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 isn’t 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

Zgodnie z oczekiwaniami, kolejna propozycja z serii Unleash The Yeast okazała się ciekawsza. Nie jestem jednak pewien, czy w odpowiedni sposób. Szkło do pszenicy odkurzone i szybko w nim znalazła się cała zawartość butelki 0,33. Przy tej pojemności mogłem sobie pozwolić na dynamiczne przelanie w celu nacieszenia oczu piękną puszystą pianą. Jasny, dość jaskrawy kolor, charakterystyczny dla stylu sugerował, że wszystko idzie w dobrym kierunku... Aromat też był całkiem niezły - wyczułem nieco owocowe nuty. Po spróbowaniu wątpliwości, że to piwo pszeniczne nie miałem. Ale wydaje mi się, że wspólna dla całej serii moc jak na ten styl jest zbyt duża! Nuty alkoholowe przykryły mi wszystko, czego po lekkim orzeźwiającym piwie się spodziewałem... Na półmetku degustacji serii BrewDoga, powoli formuje mi się teza, że jednak zamiana gatunku drożdży przy niezmienionej pozostałej recepturze może okazać się zabiegiem niewystarczającym...

Rune (12587) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 9, 2015
330ml bottle, batch 243, from Vinmonopolet Bestillingsutvalget. Shared with Finn. Near-clear golden-brown body. Hazy last pour. Average off-white head, slowly diminishing leaving spotty lacing to the glass. Wheat fruity nose, lots a fresh peaches. Succulent taste of orange and peach, lightly spices. Mild citrus peels to the ending. Fine bodied. Refreshing and thirst quenching (Tromsø 08.04.2015).

Finn (7513) - Tromsø, NORWAY - APR 9, 2015
Flaske 330ml spandert av Rune og delt med ham på Rundvannet 8 Apr 15. Gyldenbrun. Småpartikler. Middels høyt skum med ørlite farge. God fruktaroma. Mest mandarin. Smaken er syrlig frukt. Grapefrukt dominerer. Balansert. Avslutter tørt. Veldig uklar siste kvelling. Mye sedimenter igjen på flaska. Godt øl!

33cl bottle at home. Hazy amber with a medium white soapy head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Quite sweet with some bitter tones. Banana, vanilla, citrus, grain, spices and some herbs. A decent brew.

Bottle from Brewdog Online. Copper, orange, with single finger white head. Yeasty on the nose, touch of citrus, lemon. Much the same on the taste, possible banana, yeast is very strong on the taste!

Bière qui fait partie d’une remarquable série de 4 bières consacrées à la levure. Chaque bière a le même niveau abv de 6,3 %, les mêmes houblons Centennial et Amarillo, et les 3 mêmes malts : Pale Ale, Munich et Cara. La différence étant donc dans la veine de levure. Ici une Bavarian weizen. Couleur abricoté orangé, avec beaucoup de particules en suspension. Bulles moyennes très disséminées. Mousse blanc beige qui vient à 2 mm stable. Arômes sur un fantastique ensemble houblon/fruits blancs/levure/céréales, plutôt fruité. 1ère bouche soyeuse avec une prise de caractère sur du malt clair et houblon bien tranchant. Arrière-bouche d’une amertume dense et bien précise. 2ème sur un très bel équilibre malt/houblon. Arrière-bouche sur des épices, dont le poivre vert du moulin. 3ème au remarquable ensemble très riche, complexe fruit/bois blanc. Arrière-bouche bien dense et fraîche à la fois. La longueur développe encore le registre, avec quelques fleurs et de la haie vive. Les jambes sont denses et serrées. La levure est de classe, un rien salée. L’alcool est parfait pour révéler tout le potentiel, et garder l’amertume d’attaque. La finale est de toute beauté. CONCLUSION : une très grande ipa, dégustée dans un verre ipa de la côte belge, et qui donne toutes ses lettres de noblesse au genre, et par effet indirect, à la levure bavaroise.

Flaska. Mörkgul med ett medelstort vitt skum. Dofter av malt, jäst och citrus. Smakinslag av jäst, gräs, malt och banan. Torr munkänsla. Snygg beska.

oh6gdx (26482) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 27, 2014
Bottled. ORangeish golden colour with a mediumsized creamy white head. Aroma clashes to a spicy fruitiness with some grassy ntoes as well. Flavour is toffee, spices, citrus, grass and some herbs. The bitterness and yeast isn’t the best combination...

Alengrin (5235) - BELGIUM - NOV 16, 2014
The second beer tasted from this series and side by side with the three others. Shows a somewhat better head retention and deeper orange to amberish colour than the others. Aroma and taste indeed reflect the classic banana- and clove-like flavours we are used to from Hefeweizen, but is less strong and less perfumey than the American Ale version; this came out as the second best of the series to me. In terms of style: let’s be serious here, this is not a Hefeweizen at all, this is an American pale ale fermented with Hefeweizen yeast, but with the same long, dry, perfumey and citrussy hoppiness in the finish as most other APAs.
