Belgian IPA
A golden coloured IPA with a slight haze. A strong aroma of banana and cloves with a vibrant flavour of banana and melon. The beer has a very slight acidity from the Belgian yeast and a lasting bitterness.
Fladda Rock’N’Roll is brewed to the same recipe as fladda rock with one big difference, in this beer we have used a Belgian yeast. It is often said that the yeast makes up 20% of the flavour in a beer so we wanted to see how far we could push that. We brought in a special Belgian wheat beer yeast and added it to the brew. The results are superb and give the beer a completely different flavour profile.
Try alongside Fladda Rock for a comparison in taste between the two yeasts.

Draft @ Borefts. Aroma has loads of fruity notes from the yeast, some hop too, light caramel malt note. Flavour is first malty caramel, then fruity notes from the hops, light bitterness. Nice.

Palme (4812) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 11, 2014
From cask @ Borefts 2013. A deep blurry golden one with a surprisingly lively white sidesticking head. Smells of Belgian saison yeast and a nice citrus touch. Wet leafs, apricots, some hay and a little bit of ginger makes up the aroma. Not bad. Soft oily in the mouth with a soft prickling carbonation level. Bitter citrus zest, light grapefruit, something sweet almost honey like and a little bit of dry hay in the finish and aftertaste. 28.09.2013

jmgreenuk (9709) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 29, 2013
Cask at the Southampton Arms. Poured a hazy light amber with a frothy long lasting head. The flavour is medium to weak bitter with a hoppy aromatic flowery palate and a short bitter finish. Light bodied with average carbonation.

kermis (14191) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 29, 2013
Cask at the Southampton Arms, London. Pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma of light grapefruit, fruity and grassy hops. Flavour is light sweet and moderate to heavy bitter. Light medium bodied with soft carbonation.

Christian (13755) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2013
Borefts Beer Festival 2013. Hazy golden with a small white head. Fruity aroma with banana, peach and spices. Fruity sweet flavour with banana, and some phenolic yeasty notes. Quite bitter, hoppy finish. Doesn’t have the clean beauty of the regular Fladda golden ale.

ladnewton (2001) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2013
Cask at the Southampton Arms, London on 19th December 2013. Cloudy yellow with diminishing, white lacing foam. Yeasty tangy citric aromas. Grapefruit and orange tang in-mouth with burst of grassiness followed by tangy citric finish with spicy notes on a zingy mouthfeel. Plenty of body. Nice chunky Belgian ale.

imdownthepub (14972) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2013
Cask conditioned at The Craft Beer Co. Clerkenwell, London. Hazy gold with slight head. There is a strawberry bubblegum flavour at the start of this leading to a gooseberry and seaweed note, caramel then perfume. Very odd.

Martinus (4681) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2013
Golden colour, white head. Aroma of tropical fruits, light banana. Bitter flavour, banana, sweeter than the regular Fladda Rock. Quite thin body, bitter hoppy finish. More banana, for the rest quite similar to the regular Fladda Rock. Interesting to see the differences between an English yeast and an Belgian yeast.
(From draught @ BBF V, 2013)
