Firestone Walker Agrestic (2015) | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

This liberation begins its journey as DBA then continues through a “chrysalis” process involving 87% French and 13% American Oak barrels, and our proprietary collection of micro flora. To blend, we selected beer matured eight to 24 months in barrels, creating a synergistic beer. Immediately, toasted oak and lemon pith swirl on the nose and palate, followed by an amazing harmony of vanilla, coconut, Earl Grey tea and spice. The finish is crisp, with mouth-watering acidity and chewy tannins. Since we age, blend and bottle these beers once a year, there will be slight variation with each release. A santé! Read More »

Almanac Beer Brandy Barrel Peche | Beer Geek Nation Craft Beer Reviews

Today on Beer Geek Nation we take a look at another sour from Almanac Beer Co out of California. This is not just any sour though its a blonde sour aged in brandy barrels with peaches for six months! Check out the review to see what I thought. Cheers. From the brewer: “Historically, fruit-infused sour beers were a way of preserving the summer harvest. In that tradition, this blonde ale was added to brandy barrels with high-summer peaches, hand-picked by the Loewen family at Blossom Bluff Orchards in Reedley, California. We aged this liquid gold for six months until we needed a reminder that summer will come again. Pair with Prosciutto, crusty bread and fruit preserves.” Read More »
