Never a smart idea to drink anything unpasteurized with a "best before" date of 5 weeks ago, but I did, and...other than the dirty-socks aroma, it’s actually not too bad. Wouldn’t really put it in the PL category actually, has no adjuncts and some more serious malt. Would like to try a fresher version for sure

Snegurochka (389) - Tromsř, NORWAY - DEC 18, 2012
330ml from tap, shared with Stefan @S, Brevinga, Tirgonu iela 4, Riga Golden/orange body, with small creamy layer and some lacing. Honey, hops and floral aroma. Tastes also of dry hops and some orange notes. Too carbonated and served too cold, but it is a very cold day in Riga today:-)

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2013 40cl on tap as "Hansa Eerste". Almost clear golden to orange with a white head. Sweet and malty with notes of honey, yeast and grain. Light to medium body with a slightly fizzy feel. Sweet and malty with a pleasant bitterness in the finish. Quite drinkable and refreshing.

zenkis (619) - Ogre, LATVIA - OCT 14, 2012
2012, bottles @IKI So far in with my short term memory it is worst beer I have tried. Wanted to pour it into the sink but gave it to sister to some hair tending stuff - hope she will be at good health after. Aroma and taste of lawn or forage. Producer should put a tag on bottle "Don’t try this @ home!"

No aroma, eerie appearance, no aftertaste, disappointed in overall palate. Made on Jüri, Estonia

omhper (20182) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 5, 2012
Draught at Alaus Stacija, Riga. Clear deep golden creamy head. Restrained hops in a sweet malt aroma. Faint notes of bubblegum and butter. Light bodied, mid dry with saltier bitter finish. Quite nice.
