I should have expected it. As soon as I popped the cap, it started gushing, but I acted quickly, only losing a dollop of foam. Only once I got it under control, and poured into the glass could I appreciate it. Dark Amber beer with a head just a shade or two away from white. Head was about three fingers initially, but was quick to drop. Not exactly clear, but definitely not opaque.
Aroma is a bit muted. Some general ale fruitiness comes out, but other than that I'm not quite sure.
Flavor is strong malt flavor at first, sweet and a little bready. Followed by a good amount of mouth watering fruits. Cherry, berries, and I even detect a bit of peach. Not bad at all. Some alcohol is present, but not as much as I expected. Caramel flavors are here as well.
The body leans toward thin. The carbonation however, is dialed in perfectly. On the high side, it seems to carry the flavor well, and make the drink refreshing.
A tasty beer, and one I would like to drink more of. It seems like there may be more going on than my palate is aware of, but alas, my palate only develops so fast. Perhaps I'll review it again at a later date. Cheers.

13oz draft pour at bier markt mississauga
a: deep orange/amber hue with half a finger of head
s: huge banana and vanilla up front, great stuff. hints of maraschino cherries. alcohol is present
t: a melange of bananas, maraschino cherries, and vanilla to begin with. it's sweet all around but not offensively so. nice! but what i dislike here is the alcohol presence -- it's rather strong and makes the entire tasting feel medicinal. light spice on the back-end. dry finish
m: medium body, medium carbonation
o: this beer has a lovely aroma but the flavours are all ruined by the alcohol strength
Serving type: on-tap

Summer night in Sweden with a 750 ml bottle in the garden. This is love.
Do think the big bottle has much more taste and nose
If you want this and if you are in Scandinavia do make a stop in Denmark were the price is "very low" ~ 5 USD at most supermarkets.
