New ISA from Totem, missed it at Wieze Bierfestival but fortunately got a second chance at Zythos Bierfestival. Moussy, snow white, stable head on a hazy straw blonde beer with olive greenish hue. Aroma of yellow grapefruit, green kiwi, pine resin, bread crust, raw pineapple, wormwood leaves, lime peel. Fruity, vivid onset, pineapple and passion fruit notes, softish carbo, bit resiny mouthfeel, lightly bready basis, soapy with a starfruit-like hint, cereally way down, something slightly metallic but feeling natural (as in raw spinach leaves), long and very aromatic hoppy finish, a tad ’weedy’, grapefruity and piney with a soft, refined but adequate bitterness; some lingering soapiness. Feels full-bodied especially for a beer that does not even reach 3% ABV and teems with lovely ’new’ hop aromas - exactly how a top notch session IPA should be. Cheers to Klaas and Liesbeth!
F: thin, white, quick gone. C: blonde to gold, hazy. A: fruity, tropical fruits, a bit of passion fruits, tangerine hoppy. T: fruity, malty, earthy, peach, grapefruits, tangerine, medium to full body very interesting for 2,9%, medium carbonation, good, enjoyed, thanks to tderoeck and kraddel for sharing beers today! Sampled from tap @ ZBF 2017 Leuven.
Thank you for sharing German speaking RB Crew! Sampled draft @ ZBF 2017. Hazy orange, little head. Nose is very big on tropical fruits, mango, mandarin, fresh, slightly raw hop. Taste is nice, more green hop tasting than the fruity nose, bitter, strongly so with green mango & pine,... Body is surprisingly rich, creamy, very nice. Very nice beer even if you disregard the ABV, even more impressive if you keep it in mind.
