaters. Smells really nice. Subtle whisky, or maybe whisky liqueur, mixed with a fresh and delicate aroma from the berries added. Also faint caramel malts, wood and vanilla. Taste is vinous with a light astrigent berry flavor. Some sourness, faint caramel and tannins. Medium full, juicy texture. Sourish, astingent fruity endnotes.

Foffern (1605) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAY 4, 2012
Bottle shared with (and great courtasy of) the fantastic Bergen tasting crew with such stars as ClubGonzo, Inbreak and Palme, and the mighty StoreMy. Has an amber colour and is slightly cloudy with a relatively small bubbly off-white head. The aroma has a distinct character of Belgian yeast and is sweet. Reminds me really much of sweet wine gums with strawberries. Towards the end feels wood, oak, and is slightly perfumy. In the flavour I find both sweet and sour berries, strawberry candy, crowberries, and a somewhat berry bitterness be the end. Light to medium bitterness with a smooth and soft mouth feel. A very distinctive and special beer with a wonderful aroma, but is ok on taste.

olio (8782) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 21, 2012
375 ml bottle. Bottled on 08.09.2010. Bottle no. 2523/3200.
Pours hazy amber color with small head. Aroma has a humongous amount of berries, raspberry, bilberries, strawberries, mild hose hip and some fruity notes. Flavor of fruits, raspberries, bilberries, strawberries, some cherries, yeast and some grass. Quite fruity to say the least, bitter and somewhat sour palate.

laiti (7887) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 21, 2012
37,5 cl bottle @ lusikka. Bottle #2523, bottled on 08.09.2010.
Aroma has strawberries and some raspberries – how surprising. Flavour is rather fruity and strong on strawberries, some raspberries and hops. Tart finish. Unlike 01 or 02, this has some CO2 on palate. Really weird and fruity stuff.

tiong (6033) - Espoo, FINLAND - APR 21, 2012
375ml bottle

Bottled on 08.09.10 - Bottle #2523/3200 - Pours dark orange with a small white head. Aroma of fruits, caramel malts and a lot of berries. Taste is malty with hints of vanilla, oak, tart berries, raspberry and caramel. Finish is bitter and fruity with some malts and tart raspberries. Alcohol is well hidden. A bit unbalanced, though

ClubGonzo (5220) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 13, 2012
Bottle, shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew’s Epic Abstrakt/Blåbær tasting, feat. special guests Foffern and StoreMy. :-) Deep orange hazy body, small white head. Nose is stunning: whiskey-soaked sorbet with tart raspberries, blackberries and hints of overripe strawberries. Hints of oak and vanilla. Amazing. Taste is a bit of a letdown: astringent, herbal bitter tones, parching dry tones of red berries and hints of whiskey and wood. Doesn’t really work, at least not compared to the wonderful aroma. Medium mouthfeel, mild carbonation. Truly original, bordering on "weird". Pretty nice, but no winner.
