Glouglouburp (5936) - Montreal, Quebec, - OCT 3, 2012
In short: A pleasant semi-sweet, yeasty, fruity, slightly spicy blonde ale. Good.
How: From a bottle at Mondial De La Bière 2012
The look: Cloudy yellow-blond body topped by a medium white head with medium retention
In long: Nose is bright with some kind of spiced mandarine cocktail over a bed of flowers, very aromatic stuff here. Taste is like chewing on a mix bag of dried fruits (dried little orange cubes, dried slices of bananas, dried apricots, more…), some coriander-ish and ginger-ish spiciness, honeyed hay, dusty yeast, grassy and floral hops. Strong yeast presence. Yellowed grass in the finish almost dry out the beer. Pleasant big fluffy mouthfeel with a lively carbonation. A bit too sweet for my dryness-seeking palate but I found it nonetheless enjoyable. Got a generous 6oz sample and can easily imagine myself drinking a lot more of this. Another beer I had at Mondial 2012, I was using all my lunch breaks from work every day to go to Mondial and drink beer instead of having lunch, but don’t you dare calling people like me a drunk (us drunks really hate that).

elbernays (391) - Dublin, IRELAND - JUL 11, 2014
Bottle at home. Recommended by Guy in the Blackrock cellar. Pours clearish amber with lasting foam white head. Looks great. Aroma is peach, orange, yeast, bread, orange rind, a chemical background. Light malt base- toast, hay, woodchip which gives way to a strong pithy bitterness which dries the mouth and is long lasting. A good bit of carbonation which you may expect with style. Plenty going on here and a nice pils.

Bottle, 750 ml from Mas Plenum. Pours hazy golden with white head. Citrus hoppy aroma. Citrus and pine hoppy flavor with nice bitterness. Balanced. Tastes like IPA.

colore dorato intenso e luppolo in ogni dove!una bestia difficile da domare al palato. Sublime. Se piace il luppolo questo è un vero trionfo. C’e chi dice che Sam abbia lanciato alla ceca luppoli nel mosto, ma a quanto pare ha fatto centro in ogni lancio. Complimenti!

Poured a hazy golden with a lively head with great lacing. Moderately hoppy in the mouth, but not annoying.

Imperial pilsners are always strange animals. There isn’t much that’s basic about this lager. Medium bodied, notes of honey, pine, orange, and tropical fruit. Bready backbone. Tried at Churchkey in 2014.

From first sight the bottle drew me in. I was aware already this was a collaboration beer and was intrigued to try. Enjoyed the hoppy flavour. I would try this again.

CelticJohnny (73) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Poured into Pilsner glass, cloudy light brown with some white head. Smells sweet like pineapple and apple juice with hops. Tasted kind of weird like rubber bands, I don't know why. It finished with good bitterness. Creamy and medium mouthfeel. I think I might of had a infected beer. Damn! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
