tfredvik (1762) - Oslo, NORWAY - APR 18, 2013
UPDATED: APR 28, 2013 From the EBU, EBC and hop list on the label I was quite certain that this was an american IPA, but the first smell reveals that this obviously isn’t the case. The aroma is strong with both a sweet and an acidic touch, but what is more interesting are the wild notes. The aroma is quite yeasty, and the yeast is an interesting and pleasant mix of Belgian yeast and wild yeast, giving notes of both barnyard and sweet fruits. I also get spices and citrus, but I had expected even stronger citric notes and regular IPA notes from the US hops. When it comes to the looks this is an ugly bastard. As soon as I opened the bottle the murky medium yellow liquid, mixed with dirty foam, gushes out of the bottle. In the glass the body is utterly opaque. The off-white head (with its light-brown sediment-infested patches) is long-lived and laces the glass excellently. The taste is light sweet, light acidic, light sour and moderate to heavy bitter. Wow, that’s an unusual combination! The flavours are quite strong with wild barnyard notes, fruits, spices, herbs and sweet honey in the aftertaste that competes with the firm bitterness. Medium body, moderate dry texture and moderate to soft carbonation. A complex, fun, interesting and actually quite enjoyable experiment.
[33 cl bottle, enjoyed 16 months before BB date, from Vinmonopolet Vika, Oslo]

Bouteille 330 ml. Robe orangée, épais collet blanc qui diminue assez rapidement. Arôme: houblon, malt, plus un superbe bouquet d’agrumes (pamplemousse, orange, citron). Quelques touches florales. Amertume bien dosée. Finale sèche, amertume citronnée. Bonne carbonatation. Mince en bouche. Rafraîchissante et plaisante. Ha oui, et attention à l’ouverture...

Bart (2938) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 16, 2013
33cl Bottle, tasted during Scotland trip with Robin and Stefaan. Complete gusher. Hazy dark blond coloured beer with a small white head. Light hoppy hinted aroma with a medium to fully banana touch. Medium to full palate. Finish is bitter fruity yeasty hinted. Lost the majority of the content, completely mixed with the yeast sampler left.

Gusher (maybe because it was transported same day), head subsides to a small film of white, leaving plenty of lacing. Aroma is heavy fruity, loads of grass, clove and some citrus. Taste also has some citrusy notes along with the yeast-induced fruityness. Medium body and carbonation, and a rather dry finish.
