FatPhil (17742) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 10, 2018
Tap (Hilpea Haukki, Helsinki) (4:3:4:2:8=2.1)
Gone-off-fruits sour aroma. Hazy gold. Light palate. Bland taste, some light malts, vague bitter hopping. Bitter bite in the finish. Terribly dull sour, and not even particularly sour.

Tap (Black Door, Helsinki)
Crazy fruity aroma, a real fruit salad. Harshish acidity in the palate. Carbonation’s part of that, and some swirling reduces the carbonic components nicely. Has a simple wheatiness. Quite simple, and more drinkable than many modern sours.

[email protected] William K, Helsinki. Pours slight hazy golden colour with an small white head. Aroma has gooseberries, some herbs. Flavour is quite dry, berries, grapefruit and mild earthy and herbal notes.

TEJA (3434) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 16, 2017
Sampled at the Helsinki micro brew festival 2017. Small but lingering off white head. Cloudy solid yellow color. Mild lactic aroma with pears. The taste resembles pickled unions with mild fruits.

Turboninja (997) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 15, 2017
[email protected], Tampere, Finland. Light/medium sour nuances of earthy citrus and a hint of fruits. Bit watery and unbalanced. Medium taste spectrum and medium/short aftertaste with slightly sour malts. Medium/light body with low/medium carbonation. Overall, refreshing though a bit light on taste.

japppp (215) - FINLAND - AUG 5, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2017 Bottle @naughtyburger. Clear yellow color with no visible head. Aroma is very pungent almost vinegar-like. Taste is more pleasant almost watery and grapefruit is very subtle.

Travlr (27139) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 30, 2017
Draft at SOPP 2017 in Helsinki. Hazy yellow color. Grapefruit aroma. Taste is lightly tart citrus. Refreshing.

Tranquillity (2645) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 6, 2017
Draft. Half hazy body, yellow and orange. The head is white. Lactobasillus aroma, the taste is citrusy.

Rask0lnikov (1665) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - OCT 9, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2017 330ml bottle. Pale yellow colour. Thin round of white froth on top. Aroma reminds farmhouse. Slight barnyard, earthiness, citrusses in the nose. Citrussy at first. Again basis of the farmhouse. Earthy and citrussy in the middle. Juicy, citrussy, slightly salty finish. Citrusses and slight saltiness also in the aftertaste. Refreshing, surprisingly complex, hybrid between farmhouse and gose. Nice one. On tap at Brewdog Helsinki. As Ich Bin Ein Berliner Blood Orange Passionfruit. Fruity but very lactic aroma. Passionfruit and orange are present but way too lactic. Fruity but again lactic taste. Very low carbonated, slightly fruity, bit salty brew. Lactic notes are bothering again. Definitely a disappointment compared to previous experience in the bottle. What happened?
