3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the Craft Bar PCB. I thought this might be a wild styled sour but it turned out to be a tasty Belgian strong ale. Sweet with a hint of lemon tart citrus and syrup. Very nice.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A cloudy dark yellow colour with an impressive and long lasting head of foam.
The nose is funky with the usual suspects for the style...cloves, wheat. .then the apple juice comes into play. That adds the tiniest bit of tart fruit.
The taste is also funky and has some spicy notes right up to the finish where the apple adds some fruity tartness but more distinctly, an extreme dryness.
Light bodied with very active carbonation.
I have to say after the first couple of sips, I considered this to be a potential drain pour. Palate familiarity finally set in and I was able to stick it out, so to speak.
Iduna Cru still doesn’t fit in to my comfort zone so there will be no more bottles for me.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into a taster glass showing a bright lemon peel yellow with a finger of a white foam.
The nose shows a lot of lime zest and notes of black pepper in between.
The palate shows is very light bodied with a high carbonation. The taste shows a very strong apple and lemon forwardness with a slight tartness. There’s a slight champagne style yeasty bitterness surrounding the whole beer and in the background.
