TrefwoordPunk (802) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2008
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a copper color with a small white head and a flowery, spicey and alcoholic aroma. The taste is very sweet and alcoholic with a sour note in the end. No real finish. I didnít really like this, but I guess it is too much of a winter warmer for a springday like today

austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - MAR 1, 2008
Dark bronze with a little yeast still floating around. Small lacy head. Nose is malty with sweet pearjuice (smurffilimsa, anyone?) and a bit spiciness. Flavor has sweet caramel malts, same pears and some warming spices. Finishes drier with soft bitterness. Mouthfeel almost full bodied with strong and creamy carbonation. Pears donít seem that wintery to me?

(33cl bottle) Clear, amber colour with a short, slightly off-white foamy head. Slightly dusty, sweet toast-malty, nutty nose. Sweet and a bit sugary flavour, medium body impression with a soft carbonation. Soft cara-malty and nutty taste; sweet and faint bitter, spicy finish. Not overly spectacular and a tad too sweet.
