Ruikt weer lekker hoppig, iets pittiger dan de andere drie maar niet heel veel anders.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of the four beers in this interesting Brewdog experiment, in which a fairly complex and hoppy beer is each time fermented with a different type of yeast. This one, like the others, bears a stable, snow white, moussy head and shows a deep orange blonde colour, but turned a bit more hazy than the others and had a kind of pinkish hue. Aroma much stronger than the others, delicately perfumed with rose petals, citrus peel, vanilla, white wine, kiwi, strawberries and grapefruit, apart from the biscuit and walnut tones from the malt. Taste reflects this, exotic fruits, utterly flowery, perfumey and ethereal, very citrussy, over the nutty and slightly toasted malt backbone; long, very floral, peppery and very citrussy hop finish. To me and the two other people tasting this, this stood out as the best and most complex of these four beers, but I do wonder if it indeed has exactly the same hop profile as the others...

Hazy amber color, average sized off white head. Medium body, average carbonation. Aroma of exotic fruits, citrus and a hint of pine. Medium sweet, light bitter taste. The best one from this yeast series, by far.

Ottima idea quella di tenere la base di una birra e cambiare il lievito. Questa America ale ne fa scaturire profumi più fruttati.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ BrewDog Shepherds Bush. Hazy golden brown. A thin cream-coloured skin of head hides and mega-lacing. Aroma has the farmyard earthiness of a sour, the spiciness of a wheat beer and the fruitiness of an amber session ale. What am I about to drink? says I. Taste is fruity sweet, with a hint of sour bitter at the end. A bit of a musty aftertaste. Odd and not an APA by normal definition, but you have to take these beers as you find them.
