I don’t know how many things are in the world that are key Lime flavored, but Birdsong Brewing has made one called Key Lime Kölsch, 4.3% at 40 IBU (International Bittering Units). This is a seasonal beer offed late summer. It’s has Key Limes and Vanilla with malts such as 2-Row, Dextrin, Flaked Oats, and Branch malt. It also has El Dorado hops. This Kölsch pours an orange color with a thin one finger fizzy clear white head. It quickly fades. The aroma is sweet with a citrus lime. The flavor is sweet from the lime upfront and then you get a sweet graham cracker like flavor with a bit of vanilla toward the back of your mouth. The mouthfeel is light. It finish like a piece of Key Lime pie. That same finish carries on over to the aftertaste and does linger for just a second. This beer grew on me. The more I drank the more I enjoyed it. I’d give Birdsong Brewing Co. Key Lime Kölsch a B. I was very similar to Key Lime pie, which I like and if you like it too then this beer is for you! Please be kind, be safe, and please enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
Burial Beer Co. & Cloudwater Brew Co. A Canvas of Fragmented Memories IPA with time and coconut, 7.3% AVB. This IPA is a collaboration between the two brewed in Asheville, North Carolina. This IPA has Cashmere, Idaho-Cryo, Incognito, Motueka, Sabbo hops in it. This IPA pours a misty yellow color with a bright white two and half finger head with good retention. The aroma is of slight lemon and a sweetness. There is a bit go some bitter notes. The taste is bitter-sweet with lime and light coconut flavors. It has a bitterness to it as well. The mouthfeel is thick and juicy. This IPA finishes with a bittersweet note that has a light hoppy kick at the very end. This Burial Beer has a limey aftertaste with hoppy notes. This beer doesn’t really show much of the said coconut. The lime is much more present along with the bitterness and the hops. Burial Beer Co. & Cloudwater Brew Co. A Canvas of Fragmented Memories IPA gets a C+ from me. it comes to the fact that the coconut is not so present and the lime clashes a tiny bit with the hoppy flavors, but it not bad. It’s just a bit above average. I don’t think I would go back for Burial Beer Co. & Cloudwater Brew Co. A Canvas of Fragmented Memories IPA right away but it I will not be staying away from it. Please be kind, be safe, and enjoy responsibly!
King Canary Brewing Co. Blue Loon Witbier, 5% ABV is from Mooresville, North Carolina. This Witbier is brewed with unmalted wheat, orange peel, & coriander. It it supposed to like an homage to Miller Brewing’s Blue Moon. Blue Loon pours a golden color with two finger quickly disappearing white head. The aroma is a little sweet and light west aromas with faint banana & spice. The taste is semi-sweet, there is light about of spice/wheat and a little bit of a tart banana/ The mouthfeel is on the lighter side. This beer finishes light with a lager like flavor. That familiar finish carries over to the aftertaste with a little sweetness and a bit of tart flavors. Overall this is average beer, and there’s really nothing to write home about. But I would say it a bad beer. I give King Canary Brewing Co. Blue Loon Witbier a C-. I found this to be a thin flavored witbier. Blue Moon has fuller flavor than this. None of the flavors really jump out. I would have this again and it’s not a bad choice if you pick some King Canary Brewing Co. Blue Loon Witbier. Please be kind, be safe and enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
I am not the biggest fan of blueberry ales. This is Georgia Beer Co. Blueberry Field Party Blonde Ale, 5% ABV. This is the last of the verity of Field Party Blonde Ales I have. This particular Field Party beer pours a golden color with a one finger fizzy white head that fades real quick. The aroma is big sweet fresh blueberries. The blueberries pretty much mask any other notes. The taste is sweet with blueberries and a very little bready note. The mouthfeel is light. The aftertaste is blueberry with little bits of bready notes. The aftertaste is like container that had blueberries left in it. There is a sweetness to the aftertaste but it not very strong. Georgia Beer Co. Blueberry Field Party Blonde Ale wasn’t so bad. I’d say its a B-. It didn’t taste of artificial blueberries like some blueberry beers. But it hasn’t changes how I feel about blueberry ales. I mean a stout with blueberries is okay, but not in anyother styles. I would go for this again soon, but not too soon. Please be kind, be safe, and enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
I haven’t had much or any Perennial Artisan Ales. This is Perennial Artisan Ales Vacation Dad Dry-Hopped Summer Ale, 4.7% ABV. This ale has hopes such as Motueka, Amarillo, Citra, and has grains such as Pilsner malt, and spelt. This beer is from St. Louis, Missouri. This ale pours a bight yellow hazy color with a with a bight two finger fluffy white head that’s slow to fade. The aroma is of citrus fruit like oranges and grapefruits. It has a bitterness to it aroma as well. The taste is citrusy with oranges and grapefruits, with bitter notes and a slight hoppy flavor. The mouthfeel is creamy and has medium feel. This beer has a clean but hoppy pilsner finish to it. The aftertaste is a linger of light citrus fruits. perennial Artisan Ales Vacation Dad Dry-Hopped Summer Ale is quite good and I found it to be an interesting summer pilsner. The addition dry-hopping as another lay of flavor to this beer. I give it a an A-. I am not such how much Pilsner malt was used but I think just a little more would have put this already great beer over the top. But I can find any other faults with it. I highly recommended it, and I would have this again and again! Please be kind, be safe, and enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
