Countbeer (3680) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - JUL 8, 2012
1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Medium airy white head, that disappears really quick, on top of a murky orange colored beer.
Smell is soooo bad: over soaped and over sweaty hay. Stingy. Unbalanced! Nasty! Thats all.
Taste is better than smell still nothing good: pine, pine apple, cactus, light bitter, some hops, yellow fruit, sweetbitter, strange , very unbalanced, very strange!
Aftertaste is a mix of rotten overripe yellow fruit, some light bitter and light yeast.
Low carbo, soft watery mouthfeel, medium body and a watery texture.
Fuck(!) what happened with this beer? Wrong fruits and yeast? Vitamine pills? This beer is Completely fucked up! Drainpour!
Don’t get it why this beer get such high score!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to Blake for sharing! Poured cloudy, straw golden with a short off-white head. The aroma picked up honey and pils malts topped by a hefty floral presence.. some banana and wet, meaty bread too.. came back to flowers on the back of the nose. The flavor opened tart and bitter, with catty and floral notes.. aged honeysuckle and bready support.. kaffir lime and salty notes joined flowers on the finish.. very interesting and different. Lower-carbonation on the palate, and a touch slick.. this was some strange brew, but I’d hit it again.
