COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg and bottled, series
The unsung heroes, the foot soldiers of the revolution. We owe a huge debt to the billions of tiny yeast cells that work tirelessly to ferment sugars into alcohol and CO2. But yeast isn’t just here for the grunt work. Yeast has the power to change the flavour, aroma and complexion of your beer in an instant. This series is designed to showcase the impact different yeasts have on the same base beer.
This series of 4 beers gives the limelight to four totally different yeast strains: Belgian Trappist, Pilsen Lager, American Ale and Bavarian Weizen. All 4 beers have been brewed to the same ABV using a blend of Centennial and Amarillo hops and a backbone of Pale Ale, Munich and Cara Malts. Malts: Maris Otter, Crystal Malt, Caramalt
Hops: Centennial, Amarillo
Twist: Each beer is identical except for the different yeast used to ferment the beers creating 4 radically different beers from the same starting point

Theydon_Bois (7898) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUL 7, 2014
Keg at BD on da Bush, 01/07/14. Clear golden with a well appointed off white covering. Nose is pale malts, grain, light toffee, straw, faint banana. Taste picks up the pace a little more so than the aroma, caramel, wheaten bread, yeast esters, light vanilla, banana. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. So so hefe.

mcberko (5918) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 24, 2014
On tap at Brewdog Birmingham, pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out wheat, some orange fruitiness, and clove. Flavour brings out lots of clove upfront, some banana and dry hoppiness as well. A more abrasive wheat beer - as can be expected for Brewdog. Good stuff.

Aroma: Smelling of bread, banana, spices and yeast.
Appearance: A clouded amber colored beer. A off-white head with good lacing and good curtains.
Taste: Tasting bread, pear, spices, clove, apple peel and yeast.
Palate: Medium carbonation, a soft texture. A medium body with a dry finish.
Overall: A bit unbalanced towards spicyness without hop.
Note: Bottle 330 ml at home. Reviewed 2014-06-20.

Litt uklar lys kobberfarge med et kremet skum som limte seg i glassveggen. Aroma av malt, karamell, frukt og gjær. Smaken følger aroma mye frukt med en fin bitterhet i avsluttningen

TET (1542) - FINLAND - MAY 17, 2014
A hazy, dark yellow beer with a medium and blond head. The nose is fruitfull and slightly tropical, yeast, light grain. Taste is fruitfull, mangos, light malts, slightly biscuity body. Medium bodied, fresh carbonation. This is not hefe. Fruitfull hops with biscuity malts. It’s very difficult to find the hefe-yeast.

unstablefable (224) - SCOTLAND - MAY 13, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy, mild carbonation with a thick white head, dark gold colour. Aroma is sweet banana sweet bit of yeasty funk & mellow spices. On the taste, is a little under whelming, but with a fairly unpleasant astringent ending. Holds a touch of black pepper spice.

Gurthnar (1504) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 7, 2014
Bottle. Aroma is weird and soapy, only light clove, most of the hops went away. Taste is much more weizeny, in balance with the hops. Spicy, some clove, peppery. Shows the yeast nicely, but overall the beer is not to my taste.
