COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Holiday Booster är namnet på alla högtidsöl från Sigtuna Brygghus. Påskölen är baserad på bryggeriets första brygd, Unicum Verum, och är en mörkgul belgisk strong ale med karamellig alkoholsötma och kryddigt jordiga toner samt extremt stor beska. Ölet är en hyllning till ölets själ – Humulus lupulus.

yespr (31220) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 6, 2008
50 cL bottle. Pours clear and golden deep orange with a huge light and head. Mild yeasty and spiced aroma. Light caramel note and somewhat fruity acidic. Sweet fruity flavoured. Mild spiced and dense malty. Light acidic into a mild fruity finish. Has alight off-note and this could be a mild infection.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2008
Bottle, Stockholm, Sweden. Great appearence, a light orange with a full, creamy, lasting head of foam. Awfully aromatic, but not the nicest aromas, maybe some fruits, leather, polish and plastic. Flavor has a harshness that I don’t like, a lack of finesse. Sour fruits, light fruits, some sweetness and a bit of harsh alcohol on the finish. Not the best beer.

TBone (12548) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 22, 2008
Bottled (BB 09/2007)
Hazy orange color, big cloudy off-white head, lace. Flowery hoppy nose, almost like in Öland’s beers! Crisp, pine needle hoppy, alcoholic Belgian type ale. There is some sweetish fruity notes and hops. Quite nice tripel and very close to Unicum Verum.

oh6gdx (20333) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 22, 2008
Bottled (thanks omhper). Hazy orange colour with huge fluffy and lively head. Aroma is yeasty, fruity and quite spicy. Flavour is earthyness, fruits, spices and also has some quite grassyness in it. Grassy and earthy finish.

Rastacouere (6130) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 18, 2007
A huge white foamy and active head covers the cloudy golden body. Serious lacing maintains its position over the liquid. Fairly yeasty, in a spicy way. Its soft malts procure gentle honey notes that match the floral flavours in unisson. More than fair alcohol accompanies the drinker, but an almost wheaty, very soft acidity compensate the loss in drinkability aptly. Phenolic and growingly bitter finish (leafy, floral), though still grainy a plenty. Almost excessive carbonation bites the tongue, but fits better a beer of that type than most,

Ungstrup (29334) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 1, 2007
Bottled. A hazy orange beer with a lazing white head. The aroma is sweet and very spicy - especially coriander. The flavor is also sweet and very malty and with a more complex but still strong note of spices, leading to a dry spicy finish.

thewolf (11184) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2007
Bottle. [thank you, omhper!]
Pours a hazy yellow-golden with a fine staying medium and very creamy white head. It leaves lots of lacing. Aroma has oranges, lemons and weak caramel malts as well as a woody pine edge. Flavour is sourish but there is a wonderful creaminess to it! Oranges, barn, pineapple, pine-like bitterness. A little tart and sharp, but otherwise very nice.

Miksu (4948) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2007
Draught at Stockholm Beer Festival 2007. Copper color. Sweet honeyish and perfumed aroma. Dryer taste, malty woody, peppery and clovey with herbal hoppiness. Tastes a bit like dry hopped. Spicy and bitter finish.
