330ml bottle (Gallows Bird, Espoo)
Ewwww, sour aroma. maybe a bit pooey. Rough dirty taste. Some sourness too. I like these guys’ good beers, but this is should be called "arse bisquit", not "shark biscuit". 9 Fucking Euros, WTF.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle@gallows. Copper colour. Some yeasty residue, or something I first took as a light infection (sort of aceto vinegarish), but now thinking as woody, oaky. Tropical fruity, solid caramelly nose beneath that. Med full body, quite smooth, nice. Has a bit of sweetness, but bitters just enough for balance. Quite nice tangerene, tropicals hoppy mix. I keep editing this rating over and over. This has a lot going. There’s some flanders kind of vibes here, hoppyness, everything. Keeps surprising.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
33cl bottle @ WilliamK, Kurvi. Batch #0037. Bottled on Nov 13. Deep amber, thick white head. Woody, biscuity aroma, caramel, yeast, fruity. Complex. Perhaps somethong else now than what the brewery intended, but still I find the aroma interesting. Flavor has dark fruits, mango, hops,wood, toffee. Very interesting twist here. So tasty, whatever the style. Now off to Tuska Open Air Festival.
