Bottled (From Alko, Vaasa). Hazy amber colour, mediumsized beige head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, some herbs, mild yeast and some slight alcohol. Flavour is slight wooden tartness along with caramel, toffee, some herbs and spices. Quite yeasty and bready as well. Quite pleasant.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle. A slow gusher, producing an almost clear, golden body and a finger-thick off-white head. Belgo-style aroma with fruity notes and sweetish maltyness. Grass, some apples and sweetness in the flavor, typical Belgian style. Quite fruity. A bit thin on the palate, pleasant carbonation. Some bitterness. Fruity finish with a pleasant bitterness. Well, it’s sort of ordinary in a way, but it’s a nice beer anyway. 121005

TBone (13000) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 27, 2012
Bottled 500ml (Alko, #616, brygget 04.05.2011)
Hazy deep amber-brown color, medium-sized steady white head. Fruity wild strawberry aroma, caramel, malts, wood, metal. Medium-bodied. Berries (cranberry, strawberry), woody notes, some hops and even sourish herbal flavors. Simple and slightly uninteresting, but drinkable.

FatPhil (9618) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 5, 2012
500ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
7 Initially on pouring the aroma was almost like an English ale with its hoppiness. It was only when in the glass that the yeasty malts kicked in, and planted this firmly in the Belgian camp.
4 Rich orange. Fairly persistent tight off-white head.
7 Nice earthy bitterness, some spicy nettley retronasals. Good rustic bready grainy body. Very nice attenuation, properly dry, very little sweetness at all. At first, I could taste the alcohol, but that fades once you’ve had a mouthful of all of the other components.
4 Lovely crisp refreshing palate, that attenuation is a big win. Lively carbonation - you’ll be burping this if you drink it at the rate that the refreshingness tells you you could/should. Ignore that 6.5% on the side - this is a damn tasty quaffer. Finish, whilst harking back to the Belgian yeast, has enough earthy hops that it again reminds me of a good English strong bitter’s finish. Nice tingle that would be shamefully rare in UK beers nowadays, but Nogne know what hops are for, and they’re showing that here.
14 Can’t fault this - it’s very solid in every aspect. Not wowing me, but certainly it’s not done anything wrong. Love the attenuation, yes that’s the third time I mentioned it, and the dry bitter finish.

lusikka (6559) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 17, 2012
500 ml bottle. Batch #616, brewed on 04.05.2011, BBE 04.05.2014.
Very aggressive bottle when opened, I must say. Pours a beautiful murky and hazy orange amber colour with a small foamy head, which collapses quickly. Aroma of sweet ripe banana, orange, wheat, yeast and some strong sweet toffee. Flavour of sweet malts and wheat, banana, yeast, floral hops, herbal spiciness and sweet toffee again. Medium bodied, quite foamy and thick mouthfeel and decent carbonation. Finishes bitter, fruity and sweet with some yeast. Some similarities with a Weizenbock. Tasty stuff.

olio (6523) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 17, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2012 50 cl bottle. Batch #616. Brewed on 04.05.2011. BBE 04.05.2014.
Experimental cellaring attempt with this. Age hasn’t been good on this, somewhat toffee-like cardboard is the description I would use. Oh well, now I know better.
50 cl bottle. Batch #616. Brewed on 04.05.2011. BBE 04.05.2014.
Pours hazy amber color with a huge foamy head. The beer was very eager to come out from the bottle as it was opened. Aroma of yeast, wheat, lemony fruits, mild spice notes and hops. Flavor of yeast, fruits, hay, herbs, mild spices and some caramel and banana. Decent.

Hazy orange. Light, fruity, Belgian style, but very soft and drinkable. Apricots, a hint of sourness.
