olio (9276) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 22, 2013

Pours hazy golden color with a small head. Aroma of nuts, toffee notes, sweet fruits and some hops. Flavor of caramel malts, nuts, some biscuits, resin and faint hop notes. Low carbonation, slick palate. Not refreshing enough, a bit too nutty also.

lusikka (7689) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUL 16, 2013
500 ml bottle.
Pours an unclear golden colour with a white foamy head, which fades quickly. Aroma of caramel malts, nettles, hay and strong grassy notes. Flavour of strong grassy hops, caramel malts, strong grapefruit, nettles, fruitcake and some yeastiness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation and a lingering bitter finish. Maybe a tad too musty and not as refreshing I was hoping for, but still a good beer.

Idiosynkrasie (6396) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 11, 2013
500ml bottle. Cloudy orangey golden colour with small to average, creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Hoppy aroma has a fruity and a herbal touch, hints of grapefruit, pine and hay. Taste is minimally sweet caramel malty, hints of pear, apple, banana, very mild hoppy, minimally herbal, grassy, in the finish minimally bitter hoppy, hints of cereals, husk and toothpaste; extremely soft palate. No real off-flavours, but some of them are hard to itemise.
