3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very small, fast gone whitish head over unclear yellow beer with Grünstich. Very fine, lively pearling. End of bottle is a UFO attack. Wheat, unmistakably and even unmistakably a Brett aroma, citrus/rhubarblike and horseblanket included. Lychee? I don’t get any. Wood. Brett. Sweetened rhubarb, celery, unripe prunes. Lychee?? I’ve had IPA’s without an ounce of fruit that tasted 100x more of lychee than this. Thinnish, fully attenuated, well-carbonated, dry. Mild sourish aftertaste, but quite fast dead. Generally a bit thin, if nice, very drinkable. Fruity, if not the intended fruit. Many thanks to the boss!
