Vote Sepp

Rating: 3.3

You’ve guessed it, another limited release from Brewdog and this one going back to the the start of the summer, it was released to coincide with the 2014 World Cup 2014 in Brazil and in honour of FIFA dictator Sepp Blatter as well as his questionable business ethics. It was a beer that I naturally wanted to try, it will be my 76th Brewdog beer after all but I couldn’t justify an order on the Brewdog website for this beer alone, the only reason I never got a bottle in the end was because when I finally did get round to placing an order it was sold out. In the end I managed to find a bottle on the Beers of Europe website and thought I may as well grab one despite the fact I’m not entirely sure it’ll be all that good a beer; it is a limited release though so I’d just end up regretting it if I didn’t try it.

Vote Sepp

Appearance (3/5): A pinkish red with a clear and quite light body topped with a half centimetre tall, bubbly white head that holds fairly well, still managing to cover the surface and sit about quarter of a centimetre tall after about two minutes so I can’t complain.
Aroma (6/10): Starting with some wheat and background spices, the beer has a few floral notes to it as well with some hibiscus coming through alongside a few herbal notes. It is quite fruity on the nose with some tart right at the end.
Taste (6/10): Sour and tarty right at the start, there is some wheat and floral flavours soon after with a bit of the hibiscus mentioned on the bottle. Some faint floral and citrus hops come through to impart a touch of bitterness but there are definitely quite subtle.
Palate (4/5): Light-medium bodied and smooth but definitely a dry beer, there is a nice tang to proceedings throughout with some bitterness right at the end. It is a well carbonated beer and it went down easy, quenching your thirst well without truly exciting the palate.

Overall (14/20): This one was an okay beer from Brewdog which is fairly unusual for one of there limited, one-off releases; I tend to find they are either amazing or terrible but this one fell somewhere in between. The beer was slightly tarty with good floral notes and some hibiscus was there as promised but it just wasn’t anything special I’m afraid and wouldn’t be one I’d pick up again if that was even possible; drinkable but not a classic.
