Countbeer (4728) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, - FEB 2, 2013
Bottle: Medium to bigger sized, vast, thick and slowly changing white head on top of a hazy bright yellow colored beer. The aroma’s or smell of this beer is pretty bad/strange: sweaty grains, light yeasty, baby poo, corn, sweat, wheat, hemp and a hint of paper. Taste wheat, corn, hint of hops, hint of spices, grains, bitter, hint of citrus and peach, hint of paper, hint of soap and herbs. Aftertaste is bitter with spices, herbs and grass and light dry. Low carbo, soft mouthfeel, medium body and a creamy texture Decent beer, nothing spectacular but not bad either.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 330ml bottle served in its own chalice glass. A: Light golden yellow color that becomes a bit cloudy in the end of the pouring. Forms a big and very bubbled white head. Strong carbonation with lot of thin bubbles coming from the bottom of the glass. Lots of soapy lacings are formed and left in the glass. Big retention with a creamy layer that remains forever on the top S: Very sweet, grainy and biscuity in the nose. A bit fruity too. Notes of oranges, honey, orange zest, Belgian bready yeasts and flowery hops. A little bit boozy in the end T: Light sweet upfront. Very grainy. Sweet grains. Notes of pale grains, dry fruits, sweet bread, honey, orange and orange zest. Classic bready Belgian yeasts. Taste becomes slightly bitter and remains till the end. Good stingy hops bitterness in the end. Nice hops profile. A bit boozy end M: Heavy and molasses body. Belgian bittersweet style. Aftertaste is bready, citrus and bitter O: Good drinkability. Classic Belgian Strong Pale Ale. Good [ BA Review @ 4/11/2014 ]
