Kelburn Brewery Carte Blanche (5%)

Cart BlancheWith an apple juice and orange marmalade smell, this is a round and voluptuous beer with plenty of bite.
Beginning with a bruised apple fruitiness, you are given a good digestive biscuit and honey malt with just a dab of tamarind tartness at the edges.
The hops are spiky and resinous, woody hazel and bitter dandelion, and mown lawn pithiness.
As you get into Carte Blanche the warmth of the alcohol digs in and the orchard fruit body begins to take hold.
But just before it gets too much there’s a good sharp bitterness that wipes you clean ready for the next mouthful.
Very good indeed.

    FSP, you just don’t know how to read a fucken LOR. This was obvluosiy meant as an allegorical comment on Bob’s inability to make truly creative advances. When he walks through the landscape of scientific discovery, he always keeps his path close to the known methodological and theoretical constructs (i.e., the Bavarian breweries), rather than having the courage and fortitude to explore unkown territory and make novel discoveries. Bob only finds what he already knows he is looking for.
