Fruity nose and some unidentifiable notes. Soft, diacetyl body with mango, canteloupe and light pear juice. Strange beer, I’m not sure what to make of it.

yngwie (17168) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 9, 2016
On tap at Mondial de la bière Montréal 2015. It’s an unclear, amber colored beer topped by a small offwhite head leaving some lacing. Biscuity malts, hay, grass, pinecones and a generic fruityness in the aroma. It’s fullbodied, smooth and nicely carbonated, with a little malty, bready touch in the back of the flavor. Hay, grass and pine cones too, with a subtle bitterness. Long malty and lightly fruity finish. A bit malty this one but nice indeed. Especially love the mouthfeel. 150611
