3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
New batch and slighlty tweaked recipe. (Keg at Teerenpeli Kamppi, 20131010) The beer poured cloudy and orange. Its head was small and white. Aroma had tangerine, Belgian style yeast, spices and malts. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, nutmeg, spices, Belgian style yeast, malts, grass and bitterness. Aftertaste was spicy and bitter. A less than average end result of an attempt to brew a Belgian brew. Unclean and musty.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap (Teerenpeli Kamppi, Helsinki) - brewed in Helsinki, not Lahti
Rich aroma, quite a mishmash. Fruity esters, bready malts, something quite pongy - some sweaty wool socks, maybe? Slightly hazy pale red, keggy head. Sweet in the mouth. Messy, watery and minerally. Fizzy carbonation. Some alcohol in the retronasals later. A bit raw. Not doing it for me. They’re brewing outside their comfort zone. A bit amateurish, like a homebrewer’s experimentation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Teerenpeli Kamppi, Helsinki 18/03/2013. Pours an opaque dark brownish amber with a beige foam blanket. Served too cold. Aroma is fruity with apricots, grapefruit and peach. Fermented fruit in general. Turns more caramel, yeast and sour, fermented cherry as it warms. Taste is apricot, peach, caramel, light syrup and dried fruit. Some sour cherry again here as well. Not bad. Perhaps a bit alcoholic. Medium and quite carbonated.
