larsga (7375) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 27, 2016
Big offwhite lasting head. Clear orange body with carbonation. Fruity mealy orangey aroma with earthy notes. Sweetish resiny floral fruity taste with wooden heather and birch sap notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Dryish birch sap and resin taste with orangey earthy mealy notes. Nice, drinkable, kind of odd. (0.5l bottle, from Bambalyne, Vilnius.)

Malonus kvapas, ruda neskaidri spalva, nedidelė puta. Skonis: įdomus, bet tikrai ne pats mėgstamiausias..

mzaar (2991) - Varberg, SWEDEN - DEC 15, 2012
This bottle has a best before date at 6/12-12, and is number 315 in a series of experimental beers from the Taura Brewery. So how was the experiment? Well, not bad at all actually. The colour is honey and the foam is lively white. Honey is distinct in aroma, but there is also some caramell and fruitness. Taste is sour, real sour, from citrus and gooseberry. Very nice. Also to be found in taste: honey and green apples. Some bitterness in the finish.
