Can at MrHangover’s Niewjaarsborrel. Poured a hazy dark brown with no life at all. The aroma is sweet fruit and caramel. The flavour is strong sweet with a big toffee caramel palate. Truly awful. Way too sweet for me.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thick off white head. Clear amber pour. Sweet with something in the aftertaste I can’t quite put my finger on. Pretty good for a low alcohol beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Small cream to tan head over hazy chestnut to dark brown liquid. Salty nose, as herring in buttermilk and hazelnuts - weird! Precarious balance between salt, sweet and sour... Sweet-sour, again, nutty, but the saltiness is hardly traceable in the flavour, if at all. But in the oral cavity, the balance so at loss in the nose, is achieved. In fact, it has a rather pleasant touch of (weak) Oud Bruin and a bruin tafelbier. Feels - probably rightly so - as if the FG is hardly less than the OG. Very grist-filled and -slick. Carbonation more apparent in the taste than visual. One problem... The Russian shop sold it to me as Kvass. I cannot read Lithuanian - but can they? I liked it, that’s for sure!
