sayravai (4691) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 12, 2008
Bottled, 0.75l. Clear amber - hazy with yeast - with a small, partly lasting head. Very mild aroma of caramely malt, berries, nuts, cinnamon, and some other spices. Caramely-malty flavor with yeast and lots of Belgian-style fruitiness. Spices are present, but not as dominant as in the aroma. Medium body with quite a lot of carbonation for this brewery. Something between Leffe and Jacobsen Golden Naked, which equals roughly something ok, but nothing very interesting.
