A 330ml bottle with a BB of July 2016. Picked up just the other day from Trembling Madness in York. The 2014 edition of this brew is hopped with Saaz and Styrian Goldings, followed by dry-hopping with Mosaic. Sounds promising...
Poured into a Duvel tulip. Bottle conditioned. A bright golden hue with faint haze and plentiful carbonation. Yields a massive head of creamy white foam that lasts for a few minutes before settling as a thick surface layer. Nice lacing. Aroma of fruity hops and yeast esters, with hints of tropical fruits, mild citrus, grass/hay, subtle spice, earthy yeast, light malt and faint stewed hops. A twinge of buttery diacetyl in the background - surprising for a live beer. Pretty good.
Tastes of fruity aromatic hops and yeast esters, with a dry, spicy finish. Notes of tropical fruits, lime, citrus, grass/hay, mild spice, earthy yeast, subtle malt and stewed hops. A touch of diacetyl lurks in the background along with a warming hint of booze. Well-attenuated, followed by a mild, spicy bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, tingly and dry, with pleasant carbonation and good body. Quite astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of yeast esters, fruity aromatic hops and stewed leaves.
Mmmm - lovely. Looks great, while the aroma and flavour have a satisfying blend of fruity hops and yeast esters. It retains the essence of the original yet the hops add something extra. The only disagreeable note is the diacetyl, which is sufficient to be noticeable. Pleasant body. Another solid version of this beer - well worth sampling if you have the chance.
