zenkis (537) - Ogre, LATVIA - MAR 10, 2013
pet bottled @Alaus Namai, Vilnius Nice foam and lacing. Quite sweet aroma of berries and clover, although sour also. Taste is semisweet, semisour and above average bitter from hopping and herbs. Medium body, quite thick texture. Light dry finish. As a brewage is nice but as a beer - not enough to me.

mzaar (1504) - Varberg, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2012
Fat @ Alaus Namai, Vilnius. Smörkola och fruktighet, tillsammans med inslag av jord, dominerar luktbilden. Mycket frukt av olika slag (citrus, rabarber och röda äpplen) i smaken tillsammans med ljust bröd och kola.

tussius (10) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 3, 2012
Sweet aroma, nice hints of caramel. A bit weak on the palate and flavour. Pours a nice head (1 litre bottle). Enjoyable and interesting, but not the most impressive beer I’ve tasted.

Bottle from Dan N, thanks. No head. Dark amber color. Aroma of half dark malts amd this is also the taste but also very acidic.

In short: A strangely flowery and strangely fruity copper ale. Fun to try.
How: Bottle PET, forget size, forget where, forget when. At some point while in Lithuania, most certainly shared with friends
The look: Dark copper body topped by a small beige head
In long: Nose has an unusual fruity/flowery character. Taste is equally strange with a flowery and unusual fruitiness. Active carbonation. A bit girly but in a strange way. Kind of hard to describe, and frankly I didn’t take much notes on this beer. It was an unusual treat that was fun to try but not something I could drink regularly. This is a strange beer using a filtering method like I have never seen elsewhere. They use strange process to brew their beers in Lithuania but before leaving for this trip I did some research and 4 out of 5 doctors agree that drinking Lithuanian beers poses less risk for my health than having unprotected sexual intercourse with Lithuanian farm animals. The fifth doctor wouldn’t even talk to me and ran away.

En fût. Pinte dégustée chez Alaus Namai (Vilnius, Lituanie). Arôme: Légère odeur de céréales grillées. Apparence: La couleur est brune. Saveur: Goût de caramel avec une pointe fruitée. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement huileuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de caramel en arrière goût. (Rating #4210)

MartinT (7677) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2012
My Bottom Line:
Floral notes adorns this brew’s lightly toasted and caramelized cereals, lending a flavorful, leveled flavor profile.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-There is no head of foam to decorate the deep dark red.
-Carbonation is prickly but not in an overwhelming manner.
-Toasted malts continue into the aftertaste. This really tastes like their flagship Seklyčios, but filtered through the advertised bed of red clover blossoms.
-An earthy touch is felt here and there, but it is in no way reminiscent of the north’s farmhouse brews. Probably a result of the red clovers?

Plaas (82) - Alkmaar, NETHERLANDS - MAR 7, 2012
This beer has been filtered through blossoms. Theregore, it has an earthy, subtle fruity taste. It is not sweet, it has a long bitter aftertaste actually. Still very drinkable due the fruity aroma. Wonderfully balanced. Much better than I expected, this is not just another beer with some tree hanging in it. This is art.
