The partner is so happy to show me 2 cans of IPA from Aldi. “Look, I have IPA, too.”. “Yours costs average 5 euros each, guess how much this costs?” “90 cents!”
Aldi IPA brewed by Schultenbräu. 6% “session” IPA? Have to inhale hard to smell something. Faint smell of orange. Light bitter and dry. Watery. Still, better than the worthless Ukrainian (D)IPA I got last time for much, much more.
From Amsterdam. Riwaka DDH Session IPA. Looks nice and hazy but don’t expect much in a session IPA. I just wanted to check out the New Zealand hop riwaka. Has a faint taste of pineapple but not sure if it comes from the riwaka.
Mafiosa Cevejaria Valinhos Sour Guava (Brazil). A sour ale with guava (a fruit widely grown in the city) and pitaya, which added colour to the beer. It is a light sour, very dry and with a very striking colour, intense aroma of ripe guava. In the mouth, it continues with the guava very present, with a touch that refers to the peel of the fruit. Its very dry finish and good carbonation together with the profile of the chosen yeast bring a wine and super refreshing touch to the beer.
That’s the descriptions in Portuguese. Strangely, I enjoyed drinking this sour beer. The pastel colour is nice and matches my squashes in the photo. (The squashes are all gone by now)
