I really liked this one. Perhaps more than say Delirium Tremens itself. this one is sweet, fruity, malty, and delicous.

Pyrmir (3351) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - NOV 25, 2012
330 ml bottle. The sampled bottle might have been a bit rustled, so more yeast than normal was in the sample. Aroma thick with belgoyeast and banana. Tastes sweet, fizzy, banana. Balanced, hides the alcohol well.

Poured a clearish orange although there are definitely some murky yeast or carbonation bubbles kicking around and the head and lace retention are great. Citric and some sweet fruit and definite yeast and spicy nose as it is a particularly strong beer. Crisp, light bodied, passes easy, great balance between a crisp edge thanks to spice and carbonation and a smoothness from yeast as well as some sweet fruit flavors like mango or pineapple as well as crisp citric orange. Alcohol started to warm the finish and hit me as I drank but overall this is a really enjoyable ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
