3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2014 Bottle from K-Supermarket Kamppi, Helsinki. Pours cloudy golden with a quite big frothy white head. Aroma has an interesting combination of berries such as cherry and currant and spices; coriander and ginger appear, ginger fortunately not too much. Taste is dryish and surprisingly rich in flavour; the strong presence of berries is countered by fresh fruitiness, apple especially, and moderate spiciness. Sometimes these kind of beers go over the top in spiciness, especially with ginger, but the balance in this one is excellently kept. The palate is light, slick and moderately carbonated. Surprisingly varied, given the low abv. A great summer ale: fresh and very original, in a good way.

Can’t say that I enjoyed this so much. Has really nice strong aroma which made me expect more, with citrus, yeast and herbs... and urine.The flavour is sour and spiced, the ginger is quite mild and I can’t find corriander. The sourness is too much for me in this combination, or maybe it is the herbs. It has distinct strong taste, so at least it isn’t just plain boring but maybe the spiced beer isn’t for me.

Slightly hazy golden color, small white head. Orange peels, fruityness, marmalade. Light-bodied. Fruityness, light coriander and marmalade. I’ve had several pints since SOPP - when it is fresh, it is quite refreshing (hi).

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught @ Gastropub Nordic, Tampere.
Pours a cloudy orange colour with a white firm head. Aroma of citrusy hops, herbs, some wet earthy notes and grass. Flavour of citrusy hops, wet earth, mild cooked vegetables, yeast, spices and hay. Ginger is rather well hidden, which is a shame. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Overall a only mildly spiced up beer with some off-flavours.

Pours hazy orange color with a small head. Aroma of hay, some lemony fruits, yeast and herbal notes, sadly some vegetables also. Flavour of sour apricot, yeast, mild spice notes, grassy hop notes, some wood and vegetables. Medium carbonation, sourish palate, dry finish. Could have been decent if it weren’t for those damn vegetables.
