Bottle. Pours hazy amber with small white head. Aroma: sweet and sour, malty, yeasty, bread, weak banana. Taste: sweet and sourish, yeasty, like bread in the middle when its a bit raw, like a well balanced homebrew at some village. Medium body. Sweet finish. Nice.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
My Bottom Line:
Plentiful bread flavors, from both cereals and yeast, float within this rough brew.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the murky dark beige.
-Flavor profile lacks structure and clarity.
-Drinkability is rather low.
-This, in a way, is reminiscent of some Seto Olu. But not the best examples, of course.
-Fruity edges are observed here and there.

Tap in Ku-Kuu, Saaremaa. Copper brown hazy ale with small white head. Aroma is sweet bread and yeast. Taste is bready malt and mild. Under medium palate. Like home brewed ’kotikalja’.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pendipäev 15. Hazy brown, almost no head. Earthy-farm aroma. Tastes very sour with some bread notes. Carbonation goes down fast and after that feels flat. Quite disappointing to be honest, because I remember the first batch of Rukkiõlu was pretty ok or at least drinkable.

@ De Tolly. Aroma light, feels some apples and soured milk. Foam white but virtually none. Beer seems muddy brown. Taste is sour. Reminds me homemade beer. Carbonation: lively.
