Vignale (2057) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 28, 2014
Flaska från SB. Gyllenfrägad och klar tills bottensatsen går i och grumlar ölet en smula. Välbalanserat och friskt krispig med belgisk jäst, hö, gräs, lätt grapetouch men även lite krusbär, lime, mango, passionsfrukt gröna druvor, lätt men rejäl maltbas med lite vetekex. Lätt saazbeska. Riktigt trevlig. Ett generöst öl som man lätt dricker en flaska av men som man gärna delar med någon.

Bottle consumed march 2014. Aroma of wet hay, herbal grassy hops. Lemon cracker malts. Moderate to heavy Bitter wet grass. Pine. Some soap. Bitterness tamed a touch as it warms. Pretty dry.
