Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: John_M on 10-02-2010

This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

An off-centered autumn honey beer brewed with 55% barley, 45% honey, and gesho root. Gesho is an African plant used for its bittering properties, and is used in the traditional Tej style brews of Africa. We also added 45 pounds of local peaches from Fifer Orchards during fermentation to add complexity. This beer was fermented with champagne yeast and it is mildly sweet, smooth, and complex. It has notes of honey and ripe stone fruits.

Apparently, this is a new version of the DFH's original Tej (according to the beer menu at the brewpub).

The beer pours a cloudy, waxy honey color with fairly good head retention and minimal lacing. The beer smells pretty "wheaty" on the nose, though I get some underlying fruit cocktail as well (the menu indicates the beer is made with honey and 45 lbs. of peaches). The sweet fruit really comes through on the palate, though it's not so sweet as to be cloying. Also, there's a lightness to this beer that is impressive (given the completely undetectable 7.5% abv.) Otherwise, there's something of a sweet tea flavor to this beer, and the mouthfeel is light, smooth and long. Drinkability is quite good, though it's hard to imagine drinking a whole lot of this.

Interesting beer, and one I'm glad I had the opportunity to sample.
