Block Print: Strawberry/Vanilla BeanBlock Print: Strawberry/Vanilla Bean
Notes: This version of Block Print was was brewed with strawberries, vanilla bean and lactose, imparting flavors of strawberry popsicle, and a slight raspberry note. Lightly tart and refreshing, with a subtle hint of vanilla, making this beer just what we’re looking for on these upcoming sunny spring days. This one's 6% abv, and it sports can art designed by Bethany Andrews-Nichols aka Beenanza Design Co.. Bethany is a blockprinting artist and graphic designer. The art on this can was originally block printed by Bethany last year before we released the first cans of Block Print. Thank you Bethany!

A: The beer is hazy dark pink in color. It poured with a quarter finger high off white head that left a narrow collar around the edge of the glass and some lacing on the surface.
S: Light aromas of strawberries are present in the nose.
T: The taste follows the smell and starts off with flavors of strawberries and has hints of lactose and vanilla beans along with a slight amount of sweetness.
M: It feels light to medium-bodied and slightly smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I liked how this beer seemed delicate, but you could still pick out the aromas and flavors of strawberries.

16 oz. can.
Canned 05/21/20.
Vigorous pour yields a not quite two inch light pink head over an orange-pink body with a little lacing. Nose of strawberry, slight sweet citrus, and the slightest vanilla. Taste follows closely with a slight strawberry tartness and even slighter vanilla. Nice feel and overall, quite refreshing offering that almost tastes like a strawberry sherbet.
Cheers!

pours dark pink/orange into a Teku. Very little head that dissipates quickly.
Smell is strawberry and beer. Nothing overpowering. Don't get much vanilla.
Flavor is tart strawberry with a kiss of sweetness from vanilla. The flavors meld together well. I could drink a couple of these actually. Which is rare for me to say with this style of beer.
Well done.

Poured from a 12 oz can into Zwyiec tulip

L: Clear golden pink pour with 2 fingers of foamy pink-tinged head. Falls fast... modest lacing.

S: Tart strawberry and kiwi. Fruity.

T.F: Just like it smells. Tart up front... strawberry, mild vanilla, kiwi fruit, and a bit of citrus. Slight funk. Relatively light bodied... sticky on the tongue with moderate carbonation. More strawberry at the finish.

O: Kind of an odd brew. Tart without being sour and strong strawberry flavor. Enjoyable beer. Goes well with summer.
