0.5 l bottle from Alko. Orange brown colour, little head. Taste is mainly hops and fruits or caramel. I didn’t taste the berries, but this was quite interesting anyway. I just was not in the mood for this beer.

Orange brown, big head, cloudy. Banana, yeast, caramel. Bit smoky too. Medium bitterness, medium sourness. This beer is pretty challenging: definitely has plenty of character but it’s hard to tell if it’s really good. Maybe second time will be better.

Freshly hopped with some malt and some berries in the back. Quite drinkable with a fresh hint and dry + bitter end. Classic one.

Bottle from oh6gdx - many thanks, Patrik! The beer pours out in a hazy amber colour with low head and smooth body. Aroma of hops, berries and herbs. Taste of fresh hops, mild berries, rye, oats, barley and cake. Citrus finish. Nice one.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cloudy orange body, white head. Aroma has some light fruits and quite nice smoky tone. Flavour is just horrible. Unbalanced smoke and some very mixed yeasty malt. Cant get hold of this one. I really would like to like this but it is just too horrid.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle from Alko. Pours hazy orange with a white head. Esthery, yeasty aroma with the somewhat sour aroma of buckthorn berries clearly present. The flavour has some sweetish malt, yeast and sour berries with hoppy bitterness. Buckthorn dominates the finish. A bit of a mish-mash that fails to excel.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. Golden, small and fully diminishing head. Moderate, malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel and light bread, light berry fruitiness and herbal hoppyness, some yeast. Body is medium, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and light bread, faint fruitiness, light herbal hoppyness. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish, light caramel and faint sourness, light notes of barnyard, light – some herbal and vegetable hoppyness, light yeast. I do not get these spiced ales. This one reminds me of homebrew gone bad. Not so enjoyable.
