2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A slightly reddish beer with a weak and blond head. Aroma is mild, toffee, some berries and fresh, wet forest after the rain. Sometimes there are some sour, sulphur and unpleasant nuancees in the aroma. Taste is also too mild, toffee, some drying woods and hint of sour&sweet. Medium- bodied, nice body, lightness isn’t bothering. Quite nice beer, but unfortunately, too mild and carefull.

Taste of spruce and grass. Just a very mild bitterness, mixing with a very brief sweetness, which for me is good because I prefer bitter over sweet. A very subtle taste, overall, that could use a little bit more bite.

23.5.2014. Aroma and taste of citrus, malts, spruce, a bit thin. Could use some more kick.

Ihan omaperäinen tuote. Huhtalan talouteen hyvin sopiva hippijuoma. Enemmän saisi olla potkua.

Drank from a bottle with lunch. The beer has a nice, sweet flavour of spruce sprouts. Interesting but a bit too subtle. Looks good.

Nice one with some hops and straw. Vegetables, acid and herbs in the back. Drinkable and unusual. Nice one.

Pours out of the bottle (Thank you, Patrick!) in a red-dark brown colour with steady head and medium body. Aroma of woods and pomegranate. Taste of spruce, citrus, hops, bread and cherries. Fruity and spicy finish. Liked it.

There’s clearly much spruce/herb aroma. I can taste it too, though. It’s quite thin and bitter too.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark reddish color, small white head. Berryish, sweetish aroma with some spiceyness - maybe spruce sprout, hints of resin. Light bodied. Spruce sprout flavor is dominant. Berryish sweetness, low bitterness. Interesting brew, but not enough substance to carry to the end of the bottle. Also quite flat, could use more CO2.
