Kauge (1873) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 16, 2016
Bottle from LCBO. Pours murky orange with persistent creamy white head. The aroma is very pleasantly herbal with cranberry juice. The mild herbs really mix well with the berry sourness. Tastes cranberry juice sweet upfront with herbal and berry bitter in the finish. Crisp thin carbonation, body a bit watery, finish dry. Excellent drinkability despite the domination of herbs and thickish sour berries which I think is always a tricky combination. Really lovely stuff - Id love a chilled glassful of this while strolling in an Estonian bog in late summer - thatd be bliss!

Ce liquide blond leffervescence faible a tout pour sduire lamateur de bire qui recherche une bire rafrachissante boire fraiche. Cette collaboration de Beaus et Kissmayer gote particulirement la pche et les agrumes, ce qui sallie bien avec lamertume modre du liquide. La Nordic Pale Ale, sans tre excessivement complexe, la bire fait bien le travail.

Arseniq33 (63) - Montral, Quebec, CANADA - APR 24, 2016
Servie dune bouteille deux verres. La bire est dore/orange et trouble. Au nez, trs herbac. Un peu de fleurs, un peu dagrumes, un peu de rsine. a sent trs bon! En bouche, cest trs herbac au dbut, mais a devient sucr en fin de bouche. La finale est bien longue. Cest excessivement bien balanc, et jen boirais plein.

Bierdimpfe (624) - Quebec, CANADA - APR 21, 2016
Veiled golden color with strong subtle activity and some detritus. Creamy white 2 finger head, lasting around 15 minutes, with good legs. Aromas of citrus and rich hops. Flavors of smoky pine, lemon, orange, grapes, coriander, clove, caramel, floral and herbal spices. Highly grassy and a little woody. A little sugary with more of a sharp citrus and herbal feel. Slick medium body with prickly carbonation. Medium strength finish of moderate length, ending with a sharp hoppy, citrus, and strong piney feel on the tongue. Overall a pretty good craft that is more like an IPA than the typical APA. Good freshness and a nice taste while overly piney with lots of diacetyl.
