New Beer Friday 1/26/18
Avenues Proper Brett Kriek: The aroma is big with dough, Brettanomyces and cherry. The flavor has musty dough, a fair amount of Brett funk and pie cherries rounding it out. It finishes with that nutty cherry flavor. The cherry flavor is very fresh. This is a full on brett beer. If your not a fan of brett funk you my not like this one. I think it's pretty great. 4.0% ABV. Only at Avenues Proper.
Wasatch Elemental Wit: Brewed as a traditional Belgian Wit Beer with souring bacterium from Squatters' Fifth Element. The aroma is full of yeasty esters and lemon and spices. The flavor has a descent amount of tart orange with grains of paradise and a hint of funk in the back. Very tasty. 4.0% ABV. only available at Wasatch's Park City Brewpub and the West Side Tavern at The Utah Brewers Cooperative. The tap handle at the West Side Tavern says "Session Sour".
New Belgium VooDoo Juicy Haze: I haven't tried this one yet. It's described as having a melange of tangerine, papaya, pineapple, and lemon. The mouthfeel is somewhat soft, but with fairly prickly carbonation. 7.5% ABV. Available at select DABC stores.
Great Basin Wild Horse Altbier: I haven't tried this one yet. Alts are primarily toasty and malty. 4.8% ABV. Available at select DABC stores.
Great Basin Ichthyosaur "Icky" IPA: Piney aroma with floral undertones.Traces of caramel. The taste follows with pine and floral hops; malts come through faintly with notes of cracker and caramel. Finishes with a citrus and more pine.6.4% ABV
