One day. One brewery. Seven thousand co-creators. Two hundred brewers. The result? Electric India. This beer is the bastard love child of the craft beer revolution.
An unholy union between a Belgian Saison and an India Pale Ale; democratically brewed by our very own Equity for Punks shareholders.
Electric India is a hoppy saison brewed with fresh orange peel, lashings of heather honey, crushed black pepper corns and enthusiastically hopped with mountains of amarillo and nelson sauvin.
A beer for the people, by the people direct from the craft beer republic of BrewDog.

I really enjoy a good saison, but this one was too bland for me. Faint aroma, distant black pepper and even the hops were subtle (and that’s saying a lot for a BD beer). I don’t know, the premise sounds really creative and the beer wasn’t bad, but definitely a disappointment.

In bottle. Floral and yeasty. Remains tasty till the very end. A great summer beer on the patio.

Bottle 33cl from Bierhall De Konink, @ home. A very belgian saison, a bit hoppier than usual. Easy to drink.

jonas (5996) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - APR 1, 2015
Bottle. Light hazy golden, low offwhite foam. Nice kumquat hoppy aroma, light spice. Medium light body, mellow mouthfeel. Peppery entry, fruity notes, both hops peek through, grass and pine dry finish, light fruity aftertaste. Pleasnt enough, but it seems like any sweet and fruity beer gets called a saison these days.

nihtila (1290) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 25, 2015
16.11.2013. Voimakas sitrustuoksu, vehnäinen, yrttinen. Maussa sitrusta, belgihiivaa, happamuutta. Hieman erikoinen mutta varsin tasapainoinen. Jotain vehnäolutmaisuutta, enemmän sitrusta, jotain muuta.

Maakun (1156) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle at Delirium Amsterdam. Clear golden with small white head. Tangerine, grapes, pineapple, white pepper and very doughy. Medium sweet with herbal bitter finish. Medium bodied with light feel at the end. Nice.

Opaque light gold, medium white head. Sour farmyard with hoppy notes. Soursweet, hay, farmyard with fruity hoppy notes. Finishes lightly bitter and slightly sour. Good!

Foffern (1381) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAR 17, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a clear, dark straw color and big, white head that fades fast. Aroma of grass, Belgian yeast, lemon and spices. The flavor follows up with more pepper and citrus. Has a slick mouth feel, and balanced bitterness. A fresh, fruity and nicely spiced saison.
