lusikka (6207) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2014
330 ml bottle @ Naamat, Tampere. Pours a dark copper colour with a white head. Aroma of dried fruits, citrus and grass. Flavour of biscuit, citrusy bitterness, mango and grass. Some harsh grainy notes. Medium bodied and a bit too high carbonation. Refreshing but has that certain carbonated water kind of thing going on.

FatPhil (9281) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 14, 2014
330ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
Initially the hoppy aroma was nice, but later itís a bit vegetal. Nettley, herbal, and a bit yeasty. Itís saying belgian yeast to me, saison-like. Pours an orangy hay colour with an enormous bready persistent head. Sweet herbal saisony retronasals, again a bit yeasty. In the taste itís saisony and yeasty, or at least belgian. Hay-like bitterness, bitter herbs, like some potion from traditional folk medicine. Nice full palate, and nice crisp carbonation too. The yeastiness makes it a bit too dirty, and the bitterness makes you imagine the potionís actually a poison. But I do like the bitter bite, even though it reinforces the nettley aspect which Iím less keen on. No idea how this is "APA" (whatever that is), as itís saying belgian yeast to me everywhere. Curiously, if you add the yeast from the bottle, not only does it mellow as is quite typical, but also it makes it taste less yeasty. Yup, more yeast makes it less yeasty.

TBone (12544) - Pori, FINLAND - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle 330ml (WPBF)
Hazy orange color, small steady white head. Grassy, fruity, gooseberryish aroma. Medium-bodied. Grapefruit, citrus in the flavor. Fruity and hoppy, pleasant APA. Suprisingly good from this brewery.

TET (1618) - FINLAND - SEP 26, 2013
A slightly orange coloured, hazy beer with a blond, dense and almost medium head. The nose is unique, but quite pleasant, lots of citrusfruits, belgianfruits, spiced, also sour apples. Taste is fruitfull, lemon, sourness, strong spicyness in the end with some dry herbs that turns the taste to almost dry. Medium bodied, smooth carbonation, fresh and smooth. Interesting and unique beer, this is nice.

Beerheart65 (1000) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 24, 2013
Nice ligtly hoppy aroma with bit citrus and tropical fruits and bit flowery notes. Deep amber, hazy, short thin head. Light body, semisweet, blancing bitterness, light crisp feel, fizzy carbonation, finish is bitter and dries slightly. Refreshing and easy to drink.
