Fine tropical-fruited summertime moderation takes straightforward path to sessionability. Crisply clean pink grapefruit-licked pineapple tang gains subtle blood orange tartness to placate mild grassy hop astringency over dry cardboardy pale malts. Lemon custard, apricot, quince, mango, peach and vinous grape undertones flutter.
Easygoing lo-cal IPA with spongy white head fading above its clear straw body utilizes acai berry to increase overall tartness. Spritzy lemon fizz prickles hard-candied pineapple, lacquered peach and mandarin orange illusions guided by acai-like pomegranate tartness above grassy-hopped wheat wafer bottom.
Unassumingly splendid updated version of standard Extra Pale Ale given delicate Citra-hopped IPA fruiting for truly sessionable appeal. Soft-tongued lemony orange-grapefruit tang embeds hushed herbal hop astringency above bready barley-toasted pale malts as tertiary pineapple, peach and tangerine snips waver.
Sessionably soft-toned tropical ale nudges salted passionfruit and guava tartness past bittersweet mango-pineapple piquancy, candied mandarin orange souring and strawberry rhubarb respite above muted white wheat base.
Refreshingly clean salt-watered taffy tartness promoted by limey strawberry pucker. Mildly sour sea-salted lime briskness combines with strawberry spritz and less prominent agave-cologned herbage for White Claw hard seltzer appeal, but Graham Cracker wheat bottom’s outta place.
On tap at Biggie’s, updated version of brewers’ most popular ale (newly labeled and stylistically bettering similarly-named ’06 precursor, Belgian Style Dubbel) places spicy brown-sugared dried fruiting alongside caramelized chocolate malting. Molasses-dipped dried cherry, fig, raisin and date sweetness gains peaty respite as well as subdued chestnut, banana bread and toffee notions.
Well-balanced autumnal offering laces spritzy cinnamon-spiced caramel malting with leafy hop foliage and wispy pecan nuttiness over mildly earthen bottom. Easygoing seasonal fare for the masses.
Crisply clean moderate-bodied lager maintains lightly creamed pastry-like cereal grain sugaring and biscuity pilsner malting to envelop lemony orange-melon briskness while mild grassy hop astringency stays firm. Sessionable summer excellence.
On tap at Biggie’s, cryogenic hops intensify citric bittering, resinous hemp-oiled musk and mild floral-spiced perfuming. Tropical mango, pineapple and tangerine tang contrasts lightly lingered lemon-juiced orange peel and grapefruit rind bitterness. Fairly bold.
On tap, crisply balanced medium-bodied blonde ale brewed exclusively for Brady’s in Ramsey retains brisk mouthfeel. Mild orange-peeled bittering gains pleasant pineapple-grapefruit-peach tang, proper citric-perfumed hop astringency and glass-sugared pale malting as fizzy carbolic spritz tingles tongue.
Exemplary updated 2016 version of briskly clean tripel unleashes sunny lemony orange-juiced grapefruit tang and sweet banana-clove goodness onto mildly creamed candi-sugared crystal malting. Recessive lemon meringue, grilled pineapple, peach, mango and papaya undertones as well as wispy floral-spiced herbage deepen conviction. “Americanized” Simcoe, Columbus and Amarillo hops enliven effervescent fruitful nature.
