Pungent juniper aroma with pepper and a hint of grapefruit. Very different. I would like to try this with lobster, or pork loin with sweet cabbage, caraway and caramelized apples.

330ml Bottle - Golden with a white head. Juniper, sap, lemon and hops in the aroma. Quite a woody scent. Hoppy and slightly spicy taste with juniper standing out along with notes of malt, strawberries and bubblegum. The finish is quite spicy and woody. Rather interesting, but I don’t think I would be drink too much of it. One bottle is definitely enough for me.

Bottle from Systembolaget Märsta.
Hazy golden with a small white head. Really a lot of Juniper berries in this one, especially in the taste. An odd beer but pretty good.

Mackan: stor doft och smak av tall och ener. Ingen större eftersmak. Ganska speciell men helt klart intressant.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle at Malbaren, Stockholm, best by 2013-1-15 extremely lively juniper, ginger, lemon juice and dried flower petals in the nose. fresh cut ginger is popping from beginning to end, and the soft, velvety texture combined with the spice and prickliness of juniper gives it striking vibrance. light, pillowy carbonation with a dry body. lingering flavors of ginger, lemon (growing more pronounced with time) and juniper with quaffable acid and spledid balance, it’s expertly made, exceptionally clean and all around delicious.

Bottle at Mathias Dahlgren Matbaren. Very clean spices in the nose--a gentle, mild juniper (is Swedish juniper different?), cucumber, white pepper, radishes, citrus, and aloe. Nice and bright, and I don’t really like juniper that much. Mouth is very light, not as fresh as the nose, but still nice. Very easy drinking, balanced, was worried because juniper can be so overwhelming, but this is done very well. Finish has some mild off dishsoap notes, but doesn’t linger. Overall, very clean. Excellent with the cucumber, squid, and ginger dish.
