33cl Bottle, found it in my shoe around Sinterklaas. Murky golden amber colour, white head. Aroma of sweet wheat, green tea (like in green tea ice cream), sweet ginger. Flavour is medium sweet, fruity, banana, wheat, some dead yeast, sweet ginger without the pepper-like quality of fresh ginger, cardamon, light bitter yeasty finish. Light-bodied. OK.

330ml bottle (Silk, Tallinn) - shared by Marduk
Cloudy orange, large tight head. Sweet, full, cakey aroma. Slightly vegetal retronasals, tinned green beans and carrot. Full, smooth palate, very soft carbonation. Iím not getting the ginger anywhere. Not really getting the green tea either. Itís like the Iki Beer in a way, but much thicker. I wonder if they water it down to make the 4.5% version? I donít remember anything like this quantity of sediment in the other one either, this is very cloudy. Pretty dull, but drinkable.
