2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled bottled @ Fête de la Bière Finlandaise. Brown ale with spruce if I remember correctly. Dark brown amber with only some tanned bubbles on the side. Nose is cold iron & honey, moldy rug, sugar, very watery with lots of mold. Taste is weirdly watery, light peat (wth?) moldy & watery candy, tar, charcoal, heavily herbal, burned herbs, huge mold. Weak carbonation, strongly watery. All these weird flavoures, peat, huge mold, burned herbs & a very watery body on top. Nope, nice attempt at doing something different but not a success.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Darker amber in color with tin off-white head. Sweet butterscotch, grainy notes in aroma. Malty and some sweeter notes in taste. Dark fudge, little bit roasted and something from the green meadow in taste. Lot better than expected. Refreshing in a way as well.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
