Tap. Slightly hazy light amber orange poured with no head. Tropical fruit, some citrus and some herbal medicinal aromas. Herbal medicinal and some cough syrup that’s a turn off with tropical fruit coming in over a decent amount of sweetness. Medium to heavier body with subtle carbonation.

Quite good Finnish beer, could have had even more hops due to sweet malty body.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Drank side by side with nögne two captains. This was good, yet lags behind on all aspects. As a finnish beer this is smething really different and well balanced, but compared to two captains, well... Sweet aroma of caramel, glue and alcohol. Balanced mouthfeel and a somewhat bitter aftertaste. Was expecting a bit more refreshing taste.
Good in general, as a finnish beer - excellent.

500 ml bottle. Slightly hazy dark amber colour, thin off-white head. Aroma of sweetish malt, citrus fruits and piney hops. The flavour is sweetish, caramel malty, with tropical fruits and an aromatic, piney hoppy finish. Very nice, one of the best beers VASP has made so far.

Bottle 50 cl. Pours murky hazy brown copper/amber with decent fluffy head and a nice fruity scent. Some orange of top, vanilla, piny, caramel, boozy. The taste in this one takes a while to open up, cant be too cold. This pretty complex. Good one tho.
