Parish Envie is brewed with loads of citrusy American hops to create an assertive, yet balanced American Pale Ale. We've used sweet caramel malts to mesh harmoniously with a dominant hop taste and aroma. Take a sip, embrace the hops, and repeat.

The beer pours light clear copper with a white head that doesn't stick around very long. There are lots of visible tiny bubbles. The aroma is of bready malt with some bright citrus, floral, and piney hop notes. It smells pretty fresh. The flavor of this beer is more balanced on the hop side, but the malt has a nice presence here too with some good bready notes. There are some good piney and citrus flavors from the hops in this beer. The body is light to medim with moderate carbonation. The finish is dry. The beer is refreshing and easy to drink. This is a good beer that would be very refreshing after a hot Louisiana summer day.

The new recipe aka "Baby Ghost". The aroma on this one is phenomenal. Very piney almost dry smelling. The taste is fabulous as well. Slightly sweet but very dry mouth feel while still being smooth at the end. Not the pallet wrecker that Ghost is. I love this beer. Side note, this was harder for me to find than Ghost. Along with Commotion from Great Raft, Louisiana is putting out some fabulous pale ales.

I had to re-review this beer since the recipe change with the Nov. 2015 batch. First off, let me say I was a fan of the original Envie. The new recipe, though, boosts this beer up several notches. The beer pours a golden/amber color and leaves a sizeable, modest white head that leaves a good bit of lace. The smells are beautiful! Like it's big brother, GITM, huge grapefruit rind, pineapple, and a slight piney hop presence. Taste follows the nose but still adds a tad of malt character, albeit less than the original recipe. This beer is sooo crushable. Feel is light-medium with a slight bitter finish. Overall, this beer is now as hard to get as Ghost In the Machine. Good thing they are brewing it 2-3 times a month. It is one of those beers now, because of proximity, will stay in my fridge.

Copper color with a thin head. Steady stream of bubbles. Smell upfront is piney, citrussy, bready and caramely. I'm feeling the taste. Not too sweet or malty. Lightly malty base with a bit of an American hop punch in the end. Floral aftertaste. Light bodied and with relaxed carb. This is really drinkable. I could knock back a few while having a huge bowl of chicken and sausage gumbo.

Nice floral and citrus nose. Citrus hop finish. Overall, a little lighter in mouth feel and taste than similar citrus APAs. Still, an extremely drinkable beer -- very nice balance and flavor.

Parish Envie has a medium-to-thick off white head, which rather quickly fades, a hazy, somewhat bubbly, orange appearance, with lots of tiny suspended particles, and a decent lacing sheen left behind. The aroma is of piney hops, sweetness, and bread, and the flavor is of those same elements. The hop bitterness is pleasant and noticeable, but not strong. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Parish Envie finishes semi-dry, sweet, and refreshing. Overall, this is a straightforward pale ale entry and is very mellow and enjoyable.
