COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Collaboration brew - Farmhouse IPA with funky flavours. This brew is the result of a unique collaboration between Lervig Aktiebryggeri (Norway) and Magic Rock (UK). Here we have combined our love of hops and funky flavours to make this farmhouse style IPA. Belgian yeasts and brettanomyces will make this beer more and more spicy over time. Enjoy today and tomorrow!

Draft @ Oliver Twist, 30/3-14.
Cloudy yellow with a short white head. Hoppy and citric aroma with some wheat and brett. Taste is citric, dry and bitter with straw and a spicy and slight acidic bretty character. Medium bodied, slight spritzy carbonation, dry. Pretty tasty but also a bit forgettable. Saison? IPA? Hops? Brett? Ah, just throw it in there.

Vaiz (3824) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 30, 2015
Bottle camping in France. Hazy golden pour, thick white head. Aroma of funky yeast, slightly earthy, some fruity hops, quite spicy and with some citrus fruits. Flavor is quite bitter, spicy and a bit yeasty. Thick body and heavy carbonation.

SlackerMads (2089) - DENMARK - JUL 30, 2015
Bottle received in the European Secret Summer Santa 2015, thanks McTapps. Hazy/unclear orange with a medium sized off white head. Nose has sweet tropical fruits and light barnyard. Flavour is mostly brett with barnyard, hay, leather. Some earthy notes and dried green plants. Medium body, watery texture, prickling carbonation, mild sweet, medium bitter. Dry finish with brett and some tropical fruit shows up also. Fair enough.

Hazy light gold, medium white head. Hay, yeast and some US hop aroma. Hay, bitterness, some sour notes and some funk on the tongue. Finishes dry and a bit sour. Nice.

Härligt grumlig. Skummar bra. Luktar lite gräsigt, fruktigt. Smakar lite kryddigt. Bättre efterhand.

Vells (1000) - Riga, LATVIA - JUL 15, 2015
Some decent qualities of IPA. but Belgian kick didnt worked well for me in this brew. Nice grapefruit, lemon, some tropical fruits, brett and yeast cuts of something from it, not adding replacement. Again.. drinkable, but one-timer

Fashawn (430) - Montesarchio, ITALY - JUL 12, 2015
Versata nel bicchiere fa la sua figura, immediatamente. Bello il color arancio, senza torbidità e solo una lievissima velatura. La schiuma invece è disordinata, non persistente e nemmeno compatta. Scompare dopo poco, e lascia soltanto un vago ricordo dopo un paio di minuti. Aroma di lime e limone sulle prime, ma saldandosi emerge tantissimo pino e qualche richiamo funky, e di acido lattico, tipo yogurt. Imbocco dolce, sapore di miele smorzato da un minimo di agrumi ed un riflesso vagamente acido, qualcosa tipo Brett e di formaggio quasi. Spezie, e finale erbaceo. Peccato non ci sia quanto processo al naso, ma la birra si lascia bere bene. Buona comunque. Anche se è un ibrido che non conquista.

Glowing amber body, good head. Enjoyable body, but slightly too spritzy. (Should be great on tap!) Great combo of light peppery, not very clean yeast, with a long development such that the (dry) hopping shines through. Better balanced that I could even do. Of anything it doesn’t blow any socks of, but very well made. Need to get my paws on some more Lervig brews... (33cl bottle from Saveur Bière)

Clear golden with medium white head. Nose is citrus with an acid hint. Aromas are citrus (lemon), spices, hay and straw. Average carbonation, light body. Long bitter and acid lemony finish. Quite good

Pours clear golden with medium white head. Nose is citrus with an acid hint. Aromas are citrus (lemon), spices, hay and straw. Average carbonation, light body. Long bitter and acid lemony finish. Quite good, but too much on acidity for me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
