Iceland

StedjaIn looks, we’re confronted here with a light brown beverage, which by the looks of it contains close to no carbonization. The node is… HORRIBLE! At first at least, that is. There’s some old Apple juice/molten berries in here, infused with a tad of honey. Tastewise, it’s a completely different story; it’s got hints of liqourice, and a hard-to-describe fruityness. Still some honey in it. The aftertaste evolves into more sweet landscapes. Interesting is my conclusion with this awkard Joe.

Hailing from Island, we’re faced with something that smells of lager. When drinking, it starts off in the same vein, but transforms by quickly adding up with a sense of coffee. There is an interesting, broad variety in the taste, which «sneaks» onto some kind of a sour, bitter direction towards the end.
