3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0,75cl PET bb02/2017, sampled 03/2017, merci Mirka! - This one might have slightly turned in transit, but is still drinkable with enough oddness to hold the attention: it’s landed somewhere between a dusty Weizenbock and a harsh geuze, both pepped behind the scenes of their respective terroir brown bars with a shot of genever. - - Expectedly no-nonsense in the looks dpt, beige dough with lots of UFOs and trub. - Lovely doughy bread flavours and most of that banana sweetness devoured by lacto, not a bad thing overall. Sweet bread, dry heather honey, juniper sneaking in from the back and staying around. The wild dimension here is very shrubby, else hard to place and only partly superseded by the new lacto sourness. Ergo: enjoyed half a bottle, used the other half to spice up & make more vivid beers that were too sweet...Glad to have finally tried this.

ELS 1/17, thanks rosenbergh: quite a nice, brown semi-turbid appearance with some yeast on the bottom of the bottle. Nose is heavy clove phenols and banana-centred esters in a pleasant mixture. Mouthfeel is oily and well carbonated, a litttle too sugar-sweet for my taste. Quite filling and full bodied with a finish of fusel alcohol and isoamylacetate. All in all very pleasant experience if you are looking for phenols, esters and sweetness. I like it.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Plastic bottle from Alko. Pours slight cloudy brown and no head. Taste is very sweet with Christmas herbs, cardamom, cinnamon and cloves. Mouthfeel like a very old barley wine without carbonation. Very strange taste at first but more likeable after a while.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate yeast, apple, fruit, spice/clove, and hints of bubblegum. It pours a cloudy dark orange with a minimal off-white head that is really just a few stray bubbles. The flavor starts moderate fruity yeast and light apple. There are some hints of bubblegum in the middle. The finish has some lightly sour citrus, juniper, and spice/juniper. It’s medium bodied with minimal carbonation and almost flat mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: OCT 14, 2016 At St Urho’s pub. Helsinki. Reddish-brown, flat and cloudy. Sweet sugary smell: berries, wood, a touch of soy sauce. The sweetness of the taste is fairly quickly dampened by a fruity-vinegary sour. Notes of rye bread, overripe papaya and crabapple. Finish is flat. I know it is the style but the combination of cold, flat and watery doesn’t sit so well in the mouth. The ABV is evident in the finish and aftertaste. Final verdict: it isn’t the best drink I’m likely to have (even today), but its certainly interesting and overall good.
