Euphemos (1) - Tampere, - AUG 30, 2007
Bottle @ Gastropub Tuulensuu, Tampere. Cloudy amber color with a medium-sized white head. Aromas of wild strawberry and spices. Flavor consists mostly of spices, caramel and citrus, more fruity notes can be found when the rest of the yeast is poured into the glass. Moderately hopped. Aftertaste is somewhat metallic due to the type of water used by the brewery.

nathanvc (182) - Brugge, BELGIUM - APR 6, 2016
Pours hazy orange/golden with large frothy white head. The aroma contains fruits, spices, honey and vanilla. It tastes medium sweet but the finish is long, spicy and light bitter. Medium body and fizzy carbonation. Nice, but unfortunately my bottle was too cold to really enjoy the aroma.

erickok (5039) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 2, 2015
Amber body, small head. Sweet caramel, candy. Medium carbonation, quite sweet, but tolerable as the carbonation and starting bitterness balance a bit. Very sweet beer overall but sometimes that’s not so bad. (33cl bottle from ABS Drinks)
