On tap at Csak a Jó Sör - Only Good Beer in Budapest. Pours a lightly hazed, golden colored body with a finger-width, dense, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is grainy with a bit of cheese to the hops, but there is a good amount of citruses florals and a slight crystal malt sweetness next to the distinct hefe yeast strain. Flavor is similar. Some touches of clove phenols and banana with a good amount of citrus hops, some resins, and a slightly sweet crystal malt backing. Finishes dry and bitter with some resins and a hefe yeastiness. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, an interesting and decent IPA. Nothing special, but the hefe yeast makes this pretty unique. Not bad.

hazy dark golden colour, significant off-white head; very pleasant aroma of citruses (mainly grapefruit), fresh bitterness and some malty notes with banana (?); taste is fully dominated by hoppy bitterness and very intensive citrussy notes, however some maltyness can also be felt and I would say that the effect of the used yeast line is also detectable slightly in the taste and aroma (something from the freshness of wheatbeers);excellent IPA! Congratulations, master armando :)

Draught.
Pours an unclear orange with a medium sized off-white head on its top.
Fruity nose.
Caramel malt based aroma with grapes, herbs, honey underpainted by some bread.
Slick mouthfeel.
Long sweetbitter finish escorted by distinct resiny hop, which leaves an orange peel liked aftertaste behind..
Enjoyable, nice.

On tap @ F?zdefeszt 4. Hazy pale orange body, off-white head. Aroma of a classic hefeweizen with some hops: citruses and banana. Flavor of banana with a citrusy, herby bitterness. Nice one but I like the original Grabanc more.

Na, ez beütött nekem! Fantasztikus, hogy a tipikusan búzaélesztős, citrusos, banános, édeskés illat után, jött egy szép, igen intenzíven grapefruitos, gyantás közép és egy olyan kérlelhetetlen kesernyés befejezés, ami gyakorlatilag csomót kötött a nyelvemre. Igen összetett, élvezetes és igen férfias kísérleti állatot rakott össze nekünk Armando mester, amit ha nem fog máskor is megtenni, akkor súlyos oldalakkal lesz gazdagítva az amúgy sem vékony kórházi zárójelentéseinek dossziéja.

Grabanc varieties never let down! This lighter version is a tasty summertime beer. Available at Csak a Jó Sör on tap. Great hoppy beer that has a bit of a kick.

Grabanc, grabanc na. Fel is merül bennünk a kérdés, mint laikusokban, hogy vajon az élesztő miben hathat az ízére? De hamar túllépünk rajta. Kicsit később, lenyelés után, váratlanul támad, lesből gyilkol, nem szemtől szembe, esélyt sem hagy a győzelemre, és egy vastag fenyőgyanta réteget ragaszt fel az ember nyelvére. Béla szerint a fesztivál söre, nekem kiszárítja a szájpadlásom, és egy kérdést vet fel bennem még: A matricás a sima grabanc??? Na, ugye-ugye. Manapság már egyik grabanc a másik.
