COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Nordic Lean in collaboration with Stillwater Artisanal is a Purple IPA that’s been 100% fermented with Brettanomyces c. and dry-hopped with Pacific Gem and Centennial. How did we purp it? A combination of blueberry, blackberry and black currant juices. It’s tangy, hoppy, juicy and funky. This unique beer is beautiful, nice and a little fucked up, just like us.

dorain (396) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 22, 2017
Aus der Flasche am 2017-02 getrunken. Und noch ein gepimptes Bier. In dem Fall ein IPA was mit Heidelbeeren, Brombeeren und schwarzen Johannisbeersaft und dann noch mit Brettanomyces fermentiert wurde. Hier bleibt der IPA Charakter stehen und die Brett bzw, die Früchte runden das Ding ab. Ein feines Sommerbier.

Saeglopur (2204) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - JUN 10, 2017
330 ml bottle from Biervana, Munich, bottled 13/01/17.
Ruby, hazy body, with a medium, fluffy, lacing, light pink head.
Aroma of sweet-sour berries, grapefruit, quite a lot of herbal notes at the start, that give way to Brett more and more though, as the beer warms up.
Tastes of sour berries, grapefruit, Brett, lemongrass, some lemon candy, subtle tropical fruits.
Medium, slick mouthfeel, with a lively carbonation.
Finishes dry, Bretty, moderate bitter, a bit sour, fruity, with berries and lemon zest.

Nice one. The nose is a bit weird initially, with herbal notes I don’t like much, but gets better as the beer breaths and warms up a bit. Taste is better from start, with lots of sour berries and Brett, but feels a bit unbalanced, could be smoother. Overall good beer, but I was expecting even a bit more.

jamiemac87 (194) - Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2017
Pours deep purple with a decent, tinged head. Fruit punnet aroma. Taste is brett, blackcurrant and blackberry with a bitter streak. Pleasant enough, although cannot really be considered an IPA.

3.6
LazyPyro (1281) - Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2017
330ml bottle. Pours a cloudy purple colour with a small head, also tinted purple. Aroma: tart dark berry fruits, blackberries. Taste: predominantly berries, mostly blackberry, some general hoppiness, lightly acidic, sweet, the finish is moderately bitter. Medium body and carbonation, oily texture. Interesting one. I quite liked it but didn’t realise it was going to be this fruity, it’s much more a fruit beer than an IPA... good one though.
