COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Not sure what you just drank? Wheat beer? IPA? Yes, it is. This mysterious ale boasts aromas of tropical fruit, a playful bitter edge, and the body and mouthfeel of an American hefe. Big alcohol and rich white wheat make this unfiltered ale accessible to all types of pallets.

Idiosynkrasie (4466) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 21, 2014
650ml bottle. Minimally cloudy, orangey golden colour with small, thick, creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white head. Tropical fruity, hoppy aroma has notes of mango and orange, hints of bitter almond, marzipan, biscuit. Taste is bitter hoppy on biscuity malty basis, notes of bitter almond, marzipan, hints of orange flash up in between; lasting, slightly burning bitter and alcoholic finish, oily texture, soft palate, finepored carbonation. Like other Brash ales, bombastic, pretentious, overdone.

puboflyons (2343) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 11, 2014
From the 650 ml. bottle. Medium amber-orange color with a long lasting off-white head. Milky clarity. I thought this was an American Strong Ale because if I did not know better I would think I was trying a Barleywine. Lots of sweet, roasted malts on the nose. No alcohol burn and very little to no hop quality. Medium to full body. In some respects this has all the characteristics of a mellowed Barleywine but it is not quite there. No booze in the taste either. Not bad at all.

Hop_Hedonist (291) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 22, 2014
Very much a Belgian Ale from go to whoa - massive estery nose which carries to the palate with a huge far-too-sweet caramel malt base - completely OTT - I don’t know what they’re trying to achieve here and, as usual, these hybrid styles don’t work for me - I don’t like the upfront esters of Belgian Ales so this misses the mark for me immediately. More isn’t necessarily better. This was a freebee from the shop and I certainly won’t be buying it.
