Countbeer (4367) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass: Medium sized thicker snowy white foamy head on top of a hazy yellow colored beer. The aroma is a subliminal mix of loads of hop fruits; mango, citrus, pine apple, peach, apples, lemon, cake, pie, some herbal hops and yeast with a sweet citrus/vanilla/marzipan edge. The fruit dominates the hell out of the aroma. Absolutely amazing aroma! Flavour has also loads of fruit, peach, pine apple, melon, some citrus and lemon, light apricot, light tangerine, smooth and soft, some fruity herbs, good gentle growing bitterness, hops, light hint of yeast, floral and some herbal tones. This is a full fruity floral bitter beer. It’s difficult to trace malts and such. Aftertaste is fruity, herbal, hay, hoppy, floral and has a light light malty touch. Low carbo, creamy silky mouthfeel, very well balanced more than medium bodied and a light oily texture. Also had a draught sample, either way, they blew me away! Amazing beer, full fruit, crispy, balanced, tasty, etc. The Kernel did it again. Just great!

Bottled 26.08.13, 7.2% abv. A light yellow beer with a white and medium head. The nose is pretty great, exotic and tropical, gooseberries, lychee and some fructose. Taste is strongy bitter but also nicely aromatic, tropical fruits, mangos, citrusfruits, some pine needles, hint of balancing sweetness. Medium+ bodied, smooth carbonation, easy to drink. Very tastefull IPA with strong bitterness but still smooth and aromatic.

Saeglopur (293) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - DEC 12, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2013 Bottle from saveur-biere.com. Yellow to amber hazy body with big, creamy, long-lasting, white head, that leaves a good lacing. Big aroma of grapefruit, mango, citrus, sugar, subtle minty notes. Great taste, dominant grapefruit, citrus, pineapple, candy and again some subtle mint, the bitterness shows up pretty early. Medium mouthfeel, oily, with a lively carbonation and a great long, bitter grapefruit and lemon peel finish. Top class IPA, refreshing, unique, pretty aggressive, but still well balanced.
