This weeks @BeerDownHere Sunday’s #BeerChurch bottle share featured some incredible brews and an even better evening with friends. Keep reading for some of the highlights:
Another solid as usual offering from the people at Grimm! This “no-boil” American wild ale is dry hopped with Mosaic, El Dorado, and Jarrylo and aged on American white oak. It pours pale yellow with a nice hazy and minimal thin white head. Nice aromas of citrus and tropical fruits like lemon, pineapple, and apricot, followed with matching flavors of tropical fruit and a pleasant mild tartness and acidity.
Pours golden yellow with a slight haze and a thin slowly falling white head. Aromas are citrusy with lemon along with nice floral notes and earthy funkiness. Flavor has a well balanced tartness with taste of lemons, limes, and oranges along with herbal and floral hop notes.
Pours a nice straw with a slight haze with interesting aromas of grass, lemons, spicey phenols, white pepper, and earthy funk. Taste of barnyard funk, lemons, biscuity malt, peppery spice, and herbal hop notes.
This sour ale from Mississippi is aged in Cabernet Sauvignon barrels with raspberries. It pours dark brown with a nice reddish/purple hue and a slight haze and moderate light tan head. Aromas are rasiny plum along with black currants and flour while the flavor consist of stone fruit, cherry, dates, and bread with a slight tart acetic-acid-like finish.
Pours a hazy light gold with a substantial white head. Aromas are layered with a subtle barnyard funk along with wonderfully fruity notes of citrus and tropical fruit, reminiscent of the smell of Sweet Tarts Candy you had as a kid… or maybe last Halloween. Flavor is comparable with hop forward taste of tropical/citrus as well as floral and spruce with pleasant earthy undertones.
This interesting IPA is brewed with pineapple and habanero peppers pours a nice reddish gold color with a persistent white head. Aromas are very fruity with notes of citrus and pineapple but balanced with sweet caramel malt and no noticeable smell from the habanero pepper. Taste is hop forward with big notes of tropical fruit and citrus along with piney/dank flavors and a faint pepper spice at the end.
This delicious “American-style” IPA from Sweeden is brewed with peaches and lactose and pours almost clear, but with a slight haze and beautiful pale golden color. Aroma is fruity; mainly citrus and tropical with notes of orange and grapefruit along with passion fruit accompanied by a slight danky/piney finish. Flavor has a dominant hop forwardness with tropical hints of mango and piney dankness along with a nice balance sweetness from the malt and milk sugar with a subtle peach finish.
