2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle pours an amber citric colour that gives a light white foam that leaves quickly. Aroma smells of citrus and banana which turns the associations towards IPA's when it come to the hops used. Taste is bittersweet but watery and seems to be lacking a little on the top flavour, but leaves a long lasting bitterness that is complementing the beer well.

Lasipalatsi. Jaska. Eliittikokous. 50-luvun tunnelma. Hyvä olut ruuan kanssa. Parempi kuin dunkel.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.5 bottle. Gold color; small, white head. Aroma dominated by fruity hops and yeasts, very little pale malts; seems genuinely Belgian but rather soft. Taste is mostly hop though, a tad reminiscent of IPAs and doesn’t have much in common with Belgian ales. Medium body, slick texture, and soft carbonation. Bittersweet finish, again mostly hop and quite fruity. Overall I expected the beer to be better though I cannot say it is unsavory, it has its small merits.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500 ml brown bottle abv 4.2, bought at K Kilpishalli Finland.
Tall persistent head. Amber body, some particles.
Hops a lot in scents, grass, gooseberries.
Tastes a bit as wheat beer, with hops, grass, gooseberries, some malts.
Mouthfeel almost complete, distinct bitterness, though some metallic and watery parts. Finally I felt some roasted "metallic" malts, cold dry.
Quite a lot from only 4.2 abv.

Drank from a bottle in a bar. Very smooth and fruity ale. Not very strong with tastes but everything is at its proper place. Looks gorgeous in a glass.
