electrotype (317) - Montreal, Quebec, - JUN 18, 2014
Je vais vous dire c’est quoi la Disco Soleil : c’est LA bière la plus facile à boire que j’ai essayé de toute ma vie, point. Je crois d’ailleurs qu’elle vise à quelque part ce marché des personnes encore non initiées à la bière, qui aiment au mieux boire une Corona sur une terasse quand il fait chaud l’été... Cette bière pourrait être un point tournant pour elles.

Non seulement la Disco Soleil se boit d’une manière encore jamais vue pour moi, mais elle n’est pas fade pour autant! On goûte définitivement les fruits (agrûmes et Kumquat j’imagine) et il y a une amertûme de houblons bien présente mais qui demeure controllée à la perfection... Bref, rien qui peut choquer un palais non expérimenté d’une côté, mais rien de trop aqueux non plus pouvant faire fuire les beer geeks plus avertis. En fait, ces derniers vont probablement considérer la Disco Soleil comme une "bière de soif". Une christie de bonne bière de soif!

Bon travail DDC!

Idiosynkrasie (4532) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 7, 2015
341ml bottle. Hazy amber colour with average to huge, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Fruity, citrusy, hoppy aroma, rather unspecific fruitiness. Taste is bitter hoppy, citrusy, zesty, hints of orange, mandarine - OK, kumquat.

c0fein (310) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 4, 2015
341ml bottle from Saveur-Biere. Bottled on 10/14.

Hazy pale orange colour with a big white head. Dry strong fruits, dry bitterness, a bit different fruitiness; maybe that Kumquat does that. OK IPA but not so fresh one.

Sarpa (1040) - FINLAND - APR 2, 2015
Bottle 341ml @ Danilo. Pours hazy yellow, white head. Fruity, sweet aroma, tropical. Citrus fruits, caramel in the flavor.

olio (7018) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 2, 2015
341 ml bottle @ hotel room, Rome.
Pours golden color with a large head. Sweet fruity aroma, oily hops, some peach notes on the background. Sweet orange on the flavor, resinous hops and some faint caramel as well. Nice and fruity, could be a bit hoppier still.

laiti (6496) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 2, 2015
34,1 cl bottle @ hotel room, Rome
Aroma is heavy, sweet and fruity with caramel and citrus. Feels very american. Flavour has grapefruit, citrus, biscuits and caramel. Sweet and citrusy IPA. Refreshing.

lusikka (6766) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 27, 2015
341 ml bottle. Pours a cloudy orange colour with a small white head. Aroma of fresh floral hops, grapefruit and white grapes. Really heavy crisp flavour of rich floral bitterness, chewy citrusy notes, biscuit and mild sweetness. Kumquat makes this really unique towards the end with it’s tartness. Medium bodied. Long lingering bitter finish. Brilliant.

blackmetal (143) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 25, 2015
Smooth blend of IPA and kumquat (although it tasted more like peach which is not a bad thing). Another solid addition to my favorite Canadian brewery.

Vignale (2365) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAR 22, 2015
Flaska från Saveur-bier. En ganska söt och väldigt fruktig IPA. Citrus finns där men framför allt persika, massor av solmogen vit persika, lite persikagodis, passionsfrukt och aprikos, måttlig beska. Riktigt gott.

cmacklin (339) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 21, 2015
341 ml bottle.(6.5% ABV) Pours a hazy, golden orange with a large, long lasting, frothy, off-white head that laces. Sweet, fruity, hoppy, citrus aroma. Sweet flavour of grapefruit, kumquat, pine, grass and a hint of wheat with a dry, bitter, hoppy finish. Medium body with a sticky, oily texture and average carbonation. Well done!

dresden (1063) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAR 20, 2015
Cloudy orange. Fruity aroma of oranges and I guess kumquat, I don’t exactly eat a lot of kumquats. Juicy fruity beer with some b piney hop flavour but a really nice beer overall
