Bottle, from the government shop Systembolaget. Widely available.
Hazy dark golden color, didn’t try it very cold so the haziness is most likely due to the beer being unfiltered and un-pasteurized.
Big white head that stayed a little while, but not long.
Mix of malty and sour/acid scent.
Quite sour taste, different from the "normal" Swedish beers. Very low bitterness and virutally no aftertaste. Although, come to think of it, the sourness does linger for a while.
Not something I will buy often, but for a Swedish beer it’s interesting.
33 cl bottle from Systembolaget in Örnsköldsvik. Sampled on August 24, 2013.
Hazy to cloudy golden color, fairly big off-white head. Malty, grainy, bready, fruity, hoppy scent and taste. Medium mouthfeel, medium bitterenss. A bit fruity aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 50 cl) Never before have I had a beer that smelled of....stewed strawberries. But believe me, that’s the case here. So if you never grasped the concept of fruity esters in an ale, then try this one, and you’ll understand.
Neat amber colour with a huge head, that never vanishes completely. Unfiltered and hence hazy. Fresh and....fruity with notes of vanilla in the aroma. Rather unique flavour - if not exactly of stewed strawberries - soft, malty with a discreet, dry bitterness. lovely. 151201

500 ml bottle. Golden colour, slightly hazy. Decent white head. Lager-like aroma with notes of flowers, hay and honey. Flavour is sourish and thin with some citussy notes. Short sourish aftertaste with metallic notes. Disappointing.
