Simple can be effective. And so is the case with the label on Tris Indiani. So much so, that it deserves a special mention. It’s not groundbreaking. But it is definitely effective and plucks you in.
Enough waffle (not the food – the meaningless rambling). Let’s crack her open…
I can’t understand the label on TI. But I do understand that it’s an APA (that part is in English). The nose certainly doesn’t hint at major hoppiness. In fact, while it’s not unpleasant, there’s hardly an odour of note.
And then the drinking – well, it’s ok. Quite sharp at front and then if you sit on it long enough without taking another pull TI gives some subtle floral notes. But nothing to write home about.
All in all, it’s pretty average. Nowt else to say!

Everybody should have a GO BAG. OK, maybe I’ve watched too many movies over the years, but everybody should have a GO BAG… Just in case. Just in case of what I’m not too sure, again maybe too many movies, but, just in case.
Of course everybody’s bag will be put together differently and the amount of filthy cash in there will vary depending on what you can afford but below is a guide to some fairly obvious essentials for any GB:
5k cash Brazilian Real.
Fold up brush.
Now, I’ll be honest, it’s the fake passport that links this waffle and beer review. See, the name on my fake passport is TRISTAN INDIANI, but my friends call me Tris.
And so to the beer and a first from Latvia for the MOB crew!
First off, AWESOME looking bottle! So simple but fantastic.
Lid lifted and beer poured and the nose was the next thing to please. Again, much like the packaging of this beer, not complex but really delivering. Citrus zings just tempting you in.
Taste wise this brew isn’t gonna knock you off your chair with excitement but it is a really tasty drop. A good citrus vibe kicks around throughout the drinking from that initial sniff, to sip, to TI’s lovely aftertaste. I think for an APA I would like more hop content but all in all Tris is crisp and crushable and I look forward to one day sipping one in the Riga sun.
