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

Bov (9429) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUL 28, 2014
from la Mise en Bière - hazy golden-orange beer with a long lasting foam; fruity estery nose actually more melon and grapefruit than banana; full-bodied, fizzy and lively, sweet and fairly tart and acidic; quite dry and long fruity and spicy finish - luckily pretty different than your standard bavarian weizen

Calisky (601) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JUL 26, 2014
Couleur orangée trouble, bonne mousse blanche. Nez malt toasté, notes légères bananes, paille et levures. Gout de levures, fort houblon, notes alcool, fruité. Forte amertume en fin de bouche. Un peu puissante pour une hefeweizen... Et amertume pas si bonne que ca

Christian (11054) - Odense, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2014
On tap at Christian Firtal. Hazy golden with a lasting white head. Hoppy aroma with citrus and pine and a touch of banana. Sweetish hoppy and malty flavour with faint hints of Bavarian Weissbier. Decent bitter finish

Theydon_Bois (8118) - 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 (6272) - 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.
