COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our new winter ale. Available from the end of November. Brewed with lots of spices but they won’t be overwhelming in both aroma and flavour.

lusikka (5341) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2012
330 ml bottle. Bottled on 15.11.2011.
Pours a dark amber colour with a small white head. Aroma of sweet berries, some birch leaves and toffee. Flavour of sweet berries, toffee, toasted malts, some weird stuffy spiciness and hops. Medium bodied, dry mouthfeel and an overly sweet and dry finish. Homebrewish and way too sweet, I’d say.

tiong (3073) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2012
330ml bottle

Bottling date 15/11/2011 - Pours reddish brown with a tiny bubbly head. Strong aroma of berries, spices, syrup and earthy notes. Taste is quite spicy with a lot of berries and some sweet caramel malts. Finish is sticky and long lasting with some alcohol notes, spices and hints of bitterness. Okay, slightly unbalanced spicy ale.

TET (1434) - FINLAND - MAR 3, 2012
A dark brown beer with a weak and blond head. Aroma is dark malty, sweetness, interesting spicyness, anise, juniper, some vegetables that disappeared after beginning. Taste is rich and malty, quite sweet, piney, juniper, spicyness, ginger. Full- bodied, almost uncarbonated, smooth to drink. Succesfull, spicy beer, but spices are balanced and not overhwelming everything, reminds slightly at Haandbryggeriet Norwegian Wood.

(Bottle, 0.33 l - bottled on 15/11/2011, at Pikkulintu, 20120222) The beer poured reddish brown and hazy. Its head was small and white. Aroma had spices and malts. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were spices, sweetness, caramell, mildly roasted malts and low bitterness. Spices were pleasantly mild but the almos total lack of carbonation was disappointing.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 18, 2012
(Bottled) Hazy darkish red with a very small head. Lots of dried fruit, some fermented strawberry jam, and notes of glue in the nose, with a touch of spices. Flavor is more spicy with cardamom, loads of dried fruit, alcohol well hidden. Quite full body, sticky palate with low CO2. Quite sweet and sticky, but an enjoyable brew as such, with all the dried fruitiness (but also the strawberry). 5447
