COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle and keg, occasional
previously available cask conditioned
"You know you shouldn’t."
Ingredients: Maris Otter, Caramalt and Munich Malt; Motoeka (Belgian Saaz) and Amarillo hops.
A titillating, neurotic, peroxide, punk of a pale ale. Combining attitude, style substance and a little bit of low self esteem for good measure; what would your mother say?
The seductive lure of the sassy passion fruit hop proves too much to resist. All that is even before we get onto the fact that there are no additives preservatives, pasteurization or strings attached. All wrapped up with the customary Brewdog bite and imaginative twist.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 3, 2011
{thoughts} Fruity and bright blond ale with a few quirky points and a lingering buzzing sensation.

{elements} Brilliant pale gold hue; white, foamy head. Bright passion fruity and pineapple aroma; soft bready malts and forest berries in the background. Sharp flavor; off-dry sweetness makes way for buzzing carbonic acidity and prickly bitterness; fruity and grassy with a bit of blue cheese at the end. Slick texture, lively carbonation, medium-light body. 33cl bottle, best before 29-11-11.

Yellow and a bit hazy. Has a white head, medium duration. Flavor is hoppy, grassy, hay and faint spicy. Flavor is moderate sweet and finish heavy bitter. Dry texture.

pivnizub (10610) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - MAR 2, 2011
Bottle: Golden to deep golden, big firm off-white head; moderate to solid citrussy hop-profile in the bitter-apricoty nose; solid bitter-sweet flavour, pleasantly light bodied and soft; lingering dry lemony-hoppy finish, sticking to the palate. Another great scottish Blond Ale.....

tfredvik (1941) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2011 Original rating 25.02.2011: 6-4-3-2-6-2.1
Yellow/orange, hazy, with a long lasting, white, frothy head. Looks tempting! The pleasant aroma is citrus, pine and flowers. The taste is very bitter, with lots of grapefruit, and an annoyingly bitter finish. Lively carbonation. Metallic feel. A bit like licking a 9V Duracell battery covered in grapefruit juice. I spent the rest of the evening trying to get rid of the metallic, grapefruity bitterness from my mouth.

Re-rating, 13.05.2011
Annoying bitterness? It’s lovely! I guess I’ve finally grown up. There isn’t much more than bitter grapefruit here, but I like it. [33 cl bottle, from Ultra, Bryn, Oslo]

igniztion (313) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 23, 2011
Bottle 330ml batch 89. Pours hazy, pale yellow with small foamy white head that leaves lots of lacing. Aroma has notes of tropical fruits, grapefruit. Taste is light sweet, light to medium bitter, lasting dry bitterness, some metallic sensation. Light body, thin, average to lively carbonation.

2.8
Erasmus_ro (2945) - Alabama, USA - FEB 19, 2011
330ml bottle. Pours golden with a small, light head. Aroma is fruity, florally hoppy and crisp. Taste is hoppy with pine and some grapefruit. Palate is dry and carbonated. Very nice drink, especially when taking into consideration the low ABV. Rather one dimensional though and there are a whole bunch of others like this already.

stefanocs2 (6) - pescara, ITALY - FEB 19, 2011 does not count
ottima birra provata per caso con molti dubbi mi ha veramente sorpreso nel complesso buona con sentori di frutta abbastanza persistenti

3.8
tkrjukoff (4335) - SWEDEN - FEB 19, 2011
Pours slightly hazy golden with a shortlived offwhite head. Aroma is sweet caramel, malty, piny and fruity. Crisp bitter mouthfeel. Flavor is hoppy, slightly roasted, caramel, grapefruit and some biscuits. Very nice smooth palate. Finish is longlived bitter hoppy, similar to Punk IPA but less. Still the aftertaste stays for a long while.
