Grimm ‘Secret Track’, 4,5% ABV. Brooklyn, NY – Grisette (or petite saison, take your pick). Barely tart, delicate and funky little crusher produced with a traditional Belgian step mash of wheat and pilsner malt. Exclusively hopped with Motueka. Notes of black pepper and juicy fruit, with enticing resinous hop tones of strawberry, lime pith and sherbet.
Hill Farmstead ‘Marie‘, 4,8% ABV. Greensboro Bend, VT – A beautifully soft, unfiltered Helles lager. Lightly hazy, clean, crisp and sessionable. Slightly hopped lager with absolutely no flaws. Damn.
KCBC ‘Flying Canoe’, 6,2% ABV. Brooklyn, NY – A hoppy brown ale inspired by the French Canadian tale of “La Chasse-galerie” and featuring La Quebecoise 2-row pale malt, with Amarilllo, Centennial and Chinook hops. Bursting with aromas and flavors of dark pine, grapefruit rind, flaked wheat and chocolate.
Half Acre ‘Bourbon Barrel Aged Big Hugs’, 12% ABV. Chicago, IL – Giant bourbon barrel aged bourbon stout, with notes of espresso liquor, bourbon, cocoa nibs, vanilla, and tobacco. Smooth AF despite the high ABV. Wonderful and elegant.
