Let’s start with a complaint: why give this beer the same name as the old ale? I can see this creating a lot of confusion among consumers. To me, Third Coast is Bells’ old ale, and I’d be upset to find this in my glass instead. But anyway...
This was enjoyed in a tiny snifter at Tops.
Golden wheat in color, almost perfectly clear. A thin head of wispy white remains for a while, becoming a thin ring.
Bright, floral, fruity nose. A touch of pear and apple blend perfectly with lilac and orange blossom. Soft and sweet.
Much drier flavor. It’s heavily grainy and bitter, with soft old wheat and apple in the front and an extremely dry finish and major side-of-the-tongue bitterness rounding things out.
Medium body with nice viscosity. High, painful carbonation breaks the brew into large bubbles. Clean though bitter.
This blonde’s very drinkable with a great nose, but it’s a little too bitter for the style. I could use more sweetness.
Serving type: on-tap
