2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330 ml bottle @ Destination Gotland ferry
Golden orange slightly hazy beer which comes murky by adding the yeast. Makes a little white head. Aroma is dry yeasty, vinegary and berryish sour with some toffee sweetness. Flavor is mostly bitter in a grapefruity and hayish dry way. There’s also some maltiness and yeastiness. Adding the yeast in softens the bitterness a bit but doesn’t really add anything. Palate is thin with hard carbonation. The finish is interesting – first a bite of bitterness, then nothing for a second, then a lingering bitterness which lasts for minutes. Overall dry and bitter, not refreshing. Weird beer considering the title says it’s an "Abbey beer". Well, it has yeast in it.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home, ordered from Ocado. Gooseberry, banana and lemon notes fight with a harsh astringency in the aroma. Taste is a heavily medicinal bitter. Fizzy carbonation on the palette. Pleasant fruity aftertaste. This isn’t great but is at least drinkable.
