BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Almanac Beer Co.
California, United States
almanacbeer.com

Style: Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
To simulate Simcoe’s aromatic profile we added passionfruit, blueberry, spruce tips, beets, and coriander to our mixed fermentation, oak-aged base beer. And of course, Simcoe Flavor Wheel would not be complete without a generous addition of its namesake hop. The result is a trip around the flavor wheel that you won’t soon forget.

A: Moderately hoppy, with light berries, passion fruit and lemon, coupled with a light oak with a slightly funky and vinous character, with a moderate sourness.

A: Bright orange color, opaque, with a rocky white head that quickly forms a ring around the glass.

T: Moderate hop flavor, followed by light berries, passion fruit, coupled with a slightly funky and lightly vinous, with a moderate sourness through the finish.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: Solid; the beer has a great simcoe hop aroma and flavor that is well supported by the berries, and coriander.

2017 Draught Thirsty Monk AVL Quite aromatic. A little too much going on here, but very interesting. Citrusy, berry, piney and earthy. Fitting name.
