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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Sweet perfume and flowers aroma. Lovely! Amber color, off-white head, good lace. Sweet, very malty, lots of hops, light sourness and citric (orange). Quite warming for a beer with only 6% ABV.

50 cl bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere. BBE 31.12.2011.
Rated on 20110802.
Hazy copper colour with a small head. Fruits, mostly apricot and citrus on the nose, also some notes of malts. Flavor is malts and apricot, notes of citrus. Something seems to be missing for this to be an enjoyable beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2008 Draught at the Arandsnest, Amsterdam. Bright copper color with creamy head. Sweet parfumy aroma with orange, pepper and spices. The same elements are present in the taste along with berryish twist, malt, vanilla and some buttery taste. Very tasty and balanced.
Tasted again from bottle in December 2007: Less fermentation aromas and flavors, more malt and caramel 6-3-6-3-13. The draught sample was definitely better.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden colour. Pours with a big head. Spicy hop aroma. The sweetness is (over-?)balanced by almost harsh bitterness. The body is more than medium and it is soft on the palate. A better than average blond, though the flavour does not quite live up to expectations from the appearance and the aroma.
