Holmen1 (5842) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 19, 2013
Et interessant kjøp fra polet: lite futt når jeg åpnet flasken og foruroligende lite skum. Aroma av halvvisne blomster - dette lover ikke godt. Men smaken er heldigvis av en annen støpning, her er der einer (som vi ofte bruker i Holmens brygg), litt maltsødme og en skygge av humle (eller er det finsk badstusvette?). De 7,3 vitaminenhetene er gjemt langt inne i skogen. Et godt og annerledes øl, noe helt annet enn jeg ventet meg. Drikker gjerne denne igjen, og det skulle vært interessant å erfare fatversjonen i sisuomgivelser.

sunevdj (4084) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - MAR 14, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours a clear brown with a small off-white head. Sweet and malty with lots of caramel aromas. The juniper is especially noticeable towards the end, even though it is quite mellow. Hints of nuts. Medium bodied. Medium to soft carbonation. Sweet and bitter finish with more juniper.

esp0r (2867) - NORWAY - MAR 6, 2013
Bottle from Vika enjoyed at home
Pours brown with a small beige head with big bubbles. Smells of herbs, caramel, hints of roast and malts. Taste is moderate sweet, a strange mouthfeel made by some bitter herbs that tastes of green leaves and soil and bitter malts that i don’t like. This is not what i’m looking for in a beer

daje (4341) - NORWAY - MAR 4, 2013
Tap at Crowbar, december 14th 2012. Dark brown body, thin offwhite head. Aroma of ginger, honey, flowery hops. Taste of peppers, caramel, milk chocolate and juniper. Interesting taste, nicely blended. A bit light bitterness, overshadowed by sweetness. Aftertaste of malt, juniper and a bit smoke. Overall an enjoyable beer.

Brandman (2942) - Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2013
Amber body offwhite head. Aroma has caramelly malt, sweet rye, spices and nuts. Quite easy, I don’t get the juniper. Alcohol is well hidden. Good, but this doesn’t interest me much.

Looks reddish dark brown, clear almost transparent. Smell is dark fruits, prunes and alcohol. Strong sweet juniper taste that is well balanced with hops:) sweet, taste of sap, in one with nature. An odd ball, but suprisingly nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
