yngwie (13693) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 15, 2011
Bottle, courtesy of fonefan. A beer that pours with a few micro-floaties in an else clear, golden body. Small, white head. There’s some brett-like aromas here, slighlty citrusy and barnyardish, with a grassy, citrus-peel like hoppyness and some malts. Hints of black pepper. The flavor has some pepper, along with brett and bitterness. Medium body, quite dry. A long finish is more or less like the initial flavor, nice and yummy. A beer that might not be intentionally bretted, but it’s sure nice. 110415
