Le Freak (Green Flash Brewing Company)

Style: Belgian Double IPA/ American Tripel

9.2% ABV

101 IBU’s

Brewery’s Note: “Le Freak is the first-ever hybrid ale of its kind: the convergence of a Belgian-Style Trippel with an American Imperial IPA. Spawned over barstool pontifications between Publican and Brewmaster, this zesty Amarillo dry-hopped, bottle-conditioned marvel entices with fruity Belgian yeast aromatics and a firm, dry finish. Experience a legendary beer phenomenon.”

The beer pours out the color of rosé wine, with a slight oranging tinge to it. A sudsy head of creamy, off-white bubbles forms above the glass, and then withers into fluffy scrim over the beer, leaving wispy patches of lacing to patchwork the sides of the glass. On the nose, the beer smells of crisp hay, lemon grass, subtle sour dough and honey, herbal hops, very soft clove and funky esters with the end of the sniff. The aroma has me thinking more farmhouse IPA or Belgian Pale Ale, rather than Belgian IPA, but I don’t hate it by any measure. On the tongue, the beer tastes funky and bready sweet upfront, but this slowly unfurls into a dry, herbal and piney bitter finish, with a brief hiccup of near funky acidity in the middle and close of the sip, and just a ghost of the booze hidden in this Belgian bitter bomb. In flavor, the beer begins as fruity esters, like bananas and cream along with mixed grains, this blends with more rustic farmhouse hay and doughy bread as the sip progresses. These flavors are then slowly infected with bitter grass, which moves into bitter herbs, and brushes into pine nettle territory, clearly displaying the alpha acids on the tongue, but not in a displeasing fashion. The aftertaste is quite mild and pleasant, with just a ghost of banana funk and a lingering bitter burn on the tongue. In the mouth, the beer feels medium + bodied, with a creamy, gripping mouthfeel, and middling carbonation that does provide a slight snap to the palate. The bitterness of the beer puts a good bite into the tongue, and leaves a resinous astringency over the entire tongue when it leaves, though not in an unpleasant way (if you are looking for a dose of lupulin). Overall, I like this beer, and I was expecting to be underwhelmed. To me, it has a decidedly farmhouse tinge to it (whatever that means) especially in the yeast characteristics, which seem more “barnyard hay and grass” rather than a tripel’s “bananas and grainy cream.” I don’t see the farmhouse tinge as a problem though, as I find the execution takes on the heavy hops well, and makes the beer crisp and drinkable for its ABV. I’ve always been underwhelmed by Green Flash, which I mostly chalk up to me being on the east coast and getting their beers after their “hoppy prime.” This beer, however, is still in its prime to me. A great sipper that could probably age and mellow for at least a year, though it will lose its intense hop bite. One to try. 

New England Brewery Series: From the Barrel Brewing Company (Londonderry, NH)

I haven’t done one of these in a while, but I had a lovely experience in Londonderry the other day, and wanted to spread the word about this awesome new nano, so I figured I would resurrect the series.

From the Barrel is located in an industrial park, maybe a thousand feet down from Moonlight Meadery, and right off of I-93 in Londonderry, NH. The location is in prime placement for the end-of-the-day-commute (especially for me!). Like many new breweries, their sign is tiny, and their store front is a little hard to find thanks to weird laws set up by the state, town, etc… but once you find FtB, you’ll know your there. The place has an awesome green and black color scheme that comes across bright, inviting, and cozy all at once. The interior sports a nice open room with a bar that almost feels like your good friends bar in his basement, if your good friend ran an awesome nano-brewery with a nice tap setup, etc… This room leads out to another drinking room with a great window set up to look out over the 1-barrel brew house. FtB sports a nice big chalkboard behind the bar, which features all the beers available, as well as a tease of some of the beers to come, and the beers that have kicked. They offer tasting flights of everything for cheap, and do 32 oz. growler fills as well. At the time, no food is offered from the brewery, which is understandable since they are a brewery and not a pub (I suppose I should rant about that in another post…). When I arrived, a friendly couple was just leaving and was chatting with one of the owner/brewers but I happily took their place and had the bar to myself.

Owner Jay Anderson was attentive and friendly from the get-go, and you could tell he was doing something he loved. He talked with pride and proper trepidation about his jump into the industry, and his desire to produce a quality product. We chatted about New Hampshire beers and the fun of the industry while I sampled the beers, and I can say that, just from chatting with Jay, I am very excited to see where this brewery goes.

