The colour is pale gold, the liquid is somewhat hazy. The finger thick head is white and airy; it disappears quickly leaving some lacing on the glass.

The smell is rather peculiar with sweet notes of tree sap, rhubarb and unripe raspberries. Floral notes in the background.

The tree sap comes back in the taste as well as light clean bitterness, candy-like sweetness and some perfume. Medium body. The aftertaste is a bit tart with tree-sap, spices (nutmeg, thyme) and slowly growing mild bitterness. Birch soda and bitter herbs in the finish.

The carbonation is medium strong. The mid-size bubbles are ling-lived and fresh. The liquid is semi-smooth.

An interesting take on the session IPA style with just enough of birch leave flavours to make it interesting yet highly drinkable.

Straw yellow and a little hazy. Fast dissipating foam, fine lace left quite soon.
Smells of birch and caramel.
Crisp and simple bitterness disappears in few seconds and almost only thing that's left is huge hit of fresh birch aroma.
Can't really feel the malt, quite dry and it's good in this beer, otherwise it would take away the first note from birch.

Very nice!
