Bottle from Systembolaget. Very sharp initial taste. Once your buds get used to it, it’s quite alright. Ethereal (2471) - Los Angeles, California, USA - AUG 16, 2010

UPDATED: AUG 15, 2010 500ml bottle picked up at Systembolaget Passagen in Stockholm and very much enjoyed on my hotel room after a long journey by train from Stockholm to Malmö. Clear, golden brown in body appearance. Mostly diminishing off-white head, leaving spotty lacing behind. Floral-fruity aroma with hints of sweet malts. Smooth tropical fruits to my taste buds with pine needles and dried fruits coming through. Long-lived, bittersweet tail, 30.07.2010. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 10, 2010

Bottle. A hazy dark golden beer with a finger-thick off-white head. Fruity nose, very fruity actually, with tropical fruits, grapefruiit and some green pine cones. Bitter and fruity flavor, good bitterness! Pine cones and some malty sweetness too. Medium to full body. Long, bitter finish with lots of fruityness and some sweetness. A refreshing, quenching and tasteful beer I’d like to drink again. 100806 planky84 (3493) - Lee, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2010
