3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
(Draught@SOPP, Lahti) Opaque orange with a medium, lasting head. Very spicy aroma almost perfectly replicates fresh pinewood. Fruity, spicy, dryish and slightly saisony flavor with some sweetness, pinewood and -needles. Medium-bodied, soft-carbonated palate. A strange and very pleasant trip to the local wood store. Definitely worth a try.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. Hazy, golden body with a thin off-white head. Aroma is fruity, like orange, spicy and quite complex. Flavor is really refreshing, floral, ginger, spicy, yeast. Very quaffable, balanced, a long smooth finish and different. Enjoyed this a lot and wonder if something is changed compared to other ratings here?

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Henrik. Pours a cloudy deep orange body with a medium white head. Nose is nuts, peaches, caramel, herbs and hints of vanilla and grass. Taste is mild caramel, butterscotch, herbs and nuts, with some lactic smooth grainy notes in the finish. Full body, medium carbonation. Somewhat strange, but I definitely like it.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
No head, golden-ochre beer. Honey, honingbollen, few things else. Slightly fresher, herbal flavour than the nose, but still a tad unidimensional. Bit flat, slick, alcohol-ish, but served not very well, so... Certainly not bad, but I’m missing very much more complexity, I was led to believe to be there.

Aroma=lots of pineapple and some peach, litchi fruit, a little base malt. Murky light-orange with no top. Tropical-fruity flavour with some pineapple and sugary candy. Very low bitterness and bubblegum notes. Light to medium body, sweet honey at the end, moderate carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very hazy orange color, off-white head. Coriander and clove in the spicey aroma. Sour, acidic ... so infected. Spices are dominant: coriander etc. Some pine needle too. To be re-rated. (6/3/5/3/10 2.7).
Re-rated, new keg: Sweetish, a bit acidic. Spicey clove flavor. (6/3/7/3/13 3.2)
