courtesy of Antonio Rey - hazy amber beer with a long lasting pale beige foam; aroma of berries and candied caramel; a good malt body; sweet (mainly) and sour (a bit), fizzy; pretty much residual sweetness and more berry-like fruityness and caramel maltiness as well in the finish miquelcrush (2053) - Granollers, SPAIN - APR 25, 2014
Cervesa molt suau, pel meu gust massa carbonatada.
Cerveza muy suave, por mi gusto demasiado carbonatada. Ungstrup (38249) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2013
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of brettanomyces, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of hops, straw, brett, and caramel, leading to a dry finish. Thanks yespr for sharing. Papsoe (25059) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2013

Grifo. Vaso de 1/2pt. Saboreada varias veces. Color latón bruñido y apariencia velada. Espuma blanca que deja una persistente y fina capa en la superficie y copos en las paredes. Aromas herbales y florales, trazos de heno y leve albaricoque maduro. Entrada de malteado moderado bien equilibrada por los lúpulos. Cuerpo medio y carbonatación suave a moderada. Sutil astringencia en el intermedio. Final amargo y seco. Refrescante y de muy fácil asimilación.
On-tap. 1/2pt Glass. Enjoyed many times. Burnish brass color, veiled appearance. White froth leaves a lasting thin layer on top & spots on sides. Floral & herbal aromas, hints of hay & slight ripe apricot hues to the nose. Mild malty upfront is very well balanced y hops. Medium body. Soft to moderate carbonation. Subtle astringency in the middle. Dry bitter finish. Refreshing & easy drinkable.

My Bottom Line :
Beautifully restrained brettanomyces funk still dominates this puzzling brew’s subtle flavor profile, as the frothy, dry mouthfeel leads to discreet tropical fruit and grain.
Further Personal Perceptions :
-There is plenty of foam in the tulip atop the hazy amber (the yeast pour destroys the appearance though, be careful).
-The finish is rather quiet. Too much so to retain the level of flavor impact from aroma to aftertaste.
-The troical fruit angles resemble peach and mango.
-This is like a more subtle version of Jolly Pumpkin’s Bam Biere, I kid you not.
-The label claims this is a ’rural’ brew, and that it is an old Spanish style... Which might point to wild yeast being used, right? In any case, if it was deliberately used, its parcimony and elegance are very refreshing. If not, well it was a deliciously quenching mistake!
