Colour of applejuice with few foam. Aroma of apple, nice balance between sweetness and acidity. Long lasting aftertaste of acidity and apple. An interesting and original beer.
From the usual distinguishable plastic bottle. This beer is not easy to get, even in Helsinki, but thanks to the helpful staff in Alko I managed to get my hands on this special stuff. Pours a cloudy hazelnut colour with no head at all and carbonation of a flat soda drink. A lovely and strong, sweet aroma of toffee, ripe banana, bread and butter pudding and dark fruits all of which are reflected in the ultra sweet taste. It should be drunk like a strong Belgian beer or even a glass of wine to fully appreciate it and according to the Alko guy treat it like milk: stored in the fridge and once opened drink within 3 or so days. You'll either love it or hate it but you can't ignore it! AndySnow (8306) - Huddinge, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2017

RBESG 2017, sampled on July 23, 2017 @ Villi Wäinö, Helsinki. pours cloudy, looks like a rye bread soup I had in elementary school. Brown light foam. Nose is fruity, some berries there and overall unbaked cake dough feel. Taste is intense, yeasty, berries and some beeswax, prunes. Quite enjoyable funky - yeasty stuff. Needs to be fresh to do its magic! anstei (2746) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - AUG 7, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2017 Plastic bottle from Alko. Pours hazy amber, despite taking care of the yeast residues. Aroma is juniper, berries, light fruit, sweetness, light booze. Body is quite heavy, sweet and acidic, only a little bitter. Candy and other sweets. Low carbonation. Warming boozy palate. Actually quite tasty, with well integrated alcohol. A lot more interesting than the regular Sahti. Grzesiek79 (4485) - Radom, POLAND - AUG 7, 2017

Wyglad Barwa kawowo-czekoladowa, zupelnei bez piany. Smak wyraznie zywiczno szyszkowy, gryka, kasza gryczana jalowiec, jagody dzikie, nieco cierpkosci zurawiny. Oleiste i rozgrzewajace. Fajne likierowe wrazenie. Bardzo fajna ciekawostka. kermis (14963) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2017
