View this post on Instagram

Last but not the least, another awesome brewery from Hungary @monyobrewing and three of their delicious masterpieces. Shatzi is a top to bottom Bavarian wheat beer. You can taste some banana and clove mixed with citrus. The sourness perfectly balances with full-bodied beer, which is caused by unfiltering. It has the same strength as the blonde, blue-eyed waitress at Octoberfest. Flying Rabbit is made using five different kinds of malt during brewing process, then the popular Citra hop is added. It smells and tastes like a tropical fruit, starts out sweet with a bitter aftertaste. It was born to fly. Bipolar Bear is a white IPA, a mixture of traditional American IPA and spicy Belgian wheat beer (witbier). The orange citrus flavour and freshness of the coriander mixes with the bitterness of the IPA and the new wave Galaxy hop. Two styles in one bottle for adventurous people. #beer52 #beerdelivery #beer #beerlover #beergeek #craftbeer #craftbeerlover #craftbeerlovers #craftbeergeek #beerlovers #beerplease #beerenthusiast #beertrip #realbeer #beertaster #craftbeeraustria #craftbeeruk #beeroftheday #beertopgraphy #beerporn #beerstagram #craftbeerporn #brewery #hungarianbrewery #hungarianbeer #monyobrewery
