Brewski x Cycle 50 States Of Freedom

Brewery: Brewski x Cycle Brewing
Country: Sweden
ABV: 4%
Style: German Berliner Weisse
Other Notes: Berliner Weisse with Lime. Only real fruit inside!

Brewer Description: (from bottle) When our dear beloved friends from Cycle – St. Pete, Murcia – stepped into our brewery for the first time, we knew that this relationship would turn into magical and wonderful beers in a heartbeat. Together we poured the Florida sun, the breath of Swedish nature and a shitload of lime into this bottle. The result is a very refreshing and smooth brew with hints of freedom, motorized scooters and bald eagles, all perfectly balanced for you to enjoy on a warm summer day.

Brewski Red Robot DIPA

Brewery: Brewski
Country: Sweden
ABV: 7.5%
Style: American Double IPA
Other Notes: Double India Pale Ale. Only real fruit inside!

Brewer Description: (from bottle) Charming and cute as they are, the capabilities and intelligence of “emotional” robots are still very limited. They don’t have feelings and are simply programmed to detect emotions and respond accordingly. But things are set to change very rapidly and they just learned how to give robot hugs. So lets enjoy a hug from this little red robot with lots of love, passionfruit and pineapple.

Intro: A 330ml bottle with a best before date of 16th May 2019, ‘B6 robotbin’. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A hazy yellow orange colour with a one finger white head that had decent retention and left some lacing.
Aroma: Pineapple, melon, mango and pine with hints of orange rind and zest.
Taste: Grapefruit and underripe fresh orange juice with touches of mango and pine resin.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This was quite good, but I didn’t really get any of the passionfruit or pineapple that was supposedly there in the taste. There was a lot more citrus that the expected tropical fruits.

Taste: Lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Slightly unripe mango, grapefruit rind and zest and hints of grass.
