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

ferencmato (47) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle. Clear golden color with white head. Aroma is bread, honey, toffee. Taste is sweet and bitter, quite nice balance, but that’s it...nothing else to put finger on (for me at least). In my opinion, this one is the most indifferent and forgetable of the "unleash" 4-pack.

TheCametron (1877) - CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 14, 2013
.Bottle. Tasted alongside the other 3. Pours deep gold and clear with an initially large White head that quickly subsides.Light banana/clove Belgian aroma. The body is more lagery. It’s probably the yeast least suited to the malt profile. The concept of the ’unleash’ series is far more interesting than this the sum of its parts. I’m glad I had them all at the same time

spacecube (974) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 10, 2013
330 ml bottle, pours golden brown, white head. Aroma herby and banana, citrus hop there in the background. Was hoping this would be like one of those great Belgian style IPAs, perhaps needs more in the dry hop

WeissGary (285) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - DEC 10, 2013

sputnikus (96) - Brno, CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours amber liquid with solid white head. Aroma is really yeasty, with a hint of spices and malts. Taste is honey sweet with some bitterness. Light body, creamy texture, lively carbonation, Short bready finish. If you wanna belgian ale, this may not be the one. Still interesting for comparision with the rest of the series.

Ktwse (2241) - SWEDEN - DEC 8, 2013
Pours clear amber, low white head. Aroma of yeast, light spices, light dough. Taste is almost like a bitter, not very trappist like... Light bready bitter. Body is light to medium with soft carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

77ships (4300) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - DEC 4, 2013
33 cl. bottle split with Kraddel. Procured by him. BBF 26/09/2014. Another one of these from the series where the yeast totally doesn’t work with the rest. All of these beers seem to have been made under the stupid idea that “craft” is just hopping the hell out of anything. This stuff really doesn’t work here at all whatever the trappist yeast may be. Smells of something expired, chemicals mixed with nasty herbs, candy sugar, moldy, a total and not very pleasant mess. Taste is sweet, fish guts, candy sugar, herbs, toffee, liquorish, sweet yeast, bitter herbs, chemicals. Thicker yeast in the body, most of all even if still pretty light bodied. I do not agree with this idea of “craft”.

kraddel (3624) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - DEC 4, 2013
pours blonde, big white head smell is the least of all 4 very tripel-based. not as hoppy as the other 3 good carbo fruity, yeaty taste . this is the only one of their ’unleash the yeast ’beers that tastes like yeast , its the best one for what they tried to do , but i liked the other flavours more ( more hops ) its very drinkable and refreshing though ! bit bitter/ sweet in the back
