yngwie (12722) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle, 50cl. A dense, two-finger off-white head forms over a lighlty unclear golden body. There’s a little sugary note in the aroma, with a generic fruityness, some peppery hints and a touch of pale malts. It’s semi-dry on the palate, appropriately carbonated and full. Fruity flavor with some saison yeast and pepper, hints of pine cones, and a nice bitterness. Lasting fruity and bitter finish with some peppery yeastyness. Pretty decent this one, at least it’s dry enough. 140228
