JorisPPattyn (9505) - 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

Svesse (7929) - 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.
