oh6gdx (20274) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 15, 2011
Bottled (4.6 % ABV, no mentioning of bottle conditioned on the bottle, bought from K CM Kivihaka, Vaasa). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is fruity and grassy hops along with some mild spices. Flavour is fruity hops with rather spicy notes as well as some sweet malts as well. Very smooth palate. As it warms up it gets quite sour berryish. Very pleasant brew!

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 8, 2012
Cask at Wellington, Birmingham, 4.2% ABV
Pale blond color, creamy head. The citrusy aroma is very nice. It has a smooth and light mouthfeel, with light malt flavor, traces of straws, a nice mix of citrusy hops and earthy character, manure possibly; strong bitterness; maybe the final is too bitter and not really fruity.
Very refreshing.
