Svesse (8777) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - OCT 8, 2017
(Bottle) Amber colour, slightly hazy, with big frothy off-white head. Malty, hoppy nose with orange, apricots, crisp-bread, hay, spicy yeast and floral hops. Malty, hoppy taste with notes of citrus, grapefruit, apricots, rye bread, hay, some spicy yeast and a generous citric bitterness in the finish. Medium body, quite dry. Tasty and well balanced, with a gentle saison character and fresh hops. Nice one.

Don't know how this has such a high rating. Very muddled and clashing flavours, subtle funk with stale caramel being most dominant. Slightly tart, bitter finish. A messy beer

Doft av aprikos och tropsik frukt, frisk och syrlig. Smaken har även en del karamell och en tydlig beska.

S: Karamelzoet, licht tropisch fruitig en een lichte citrusbitterheid. Weinig bitterheid en geen van de aangekondigde funky flavours te bekennen. M: Doordrinker met medium carbonatie.

dorain (647) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUN 4, 2017
Aus der Flasche 2017-04 getrunken. Dieses IPA ohne Frucht aber dafür mit einer Bauernhofnote wird recht schnell immer bitterer. Also schnell mit einen großen Schluck runter damit. Bääh! Du kommst mir nicht noch mal ins Glas. Das nächste Bier Bitte schnell!

Paggio (24) - ITALY - MAY 28, 2017
Bottiglia 0,33 imbottigliata 4 mesi fa. Rame/aranciocpn schiuma quasi assente. A causa della giocane età al naso prevale l’agrumato e il fruttato dei luppoli con un lieve sentore di cantina in sottofondo. Intrigante l’evoluzione gustativa: lieve dolcezza iniziale che vira presto all’acido per poi lasciare spazio all’amaro quando la birra va giú. Invecchiando sicuramente cambierà

Alengrin (5718) - BELGIUM - MAY 24, 2017
Collab of Magic Rock with Lervig, a ’farmhouse IPA’ so something in between a ’wild beer’ and an IPA, bottle of about four months old. Off-white, coarse, rather loose head, quickly reduced to a thin rim of irregular bubbles and eventually to virtually nothing, on a misty pale orange blonde beer with vague olive greenish tinge near the top and quite large bubbles rising up, initially quite fiercely so but quickly calming down - it seems the carbon dioxide is not all too well bound here. Aroma of old moldy oranges, sweet ripe cantaloupe, goat cheese, fermenting apples, old dried ginger, sweaty leather, pear peel, damp straw, mango juice, some of the wryness of grape seeds, olive oil, unripe peaches, dusty haystack, pond water, moist jute bags, gooseberries, white pepper - in all, indeed an attractive mixture of New World, even slightly dank hoppiness and ’wild’ Bretty effects developing already. Fruity, estery onset, medium sparkling with a minerally side note, lots of crisp peach and red apple freshness, barely sweet though, with a soft and non-acidic, typically Brett-induced baseline sourishness reminiscent of gooseberries and raw rhubarb; supple, light mouthfeel. Dryish grainy and lightly bready malt backbone in the middle phase, carbonation stille tingling a bit on the sides of the tongue with a light fizziness to it but subtly so and in ’small’ bubbles, crisp but outspokenly fruity apple peel and sour berry impressions and growing towards a dry, somewhat wry, nicely bittering finish, where the hops establish a long, resinous, deeply bittering effect way down to the throat as well as some uplifting citrusy aromas retronasally, mixing with an equally proportioned Brett effect, dry and hayish, with some old cloth- and old wrinkled fruit peel notes; more breadiness in the end too as the sediment goes in. A deep, earthy, dried wormwood-like bitterness lingers after swallowing, with still those crisp, mildly tart fruity side notes. Too bad for the lack of head, quickly fizzing away like the ’head’ on a cola, but other than that a very enjoyable, ’rural’ feeling beer delivering exactly what it promises: a compromise between crisp, dry ’Bretted’ saison on the one hand and a a juicy, firmly bittering, citrusy IPA on the other hand. This combination works fine for me and suits a warm spring day like this perfectly - but it is a trusty combination in the end, of course, thinking of the legendary Orval trappist, which - though altogether very different from this one - also links robust hopping and dry-hopping (originally taken from English ale traditions) with a ’wild’ Brettanomyces refermentation, at least in its heydays. In that respect, this modern craft beer concept of Anglo-Saxon ’farmhouse IPA’ is far less ’exotic’ to a Belgian-raised palate like mine. In all, a very juicy, appetizing, interesting beer, which will doubtlessly differ considerably from age to age - with some cellaring, this will probably evolve parallel to indeed Orval, as the hop aromas fade and the Brett continues to eat sugars unpalatable to cultured yeast, releasing its own array of ’animalistic’ or barnyard-like, but also much more fruity-estery aromas.

Tart, lemony, hoppy and sour, golden with a good white head, light body, quite fizzy, more hops in the taste, something that remember me peach, again sour and tart in the final with, funky and very easy to drink...very good.
