Mortlach (1124) - Rome, ITALY - MAY 11, 2015
500ml bottle shared by ippopotamo36 (thanks Alberto!). Unclear orange apprarance with no head. Aroma is apricot juice, rotten pumpkin, vomit, terrible! Flavour is very sweet, fruity, with a terrific vomit aftertaste. Some alcohol traces. Medium body, low carbonation. What a terrible experience!

[ PET Bottle ][ 500mL+ ][ rosenbergh ][ Trade ][ Globe ][ 5.2.15 ]
>> Hazy amber pour, flatter/low carbonation. Dunkelweizen nose like the regular Sahti, some vanilla frosting. Taste is brown sugar, no alcohol even at 10%, no acid like the regular version, no juniper, no bitterness, strange overall. Prefer the non "Strong" version.

Theres (38) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 19, 2015
Wow. The aroma is bringing me all back to De manke monnik in Amsterdam or is it Vana tallinn-version of beer.... Good fun. However, he red unclear body has a correspondig questionable flavour... not a favourite. Strong and sweet, ad expected from a sahti.. But off course, it is named finlandia. This is for crazy sauna party.

KM (383) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 19, 2015
Bottle. Slightly unclear amber body. No head. Heavy yeasty aroma, candy, bubble gum. Flavour is yeast, berries, very sweet. Low carbonation. Heavy sweet finish, too heavy. (At home, 19.04.2015)
