lusikka (7622) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 2, 2011
500 ml bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere. Batch 7203, BBE 31.12.2011.
Pours a copper colour with a very small and thin white head. Aroma of strong apricot, citrus and malts. Flavour of apricot, malts, some floral hops and barnyard notes. Dry, malty finish. This should be more refreshing and less malty.

laiti (7744) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 2, 2011
50 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, BBE 31-12-2011
Sweetish and a bit stale perfume-like aroma with citrus. Sweet flavour too with citrus and a bit bitter aftertaste. Some candi sugar and orange peel too. Good and drinkable, but could be more refreshing.

Sigmund (5991) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 6, 2011
500 ml swingtop bottle, kindly shared by my beerpal Ivar. ABV is 6,5%. Hazy amber colour, minimal head. Aroma of sweet wort and caramel, hints of oak and honey. Low carbonation. The flavour is not as sweet as the aroma makes you expect, but is still malty with hints of caramel, and has tolerable hops in the finish.

FatPhil (11835) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 4, 2010
500ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam) tag on bottle said 6.5%
6- Sweet fleshy fruity aroma. Anna gets peach, I get the tomato sauce you find in baked beans. Some sodium ethanoate acidity regulator too. As it warms, it becomes breadier, and loses the dodgier aspects.
3 Clear orange, almost no head
7 Lovely sweet fruity and spicy taste, with a decent bready backbone to hang the other components on. No trace of alcohol at all. 4 Smoothinsh palate, gentle carbonation, but with a nice tingle aided by the bitter noble hops. Finish is a pleasant glide from the sweeter caramelly and fruity aspects to the husky and dry, almost papery, hops. 14 The initial weird aroma when cold prejudiced me a little against this, but after a few sips I was hooked. I can imagine drinking pint after pint of this in summer time, despite the 6.5%

mickmac (484) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - SEP 29, 2010
Tap. Large white foamy head over a clear light gold body. Aroma and taste of coriander seed with a balanced body and slightly sweet finish. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Easy drinking.
