COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
OIBF Collaboration Brew: The idea for our collab with Upright (Portland, Oregon) started with the legendary album ‘Donuts’ by Jay Dee. Using water, malt, hops and yeast we wanted to create a candy like, donutty beer. The malt bill was about getting bready, dough-like flavours, so we used some wheat, Munchener malt and Biscuit malt. In the kettle we added Candy syrup and Goldings hops and in the hopback there were more Goldings and Mosiac hops to get some candy-like flavours. Fermented with a Belgian yeast strain for some bubblegum and even more candy-like flavor.

TrefwoordPunk (1302) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - AUG 8, 2017
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a clear copper to amber with a medium to big white head and an aroma of lollipops, banana, belgian yeast, ripe fruits, white grapes, spices, sweet malts, toffee, peach and cookies. The taste is at least medium sweet with a small to medium body and a pretty long lasting fruity bitter finish.

MrHangover (4693) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2017
Bottle. Pours a massively overcarbonated golden yellow beer with a massive white head on top. Aroma has lots of Belgian yeast going on, bready notes, earthy and herbal hoppyness. Flavor is sweet and boasts lots of kandi sugar notes, zesty touches and lots of dampy yeasty flavors. Way too much carbonation in this one though, off balance and a bit weird.

Aroma is sweet en citrus, this comes back in the taste. Too sweet. Too much carbonation. Some yeast. This beer is not in balance.

R4N5H (1321) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 15, 2017
33cl bottle (from the collaboration box of 6) picked up at Oedipus Brewing and enjoyed at home on 14-Jul-2017. Hazy pale golden amber with a medium sized white head. Aroma of sweet malt, Belgian yeast and hops. Medium body and carbonation. Taste of bread, candy sugar and Belgian yeast. Light bittersweetness with a decent hop profile.

33cl Bottle from Vonk. Hazy golden orange colour, enormous white head. Aroma of yeasty fruity esters, light spicy. Flavour is light malty, fruity, some citrus, light spicy, soft bitter finish. Light bodied, fizzy. Not the best of the series.

Gangstergafje (1273) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2017
25-05-2017; fles; at home (bought at Bier&zO in Rotterdam, The Netherlands). The looks of the beer are nice. The color of the beer is a nice light golden amber. The beer has a lovely cloudiness, but it is not 100% cloudy. You can still see silhouettes trough the beer. Not bad. On top of the beer a nice thick layer of soft but rough crispy white foam is formed. The bulk of the foam collapses, leaving a nice soft drape. Not bad. The smell of the beer is nice. It has a sweet candy like smell, but also contains some nice fresh notes. I smell some doughy malts, some clear Belgian yeast aroma’s giving some fruity sweets, and some nice fruity hops. Quite refreshing. The taste is also very nice. I get the donut thing. Thera are some doughy yeast flavours, some fruity hops, giving nice bitters, and some sweet yeast touches. It is well balanced, and contains some nice sweet candy like things, and also some nice fruity touches. Nice. The palate of the beer is good. Nice medium body, smooth beer, and a nice finish with some hoppy bitters and fruits. Also some nice malts. I really like this beer. The succeeded to produce the beer they wanted to produce, at least, in my eyes they did. Lovey.
