TBone (12323) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Bottled 750ml (PBF IX)
Slightly hazy yellow color, small white head. Slightly tart, citrusy aroma. Light to medium-bodied. Very fruity but same time dry flavor. Citrus, light barnyard, some sweetish notes. Slick palate. I can’t trace much of bourbon here but interesting it is.

lusikka (5927) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2014
750 ml bottle @ PBF IX. Pours a clear golden colour with a white head. Aroma of orange zest, butterscotch, bourbon and some brett. Flavour of rich orange zest notes, brett, some floral notes, wood, mild bourbon notes, butterscotch and sourness. Medium bodied and soft carbonation. Bourbon does not work with the base beer. Base beer is better as-is.

75 cl bottle @ PBF Ⅸ, BBE 25.05.2018
Aroma is sourish with white wine, apricot and some bourbon notes. Also grapefruit. Flavour has some white wine notes, bourbon, vanilla and some fruity tones. Feels acidic. Quite bland on the flavour side, I liked the basic Struiselensis much more.
