3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy reddish amber color, lots of foamy, big pinky head. Aroma is a bit funky, berryish and tartish. Light bodied. Funky notes also in the flavor! Barnyard, tart cranberry, short finish leaving tart berry aftertaste. Probably better than "originally" with funky vibe.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught@Bruuveri, Helsinki, shared by Lövis). Reddish orange colour with a small off-white orangeish head. Aroma is cranberry, some grains, sweet malts and mild toffee. Flavour is cranberries, bready malts and some mild tart wooden notes as well. Most likely this worked as the prototype beer for Saimaan Luomukarpalo...

Tap (Bruuveri, Helsinki)
Reddish, huge creamy orange head. Sweet cranberry aroma. Cranberry retronasals. Refreshing mouthfeel. Decent nutty dry bitter body, but the cranberry just doesn’t work for me at all. Dirty dusty earthy hops finish.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Reddish peach orange. Nose has cranberry juice, some dried fruit, quite lush. Body is on the lighter side. Has the cranberries, even though a bit watered down, some hops, malts, watermelon, red apples. Very fruity, but well bittered. A bit dry, some yeast. Makes me think of a radler the way the fruityness is blended with the beery flavors.
