2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Beers as "Kiljuva aurinko"
Hazy, murky yellow color, small white head, lace. Aroma of citrus, barnyard and fusels. Light bodied. Citrus-zesty, spicey (white pepper, coriander) flavor, but then again odd dry yeasty flavors plus some fusels. Basicly kind of odd witbier. Well, at least this is not their worst beer.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught @ 101 Beers, Tampere as "Kiljuva Aurinko".
Pours a hazy, unclear and murky yellow colour with a white lacy head. Aroma of tar, wheat and heavy caramel. Flavour of tar, biscuit, wheat, cardboard, yeast, caramel and some lemon zest. Really, really stuffy. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and high carbonation. Not refreshing at all, quite rough and again these disturbing notes ruin the show. Sort of a witbier, but then again not a witbier at all.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught @ 101 Beers, Tampere.
Pours very cloudy yellow color with a medium foamy head, looks almost like an orange juice. Aroma of lemon, herbs, mild barnyard notes and some orange peel. Flavour of lemon, herbs, mild vegetable notes and some spices. Could be a decent summer beverage without the off-flavors.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught @ Bar 101 Beers
Looks like orange juice. Aroma has lots of orange peel with some citrus and hints of wheat. Flavour is sourish, tart and somewhat odd with ash, some citron and cardboard- and vegetable-like savors. Tart finish. Drinkable, closer to a witbier than belgian blonde ale.
