COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Strandgaper is a real musselbeer. Its full, smooth malty flavor and refreshing bittersweet finish make it the ideal accompaniment to a mussel dish.

SheffieldSteel (117) - St Nikolai im Sausal, AUSTRIA - JAN 2, 2013
Pours medium white head. Colour yellow hazy gold. Aroma of tropical fruit, lime and citrus peel. Taste is banana, grapefruit, mead, lemongrass. Medium sweet and quite malty, sharply bitter. Carbonation low. Finish long, lemony. An interesting beer, but too much unripe banana and sharp bitterness for my liking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

thanatosti (1305) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 2, 2013 33 cl. bottle @ home, gift from Hilde. Hazy golden with a big white head. Fruity floral aroma with some lemon. Starts sweet like a typical blonde but then continues with more bitter notes, making the taste deeper and more mature. Nice blonde.

ALLOVATE (2769) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 12, 2012
Tasting from Feb’ 2007, so from notes alone.
At cellar temperature as I didn’t know what to make of it. Into a chalice it produced up a muddy, pastel deep yellow. Well conditioned with very fine, streaming carbonation. Everlasting, dense two fingers of foam atop leaves behind a thick web of lace. A lot of yeast on first sniff but this stands aside to bring up notes of sun-drenched wheat, damp chaff and dusty grains, ripe grapefruit and honeydew, salt water, pale candi and bitter, green herbs. Aroma floods the mouth; the flavour quite headstrong in comparison. Grainy, pasty and dry on the palate. The flavour of shellfish bouillon comes in not dissimilar to the Schelderbrouwerij Oesterstout and one I found in the aroma of their Dulle Griet. The carbonation is soft making the body fill out quickly. Alcohol is oddly evident after some drawn out bitter and tangy citrus that lingers long between sips. Fresh cracked pilsner malt, chaff, unsalted peanuts, tree bark and a little sweet crystal form a very tasty base. Fruit esters balance it, and the salty, mineral edge just completes it. Loved this one. A strange, continuously evolving yet simple brew. Delicious. Wonder how a new batch tastes by comparison!!!? (33cL, BBE 09/07, Int’l Beer Shop, W. Leederville)
