New Beer Blog Mountain Town Brewing Peach Gruit Ale


In this beer blog, we are going to get into another beer from Mountain Town Brewing.  It is their Peach Gruit Ale.  If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this Michigan craft brewery.  If you have not, please, read them to get to know this Midwest craft brewery.  Let us get into this fruit beer.

It has a heavy cloudy yellow color with a white head that disappears over time. The aroma has a metallic peach notes. The taste has a sweet peach to apricot notes with a wet peach aftertaste. It is drinkable beer.

In the end, I am not a huge fan of fruit beers.  I have never had this beer so it was on my bucket list.  It is a solid beer but I am not a fan. I can see fans of fruit beers loving this brew. This craft brewery has did a great job and being locally (Michigan), I know Michigan craft beer drinkers will drink this brew.  I recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

In this special beer blog, we are going to get into another beer from New Belgium Fat Tire And Friends.  It is a joined beer with Rhinegeist Brewery.  The beer is called Fat Pale Ale.  If you read my earlier beer blog posts, you know the rich history of New Belgium Brewery.  If you have not, please, read them to get to know New Belgium Brewery.  There is not much information about Rhinegeist Brewery.  I do know that they are from Cincinnati, Ohio.  Let us get into this Pale Ale.

It has a clear copper to light amber color with a semi on white constant head. The smell has a malty to biscuit notes. The taste has a malty, biscuit, slight citrus notes with a malty aftertaste. It is extremely drinkable beer.

Here is a description from their website (www.newbelgium.com):

Fat Tire to the XP and A. The innovative folks at Rhinegeist went all new-style on Fat Tire. The result is a Belgian-style XPA. A combination of fruity Belgian yeast, bready-sweet European and Colorado malts and a healthy dose of fruity, vinous hops. Perfect for hopheads, wine lovers, beer fanatics and even whiskey quaffers.

In the end, I am liking this sampler pack so far.  I am not a fan of Rhinegeist Brewery.  I am hoping that they learn something from New Belgium from this experience.  This beer is called a Pale ale. I am not sure on that but still a solid beer.  Either way, New Belgium and Rhinegeist Brewery did a great job on this beer.  I recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

Closing, I have always been a pretty big fan of this craft brewery.  I just feel their beers are little overpriced for the Midwest area of the United States.  I love this beer. I love the tropical fruit and pineapple notes. This is a great beer. I love the hops that they picked in this beer.  I hope they do a full body IPA with the same hops.  This is a great lawn work beer along with their Dale’s Pale Ale.  I highly recommend this beer.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!

New Blog Uinta Brewery Sum’r Summer Ale


In this blog, we are going to take another look at the the small brewery from Utah.  If you read my earlier on their Uinta Brewery Hyve Honey Ale then you know a little bit of this brewery, let us get into the beer.

This beer is a clear golden color with no head to it.  The smell is a little earthy or fresh air.  The taste of this summer seasonal is very smooth and very light to make this beer very drinkable. It has a nice sweet carbonation with a slight citrus taste in this beer.  There is really no aftertaste to this summer ale. It kind of reminds me of a kolish but I know it is not the beer style.

Here is a descripation from their website (www.uintabrewing.com):

Description

Citrusy and thirst-quenching, this refreshing golden ale is highlighted by the use of unique hops.

Tasting Notes

Appealing Sorachi hops, an uncommon hop from Japan, balanced with lighter malts. Citrusy, fresh, clean. Sum’r Organic Summer Ale pairs well with summer. It is an easy companion to most foods on the summer grill, such as chicken, fish, and burgers. Pairs well with curries and spicy foods. Try it with sushi!

In closing, I am not a big fan of most Spring and Summer Seasonal beers.  This Summer Ale from Uinta is a little bit better then their Spring Season, which is Uinta Hyve Honey Ale.  I really did not enjoy this beer and here are my reasons.  The first thing that turn me off about this beer is the light in body of it.  It is very light in body to fit the hot summer days, which makes sense.  I am a weirdo because I will drink some heavy and full body beers in the hot summers.  I do not care what season it is.  I love my big beers.  This beer has more flavor then their Hyve Honey Ale but I would rather drink a pilsner.  Overall, Uinta did a good job on this beer and it will sell to fans of Summer Seasonals and light body beers.  Go get some!  Drink it! Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/

Cheers!
