Linnet (1625) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2016
Tart, yeasty, Green apples, hay, hay, grass, floral, lots of vinegar and barnyard, Golden colour, medium white head, lacing. Barrel aging evident, big tartness, mid-sweet, lightly bitter, funky yeast and acidity dominate, oaky notes softens it down and gives layers of complexity. Medium body, average carbonation, complex tart finish. Awesome.

Samuel214 (442) - SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2016
Flaska från SB. Provning med ölsällskapet. Halvdisig orange-gul vätska med tät vit skumkrona. Syrlig, bärig och lätt höig doft med fräsch humle. Något svår att ringa in. Halvtorr, bubblig kropp som är ganska lätt. Smaken inleds med återhållsam syra för att sedan ge plats åt hö, torrt gräs och stickig humle. Fräsch, lättdrucken och samtidigt smakrik.

Would buy again.
