Thanks to Blake for sharing! Poured cloudy, straw golden with a short off-white head. The aroma picked up honey and pils malts topped by a hefty floral presence.. some banana and wet, meaty bread too.. came back to flowers on the back of the nose. The flavor opened tart and bitter, with catty and floral notes.. aged honeysuckle and bready support.. kaffir lime and salty notes joined flowers on the finish.. very interesting and different. Lower-carbonation on the palate, and a touch slick.. this was some strange brew, but I’d hit it again. _angst_ (5008) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 13, 2012
