12oz bottle in Tallinn, early bird is right, looks like someone poured a glass of fresh squeezed OJ with a little bit of white head. Nose at first has a nice orange juice note to it as well, some tangerine too, green grasses, a little soap. Flavor is similarly quite nice, fresh citrus, grass, some straw, white pepper. There's an astringent pithiness late that knocks this down to just "good".

Pours nice hazy yellow, white foam that remains for a bit. Fresh fruity nose, some orange mixed with pineapple, juicy and fresh. Taste has loads of fruity tropical hops, light bitterness, nice not-so-sweet fruity characteristics, they are making this beer very clean and super enjoyable. Light wheaty-yeasty NE character comes out in mid-taste. Very nice, fresh and drinkable hop juice, balance close to perfect. Bottle was a few months old - and it still tastes great!

kraddel (8901) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2017
pours hazy blonde, good to big white head. Smell is full, fruity, intense. Taste is sharp, bit bitter, very full, creamy fruiyness. very drinkable, smooth, not sharp and overcarbonated at all. very nice. In the style, but even as beer in general .

Sampled draft @ “Double Tap Takeover” at Beerlovers Bar. Weird hazy to murky brownish spoiled peach orange, off-white head. Pretty ugly looking NEIPA. Nose is nice onion hop but also weird thick milky base. Taste is too milky lactose & spoiled cloudberry jam with murky malt, tropical hop heavy with onion hop,… Super murky milky malt base. Hop is nice but the base is weird & murky, no coherence, not terrible but quite a mess, one would expect better from a Lervig collab but than again Pühaste didn’t really impress me.

Looks like super hazy peach juice. Thin head on the rim. Aroma is pomelo, pineapple, and lemon. Taste is pineapple and lemon with a good hoppy bite and some spice.

suurjuust (3767) - ESTONIA - AUG 13, 2017
330ml bottle. Cloudy, juicy, soft and citric. Soft mouthfeel, easy drinkability. A nice session neipa, sneipa.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2017 Rerate: 330ml bottle (Puhaste Brewery, Tartu) (6:3:7:4:13=3.3)
Slightly messy fruity hop aroma, some slight starchiness in the pale malts. Not quite as cloudy as some, but certainly fashionably cloudy, pale wheaty orange, brief head. Fullish palate, but refreshing. Pleasant balanced light malts, and fruity hops, cleaner than the aroma. Easy drinker. Lacks a bite in the finish.
Rerate of: Tap (Beerfox, Riga) (5:2:5:3:14=2.9)
Fashionably cloudy orange. Fruit juce in the aroma (peach mainly), and that’s about it. In the mouth, it’s starchy. Dry and a bit rough. Still, not proper bad. But doesn’t stand out amongst the already over-saturated pale ale landscape at all.

Kauge (2126) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 11, 2017
Bottle from Uba ja Humal (€ 3.10). Batch 40. BB 14.03.2018. Misty light orange or whatever. Head brief, somewhat lacing, off-white. Fruit cakey aroma, somewhat astringent, white grapes. Not familiar with Azacca but NS and Mosaic are there. Tastes bittersweet and mildly sour, very fruity but also a bit bland and light. Very fine active carbonation to go with a kind of medium plus body. Dry finish. Will let it warm for a while, hope it opens up some more. Instead, gets a bit waxy. Doesn’t quite reach the level of superiness when I had it on tap a couple weeks ago. Still very good though.
