New Beer Friday 9/23/16
Proper Brewing Mavon Weizbock - Weizbocks can be on sweet and cloying side of the beer spectrum, this beer is more balanced. Look for malts that are semi-sweet with a nice pecan-like nuttiness that's transisions into full on banana bread mode. @ Proper
Proper Brewing Salted Caramel Porter - Not as big on the caramel as I had hoped. Starts moderately sweet with caramel malts and finishes with a tiny sodium bite. 4.0% ABV @ Proper
Proper Brewing Hefehafer Oat Weisbier - This is a nice crushable beer. It has a nice crackery doughiness up front with with very subltle caramel backing it up. The oats clean up some of husky flavors some wheat beer have. Carbonation is nice and prickly. 4.0% ABV @ Proper
Proper/Epic Collaboration: Lime Hefe - This one hasn't been tapped yet. It debuts tomorrow at Proper's and Epic's Proptoberfest. 4.0% ABV
Uinta Funk'n Patch Brett Pumpkin Ale - This is Uinta's debut in the wild ale game. It's has a very Bretty nose with the typical pumpkin spices. The taste is subtly sour (not as bracing as some) with a nice malt base backing it up. The spices play well with the caramel sweetness creating a nice balance. Basically it's more funky than sour. If you're a big fan of the funk, this will be right up your zip code. 8.0% ABV @ Uinta starting at 11am.
RedRock Franconian Rauchbier - This lager is mostly malt driven with an assertive smokiness that will take over the beer mid way on the tongue. It's very complex adding a hint of berry fruitiness beneath the smoke into the finish. If you want to get into traditional German smoke beers, this would be an excellent place to start. This beer tastes like Autumn! ABV. @ RedRock starting at 11am.
