Dermi (1051) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 8, 2016
12 fl oz, bottled. Pours clear amber with amazing white head. Nice bubbles. Aroma: Strawberries, wood. Raspberries. Taste: Milky sweet, smooth. Strong bitterness. Malty backbone. Fruity flavour, currants, notes of leaves. Very pleasant. Palate: Medium body, velvety. Bitter aftertaste with some wooden tones. Not a big fan of the finish, otherwise nice, strongly hopped pale ale.

Hermod (5874) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JAN 23, 2016
355ml bottle from Alko. Poured amber, slightly unclear with a thick creamy white head. Piny, lemony, sweet tropical fruity aroma. Quite juicy stuff. Feels somewhat thin for the abv, but makes it very drinkable. Hoppy, citrusy, floral flavors with a dry, slightly woody finish.

355 ml bottle from Alko

BBE 31/10/16 (importers label) - Pours clear orange with a small white head. Aroma of cardboard, aged hops, grass, citrus, pine, hints of earthiness and caramel. Taste is earthy, hoppy and sweetish with some citrus, pine, resin and caramel. Finish is slightly cardboardy and grassy with some pine, resin and citrus. Decent, but not very fresh.

Jyrsa (417) - - JAN 17, 2016
Bottle from Alko. Pours hazy grayish orange with a strong orange-tinged head. Nose of grapes, citrus and caramel. Oh boy what a nice amount of grapes! Malty body with licorice, some alcohol and the some caramel. Bitter but not as sweet as nose might have hinted. Crisp carbonation with a sticky body. The nose had me expecting a much better experience.

Rated ma 04.01.2016.

tap@gallows. Yellow light hazy. Citrussy nose, some hayish, green tart berries on nose, farmy/saisonny feel. Med bodied, crisp, bitter, slight tart even. Golden malty, dry honey, citrus, some tropical yellows. Feels rather belgy ipa. Apparantly not intended as such, guessing the keg hasnt had an easy trip. The finish is pretty harsh actually.
