A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Herevana – Bootleg – Pea-Knuckle-LADA

Bootleg Pea-Knuckle-LADA is a White Stout, A White Pastry Stout (it’s flavoured). This is the lead up to the nights feat of Ribs. Bootleg have had some cracking beers lately and I’m quite keen to try this. I’m quite keen to try a lot more of the Bootleg beers truth be told.

Bootleg Brewery Ltd make the Bootleg Pea-Knuckle-LADA in the ‘Tron – 🇳🇿 Hamilton, New Zealand, and it is in the style that is a Stout – Flavored / Pastry  with an ABV of  6.0% and with   20 IBU

They have this quite quirky top top crown cap that I find oddly appealing. And it’s a White Stout. They’re always interesting. And it’s a pastry Stout. What could go wrong?

Bottle opens with a hiss, and the aroma is not what I expected from a Stout, it’s more an Ale. Pour of our is more an Ale than a Stout, where you might expect it to be dark/black, but it sits lovely in the glass, the head settles to a film atop.

If you’re not into health food..

The aroma gets more lime about it, and the initial taste, we;; that’s somewhat unexpected and unusual. It seems to many things, some of which are familiar but then it also seems to miss the mark in other bits. A lovely beer though, the flavours are very bright and enjoyable and this isa light as drinks go, it’s not heavy, thick and over-bittered.

But rum, coconut, and pineapple? yeah, Na. I didn’t;t honestly expect any of that, but I thought it would have more coconut than I can find, and I get more lime than pineapple. Perhaps it’s a local thing. What happens though is that it warms slightly in the glass, and it really begins to grow into itself and come alive.

It’s become somewhat a really refreshing beer that has a quirk but it’s not quirky, I get more pineapple, or that heady deep pineapple vibe. It’s a yes from me.

The Pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 8 on the arbitrary number scale. It’s many things that don’t seem to fit together and they don’t at first. but it settles up into a quite lovely beer.

Herevana beers are those I drink at home, I’m not at some beer festival, like, for instance, Beervana, but am just in my kitchen, usually, dining room table, sometimes, or outside, occasionally, where I can take an average picture and write in real time about the beer that I’ve invested in, both in a monetary and emotional way.
