RBSG07. From 50 cL bottle (Bavarian US export version). Pours muddy brown with an off white head. Aroma is banana and bubblegum. Flavour is the same into the finish which has some bitterness. I just don’t get the bubblegum thing.

Brewdog Shepherds Bush. Keg. Almost opaque dark brown beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is smooth with fine carbonation. Sweetish malts with mild figgy dark fruits. A little malt cream and sweet bubblegum. Light finish. Delivers on the style without ever being spectacular.

yngwie (13693) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2009
Bottle, from trade with MiP. It pours a semi-clear, brown body under a small, off-white head. Grainy, bready nose with caramel and a little fruityness. I think it lacks a bit there, especially on the banana. Bready and grainy flavor too, with some hops giving bitterness, but also here it’s low on fruityness. Medium to full body. A decent weizenbock, but it didn’t impress at all. (081229)

MiP (13662) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 20, 2008
Bottle, 7.5%. Claims to be BB January 2001, 7 years ago, but here goes. Vinous aroma, somewhat like Aventinus. Dark, cloudy brown colour. Small, stable tan head. The flavour is quite sweet with some anis feel to it. As it warms, it gets a little roasted aftertaste, apart from that I find it slightly boring. I am still not sure whether it is too old or not.
