fiulijn (15714) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 5, 2007
Dark amber color; big head. A quite solid brew, with some malt aroma and taste, stronger caramel aroma and flavor, some nice English hop aroma, some rubharb candies taste; but the end is simpler, with just a thin body and some caramel.

Rastacouere (6148) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 10, 2007
A grainy, spicy, toasty nose where the blueberry jam, milk chocolate and tomato seeds form an original and hard to describe nose. Quite tight. Following in the same registry, the palate is malty, with a dose of earthy hops and wild flowers, roots toi follow up. Rather salty (celery salt) bitterness. Original flavours in a toasted malt foundatrion. A bit more residual sugars than I’d want, especially that the body does not put them to good use, feeling quite airy and paradoxally creamy yet foamy, never biting, but never full. Lager-like mouthfeel.

JorisPPattyn (8196) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 29, 2007
Chestnut to Coca-Cola colour; good yellowish head. Very nice, fresh hops nose, mixed with a very obvious and remarkable lemonbalm aroma. Very hoppy taste, a bit of cigar ashes, melanoidins; wood & tannines retronsal. Smoke coming up after a while, both in nose and taste. Quite well-bodied, even some alcohol for its meagre 5.3%. A very good, very original Swedish ale, well worth searching. Thanks to IKEA traveler Stefaan

yngwie (14669) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2007
Bottle. Clear, chestnut body with a beige head. It has malt, hops and some spicyness in the aroma. In the mouth it is a bit soapy, medium fullness, and flavors of malt, some spices, nuts and hops. Spiced and hoppy finish as well. The beer is quite good, yet not my cup of tea. (070427)

Svesse (6715) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 24, 2007
(Bottle) Dark reddish brown colour with beige, firm, slowly diminishing head. Malty nose dominated by toffee, chocolate, coffee and citrussy hops in almost perfect harmony. Malty, fruity taste with caramel, toffee, Seville orange, coffee and citrussy hops in the finish. Lots of good stuff in this one, coffee tend to take over the aroma after a while. Toffee, caramel and citrus tend to dominate the taste. But everything in perfect balance. Liquid harmony.

500 ml bottle. Thin tanned head over a clear reddish brown body. Predominant hop aroma with notes of mild coffee and roasted malts. Pleasant and mouthfilling hopbitter taste with semi-dry dark malts and roasty flavors. Dry mouthfeel, good body, and a pleasant and long lasting bitter finish. A really nice seasonal.
