Bottle enjoyed at homethellgren (1164) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 12, 2017
Copper, some haze, big white head. Smell of spicy and fruity yeast esters, clove, cardemomme, pepper, light malts. Light sweet, quite spicy, alot of cardemomme and clove, nice fruity flavors, bone dry. Quite easy drinker, light malts, moderate bitter, spicy tail. Excellent
0.75 l bottle @ Stadin Panimo, Helsinki. Appearance is golden with big head, like champagne. Taste is obviously not hoppy but spicy. Quite dry actually, but still easy to drink. Interesting. larsga (7675) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2016
Big white lasting head. Hazy yellow body. Funky wooden tropical fruit aroma with mealy milky caramel notes. Somewhat over-ripe. Dry-sweet resiny milky tropical fruit taste with caramelly notes. Mid-bodied. Fizzy mouthfeel. Dryish fruity herbal aftertaste with wooden spicy notes. Interesting and unusual, but I’m not sure how successful it is. (0.75l bottle, from wine monopoly somewhere.)

Had as Posca Rustica. Pours clear golden with a fairly thick eggshell head. Aroma offers pomme, citrus and fresh malt notes. Flavor delivers fruity and malty notes, average but more than palatable. Mouthfeel has decent body and fizz, and an apple finish. Nice all around. zenkis (1079) - Ogre, LATVIA - NOV 12, 2016
Thanks for suggestion to Sergejs from Alus Celle,

Pours velvet-yellow with white huge, thick-rocky foam. Aroma is... complex already, notes of flowers, malt/caramel sweetness, coriander, yeasty-friuty esters - just wonderfull. Flavor also is deep and complex with seems even more adjuncts, I even caught some sour notes, but I must re-test this to be sure. Taste is sweet, light bitter with slightly powdery dry finish. Almost full body, thick texture, high carbo. Liked!
Bottle, 750 ml from Svijet Piva. Shared with JFK10000. Pours hazy yellow with average white head. Malty, some fruity notes, spicy, yeasty, moderate sweetness. Creamy, soft carbonation. Medium bodied. Moebbels (835) - FINLAND - SEP 23, 2016
A fairly clear yellow beer with a large, frothy white head. Nose has mildly sour funky notes with citrus, barnyard and pomegranate. Taste is quite dry with a nice ever so mild sourness that leads to a softly bitter finish. Lively carbonation and quite light palate with very well hidden alcohol. Excellently balanxed easy drinking beer. Finwe (438) - Grankulla, FINLAND - SEP 23, 2016
750 ml bottle @ Stadin panimobaari, Helsinki. Pours clear golden yellow (sedimentary yeast not mixed in) with a white head. The aroma is dominated by sweetish floral notes and hints of acidity. Somewhat sour flavour with floral/fruity esters. The finish is quite sweet. Medium carbonation. A fine example on excellent beer brewed without hops. ads135 (5207) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - SEP 18, 2016
A really special beer brewed without hops. Tastes like a spicier than usual tripel. Tried with Jess at Avoli on our anniversary in 2016. tfredvik (2074) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 28, 2016
Crystal clear golden body with a small, frothy, off-white, short-lived head that doesn’t leave much lacing. Rather strong aroma of generic fruit, pale malt and some spices. Moderate flavour of Belgian yeast, generic fruits and spices. Light sweet and moderate bitter taste. Mid-bodied, dry and moderate carbonation. An ok beer, but I had expected something more special, with more emphasis on the spices.
