Mycket har nog inte sagts om Piebalga Alus, troligen för att det kräver en Nobelprisvinnande poet för att få ned upplevelsen på papper. Ölet är som en tapet man sett varje dag de senaste tjugo åren: en blind fläck i den del av hjärnan som registrerar och handlägger sinnesintryck.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Full bodied lager with a strength of taste you would associate with a much stronger lager. Slighty bitter finish. Alright.

Dorqui (2056) - Brescia, ITALY - OCT 15, 2010
Draught at Citi Laiki (Riga).
Golden yellow color, medium head, nice bubbly aspect. Light notes of malty, dried grassy, wheat. Little watery taste, not much crisp and with a light bitter content.

rlgk (9492) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - MAR 9, 2010
Bottle. Pale golden color, quite nice white head. Grassy aroma, hay and some spices. Hoppy grassy flavor with some metal and some bread and toffee. Balanced bitter finish.

Frovigalning (2720) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 29, 2009
It poured a clear golden liquid with a small foam that left some lacing. It didn’t have any odor at all. Tasted like a cheap kind of sparkled water.

SaintMatty (4763) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 30, 2009
500ml Bottle - Golden coloured with a small white head. Malty and slightly hoppy aroma with a hint of citrus. Bitter and fruity taste with malt and hints of lemon,

MiP (13047) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2008
Bottle, 5.6%. Weak grassy hop aroma. Clear dark golden colour. Stable white head. The flavour does have some OK grassy hops, but it is also a little rough. Good mouthfeel.

KnutAlbert (5789) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 27, 2008
Rather sweet brew, lots of soft fruit and flowers. Boiled veg - carrots, califlower. Not the first beer to seek out in Latvia!

faroeviking (10294) - FAROE ISLANDS - JAN 31, 2008
"Piebalgas Gasais". Bottle. Pours a clear amber colour with a big short lasting white head. Aroma of toasted malt and some hops. Sweet flavour with toasted malt, caramel and a soft bitter hoppiness.

UPDATED: JAN 16, 2014 Tap (Alus Arsenals, Riga) (6:4:6:4:12=3.2)
Milky grains, plenty in aroma, but tons in the taste. So milky and soft. Has an interesting quirk as you swallow, but it’s Piebalgas, you expect some quirks. I think this is what the brewer intended, so putting more weight behind this rating.
Rerate of: 500ml bottle (3:2:3:2:5=1.5)
Mid yellow, thin head. Slightly light mushroomy aroma, but not much. Passable mouthfeel, gives an early warning that there’s a pungent hoppiness and some maltiness. When swallowed, it leaves something somewhere between iffy and dodgy in your mouth, hard to describe where on that spectrum it lies. Some aspects aren’t a complete disaster, it’s definitely made from ingredients that make beer. And dead rats. Finish alas takes some of the more unpleasant aspects of the taste, and punishes you even more. I’m left with rubber or plastic, and grass.
rerate of Draught (?, Kuldiga) (3-2-1-1-2=0.9)
Light gold, thin head. Pungent aroma. Outrageous taste - bitter and super-nasty. John liked it, and it wasn’t off. Just horrid. Fishy. Metallic.
