Marstonlad (769) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 29, 2013
Draught at SOPP2013, Helsinki. A light brown color with a quickly fading head. Aroma has berries and malty and spicy elements. The sea buckthorn berries are very prominent in the flavours, the IPA-style fruitiness is hiding in the background. Hoppiness is mild to moderate. Medium body, slightly sticky palate. This hybrid tries to combine IPA with a Belgian ale and isn’t entirely successful, too much berries and not enough hoppiness, in opinion.

Light brown with copper coloured hazy beer with a beige head. Funky aroma with some caramel and sweet freshly baked bread and sourness - good. Lovely sea buckthorn sourness and hints of flavor. Yeastiness and caramel aswell. Medium palate. Balanced crispiness, sourness and bitterness. This is in my opinion the best beer from Rekola that I’ve tasted. Really good and original.

Erasmus_ro (2543) - Alabama, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Tap @ SOPP Helsinki 2013. Pours a dark, hazy amber with a decent, beige head. Aroma is hoppy, Belgian hops. Whiff of plastic, flowers, light sourness. Taste is dry, but filled with yeast of the Belgian kind. There’s a dab of hop bitterness, but no flavor from them. Yeasty, slightly alcoholic, somewhat caramel. Palate is well carbonated.

Tap@sopp. Yummy saisony funky hayish wheat on nose, a bit of sour orange peel. Body lightish, dry. The saisony hayish things, dry malts. Slightly mouth drying finish. Very nice, one of the best saisonny beers from finland I’ve come across.

Draught at the SOPP 2013, Helsinki, Finland. Murky brown colour with an average sized off-white head. Berries, spices, mild tartness, malt and some sweetness in the aroma. The flavour is malt, bitterness and some spices. Not bad at all. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy and cloudy dark orange beer with a nice creamy head. Aromas of Belgian yeast and some sea buckthorn. Yeasty, sweet and bitter taste. Medium mouthfeel. The first convincing Belgian style beer made in Finland.
