Very good innovation(?) to use spruce sprout (?) Delicious beer from Finland. Excellent

BeerBaboon (2125) - FINLAND - NOV 4, 2017
Pours dark amber with white head. Aroma is malty and pine. Flavour is grainy and notes of pine. Thin stuff.

humpah (339) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - SEP 26, 2017
0,33l bottle shared. Flavor of malts, sweetness, earthy notes, spruce sprout. A bit light body. Sweet peculiar taste, nothing what I have had before, spruce sprout gives a bit spicy feeling to it.

mviljamaa (189) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - JUL 6, 2017
Pours with little head. Color is dark mead. Aroma has forest and meady notes (yeast, raisin). Palate is quite well balanced. Taste is a bit watery, but fresh and tastes like forest moss smells. Additionally sweet maltiness and slight bitter hoppiness. It’s a surprisingly tame and conventional beer.

SloaneRanger (59) - - JUL 4, 2017
Punertavanruskea väriltään. Tuoksu on hieman erikoinen, selvästi karamellinen, ehkä vähän tunkkainen. Maultaan edelleen makea, lopuksi tulee jotenkin salmiakkinen vivahde. Kokonaisuus on vetinen. Kunnioitettava yritys tehdä kuusenkerkällä vähän erilaisempi olut, mutta mitään selvää metsäisyyttä on hankala löytää ja vetisyys ei ainakaan omaan mieleen täysin ole.

vainamo (1) - Missouri, USA - MAR 10, 2017 does not count
Pours reddish-brown, but this beer is fairly light taste-wise. Though I could taste it, this beer’s signature spruce flavor probably should have been stronger. Not a bad beer for the price. This would definitely be a summer beer for me.

rostetti (385) - Oulu, FINLAND - NOV 20, 2016
Bottle. Pours dark amber with white head. Aroma has caramel mostly. Taste also has caramel, some of that spruce sprout too, fizzy. Ok, but nothing special really.

mice (1043) - FINLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Punertavanruskea olut. Hyvin niukasti vaahtoa, ei kerää ulkonäköpisteitä. Tuoksu aika mieto, mutta selvästi karamellinen. Maku on aika jännä. Samaan aikaan havaittavissa niin karamellia ja havuisuutta kuin keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma sekä toisaalta yllättävän vetinen kokonaisuuskin. Jälkimaussa hieman katkeroa sekä karamellisuutta ja kaipa tämä on sitä kuusenkerkkää. Ihan kiva uutuus ja hienoa, että saadaan taas uusi pienpanimo Suomen olutkartalle; toivottavasti pysyvästi. Ei tämä kuitenkaan kalliin (n.5€) hintansa arvoinen olut ollut, joten jää kertaostokseksi.

77ships (11036) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2015
Sampled bottled @ Fête de la Bière Finlandaise. Brown ale with spruce if I remember correctly. Dark brown amber with only some tanned bubbles on the side. Nose is cold iron & honey, moldy rug, sugar, very watery with lots of mold. Taste is weirdly watery, light peat (wth?) moldy & watery candy, tar, charcoal, heavily herbal, burned herbs, huge mold. Weak carbonation, strongly watery. All these weird flavoures, peat, huge mold, burned herbs & a very watery body on top. Nope, nice attempt at doing something different but not a success.

3.4
RexTalionis (3798) - FINLAND - AUG 7, 2015
Darker amber in color with tin off-white head. Sweet butterscotch, grainy notes in aroma. Malty and some sweeter notes in taste. Dark fudge, little bit roasted and something from the green meadow in taste. Lot better than expected. Refreshing in a way as well.

2.9
panzerwolf (358) - FINLAND - JUL 18, 2015
Taste of spruce and grass. Just a very mild bitterness, mixing with a very brief sweetness, which for me is good because I prefer bitter over sweet. A very subtle taste, overall, that could use a little bit more bite.
