Ilguciema Kvass
Plastic bottle unpoured. Scent is fairly standard Kvass and some herbal properties. Taste is consistent with caramelised brown sugar. Quite light. Good.

BBE 05.05.2017. Punertava väri, olematon mutta viipyvä vaahto. Tuoksussa sulaa voita, uusia perunoita? Pistävyyttä myös. Suutuntuma täysin mehua, karvaahkoa, oluesta ei tietoakaan. Juotavaa, ei järin nautittavaa.

Ilgezeem Dzervenu
Draft from Folkklubs Ala, Rīga. Reddish brown, with a pinkish film of head. You can smell the cranberry and the honey, and also plastic, vanilla extract and cheap chocolate. The taste is sweet, oh so sweet, I can taste that there’s a lot of cranberry juice in this but it doesn’t help. Taste like some sort of artificial honey spread, or golden syrup with added sugar. Finish is short to medium, and the carbonation is well-balanced. Other than that it can get to fuck.

Ilguciema Kvass
33cl bottle at the Egle open-air cafe. Reddish-brown, clear and flat. Rye grain smell with that sour spicy bready smell you get with kvass. Tastes sweeter than I’d hoped, but not as sweet as some kvass can get. There’s a nice souring balance leading into the finish. Caraway and vegetal notes in the aftertaste. Not bad.

Ilgezeem Medalus Upenu
Draft from Folkklubs Ala, Rīga. Mid to dark purplish blue, and thin. Almost no head. Smells ok, a trifle plasticky but the honeyed notes and fruit are subtle. Taste is actually all right. Overly sweet of course but not quite sickly. I can drink this. Long fruity finish with berry and candy sugar on the aftertaste. One-dimensional but drinkable.

As Medalus Originalis.
Bottle. Clear copper body, small off-white head. Aroma of honey, meed, bread, bisquits. Taste is strongly sweet, oversweeted actually. Bread crust, meed, prunes, dryed fruits, a bit artifical. Light to medium body, average carbonation.
Something between meed, kwass and honey liqueur. Not bad, drinkable.

Ilgezeem Medalus Kiršu
Bottle as "Tanheiser Kraftbeer Cherry" (5,5%) - this must probably be the same stuff. Dark red/brown body, darkish head. Aroma has cherry jam and bready kvass. Very sweet cloying taste with cherry juice in a dark kvass-like beer. Too sweet and cloying. Has the sugary body of a fortified cherry wine without the booze, which makes it quite pointless.

Ilguciema Kvass
50cl bottle from a supermarket somewhere in Latvia. Pours clear brown with a lightly reddish hue and no head to speak of in the end. Malty, bready and sugary aroma with notes of dark, dried fruits. Sweet and bready with some acidty. Farily thin and watery and not the best kvass I’ve tried, but drinkable enough.

This beer was labelled as ’Tanheister Extra’ at the 2016 International Green Week festival in Berlin. Thanks to FatPhil and Marduk for finding it’s ’regular Latvian name’ just for me: I had better write something nice about it I suppose! Well it came in a lovely glass, the deposit was almost as much as the beer price. Pale old gold in colour, fading white head on this draught offering. Malts rule the aroma and taste, semi-sweet with a grainy feel throughout. Some bitterness below the surface and overall not bad.

Dark red beer, almost no head to speak of. Nose is heaping of diacetyl, cranberry juice, cherry juice. Flavor is sweet cherry juice, sugar, less diacetyl than the nose but it’s still annoyingly there. Finish is surprisingly sour with cherries. This would be tolerable if it weren’t for the diacetyl.
