Old notes. Draught at Wirströms 7/2-15.
App: Crystal clear deep golden with one finger thick off white foam that stains the glass.
Aroma: Sweet honey wheat crackers with lychee passion fruit, some oranges plus grass and hay. Fresh and hoppy. I smell some sulphur (fart) as well but I actually think it’s the pub itself, ah yes it is. Nice.
Taste: That typical sweet crystal/hop syrup sweetness I get so often with Lagunitas beers that reminds of candi sugar (one of the importers say it’s the hop extract Lagunitas use), slight toasty honey wheat crackers here also, grapefruit and lychee, some iron like minerals. Prominent but laid back bitterness of grass and grapefruit peel.
Palate: Medium bodied with soft tickling carbonation and slightly oily texture.
Overall: A nice easy going beer with some sweetness. Not so "in your face" with the wheat, but more IPA with a twist like. Summer beer.

A fresh nose with a lot of malty notes and some weak wheat. Taste of malt also with discrete wheat present and some nice hops to round it up. Very agreeable and easy drinking.

Charm är att få svaret ja utan att ha ställt någon bestämd fråga. Lagunitas Fusion XXV har vunnit över mig innan jag ens vet vad det är jag ska ta ställning till. Det är bara att falla rätt in i denna förtrollade värld av sublima sinnesrörelser och upplösas i ren extas. Pärleporten står på vid gavel medan Sankte Per sitter och fyllehickar på ett moln. Laguntias är universallösningen för all skit som kan fastna på livets yta. Skinande rent på både in- och utsida efter riklig applicering via mun-stycket. Dokumenterad effekt.

Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, sweetness, citricness, grapefruit, malts and bittterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A good pale ale with fruity hops.
