Notes/Commercial Description:
Faithfull Ale is a celebration of Pearl Jam's 20th anniversary as a band and its extraordinary debut album, "Ten." In recognition of these milestones, this Belgian-style golden ale is delicately hopped to 20 IBUs and fruit-forward from 10 incremental additions of black currants over a one-hour boil. Faithfull clocks in at 7% ABV.

served in a tulip glass.

A: Pour a clear golden pale yellow with an incredible amount of white and beige sediment staying fairly suspened throughout drinking. Large with frothy head that dies to nothing quickly with no lacy. It looks like someone filled my snowglobe with beer.

S: Lightly fruity smell; slightly of raisin bread and brief citrus. Very subdued even with a warmer temperature.

T: Pleasant initial light currant fruitness with a slight oiliness. Slightly yeasty without much flavor from the yeast. Finishes with a slight dryness/bitterness, more spice-like than hoppy.

M: Medium body. Very lightly carbonated. I think it could have benefitted from a little more carbonation.

O: Easy to drink, but just kind of bland. This is not a typical Dogfish Head beer. I wouldn't go out of my way to get more of this.

Huge Pearl Jam fan, so i bought 18 of these. One left to age. My favorite band from my favorite brewery. I'll be honest though, it taste more like a Belgium Ale, there is a creamy note to this beer with a bit of spice. Not much on the hoppy note, I'll update once it has a little age on it.
