A super-hoppy sensation! Surprisingly palatable once you get over the initial massive hit of hops. A lovely complex flavour. A winner ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Werckmeister (2512) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - FEB 19, 2016
0,5l bottle at home shared by Saeglopur, big thanks. Sticker from the importer says BB 30/06/2016. BB from the brewery (tiny stamp on the bottle neck) says 03/02/2016. amber quite hazy color, small white head. smells of pines, sweetness, some sweet herbs, citric notes, exotic fruits. full body, soft carbonation, slick mouthfeel. tastes citric, some lemon grass, also rather watery, no pines, bit of resin. lightly bitter with notes of resin and some citric notes. lovely smell, but taste is way too simple. bit of a cheat really that the bottle has two bb-dates.

Saeglopur (1855) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - FEB 19, 2016
500 ml bottle from BeerLovers Vienna, bb 03/02/2016.
Amber-orange, hazy body, with a medium, creamy, off-white head.
Aroma of biscuit, orange, citrus, pine, some lychee and some more tropical fruits.
Tastes of pine, citrus, orange, some passion fruit, biscuit, some honey.
Medium, creamy mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes bitter, dry, piney, zesty, a bit alcohol warming, fruity, a bit sweet malty.

Very nice. Not so fresh anymore, but still with some nice piney notes and subtle tropical fruits. Alcohol is noticeable, but drinks quite smooth, with a very good balance. Enjoyable DIPA, but this is propably much better when fresh.
