3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2013 Looks liquidised bread indeed, and smells of bread, hops, sour-sweet, as if expecting black-ipa, all in a medium way. Taste is sour rye... carbonation kicks in with slight watery side, accompanied with chokeberry, in the end rubbery not. Rye overall lets itself be known through most phases described, but perhaps closer to bottles end sour note lingers without an adittional taste accompany?

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Tallinna Kaubamaja food department in July 2014. Pours a murky, dark orange-brown; creamy head, retains well. Aroma of good home-cooked rye bread (or the kind they make at Hetk or the neighbouring Spirit); dark raisins and plums, also some roastiness and hop bitterness. Taste is sweet, bready and rather bitter; much like root beer. Medium body and low to medium carbonation, a rather soft mouthfeel (near watery); sour / hoppy finish (kind of rubbery even). Definitely a weird one. Not bad though.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Ehh. Not just on hedonism scale (again, the hoppier stuff I don’t enjoy), but the unique taste, if any, of the rye is largely lost amidst the hops and the added sugar. Nice attempt, not something I’d choose again
