Nocturne (879) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2014
750ml plastic bottle. Hazy orange/brown. Just a small ring of head. Aroma to me smells "foresty" (that’ll be the juniper) with notes of glue and banana yeastiness. Taste is similar, but feels a bit more complex, mainly I think from the rye grain influence. Drinks a bit easier than 10%. Odd but strangely compelling; about what I expected.

UPDATED: OCT 7, 2014 750 ml bottle
Clear mahogany beer with no head. Aroma has glueish yogurt and fruit candyish banana. Flavor is slightly tart and fruity sweet with strawberry and banana. Full and soft palate. Long finish with banana and alcohol. Compared to the normal version, this has more alcohol and more glue.

kerenmk (2549) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 5, 2014
Plastic bottle sample at a tasting at our place. Thanks Stas for arranging, thanks Mia for delivering and thanks DSG for remembering and saving us some! Headless cloudy brown. Pungent fruit syrup and spices, then some phenol in the nose. Estery, sweet, a little honey taste. No carbonation whatsoever, light-to-medium body, a little smoky aftertaste. 10% abv. are not apparent at all. Sampled on Friday, bottle opened on Wednesday but apparently remained fine.

zvsn (705) - ISRAEL - AUG 23, 2014
Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks Stas. Hazy red-amber without any head. Fruity and spicy aroma. Sweet with caramel, fruity and spicy notes, alcohol is dangerously well hidden. Medium-full bodied, low carbonation. Interesting.

DSG (6326) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 20, 2014
Plastic bottle sample at a tasting at Stas’s place. Thanks Stas. Cloudy orange-amber with no head. Aroma of yeast, fruit esters, a bit of caramel and a bit of bubblegum. Sweet flavor full of fruit esters, bubblegum, a bit of spices (some juniper), caramel and a bit of honey. Medium-bodied, no carbonation, kinda slick. Mouthfeel is a bit liqueur-like or mead-like, but alcohol is extremely well-hidden. Good and interesting.

Note: originally rated 3.4. Tried another sample from the same bottle 2 days later and gave another point for palate.

mjs (4780) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 14, 2014
(Poured from plasti jug at St. Urho’s Pub XIX sahtipäivät, 2014) The beer poured dark brown and hazy. Its head was small and white. Aroma had juniper, sweetness and malts. Palate was medium bodied and warming with low carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, malts, juniper, alcohol and low bitterness. Aftertaste had sweetness, booze and juniper. A boozy but otherwise balanced sahti.

bunget (571) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 27, 2014
750ml PET bottle generously shared by dnicolaescu. Cloudy orange-brown body, minimal white head. Aroma of ammonia, yeast, glue, pine, heavy and unpleasant. Soft and rounded mouthfeel: strongly boozy, sugar, yeast, grains, fermented bread, some berries. Heavy, exotic and unusual.
