Zlotta (2516) - Hagen, GERMANY - JAN 5, 2017
Sampled from tap at Craft Beer Corner. Sweetish, funky and fruity-grassy aroma of lemon, cat pee, mango, honey and some orange. Slightly bitter, grassy-fruity and quite funky taste of lemon, orange, cat pee, some honey and a bit of sauerkraut, followed by a short, moderately dry-bitter, slightly grassy finish. Medium body, slightly creamy and a bit effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice!

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, orange, bread, hops, citrus and brettanomyces.

Appearance:
Turbid/opaque amber/orange beer with slight yeast and with a slight/medium off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel and orange; ends slightly bitter, dry and sour with bread, hops, citrus and brettanomyces.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. More of a Belgian ale than an IPA thanks to that dominating brettanomyces. Great appearance and palate however.

Rough around the edges but I guess thats the point. The brett is quite pronounced. A few sour notes in there against a hoppy bitterness tasting of citrus.

Towey1989 (2119) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2016
Keg at The Earl Grey Inn, Leek. A slightly hazy pale amber colour with a thin white head. Aroma of lemon, orange, some grapefruit, mango, slight Brett, yeast and subtle grassy hops. Taste of lemon, orange, mango, some grapefruit, slight wheat, Brett and subtle spicy, grassy hops. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A dry, slightly funky, citrus and grassy hop bitterness in the finish. A fresh and citrusy IPA with a spicy, yeasty finish. Packs a lot of flavour, just doesnt last long. Good overall, could be better.

Honey yellow cloudy. Tropical fruit, delicate yeast to smell. Also peppermint or licorice. Peppery. Medium body. The flavour is fairly bitter. I wish it were fruitier and yeastier. Still good

imdownthepub (13713) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 17, 2016
Bottled, 330ml from Ship in a Bottle, Liverpool. Hazy amber to gold with white head. Initially quite a yeasty beer, bready dough with a banana, Belgian type background. The hops than become more dominant, grapefruit, pithy then pineapple type flavours with a resinous hint. Some harshness but it is aimed at that. Good beer.
