Release #6, 5.2% alcohol
Week 4, but beer #2 (hey, it’s my birthday week. I’m allowed!)
This is a surprising beer to me, but one I LOVE. I’m not sure what I expected — it is both more flavorful and hearty than I expected (given the name, I expected something … light! witty!), but also something I can actually describe as ‘crisp’ and absolutely PERFECT for summer (or overly warm spring days like today). I rarely want my beers super-cold (blame my European roots), but this is actually one that I DO like fridge-cold and I suspect it would lose a lot if it were warmer.
This is definitely one beer I could have in a consistent rotation without feeling like it’s a fruity indulgence (I love Brainless On Peaches, but can I drink fruit beer on a weekly basis? unknown.)
As I do these weekly beers, I realize something. I’m drinking a lot LESS and enjoying a lot MORE. Also, these are exception beers and not just worthy of spending time with them, but in fact good enough that you WANT to linger and enjoy them :)
