Pours with a beautiful amber colour. Aroma of citrus and flowers, lovely. A little bitter taste, but a beer I wouldn´t mind drinking again.

Peter_L (637) - SWEDEN - APR 1, 2013
Kopparröd färg med lågt skum. Sötma och knäckebröd i arom samt svagt av honung. Lovar hög sötma. Möts på ett bra sätt av beska i smaken.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 30, 2006
Clear amber, medium sized beige head. Not very strong but pretty good aroma of orange-peels, peaches, nuts, grass and toffee. Quite hoppy flavour of grass and orange-peels with sweetnes from toffee and chocolate. Orangey finish, notes of chocolate. Medium bodied. Acceptable easter offering.

MrWalker (926) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2006
Bottle
Dark brown, medium head with good lacing. First impresion is loads of flowery hops. That developes into a more sweet maltiness with some tannies and coffee notes.Full bodied with some coffee like bitterness for finish. Unusual Swedish easter beer. Reminds me of an English strong ale from a micro wanting to be American. Somewhat unbalanced though. Needs a bit more sweetness. Smother as a real ale, I would like to hope :-)

ekstedt (5356) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 23, 2007
Bottle. Copper colour, off-white to beige medium head. Aroma is hops! Floral, with citric notes, and dried apricots. There are some roasted malt aromas as well. Medium bodied. Nicely balanced, some mild malt sweetness is transformed to a robust and long bitter finish.

mugabe (258) - SWEDEN - MAR 31, 2007
Bottle at home. Pours a beautiful dark ruby colour with a good head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Good body with sweet taste of coffee with a more bitter finish of chocolate and a hint of licorice.

Rastacouere (6123) - 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.
