Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours turbid caramel with frothy, off-white head. Nose is an interesting mix of fruity hops, spicy florals, white pepper. Tastes hoppy, extremely floral, with some fruitiness. I love oil of bergamot/Earl Grey tea, and this one excels.

ALIBALI (1558) - Kiel, GERMANY - MAR 22, 2017
Der Earl Grey bringt anscheinend Minze & belgische Kruterhefe ins Spiel. Definitv mal wieder ein IPA Grenzgnger. Dem Tripelsmell folgt ein schn angesweeteter Malzbodytrunk mit einem leicht aprikosenfruchtigen Backdrop. Very easy to Schlrf. My first YEASTIE Brew and i like it 😀. Das Finish ist spicey, hoppy & schn lang. Wohlwollend, knnte man sagen ;). 0,33l CAN aus Haarlem, NL. Elegant & grazis 👌.
