22 oz bottle poured into a Hinterland stange.
I tried packing as many owl references in this review as I could, however blantantly. Enjoy!
A - Poured from the Virgil bottle, carbonation rises carefree through the faintly clouded deep golden beer to a well-formed light ivory head that billows atop the brew, steadily lowering to coat the glass in ridges of rocky foam.
S - Distinct upon first whiff, Samuel Adams Verloren has a subtle sea salt and coriander nose that, paired with light herbal qualities of the Saaz hop, soar nicely over the malty base. Soft wheat and pale malt hold the fort with caramel and Munich sweetness traces finishing the nose out for an interesting, though fitting aroma.
T - Kaepora Gaebora presents coriander; sharp and undeniable in flavor but not so powerful it overlaps everything blindly. Sourdough bread and warmed biscuit draped with caramel drizzles come from pale, Munich, and caramel malts with a drying finish of salt and herbal hop qualities.
M - Medium bodied, the crisp carbonation livens up the feel with a crisp bite aided also by the coriander spice. Lingering on the bone dry finish is moisture-starved flaky biscuit sprinkled with light sea salt and a faint bitter kiss gently blown by the noble hops and a slight tart prickle on the tongue.
O-rly? - The components for a closely-brewed-to-style-beer are there but there's little in the states to compare Verloren to. Fear not, for this beer is brewed very well and tastes the part, all while playing the part to revive a heritage style from Germany. Ya rly, Verloren is a rockin' bottle from Samuel Adams, encouraging consumers to try new and different things!
