The concept for our Single-Take Session Ale is this: a moderate gravity (11.7 P) Belgian-yeast fermented ale that enjoys lots of hop-flavor and hop-aroma character without exhibiting much hop-bitterness (only 20 IBUs). We want Single-Take to deliver a complex yet balanced flavor explosion that is bright and sprite and never fatiguing. A deft grist combination of floor-malted barley (Maris Otter and Bohemian Pilsner), wheat and rye provide the perfect stage upon which our whole hop actors (German Tettnanger, Czech Saaz, American Santiam and Amarillo) get to sparkle. Our Belgian yeast strain holds the entire flavor performance together with its firm, spicy and tart directorial oversight.

Bottle from Ottakringer shop. BBD 7.9.2015. Which was something like a month overdue when we bought it. Aroma exceptionally heavy lightstruck. Hazy orange colour. Weird mint tea notes in taste. Also lightstruck. My suggestion for Baird Brewery - take care where you distribute. I have had some very good beers brought to me from Japan by a friend (Dusan)

Idiosynkrasie (5327) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 12, 2015
330ml bottle. Slightly hazy, orangey golden colour with average to huge, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Fruity aroma has a peach note, some nectarine, floral hoppy overtones, a cautious herbal spicy yeasty touch with hints of white pepper, peppercress, mustard seed. Taste is minimally sweet and tart fruity, very explicit notes of peach, a touch of nectarine, dry hoppy counterpart, some yeasty spiciness; slightly watery. Sadly the richness of subtle flavours isn’t fully reproduced in taste.

Nicko (223) - Ashfield, AUSTRALIA - JUL 10, 2015
