3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Black with reflections, head reduced to single layer.
Aroma: Sweet malts with strong coriander and weak herbal hops.
Taste: sweet with no bitter contrary. Flavors of citrus, coriander with some roasty malts. Carbonation too low, it would make beer more refreshing.
Far too simple to call it black witbier, but quite good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours slightly cloudy very dark brown with airy light beige head. Clear aroma of malt and fruit. Sweetish, malty amd fruity flavour, with a distinct note of coriander. Mild finish. Medium to thin body. High carbonation. Well-balanced, and, well, enjoyable if you like coriander - I positively hate it. The beer is decent, though.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle (?, Tallinn) "You Want Some Of This, Beach" tasting
Super treacly sweet cakey aroma, some gentle raisins and mixed peel. Very dark, tight tan head. Kinda papery and thin malts, some sweetness, but not as full as I expected from the supersweet aroma. Malt centered, obviously, just a hint of the mixed peel, and all the raisin’s gone. Slightly slick palate. Didn’t like this most of the time, but as it warmed (?!?! It was 6C out, it should have stayed cold) it did fill out a little, and wasn’t so watery and bad.
Zarkam (398) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 6, 2013
2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
500ml bottle from Vyborg, hazy dark brown colour, medium beige head. Aroma of coriander and bread with notes of caramel, resin and plum, taste is kind of sweet & sour. Sour finish, not more than a hint of hops, thin body. Aroma is decent, but didn’t really like the taste or feeling, probably would’ve been decent overall if made using actual dark malts instead of a combination of light ones and dark colourant and way less sugar.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2014 Dark brown. Brief beige head. Light watery body. Aroma of caramel & spice. Mostly sweet taste. It leaves a poor impression. Even more if you would study the chemicals that they put into it. The average rating of its beer is really absurd.
