TBone (12474) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 16, 2009
Bottled (Pikkulintu, BB 12/2014). Clear deep amber color, small off-white. Sweet beery-like aroma (strawberry, panna cotta, wild berry). Crisp carbonation, foamy mouthfeel. Spicey, lemon fruity ... kind of basic Belgian ale, hoppy/alcoholic aftertaste ... I expected this beer to be funky!

petermadsen (390) - Vesterbronxxx, DENMARK - APR 15, 2009
A fantastic dirty ale with loads of must, hay, oranges and a nice punch of herbal and flowery hops. The flavour is rather complex with layers of funk, hops, dry malt and fruit mixing. The best easter beer this year!

thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - APR 13, 2009
Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Pours a bit hazy orange with an impressive, creamy, white head. Super lacings in largeblotches. Long duration as well. Aroma has yeast (and I could detect some brett), oranges, light toasted caramel, biscuits and a light flowery hops note. Highish carbonation, light and dry mouthfeel, very fitting to the beer. Flavour is quite dry, good use of brett, ginger, light bready malts and lots of fine, dry hops. Long, lightly spiced hoppy aftertaste. Good, but yeah... it will probably be better next year.

Adenila (1557) - DENMARK - APR 13, 2009
Clear golden towards amber with a bubbling white head. Medium yeasty aroma with exotic fruity esters. Dry hoppy flavor and overall an easy going well tasting brew. Brett i didnt detect...

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 13, 2009
Orange colored with cloudy appearance. Little yellow head. Strong hopped aroma with American tones, flowers and caramel also here. Medium bodied, highly carbonated. Flavor is also hopped with fruits here, aftertaste dries strongly with mild, even too strong alcohol. Somehow watery palate still, but anyhow good brew.

oh6gdx (20253) - Vasa, FINLAND - APR 12, 2009
Bottled@Timo A tasting session, Tampere. Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is hops, caramel and quite much berries and fruity notes as well. Flavour is quite much the same along with some hints of alcohol. A rather nice weird brew with some twisted notes. Might need some aging, but already welldrinkable.

sayravai (4667) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 11, 2009
(Bottled, 0.75l) Hazy amber with a large, foamy head. Aroma of caramely-toffeeish malt, and woody-nutty-aromatic hops. Toffeeish malt, dry bitterness with nutty-aromatic hops. No alcohol present. Medium body with lowish, soft carbonation. A very basic easter brew, quite similar to the Nøgne Ø / Haandbryggeriet offerings. But at least it hides the alcohol beautifully.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 11, 2009
Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Clear amber golden with a dense off-white head leaving some lacework. Light yeasty aroma. Medium body, fruit, nuts and yeast while the Brett is hard to detect. Finishes rather bitter. Pleasant as it is, but the funk hasn’t really developed yet. Perhaps by Easter-time next year? 200309

Grovlam (4152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 10, 2009
bottle. Huge bubbly white head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Hazy dark amber color. Lovely smooth yet complex aroma with notes of yeast, pineapple, caramel, peach, toasted malt, fruit, nutty and mild floral, citrus notes. Medium to full bodied, average carbbonation, light dry texture, the alcohol is so well hidden. Moderated sweet flavor, mild acidic and bitterness. Sweet fruity and malty finish with an acidic twist.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - APR 3, 2009
Corked bottle. Amber color. Pineapple, pear and lychee in the aroma. A flowery hopbitterness and a pleasant upcoming tartness in the flavor. Notes of leather, tobacco and hazelnuts. Just a touch of alcohol. It should be interesting to cellar a few bottles, I think its character will change significantly.
