(Draught@Old Brick’s Inn, Jyväskylä) Spicy and fruity aroma. Golden colour, hazy, carbonated, mostly diminishing white head with some lacing. Spicy, bitter and fruity flavour. Fizzy carbonation, dry and medium to full-bodied palate. Very tasty beer! 15/04/06

Miksu (5039) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - APR 22, 2006
Draught at Old bricks inn, Jyväskylä. Peach-golden color, thick creamy head, bright. The aroma is dominated by coriander and bitter orange. Rich, full, and heavily carbonated palate. Sweetish fruity flavor, with emphasis on orange. Bitter fruit finish with strong dry coriander spiciness, which stays in a mouth for a quarter of an hour. The coriander and orange peel flavor is good but quite dominating. Although wheat is not used, this brew is very wit bier like.

Draught. Hazy golden colour, no head. Sweet fruity and wheaty aroma. Flavour is hoppy, sweet and flowery. Quite typical blonde, but still welldone for being a Finnish beer.

200th rated Finnish beer.
A bit hazy orange color, small white head. Fruity (mangostaan, water melon) and yeasty nose. Medium-bodied. Fruity, semi-sweet, nicely backed with alcohol. Dry slightly hoppy aftertaste. Could have a bit more body, but on the other hand it makes this refreshing session beer (extremely drinkable despite of 6.8%).

(Draught@Urho’s) Sorry, it’s available in April, not May! Hazy golden color with a smallish, tight head. Very fruity, fresh aroma with some yeast and lemony witbier spiciness. Fruity, slightly cardboardy, sweetish flavor. Not very complex but ok. The aroma promises more than what you get. Slightly acidic, light to medium-bodied palate with somewhat fizzy carbonation. A fresh and easy, clean blonde without much complexity. Quite balanced and refreshing. Very well done, considering this is the first Belgian-style brew from Huvila!
