blonde. well carbonated, almost spritzy. aroma is bready, some yeast. light/med body. yeasty/bready malt dominates the flavor, with a mild herbal hop finish. i think i liked this one not quite as much as everbody else, despite having brought it myself. definitely a thirst-quencher, though.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
33 cl bottle at Het Warm Water. Hazy amber color with a fluffy white head. Stone fruit aromas. Fresh stone fruit with something like incense (or fennel?). Very different. Medium body with smooth carbonation. Finishes well balanced. The odd herb flavor seems to blend into malt and fruit. Turns out to be a balanced finish of herbal bitter and light fruit. Very nice.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Misty blonde. Gorgeous herbal-funky aroma; fresh flowers, lemon juice, quiet white fruits, lavender. Vivacious and complex, but stunningly soft and cleansing; like taking a springtime nap in a wildflower meadow. Flavor of green peppercorns, flower petals, dandelion residue and a soft, dusty sweetness of yeasts. Funky bitterness; white tea, sweet basil leaves; so much earthy complexity all glowingly fresh and intimate, while the shades of musty yeasts, sophisticated clean malts and vibrant garden hops just adhere to each other so easily and artfully, with a kind of indesribeable nostalgic aura. Palate is soft, medium bodied, crispy and green; lightly nutty and buttery dry white wine finish. Wholly evocative; a beautiful beer that made me feel like it was blossoming at just the right time, and just for me. Thanks Eric!

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
750mL bottle, courtesy of bombshelter. Thanks, Eric! Pours a hazy, yellow-brown color; huge, fluffy white head with great retention and foamy lacing; gorgeous pour. Very grassy, yeasty, herbal-driven aroma; really nice herbal, dry, yeasty nose; great, aromatic stuff. Medium-to-full mouthfeel: chewy, estery and yeasty core; nice herbal and mineral character; nicely balanced in the mouth, pleasant herbal notes mixed with the dry, yeasty core; intensely drinkable. Lengthy finish, herbs and minerals; soft breadiness and toasty grains. Great stuff.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2014 (Old rating, From old notes. Tap at Pikkulintu on 2007-12-31.) Clear nice taste of hops. When the beer gets warmer the taste of the malts appear, too. Nice beer. Old score: 3.4
(Re-rate, keg at Maltainen Riekko, 20141121) The beer poured golden and cloudy. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had fruitiness, sweetness and mildly Belgian style yeast. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, peach, Belgian style yeast, floralness, sweetness, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet, floral, and bitter. A tasty but also somewhat weird brew.
