Here’s another beer from a recent Brewpublik delivery I recevied, what a good service. This is Stillwater-Artisanal Insetto Dry-Hopped Sour Ale with Italian Plums 5.0% ABV. Insetto is the Italian word for insect. I’m not sure why Stillwater-Artisanal named this beer Insetto, other than its an Italian word and Italian plums are used or maybe insects like to eat at plums, you know fruit flies, they like plums and are a kind of insect, so maybe thats it. Anyhow, Insetto pours a peachy dark pink color with a one finger clear fizzy head with nothing left behind and Insetto has tart aromas of slightly sweet plums, plum juice and some candied fruit. Taste is pretty much what you read on the can, tart plums with plum juice and a bit of a slight sour note on the back of the mouth. The flavor makes your lips pucker a bit especial after each swig. Insetto finishes with a sour yet tart plum and plum juice flavor leaving a tart and slighty sour plum juice after taste. This Insetto has a one-sided flavor profile, but it’s not bad and yes it’s refreshing and easy to drink. I give Stillwater-Artisanal Insetto Dry-Hopped Sour Ale with Italian Plums an A-. I am not a huge fan of plum juice, but I do however like to eat plums. I don’t know why that is. This is just to much plum flavor here but thats okay, I think there needs to be a flavor of maybe some slight hops to cut down the intensity of the juicy plums here. But the big plum flavor is not a bad thing; it is just that I don’t think you’d get past two cans of this stuff with out having everything else you put in your mouth taste like plums. That’s where I think it falls off just a bit . Insetto is still high at an A-. I recommend trying Stillwater-Artisanal Insetto Dry-Hopped Sour Ale with Italian Plums. Good Stuff! Cheers! Please enjoy responsibly!
