Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - APR 7, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2008 Pours coppet with a crisp white head. Smells of balsamic vinegar, juniper, lots of lactic hints, lemons, touches of bubblegum, sime resiny pine. Tastes sour along the lines of older Alexander. Lots of juniper, phenolic yeasty wheat beer hints, a lactic dry malty hint, lots of earthiness, mineral water. Mouthfeel is full bodied. Finish yields a lot of lactic greatness that compliments the juniper and the cloves present. A near perfect beer that I wish was still available locally.

Cloudy brown with very low and tough head. An heavenly aroma and flavor of choclat banana. I love it.

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2011
From a plastic container, Villi Wäinö, Helsinki. Pale ruby, cloudy at the edges with the faintest necklace of bubbles. Slightly dribble-making blackcurrant and banana yoghurt aroma liberally peppered with clove- 9? Smooth, thick mouthfeel, huge banana and clove, lightly smoked blackberry afters. Almost peaty, juniper, slight sugar tackiness. Top end RB (reindeer-beater), a level of complexity and juiciness above Finlandia.

Miksu (4972) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - SEP 2, 2007
Draught at the Helsinki Beer Festival 2007. Hazy brown color. Sweet aroma with banana and flowery honey. Sweet, malty, nutty, spicy, minty, bready and chocolatey flavor. Some alcohol bite, a little juniper. Thick and smooth milk chocolate kind of texture with some oiliness. Quite sweet but still quite balanced.

Maria (10176) - Thisted, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2008
EBF2008. It’s warm golden with a heavenly aroma of malt, banana, yeast and juniper. The flavour has sweetness and notes of malt, penetrating juniper (in a nice way), banana, a light citrussy sourness, light honey and a very weak touch of smoke. It’s different from any other beer I have tasted, but it’s very, very harmonic and well balanced – I love it!

Lurkkiherra (5) - FINLAND - AUG 9, 2014 does not count
Maybe most famous finnish sahti. Fruity, well-bodied and very tasty! When its not botlled in some cases, when served from 5.0 l plastic can, it looses its carbonation after opening very soon.

PhillyBeer2112 (2547) - Oviedo, Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2003
Cloudy copper color. Small head with nice lacing. Funky fruity aroma, some juniper, allspice, peach? orange candy. Surprised at the acidity in this one! Yeasty sourdough bread presentation, with mild fruity notes and curious finish. A little burning in the finish, definite alcohol presence. Nicely tart, almost balances the strong sweetness. Sticky, almost candyish, but smooth and light on the palate, with a light fizziness. Hints of light wood or smokiness? I almost envision a strange hybrid of Berlinner Weisse, weizenbock, and wee heavy...?! I enjoyed it though, and thanks to austinpowers for this rare treat.
