Hello, beer tasters! 🍻 😎 🍻
What's going on? Nothing special, I watched the Olympics today and I am very proud. Slovenia won two medals, gold, and bronze in women's ski jumping. Great!
I wonder what kind of beer they are drinking over there in Beijing now that they are celebrating?
Since today is #beersaturday I will celebrate too!
I have two beers here that I'd love to taste. Also for the medals. :) 😁
Brewed by microbrewery BrauSchneider e.U., Schiltern bei Langenlois, Austria.
Bottle, 0.33 l, alcohol 5.0% ABV, 25 IBU. It's a Helles style, which means that it's clean, malty, medium yellow color with a smooth grainy malty flavor and a dry finish.
Master brewers say:
Helles is a light, bottom-fermented full beer brewed from a blend of Vienna and Pilsner malts. A slightly higher residual extract value and mild, aromatic hopping with the Tettnanger and Saazer varieties make it particularly accessible. Cheers!
OK. Cheers! :)
It's yellow-to-gold color, with large and stable foam. It has no particular smell other than malty.
The sip goes down the throat smoothly, there is malt sweetness, discreet citrus, a little spicy, the hop bitterness is hardly noticeable, only in the aftertaste it's present but for a very short time.
The beer is fresh and drinkable, still quite fine. Nothing wrong with it, but I didn't taste any surpluses either.
Average, a shade better than standard industrial beers but nothing special. I think I'll forget it quickly.
Beer Meme? Yes, please :)
Pelicon Veliki IPA
Brewewd by Pelicon brewery, Ajdovščina, Slovenia. Ratebeer says about them:
Brewer-led Craft Brewery Awarded by RateBeer.com and World Beer Idol.
Bottle, 0.5 l, alcohol 10.0% ABV. Unfiltered, cloudy, and unpasteurized.
The label says it is a triple IPA, which means that is intensely hoppy, very strong with alcohol, and outrageous amounts of hop flavor, malt, and bitterness.
Ugh, that is something extraordinary seems to me.
And what do Master brewers say?
The rich, candy body is supported by a huge amount of hops, which we added in the form of palletized cryo powder. The beer is extremely rounded, with the sweetness balancing the hops well and the bitterness being soapy and pleasant, intensifying slightly with each sip and continuing into a long aftertaste. About the fruit basket that awaits you in the sip and the "ten percent" alcohol that it hides all too well. Careful, this is one of the strongest Slovenian brews!
They've been brewing this beer since 2019. So where have I been so far?
Beer is hazy and golden in color, the foam is creamy and disappears quickly. As soon as I opened it, I smelled citrus and that aroma of lemon and lime lingers for a long time.
The sip goes down the throat quite smoothly, the pronounced sweetness is balanced by the bitterness of the hops and the tropical flavors. There is no alcohol at all at the beginning, only later in the aftertaste does it come through, with the bitterness of the hops in the background.
A very tasty and harmonious beer, but I have to admit that I have no experience with such beers. The flavors and aromas are very strong and the alcohol comes later. It's all very well balanced, but I can't imagine what it would be like to drink three or four in one evening? Maybe I should try this too?
I'll put it in the fridge. Just in case. 😁
