UPDATED: MAR 25, 2017 Ein außergewöhnlich ledriger Frischholzsmell ist das exorbitante Erkennungsmerkmal dieses gelungen Pale Ales. Hinter dem Fass sicherlich auch noch ein paar grasy Hopdüfte, aber das nur marginal. Der Trunk überraschend unaufgeregt. A little bit sweety, malty & extra rund. Aprikose, Peach und Waldhonigflavours haben leichtes Spiel. Ich schnupper nochmal ☺ .0,2/6€. BREWDOG BAR BERLIN. FAT. Svesse (8615) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2017
(Draught at Beer Temple, Amsterdam, 22 Feb 2017) Red colour with frothy, pink head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, sour fruit, beetroot and red berries. Malty, hoppy taste with red fruit, pink grapefruit, beetroot, orange peel and a balanced citric bitterness. More than medium body, with a certain sweetness. Fairly vegetal and quite odd, but fresh and tasty. Nice one.

On tap at Armakeggon 2016. The beetroot colour is striking but the mild flavour it gives is pretty cool. Leighton (21494) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2016
Bottle shared at Craft Beer Co. Islington - London. Many thanks to Fergie for this treat. Lovely appearance: pours clear purple with a frothy, pink head. Muted aroma, faintly funky, with notes of berries. Light to medium sweet flavour with some bread, creamy malts, impressions of berries. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Moderately sweet to finish, with more bread. Eh, not much to it, really. But it’s drinkable enough.