Unibroue La Fin Du Monde Belgian Style Triple Ale, 9% ABV is brewed in Chambly Quebec Canada which is an off-island suburb of Montreal. The Uniborue was purchased by the Sapporo Brewery in 2006 after being bought by Sleeman Breweries LTD in 2004. Now that you’re r up to speed on what I consider to be one of the best breweries, especially for Belgian Style Ale. La Fin Du Monde (End of the World) pours a golden orange color with a two finger thick white slow head. It eventually fades into a little white island in the middle. The aroma is sweet, fruity and spiced. The taste is fruity with orange and some banana. There is a yeast quality to it flavor, as well a spiced noted. The mouthfeel is full, and thick. La Fin Du Monde finishes with an effervescence, because this ale probably has more than normal carbonation. There is a fruity yeast flavor in the finish as well. The aftertaste is just spiced fruit with hints of the yeast. It does linger quite awhile. I’ve had the many times before and might have reviewed it ages ago, but this is still good as always. Unibroue La Fin Du Monde Belgian Style Triple Ale is an A. Yes it is strong at 9% ABV but most Belgian Triples are. The flavor does a great job of taking the bigger alcoholic flavor and mitigating them. I highly recommend this one for sure. It never gets old and you can certainly have more that two pints of this without the flavor killing your tastebuds. But the alcohol content may get you first. That worth it for such a taste beer. Please be kind, be safe, and enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
This west-coast style IPA, duh, 7% ABV, is a collaboration between Burial Beer Co. & Green Cheek Beer Co, made in Asheville, North Carolina. This IPA utilized CRYO, EL DORADO, EL DORADO CRYO, INCOGNITO, MOSAIC, MOSAIC CRYO, NELSON hops and is a one-off beer. This beer pours a cloudy yellow color with a barely two-finger white head. The aroma is citrus fruit/juice. There are grapefruit and orange aromas with a few tropical flavors and a hoppy flavor. The taste is tropical citrus with bitter grapefruit and bits of orange. It has a bit of a medium, grainy mouthfeel. It finishes with a bitter citrus fruit flavor. The aftertaste is hoppy bitter with a slightly grainy feel. Overall this was an okay beer. It’s a C. The mouthfeel and aftertaste brought it down a little. Usually, Burial beers are better than this, especially their IPAs. I wouldn’t say this is one of the worst IPAs I’ve had. Trust me. I have had way worse. Burial Beer Co. & Green Cheek Beer Co. duh, will not make me dislike Burial Beer Co. because I know they can brew fantastic IPA and other beers. You should try Burial Beer Co. They have great beer. Please be kind, be safe, and enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
Bhramari Brewing Co. When Will Then Be Now, 5.3% ABV is a Berliner Wiesse that utilizes ruby chocolate, Cara Cara (a red-fleshed navel orange), and blood orange. This beer pours a muddy yellow/orange color with a one-finger white fizzy head. This beer has a sweet chocolate orange aroma to it with tartness. The flavor/taste is not far off from its smell. There is a s\chocolate orange taste with a funky tartness. The mouthfeel is light. This beer finishes with a sweet chocolate orange tartness. The aftertaste is the same as the finish, but the tartness is fuller. It all lingers till you have another sip. This beer is interesting to me. It has a good flavor. I say it’s a C+. The chocolate clashes a little with the tart fruity flavors but nothing terrible here. This beer isn’t one that you can more than probably two pints of before it becomes too much. But it was interesting. Please be kind, be safe, and enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
This is the is the last of the Clubtails. This particular one is Clubtails Screwdriver 10% ABV. This one pours a slight yellow/orange color with a nice color fade from light yellow to light orange. The aroma is like an orange This particular one is Clubtails Screwdriver 10% ABV. This one pours a slight yellow/orange color. It also has a good color fade from light yellow to light orange. The aroma is like an orange Mt. Dew soda with hints of alcohol. The taste is artificial orange juice. It is like an orange-flavored Mt. Dew almost. It has a light mouthfeel. This screwdriver finishes with a fake orange juice flavor. There is a tart orange juice aftertaste with a punch of 10% alcohol. I did not care for this after a few sips. Clubtails Screwdriver is a D-. it had too much of a fake flavor. That got old quickly. I drank almost half, and then I poured the rest out. Now, if it had been fewer, say like sixteen ounces, then it might be slightly easier to finish, maybe. This one was the last. In confusion, I found the Clubtails beverages to be just barely above average. I found the Sunny Margarita to be the best. Please be kind, be safe, and enjoy responsibly!
