Bottle from River’s Bend. Poured cloudy copper color with a large frothy off-white head. Medium sweet citrus, yeast, woody aroma with a small alcohol tone. Medium to full body with a sticky texture. Medium to heavy woody malty flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish and small alcohol bite. This is a standout beer.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
hazy orange to amber colour, large, creamy beige-ish off-white head; aroma of vanilla, oak and whisky notes, biscuits, and fruits like apple and maybe some peach, too; taste of malty-syrupy sweetness with vanilla, whisky and fruity notes as well as hints of dark chocolate; great Belgian strong ale, but definitely overpriced

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - as Cuvée Spéciale 2014 - from Beerexpress when they were still residing on Gonsiori street (was I think € 20), shared with Mait. The bottle design is different, more traditional than the one pictured. Pours orange, opaque, no head. An armada of floaty bits - WTF? - the bottle has been standing still for half a year. Sourish papery hints. Some berries and red wine hints. I haven’t had a disappointment like this in a long time.

Juhlava omppumehu. Pojun 30-v malja. Pätevän makuista tavaraa. Juuri sopiva happo, kuten louhisaaren juomassa.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
BOTTLE 75 CL. Clear bright amber, small head. Both aroma and the taste have mild acetic notes, oxidized wine and enough malts to balance. A bit of alcohol just spices the things up. Very nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rich bronze colour. Murky. Thin head. Smells sour with vinegar, young wine. Very nice sweet taste. No alcohol for 13 abv. Beer tickles the tongue with almost no carbonation. Some acidity in sourness in aftertaste, which is less aggressive than the one in aroma.
