COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg and bottled, series
The unsung heroes, the foot soldiers of the revolution. We owe a huge debt to the billions of tiny yeast cells that work tirelessly to ferment sugars into alcohol and CO2. But yeast isnt just here for the grunt work. Yeast has the power to change the flavour, aroma and complexion of your beer in an instant. This series is designed to showcase the impact different yeasts have on the same base beer.
This series of 4 beers gives the limelight to four totally different yeast strains: Belgian Trappist, Pilsen Lager, American Ale and Bavarian Weizen. All 4 beers have been brewed to the same ABV using a blend of Centennial and Amarillo hops and a backbone of Pale Ale, Munich and Cara Malts. Malts: Maris Otter, Crystal Malt, Caramalt
Hops: Centennial, Amarillo
Twist: Each beer is identical except for the different yeast used to ferment the beers creating 4 radically different beers from the same starting point

Bire qui fait partie dune remarquable srie de 4 bires consacres la levure. Chaque bire a le mme niveau abv de 6,3%, les mmes houblons Centennial et Amarillo, et les 3 mmes malts: Pale Ale, Munich et Cara. La diffrence tant donc dans la veine de levure. Ici une American ale. Couleur orang abricot, avec un tout lger trouble (esthtique). Bulles fines par dizaines en colonnes diverses. Mousse qui est un nappage crmeux de surface. Armes superbes dagrumes, pamplemousse, fleurs de houblon. 1re bouche souple la magnifique prise sur les agrumes, amertume franche. Arrire-bouche sur le pamplemousse et quelques fruits blancs. 2me exceptionnelle sur le fruit et lamertume. Arrire-bouche bien nette, franche. 3me au got trs fin, avec de la cerise blanche. Arrire-bouche un peu comme un lixir. La longueur dveloppe la complexit, avec du bois blanc, pointe de cassis, girofle, herbes. Les jambes sont grasses et marques. La levure est riche, pice, fleurie, un rien poivre. Lalcool est trs bien pour lapprciation de la fracheur. La finale donne de jolies nuances. CONCLUSION: une trs grande version de ce trs bel ipa, qui rend justice aux States pour la nuance agrumique de leurs bires.

ferencmato (47) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 16, 2013
Bottle. Cloudy golden with white head. Pine, yeast and grapes in aroma, very fresh. Taste is very similar, with floral hops and some caramel. Dry a little bit towards the end. Definitely the best one of "Unleash the Yeast" 4-pack, but its not like those other 3 are bad...That pack really is a perfect way to experience how yeast changes character of a beer, worth every penny.

Sebilinz (1991) - Linz, AUSTRIA - JAN 12, 2014
Bottle nice amber body with off white head. I think the unleash thde yeast series is a very interesting experience and shows how important the yeast is for the taste of a beer. I will not rate them individually because for me the taste of each is not that important. I liked most the American Ale followed by Trappist and Lager and I didnt like the Weizen. Great interesting series.

ekstedt (6577) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle (33 cl) from Systembolaget. Shady amber, medium off-white head. Tropical fruit hop aroma with oranges and apricots, and some piney notes with a hint of aniseed. Medium bodied, medium carbonation. Dry with medium to high bitterness. An IPA as far as Im concerned, and a darn good one.

Hoppy_Luke (1396) - Poznań, POLAND - FEB 3, 2015
Ostatnia odsłona Unleash The Yeast. I ze wszystkich najlepsza! Bardzo przyjemny owocowy aromat - owoce leśne, nieco cytrusw... Wyczuwalny słd. W smaku bardzo przyjemna goryczka, cała paleta owocw. Idealna wręcz kontra słodowa, średnie wysycenie. Bardzo pijalne piwo pomimo tego, że jest dość treściwe. Podsumowując serię Unleash The Yeast, wychodzi na to, że zmiana jednego składnika - drożdży może zupełnie zmienić charakter piwa!

Swaroga (2151) - Gdańsk, POLAND - DEC 24, 2013
33cl bottle. Light orange with medium head. NOSE : tart with strong citrus and pine aromas. Pomelo, orange zest etc. SIP : Medium body with decent carbonation. The beer has a strong sweet tart like background. It carries delicate dry like lemon juice notes and further on it develops decent bitterness. Bitter as a citrus seed. Aftertaste is sweet candy like with a good doze of aromatic citrus hops. OVERALL : this one is completely different then the others. It seams the American ale yeast changed the beer completely. Very tasty.
