Glouglouburp (6022) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 26, 2011
In short: Fresh banana-hefe and plenty of grapefruity/citric hops. Wonderful
How: Tap at brewpub, Maple Shade location NJ
The look: Cloudy yellow body topped by a medium white head
In long: Nose has the fresh bananas I’m expecting from a german hefe but also a whole lot of grapefruity hops. Taste is fresh bananas, notes of mangos, lots of moderately bitter grapefruits, some lemon, some green pine needles. The dominant flavors of bananas and bitter white grapefruits worked so well together in a way I had never experienced before. Tasty and very refreshing. Full and lively body. This is quite a treat for a below 5% beer. I’d like to tell everybody who love the same beers as I do how good I thought this was but I don’t feel like talking to myself right now.
