Svesse (8357) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 25, 2009
(Draught at White Horse, Parson’s Green, London, 17 Apr 2009) Dark reddish amber colour with brief, white head. Fruity, malty nose with dark fruit, herbs and hints of plums. Fruity, malty taste with notes of crystal malts, plums and nuts. Medium body, low bitterness, fairly dry. A bit weird but defintely decent.

From tap at a bar opposite ONeal in Paris. Pours hazy orange with a collapsing white head. aroma is mild citric and malty. Light citric flavoured to a mild caramel malt base. light spiced and mild bitter into the finish. Light and delicate.

Bottle at Le Sous-Bock, Paris
The bottle kept spitting foam for 30 minutes; it pours a dark amber color, with a lot of small particles in it; it has obviously a very big head. The aroma is strange, it can be a mix of herbs and lemonade. Medium body structure, with some residual sweetness, but no special flavor. The Patxaran (whatever it is), may be detected in the aftertaste. Very ordinary, smooth, sweetish beer, with a strange touch.

thebeertourist (5189) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 17, 2007
From bottle at Le Sous-Bock, Paris. Hazy, burgundy with a good tan head. Fruity aroma with hints of spices. Refreshing prune flavours, balanced by bitter spices. Fizzy. Interesting and enjoyable.

brewed for the contract brewer Oldarki - hazy golden-amber colour with a nice firm foam; aroma of plum and yeast with a touch of alcohol; medium-bodied, rather sweet and with a hint of sourness; no bitterness and a gentle fruity finish - unusual and quite pleasant

A bit hoppy and sweet with something special that a can’t quite place. Not bad at all but no beer to drink more than 1 or 2.
