This was surprisingly good finnish tripel brewed with emmer wheat. Smells of apricot and citrus. Taste has some apricot, citrus and grape fruit aromas with nice bitterness and strong hoppyness.

Drank from a bottle at a bar. A very good beer. The taste is quite sweet, even a bit caramelley. Looks really good in a glass.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle (SOPP2014, Helsinki, Saturday)
Fairly believable belgian aroma. Smooth palate, pleasant carbonation. Sweetish malts, but nice levels of herbal hops too. Stays good even as it warms, and if anything it fills out and improves, like a good belgian should.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flaske 0,5l fra Alko Muonio. Drukket i Skibotn 13 Apr 14. Lys brungul. Lavt skum med litt kniplingslacing. Skyet. Beskjeden aroma av syrlig frukt & litt krydder. Bra fylde med smak av ulik frukt. Litt tungdrikkelig. Blir tørr & bitter etter hvert men det tunge preget vedvarer. KI=6

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
500ml bottle. Hazy amber colour, small mostly vanishing white head, little bit of lacing. Heavily malty aroma of cookie and passion fruit with a hint of aniseed, moderate herbal and citric hops with a hint of dough. Taste is initially moderately to heavily sweet and slightly bitter and acidic, turning into a moderately bitter and sweet finish with a moderately acetic and alcoholic feel. Full body, oily to creamy texture, soft carbonation. Quite a cool mix of aromas, a bit too much alcohol coming through but mainly in the end as most of it is covered by the intense aroma and taste.

Late sunset, copper orange beer with a small white head. Yeast and citrus on the nose, a good smell. Medium bodied. Slightly sour, slightly sweet and medium bitter. Some caramel. Spicy, fruity and very good. I really enjoy this one. Very well balanced.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Many thanks to Finn for this beer gift. A 500ml bottle that poured a solid white head with lots of small bubbles leaving nice lacing rings down the glass. Close to clear golden body. Inviting aromas of lemony hops and bread-like malts, mid-dry and lightly spiced. Well balanced taste profile of oily fruits, lemon, apricot, wheat, and caramel malts. Lingering fruit bitter ending. Full bodied, but still quite easy to drink. Smooth in the mouth. Masked alcohol. Very refreshing. Has got reminiscences of the Orval beer. Lovely (Tromsø 14.04.2014).
