JYMI SAY’S…

B…limey, there are a lot of talking points with this one.

Here goes..

We’re going to have to start with the tin design aren’t we. WHAT. THE. ACTUAL. FUCK?!?! (The Muse on Booze bleep out swearing sector (MOBBOSS)) said we are allowed to swear in this review due to the name of the beer itself. About time you ghastly brutes!

I mean, I’m kind of speechless. This is literally the worst looking can of beer I think I have ever seen! It’s scary. Creepy. Sinister. Just right flippin’ weird if you ask me. Odd looking elephants, mannequins and statues staring into your soul… It’s just not right.

But hang on… this get’s us to our next talking point.. the name. Well they’re not holding back over at To Øl now are they?!!

Is the name essentially saying, FUCK ART and it’s finer depths where you may understand and even admire such bizarre works that are displayed on this tin of ale. Just FUCK ART and have a drink of beer. Maybe, just maybe? But who cares…

Let’s get to our next and final talking point..

This is one of the best beers that I have ever tasted. There you go. I said it. Massive call yes but the quality of this brew is just immense. Seriously, the mouth feel alone suggests it has been passed through 70,000 glaciers made from the purest water that has ever been found. Words cannot get over just how natural and flawless the texture of this brew is. Actual flavour wise what we have is a pretty large presence of sweet mango but is balanced down with bitter and dulling tones.

Though you couldn’t pack away too many of these it does not take away from the fact that this is just one special ale and leads me on to our conclusion…

This beer from To Øl for me means taking the packaging into account when reviewing a beer is an absolute must. For if I didn’t do these little write ups each week there is a fairly good chance that I would never have tasted the absolute masterclass we have here from this Danish brewing giant. OK, it’s not that easy to get hold of but if I had found myself in a snazzy bottle shop I would have passed by this tin with a ‘what the flip is that’ attitude. Wrong I know, but true. Which would mean that I would have missed out on a simply incredible brew.

SAMMY SAY’S…

There’s no way of denying it; this beer has a name that is meant to grab your attention (but you do have to scour the can to find it). It also has a can design that is…interesting, with images that could range in description from budget all the way through to scary. So it’s not surprising then, that I approached this beer with trepidation.
However, Fuck Art We’ve Got Zestappeal is a very well rounded beer. The sweet tropical come mango nose is incredibly light. If you like sweet smelling beers, then you’d be hard pushed to find a better one that this. It really is a tempter…
If grapefruit juice was a 10, then Fuck Art is scaled down to 6. This citrus peel flavour is a perfect balance of bitterness and sweetness and, like the nose, is light. This leads to this brew being an easy beer to drink, which leaves a incredibly clean palate…perfect for going in for the next sip.
There’s no hiding from this being a very good beer indeed. It would be perfect for any special occasion, but could equally be enjoyed whenever you so wish.
