Candied apple, lemon custard, green grape, white apricot, pineapple, banana and coconut add breadth to alluring Chardonnay finish.

(SCHELDE) HOP-RUITER BLOND HOPPY BEER

Herbaceous white-peppered grapefruit, pineapple, mango, kiwi, and passion fruit seep into sourly lemon-pitted tartness. Peculiar eucalyptus, menthol, and sage illusions nudge adventurous concoction. Not strictly for adventurous drinkers looking for cool aperitif changeup.

Mild lemon rind souring, hemp-oiled raspberry vinaigrette tartness and floral zucchini-flowered hibiscus-lotus-jasmine reminder reach zenith at fruitful ginger-snapped mango-peach-pineapple-nectarine midst. Tertiary banana liqueur, brandy wine, and lemon meringue illusions further sweeten busy elixir. Just as advertised, “an ale of mythic proportions” (bottled at Sly Fox Brewery’s Royersford facility.)

CAPTAIN LAWRENCE GOLDEN DELICIOUS ALE

Tremendous sun-hazed strong ale aged in apple brandy barrels ambiguously tagged as an American tripel. Floral-tinged melon, cantaloupe, peach, and pineapple fruiting reinforces cinnamon apple pie theme of creamy butterscotch-malted slow sipper.
