UPDATED: MAY 17, 2009 750ml bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki) - shared by oh6gdx - thanks!
Deep orange, small head. Bizarre aroma - odd fruitiness and brett acidity, but with a noticeable malt component too. Palate crisp. Orange taste, some dry spices too, old cloves perhaps, and a touch of soap. Sourness doesn’t fit in perfectly. Certainly interesting and well-made beer (though the brett is clearly not spontaneous, and sticks out a mile), but not my style.
