330ml bottle (Punavuoren Ahven, Helsinki, Belgian Weeks)
Hazy orange, accidentally poured with a few sinky bits. Rich fruity aroma - fleshy fruits. Alcoholically tingly palate, some crisp carbonation. Soft light grain base with almond and citrus - maybe tangerine. A bit alcoholic, but not offensive for 11%. Some nutty late finish.

It has 11% ABV but you don’t taste the alcohol too much. Nicely done. Blond color, reasonble smell. Very nice taste.

thewolf (11726) - Kolding, DENMARK - MAY 12, 2008
Bottle, bought @ YNWA, Kolding.
Pours clear golden with a small very white creamy head - low duration. Aroma is pleasantly bready malts, some yeast and lightly vinious. A bit of exotic fruit notes as well. Quite high carbonation, but still quite creamy palate. Super sweetness, and very soft feel. Lots of chewy malts, light fruitiness and well-balanced alcohol. Good yeast tones as well.