First up from the taps for me was (what is quickly becoming their best-seller, I’m told) Lily, a 7.5% IPA with just the right aromatics and bitter bite to make the beer hugely quaffable. I took home a growler of Lily, which is saying something from me, since I really have just been underwhelmed by IPA’s lately. After Lily came Sweet Jane, a 4.7% pale ale that I kind of wish I had sampled prior to Lily, as Lily’s beautiful hop profile muted much of the subtle nuance found in pale ales. From what I could tell of Sweet Jane, though, she was softly biscuity, with a middling herbal/pine hop character that made her very, very drinkable. I personally believe that any brewery that wants to succeed these days needs a good easy drinking beer, and though I couldn’t taste it in all of its glory, Sweet Jane was crushable and completely appropriate for all sorts of pub grub and easy drinking activities. I followed Jane up with Born in the Sun, a witbier that also came in at 4.7%. Born in the Sun had a great balance of orange peel, wheat flake, and coriander notes, while a slight tartness lurked below everything else and gave the beer a slight twang that I enjoyed. My second to last sample was their new beer for the day, Zed’s Dead Pale Ale, which rang in at 4.6%, and was equally crushable as Sweet Jane. From what I recall, Zed had more of a complex malt character going on beneath the mild hop bitters, which made the beer interesting and balanced. The final beer on tap was Remedy, which I already wrote a review on, but which was just as delicious the second time around. I see Remedy as its own sub-style of porter, as it has a healthy ABV (8.5%), yet is muddy brown in color and full of nutty and toffee flavors alongside the coffee and chocolate notes. I’m definitely a fan of Remedy, and am pleased to hear that Jay is thinking about putting some into a barrel to see what happens. Jay mentioned that he already has a small, virgin barrel out back, but also mentioned his interest in getting ahold of a rum barrel, which I think is a brilliant idea. He said that brewery is definitely looking into barrel aging, but that they obviously would have to be selective with their projects, since they are only brewing on a 1-barrel system, but the prospect has me excited.

FtB is putting out some superb, easy drinking beers, which has me very excited for things to come. Their owners seem to have some good heads on their shoulders, and are very friendly and inviting (which is always good in the industry). They told me that they try to constantly have something new coming out, which I personally feel is the best way to generate a constant customer base in the saturated beer market we live in today, and which will help to ensure my return in coming months. My one quibble with the tastings was that they should try to have guests drink their pale ales before jumping into the IPA, but at the same time, Lily was so good that I don’t blame them for starting me off with her… I’m excited to see where this brewery goes, and you all should definitely check them out! They’re open Thursday through Saturday at 15 Londonderry Rd, Londonderry, NH. Go visit!

Smuttlabs White IPA (Smuttynose Brewing Company)

Style: White IPA (Hybrid: Belgian Wit with IPA level hops)

4.5% ABV

Price: $$

From: Seacoast, NH

Availability: Limited (Mostly in NH and select accounts in the North East)

Brewery’s Note: “A White IPA brewed with witbier yeast, coriander, two types of orange peel and lots of Citra hops.”

image

The beer pours a pale and oranging yellow, sort of like dehydrated piss. The beer pours with a small head of fizzy white bubbles with lackluster retention. The bubbles leave very slick and slippery bubbles on the sides of the glass. In body, the beer is clear and clean, with a slight haze, but no floating particles. On the nose, the beer smells like spiced orange juice. Coriander and orange peel blend with rich, citrusy pine and mango scents, and a bready sweetness lingers below everything else. The scent is very crisp and clean for Belgian yeast. Its low on esters, but that is not a bad thing. On the tongue, the beer tastes tart and then sweet, with a growing citrus bitterness that builds into the finish alongside bready sweetness. The balance leans towards bitterness (as anything with IPA in the title should) but is remarkably even for the style. In flavor, the beer briefly begins as lemon juice, and then transitions into orange juice. A spice of coriander and citrusy/bitter orange peel enter into the middle of the sip, yeasty breadiness builds in the finish alongside citrusy piney hops and a nice herbal bitter flavor that gives perfect balance. The finish, in its entirety, seems a lot like bready orange juice with a healthy bitterness. The beer teeters between being a Belgian Wit and being a spiced IPA wonderfully, and the balance between the two styles is quite superb. In the mouth, the beer feels on the light side of medium, with a creamy mouthfeel that is buoyed by a tingling effervescence from the middling carbonation. When the beer leaves, the mouth is left sticky/dry, reminiscent of after you drink a good IPA. As I think about it, the finish is rather short and crisp on the beer, which makes it tremendously quaffable. Overall, I am a fan of this beer. It is hugely drinkable (dare I say sessionable?), and is begging to be placed in a six-pack. I was a bit bummed that Smuttlabs was not just pumping out barrel-aged and sour creations, but so far their session and hoppy offerings have been superb. If only they were cheaper! This is a superb beer. Charlie has done it again.

Stoneface APA (Stone Face Brewing Company)

Style: American Pale Ale

5.6% ABV

From: Newington, NH

Brewer’s Notes: [Not available… They don’t even have a beer section on their website? I know there are lots of important beer making things you guys are doing, but you should throw that up there so people can read lovely descriptions of your beer]

