Wasn’t sure what to expect here and I honestly didn’t know what effect seaweed would have. It was really just a great imperial Pilsner. Strong Pilsner malt aroma with hint on seawater. Clear light golden color with a big white head. Light palate with strong carbonation. I think some oxidation may have occurred but didn’t distract much. Strong lager yeast flavors with a big hop finish.

Not bad a bit strange. Slightly salty, although not really. Umami? Maybe a bit. Quite dry and astringent. Not too bitt, but a bitter feel to it.

So, seaweed in beer. A Belgian beer no less. But somehow it works. The umami flavor is a nice offset to the beer, which even though is a pilsener has that slightly sour Belgian beer feel to it.

Bottle 750ml.

[ As Mad Umami ].
Clear medium to dark yellow orange color with a average to large, frothy, good lacing, mostly to fully lasting, off-white to white head. Aroma is moderate malty, pale malt, caramel, herbs, grass, seaweed. Flavor is moderate sweet and moderate to heavy bitter with a long duration, herbs - grass, salty, fruity. Quict rich body - maybe because of the umami. Body is medium, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft. [20150130]

AdiBeer (1994) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2015
Aroma: intense caramel and bread malts, sweets with some light salty note. Appearance: hazy gold, small, white, creamy head. Taste: light sweet or maybe umami. Palate: sweets continue, very malty, fruity, light saltiness, dry finish. Overall: this is a funny one, lots of malty flavours, light saltiness, but not much more. Pint at Small Bar, Bristol.

Swaroga (1715) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 8, 2015
Butelka 75cl. OCZY : piwo jest całkiem przejrzyste o kolorze pomarańczowym. Piana jest spora o kolorze białym. Mięsista i trwała. NOS : piwo ma bardzo przyjemny aromat tarty, czerstwego chleba, pomarańczy, przedojrzałych mandarynek, miodu, troszeczke utlenienia i morskiej soli. USTA : piwo jest średnio gęste, tłustsze niż "normalny" pils. Nasycenie jest również średnie i bardzo przyjemne. Raczej wytrawne podobne do rozwodnionego czwórniaka. Gorycz jest uwypuklona cytrusowymi nutami skórek pomarańczy. Umami… nie jestem pewien czym jest ten smak. Sugieruję się opisami pełności w ustach ale przyznam, że dopuki ktoś mi nie da poprawnego przykładu to nie czuję się w stanie tego smaku określić. W tym piwie jest wyczuwalny smak suchych glonów na styl Nori ale nie dominuje tego piwa. Podobno to ten dziwny posmak jest świetnym przykładem Umami…. Ogólnie piwo mocno wyważone i łatwe w piciu. Posmak przypomina skórkę ponarańcza i Nori. ODCZUCIA : całkiem ciekawe i łatwe w piciu. Szału nie ma natomiast świetnie pasuje do gotowanych lub surowych dań rybnych, gotowanej golonki i smarzonych warzyw.

Hamirubi (298) - Waarschoot, BELGIUM - MAR 1, 2015
15cl. at the Ghent Beer Festival in 2014. The hops are very present, yet the beer is not that bitter. It tastes light, and is a smooth drinker.
