Bottled. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel, while the flavor is plainly sweet malty. The body is thin.

33 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 07.03.2009raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - JUN 17, 2007
Aroma is somewhat sour with juniper, sorbus and bready malt. Flavour is odd with bready malt, sorbus, some juniper and floral notes. Quite odd but not bad anyway.
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2007 Looks good, smells horrible, tastes funky. Nose has some very unpleasant skunkiness, like butter gone bad. Taste has the same funkiness. I couldn’t get over the fact that it just smelled and tasted like a dated butter. Mouthfeel was pleasant and there were some underlaying goodness too, I just didn’t get there yet. Re-rate (original 1.6): The previous bottle must’ve been a bad one or my palate just wasn’t ready for it. Had another and I enjoyed it very much. There is some ryeish "skunkiness" to it, but overall feel is nicely fresh and balanced with a rye twist. It’s very fresh when cold, propably due to juniper, which is otherwise quite subtly present. Actually a very refreshing beer, if not a bit thin. I would like to see this with a bit more body. austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - JUN 28, 2008
Hazy amber, disappearing soapy head. Nose is juniper & wood in general, earth, little banana spiciness and caramel malts. Interesting sour, stomach acidy flavor, though without the noble lambic complexity. Earth and slight yeast with a little smoky, dry woody finish. Low carbonation. This one has changed totally from my last tasting, and it’s the strangest thing I’ve had in a while. ekstedt (6782) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2008
