Inbreak (5126) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - SEP 26, 2016
24.09.2016, tap (2015 vintage) @ Borefts:
Tiny bubbly shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly sour-ish grainy, soda powder, unripe berries, grain, minerals, oak, grass, hints of popcorn. Taste is slightly sweet sour-ish grassy, weeds, minerals, oak, grain, sour fruits, fruit stones, grass, hay, unripe berries, bark, mild vinegar. Medium bitterness, slightly dry and harsh mineraly mouthfeel. Fair enough, too fresh I guess.

750 mL bottle shared by ebone1988. 2011 vintage. The pour is a dark orange cold with a thinner white ring of head and a cores spots of lace. The aroma is good. There is a light sourness and a great citrus peel. The flavor is similar. There is a slightly awkward acidic sweetness on the flavor. Its decent, but light. There is a good bit of oakiness and a light sweet light fruit. The sourness is light and balanced. The mouth feel is a little syrupy with a nice carbonation and a lingeringly sweet fruit. Its sweet and lightly sour. Not too shabby. Its very plain though.
