Bottleshare thanks to Leighton. Hazy gold beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is airy and semi dry, good fine carbonation. Mild lactic sourness gives way to zippy generic fruits, lemon rises above. Dry and slightly tart finish also brings in a savoury note. Not bad at all.

yngwie (15390) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 26, 2015
Bottle, 75cl. An unclear, lightly pinkish orange beer topped by a minimal sized off-white head. Wonderful aroma with blood orange, some flower and funk, lemon hints, leather and citrus zest. It’s medium to full-bodied, quite dry and with a very nice carbonation level. The hibiscus addition is very cleverly done, the blood orange likewise, but the lime is well hidden. Which doesn’t bother me at all. Lime is for Corona’s. There’s a nice bitterness too, some pepper and a generic flower and fruit touch, and a very lasting finish. I’d love to have this with the ceviche I had yesterday, and I love drinking it now. Was actually planning on taking this one back to Norway, but weight restrictions forced me to pull two bottles from my suitcase. Reckoned this one to be the least interesting of the ones I were bringing. If so I will be a very happy man when I get back home and crack open the other ones. Doubt it though. 150626

Bottle share at RBSG. Cloudy gold; herbal, funky, citrus. Reminds me of gin-aged upright stuff. Been wanting to try this for a long time -- may have to sneak some more if the bottle sticks around.
