Firestone Walker Stickee Monkee (2016) | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

stickeefeature

A Belgian Quad by recipe, but aging it in spirits barrels garners its own category: Central Coast Quad. A beer formulated to sit on the sweeter and malty side so that we could utilize it for blending. Turbinado brown sugar from Mexico and Belgian candi sugar add wonderful molasses flavors. It has a full body and lush texture with barrel expression all over this beer: toasted oak, coconut, leather and cigar tobacco. Read More »

An Un-Freakin’-Filtered Hoppy Belgian-ish Wit This UNFILTERED Belgian-ish Wit-ly-esque-ish-ness brew features a dry twang of hoppy bitterness and is perfect for the summertime drinking!

Tröegs Nimble Giant (Best of 2016?) | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

nimblegiantfeature

We didn’t set out to release another double IPA, but when we tasted this hop combination, we latched on and didn’t let go. It started as an experiment with mosaic hops, and after six scratch batches it became Nimble Giant. The layers of Mosaic, Azacca, and Simcoe hops take over your senses. Mango, tropical fruit and creamsicle notes give the beer a silky, juicy underbelly that builds to a punch in the face grapefruit rind, honeysuckle and pineapple. Read More »

barmyfeature

Made with only six ingredients. Malted 2-row barley, palisade hops, orange blossom honey, White Labs California Ale Yeast, apricots and San Diego carbon filtered tap water. Low bitterness is balanced by tart apricots with a sweet but not cloying finish. Barmy Ale can be aged up to eight years with a strong honey wine character emerging if cellared. Be careful not to be the barmiest of them all. Read More »

Chimay Grande Réserve Barrel Aged | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

bluefeature

The barrel-aged Chimay Bleue of March 2016 stands out from classic Chimay Bleue thanks to the many nuances provided by the additional fermentation in wooden barrels. On the eye, the beer boasts a deep brown robe with a bright glint. Its extremely fine and smooth foam also possesses a slight shade of cream. On the nose, notes of black tea, jasmine and wood are equally predominant. On the palate, the woodiness cloaks the bread crust, roasting, mocha and Cognac aromas as well as the empyreumatical notes. This 2016 edition of barrel-aged Chimay Bleue boasts an excellent blend of the characters of Chimay Bleue and Cognac. This balance between roundness and powerfulness is best appreciated between 6 months and 1 year after it is bottled. Read More »
