Hmm...this beer seems to get quite an attention from Finland... 40 cl. bottle. Deep golden-orange colour with a white head, that disappears quickly. Fruity aroma with caramel malts, floral hops and sweet exotic fruits. Taste is light bitter with notes of sweet exotic fruits and butterscotch. Medium body with a creamy texture, lively carbonated. Medium length fruity finish. A very nice summer beer. However a few floral notes more would be nice. mikkopen (1191) - Guelph, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 21, 2012

Bottled 330ml (Alko, bottled 140212, BB 120213)Dermi (1193) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 7, 2012
Slightly hazy orange color, small steady white head. Herbal spruce aroma with some fruity notes. Light bodied. Flavor is quite similar to aroma: herbal, piney hoppyness, woody dry flavor in general with some fruityness. This feels quite lame for being quite strong, 5.6%. Perhaps works with food but as such a bit boring.
40 cl, bottled. Pours cloudy amber with a white head. Aroma: Fruits, grass, malt, biscuits. Taste: Moderately sweet, much noticeable bitterness. Palate: Medium body, above average carbonation. Pretty decent. Hermod (8220) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUN 6, 2012
