(Draught@Pikkulintu, as "Eld & Lågor", 7.7% ABV, from backlog) Murky amber with a small, firm and lacy head. Mild, citric-fruity nose with some maltiness. Flavor is ashy and stuffy with citric-lemony fruitiness and some alcohol. medium body, quite carbonated. Not fresh, not good.

Bottle picked up in Amsterdam. Pours a brownish orange with a small off white head. Nose of apricots, grapefruits and some grassy notes. Decent flavors of hops and orange zest. Decent stuff. Finishes soft, slightly bitter and dry. Interesting brew from my favorite stout brewer.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. [thanks skortila & caesar]
Clear golden amber with lots of small bubbles fast reaching a big, staying, frothy, white head. Long duration. Lovely aroma with pine dominating, some good fresh cut grass, apricots, apples, peach. Mild caramelly and crisp malts base. Highish carbonation, light and very dry mouthfeel. Flavour is heavy hoppy, resiny, almost tart in its sharpness, citrus abound, almost like tasting hop extract! Piney, fresh, fruity. Really lovely IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma is spices, some yeast and an orvalish funkiness. Taste is spices, brett and rather bitter. A beer that brings strong resemblence with orval.

Orange coloured beer, good head, sticks pretty good an nice. Nice citrus, spiced, hoppy at both taste as smell. First nip misses a bit of a boost, but after that, and specially at the aftertaste are very good bittering.
