maneliquor (2995) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 1, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Red pour with a small white head. Quite carbonated this one. Sweet citric fruits mix with earthy tones and hay on the nose. Subtle beer with quite a bit going on. Citrus, hay, earthy notes. Very nice for a beer that isn’t normally my style

teorn88 (1915) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2012
33cl bottle. Gusher warning. Pours a slightlyhazy golden color with a medium white head. Aroma is caramel, pear, wood, alcohol and pine. Taste is toffee, caramel, grass, wood, pear. Sweet start and bitter finish. Medium to thick body with soft carbonation. Overall, warming and tasty, but not my favourite.

laiti (5415) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2012
33 cl bottle @ home, BBE 01/2016
Aroma is somewhat stale with ripe fruits and hints of hay. Flavour is somewhat sweet and stale with sugar and ripe fruits, especially apricot. Also hints of solvent-like alcohol. Sticky palate. Too sweet, not my kind of beer.

lusikka (5937) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2012
330 ml bottle. BBE 01/2016.
Pours a slightly unclear copper colour with a large, thick, white head. Aroma of strong ripe apricot and light spices. Flavour of strong, sweet and ripe apricot, grassy hops, light spices and quite stuffy maltiness. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a dry, warming and sweet finish. Better than X, as this has more sweetness and stronger fruitiness. Still, this lacks the malty body it needs without any stuffiness.

33 cl bottle. BBE 01/2016.
Pours clear golden color with large head. Aroma of yeast, fruits, malts, herbal notes and some spicy notes. Flavor of caramel, malts, ripe fruits, spices and earth notes. MIld sour palate with a sweetish finish.

tiong (3611) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2012
330ml bottle

BBE 01/2016 - Pours orange with medium white head. Aroma of fruits, spices, malts and some earthy notes. Taste of exotic fruits, apricot, spices and some earthy notes. Slightly sweet and malty. Finish is fruity with some glue notes. Okay, slightly unbalanced.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2012
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a cloudy opaque dark amber with a yellowish head. Heavily phenollic aroma with some alcohol lurking. Medium body, a little lowish in carbonation, overripe fruit, a little chocolate and some hops appearing late. Better than the single X me thinks. 030312

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 16/20
TET (1544) - FINLAND - MAR 2, 2012
A beautiful, cloudy and orange beer with a almost big and beige head. aroma is fruitfull and even overcooked fruitfull, bananas, sweet plums, yeast and some spicyness lurks in the background. Taste is also fruitfull, nice herbal spicyness, some peppers, long and dry aftertaste, simpler taste than aroma. Medium bodied, fresh and quite lot of carbonation. Nice, (belgian)fruitfull beer with strenght and effort, but still the brightest crown can’t be achieved.

evergreen0199 (1924) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 19, 2012
On tap at the excellent Struise beer shop in Brugge, Belgium last Christmas. A hazy golden coloured pour with a small white head on top. Citrus fruit aroma. Tastes quite bitter, dry, citrus fruit. Rather hard work to be honest.
