the aroma is fruity and hoppy with hints of grapefruit, spruce, mango, lichee, lemon peel and spicy herbs... the taste is fruity and herbal with notes of orange, tangerine, mango, spruce needles, key lime and spicy grasses... bitter, sweet and dry aftertaste... tricksta_p (5457) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - FEB 6, 2018
Bottle at Speciaalbier Café De Markies, Leeuwarden. Aroma is juicy fruity hops with citrus, tropical notes, and some oniony dankness. Flavour is mild sweetish with a medium bitterness. Body is almost medium. Nice sessionable NEIPA, very tasty. tiong (7823) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 29, 2017
330ml bottle from Uba ja Humal, Tallinn. Batch 40, BBE 14.03.18. Pours slightly hazy orange with a small head. Aroma of stingy fruits, orange peel, pineapple and mango. Taste is crisp, hoppy and tropical fruity with some pineapple, mango and citrus. Finish is fruity and crisp with hints of ripe tropical fruits, pine and citrus. Okay, but doesn't feel super fresh anymore. nimbleprop (9022) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - SEP 25, 2017
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". jinroh (2570) - ESTONIA - SEP 24, 2017
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!

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 . 77ships (11601) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2017
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. adamnowek (3602) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2017
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 (3897) - ESTONIA - AUG 13, 2017
330ml bottle. Cloudy, juicy, soft and citric. Soft mouthfeel, easy drinkability. A nice session neipa, sneipa. FatPhil (17492) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - AUG 12, 2017
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.
