UPDATED: MAY 9, 2014 330 ml bottle @ Naamat, BBE 02.05.2014 (6 days past)
Slightly hazy orange beer with lots of off-white persistent head. Aroma is mild with toffee sweetness, maltiness, some hops and feel of alcohol. Flavor is malty, gluey and salty licoricy. Palate is thicker than medium with medium carbonation. Finishes with alcohol, a slight bite of bitterness and berryish glue. Weird, at least not a weizenbock. Not a dunkler bock either.

33cl bottle @ Villi Wäinö. Brown color, thick white head. Yeasty aroma bun, dark fruits. Flavor has bready malt, yeast, dark fruits, hops. Long fruity finish. Very belgian style beer. Surprisingly good. No bock though.

TBone (13002) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 28, 2013
Bottled 330ml Arkadia. Deep red-amber color, good beige head. Aroma at first is metallic, then some herbal notes, vegetables and caramel. Medium-bodied. Caramel, quite a lot alcohol, bitterness and raw vegetables. Can’t trace much wheat here. Aftertaste has harsh herbal bitterness. Kind of homebrewish feeling.

The aroma was promising, but unfortunately the taste doesn’t live up to it and leaves a lot to be desired. Interesting and appealing choice of bottle though.

Brandman (2148) - Helsinki, FINLAND - NOV 6, 2013
Dark dirty brown body, fluffy offwhite head. Aroma has huge yeasty banana, dark and sharp hops. Bit overhopped. Flavour has roasted malt, caramel and bit chocolate. Unbalanced. Aftertaste is metally and some yeasty bitterness.

Nice bottle. Pretty basic aroma of fruity hops, banana and dark toffee. I was hoping for better.

Dermi (662) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 3, 2013
BB 12.11.2013. 33 cl, bottled. Pours cloudy copperish amber with a decent beige head. Aroma: Malt, toffee, dough, vanilla. Taste: Medium plus sweet, some mild bitterness. Roasted characters. Buttermilk dough. Minimal hints of alcohol. Palate: Near medium body, creamy, quite carbonated. Flour notes in aftertaste, as well as burned tones. Quite interesting and pleasant.

rosenbergh (7423) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 14, 2013
330 ml bottle. BB 22/11/2013. (Alko) Helsinki, Finland.
Dark reddish brown colour with a tiny greyish tan head. The aroma is malty sweetness, chocolate, homebrew yeastiness and some wheat. The flavour is... hmm... it’s rather bad. There’s quite a lot hoppy bitterness, wet cardboard, malty dryness, alcohol and some messy wheatiness. After the Rousal Pils this is a real disappointment. Bad to be honest.

jookos (2638) - FINLAND - JUN 13, 2013
Bottle (hankkijan alko). Red amber, light brown, hazy. Yeasty homebrew, flat soaked malts on nose. Not that appealing. Full bodied. Yeasty malts, yeasty esters. Sweet malts. Some damp paper/cardboard. Ryeish flavors, bready malts. This must be one of them beers whose finesse goes beyond my understanding. Cool 0.33 champagne- closure bottle though. Even nicer than the orval bottles.
