Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. Hazy golden coloured with a sweet earthy and floral, soapy red fruity flavour (junpiers?) with a smoky incense flavour to finish. TEJA (3141) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2012
Draught at Monks STHLM bar.
Nice long off white head. Solid golden color. Big aroma of juniper berries but not overpowering. Juniper taste and also some fruit. Nice to heavy food. Svesse (8694) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 28, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2016 (Bottle, Stockholm Beer Festival, 29 Sep 2012) Golden colour with brief, white head. Fruity, spicy nose with notes of juniper berries and juniper twigs, slightly perfumy. Malty, spicy taste with juniper berries, bread and a fresh grassy bitterness. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. A bit different, but would probably work fine with my father’s juniper smoked trout. Quite nice. Rerate: (Bottle, 23 Jan 2016) Golden amber colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, spicy nose with notes of orange, toast, apricots, grapefruit and juniper berries. Malty, slightly fruity taste with bread, apricots, juniper berries, a touch of juniper wood and a gentle citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, mainly dry. Tasty, with a balanced juniper character. Quite nice. (Same figures as the original rating.) olsvammel (7257) - Örebro, SWEDEN - OCT 19, 2012
Sample at SBWF 2012. Smell of hops, citrus, juniper and a peppery aroma. Similar taste with a peppery finish. Better then expected, nice mix between the juniper and the hops. oh6gdx (26488) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 10, 2012

Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is butter scotch, some herbs, sweet malts, mild juniper as well as some grassyness. Flavour is fruity, woodem floral, herbal and mildly buttery with some slight herbal notes.
Bottled, thanks SaintMatty! Clear deep golden, mid size, firm head. Aroma of grapefruit and juniper. Sweetish and fruity with medium body and well rounded mouthfeel. Plenty of juniper berries, some butter. Mid bitter finish. hirigalzkar (3231) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2012
Sample @ SBWF. Very spicy. Too spicy in my opinion. It’s almost hard to find a beer behind all the spices... Not bad tasting tough. finol (3453) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle at SBWF.
Aroma of citrus, juniper and bitter orange.
Refreshing brew with citrus and wooden tanins. Benzai (16311) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2012
Bottle (marked 371) [from trade with SaintMatty] @ home shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear golden color, small off-white head that diminishes quickly. Smell malts and herbs or spices like rosemary and something else. Taste malts, lightly hops but also again herbs or spices like rosemary and something else I can’t quite put my finger on. Low to medium carbo, low to medium body. DutchDrebus (6080) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - SEP 6, 2012
Bottle @ benzai. Clear, very pale yellow with a decent white head. Smells malts, beans, old. Not that nice. Tastes like the berries, fruity, bit soapy, flattish. Thin body, fizzy carbo, bit watery.
