laiti (8071) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2012
33 cl bottle @ lusikka, bottled 19.09.2012, BBE 19.01.2013
Aroma is rather fruity with peach, passionfruit, citron and grapefruit. Feels a bit leathery. Flavour has lots of gooseberry bush, some grapefruit and hints of herbs. A bit too aggressive gooseberry notes, but good anyway. Could be IPA as well.

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2012
500ml. Clear-to-clouded orange with a fine slim head. Good pissy Citra snout; celery, lychee, strawberry chew. Brittle limey hop front; soap, blackcurrant, flowers and lemon zest balanced with even more deep biscuity malt than usual. Good but not exceptional.

dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 4, 2012
Bottle @ sticky floor tasting. Aroma is grassy fruity hops with a touch of nelson like winey notes. Flavour is again a perfect crisp dry yet full hop bitterness combined with a perfectly balanced malt note. Damn I love the kernel.
