Bottled@Tuulensuu, Tampere (old backlog). Golden colour with a creamy white head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is floral, some herbal notes along with sweet malts, mild alcohol as well as some yeasty notes. Flavour is sweet malts, toffee, some herbs, mild yeast, spices as well as some slight alcohol sweetness. Feels a bit thin, but otherwise itís quite nice.

yngwie (15381) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 28, 2015
Bottle. A hazy orange-golden beer with a dense, finger-thick off-white head. The aroma has some Belgian yeast, old damp cellar, some berry hints, a caramel note and some candy. Itís lightly alcoholic on the palate, full-bodied and pleasantly carbonated, but with an unpleasant, weird flavor I canít really pin. Some cellar, quite a lot of fruityness, some pale malts and yeast. Lasting finish. Rather weird this one, although sort of nice when I had some sips. 150328

Il faut la servir très doucement car elle mousse beaucoup ; Elle est blanche est assez épaisse Elle est de couleur caramel, elle est trouble Au nez on retrouve le zeste de citron un petit peu le gingembre aussi En bouche va ressentir des notes de fruits secs,gingembre,confit de citron. Elle ne reste pas trop longtemps en bouche et l'amertume est correct. A profité d'en boire une quand l'opportunité se présente !
