New Beer Friday 4/12/19
Fisher Hayduke: This new pale ale has a nice citrus aroma and features a taste reminiscent of tangelo and lime with a healthy dose of bitter rind. Super drinkable. 4.0% - Available at Fisher
Proper Sour Rangers: This soured saison has a nice purple color with pink highlights. The aroma has a vague berry smell that is pleasing. The taste is tart for the most part, due to the sour base base beer. The blackberries used pile on, adding a little sweetness to counter. Some saison yeast is detected. If you like tart berries, you'll love this. 4.0% - Available at Proper.
Dogfish Head Dragons and Yum Yums: This tart ale is a collaboration with the Flaming Lips. Brewed with dragonfruit, yumberry, passion fruit, pear juice and black carrot juice. Sounds yummy. 6.5% - Available at DABC
Sierra Nevada Sierraveza: Biscuit forward with some grain sweetness. The hops are floral and grassy. Nice dry finish. A nice Mexican Style Lager. 5.0% - Available at Beer Bar, DABC
All of these JW Lees are available at the Bayou starting today. I have not tried any of these. They look damn tasty though, look at those vintages!