The beer pours a pale orange with yellow and green hints. A nice head of soapy white bubbles forms above the beer, with a healthy retention, and leaves an excellent smattered wall of splotchy lacing as it fades. On the nose, the beer smells of dank resin, grapefruit, mango, subtle herbal garlic, orange rind, and a spicy earthiness that adds an excellent twist to the end of the sniff. The beer has a properly pungent and hoppy nose that has me pleased. On the tongue, the beer tastes briefly sweet, with a quick drying twist towards bitterness, and a middle boost of what seems like isopropyl alcohol…? The finish is bitter, with a mild citric acidity, a touch of bready sweetness, and even a hint of earthiness. As I drink more of it, the isopropyl alcohol note in the middle dies off, though I still sense a ghost of it in the finish. In flavor, the beer begins as soft bread malts which transitions into beautiful grapefruit pith, and resinous pine. Slight mango comes on towards the close of the sip, along with a nice breadiness, which gives the beer a touch of balance that is more traditional in the style (though these newfangled APA’s have really been ignoring that…which I kind of like). The finish is of more pith, lemon zest, and pine, with an aftertaste of citric resin and an earthy breadiness that I really enjoy, and actually pulls the beer more towards that classic APA feel while retaining that awesome hop character. In the mouth, the beer is lighter in body, with a smooth, crisp mouthfeel, mild and fluffy carbonation, and a very high drinkability. When the beer leaves, the mouth is left feeling dry, yet slightly gushing in the cheeks. The roof of the mouth feels sticky and resinous, which is what I like from my hoppy beers. Overall, this is a supremely easy drinking, gorgeously hoppy example of restraint in brewing. The isopropyl alcohol flavor was a bit off-putting at the beginning, but I did not taste it by the end, and I have had this beer before on tap and not experienced that flavor. That’s really my only complaint with this easy sipper, though. New Hampshire does not have enough easy sipping beers with stellar flavor, but Stoneface is quickly filling in that gap with this beer. This brewery has been exciting me lately, and I can’t wait to see what else they concoct (I hear a RIS is in the making…).

Field Mouse’s Farewell (Pretty Things Beer & Ale Project)

Beer Style: Saison/Farmhouse Ale

7.0% ABV

38 IBU’s

Hops: Strisselspalt, Bramling Cross
Malt Variety: Pils, Rye, Oats, Wheat, Sorghum, Spelt, Buckwheat 

From: Somerville, MA/Gypsy Brewed
Brewery’s Note: “Fieldmouse’s Farewell is our Harvest-time seasonal beer. A saison that is slightly sweeter, slightly more full-bodied and golden than Jack D’Or, and therefore might be slightly more approachable, depending on your taste for hops (fewer bittering hops in this beer). The hops are wonderful, old-world French hops from Alsace. We happened upon them, along with their representatives, at the Craft Brewers’ Conference and we were immediately smitten.

image

2013′s “vintage” of this beer has even more grains than usual, with the usual high proportion of rye malt giving spiciness. We fermented with all one saison yeast and it’s a very saisony tasting beer this year. We are very happy./ Early Fall: the fruit and grains are ripe and nature’s work is almost done. It’s time to think of moving on… which is exactly what this little mouse is planning on doing, so find him while you can. You might notice that Field mouse has moved from Springtime to Harvest-time, because it seems like our mouse would be more likely to up-sticks at this time of year, with the fields becoming empty. Perhaps he is following the sun… Cheers to you all, hope summer was great and busy and that Fall will be peaceful and fruitful”

The beer pours the color of copper with a pink tint. A small head of eggshell-white bubbles forms above the beer, with bubbles so small the head appears as a continuous white color. When splashed along the sides of the glass, the beer leaves a thin sheet of lacing tendrils. In body, the beer is properly murky and opaque, though the edges give whispers of what lies beyond the glass. On the nose, the beer smells of wet and spicy grains. Subtle lemon grass citrus glides into an herbal grassiness beneath the rustic grains. On the tongue, the beer tastes grassy bitter. The middle of the sip takes on a creamy sweetness from the yeast alongside grassy hops, spicy grains, and then the finish is a smooth and bready sweetness with just a hiccup of herbal bitters on the finish. Subtle acidity pops towards the middle and finish of the beer, and a touch of earthy minerality. In flavor, the beer begins as grass and slight bubblegum/banana cream from isoamyl acetate, but that is kept in check by the middle of the sip with spicy rye, raw wheat, pale malt, and a nice wash of herbal hops. The finish has a brief touch of pepper flesh, rye spice, and earthy salinity which carries into the aftertaste. In the mouth, the beer feels on the lighter side of medium with a sharp carbonation that nicely scrubs the tongue while not stinging. Mouthfeel is crisp, yet with a creaminess that keeps it smooth over the tongue. Overall, this is a nice rustic and malty saison. I love the malt character, and the wonderful use of rye, but I also appreciate the restrained hop character. Pretty Things is doing the farmhouse game right between this and Jack D’Or. This is a lovely harvest sipper.

Remedy (From the Barrel Brewing Company)

Style:Imperial Porter

8.5% ABV

From: Londonderry, NH

The beer pours a milky dark brown with a light tan head of smaller bubbles. As it sits, it kind of reminds me of a good root beer in the glass. In body, the beer is opaque with milky cloudiness. It’s not gorgeous, but it has a muddy intrigue to its appearance. On the nose the beer is decadent with dark fruit notes of prunes and blended with a gorgeous bouquet of light roast coffee, dark chocolate, dark breads, subtle marshmallow, and nougat. On the tongue, the beer tastes fruity and chocolaty sweet, with a dry and bitter middle that evens into a swirl of soft bitters and rich bready sweetness in the finish. Subtle dark fruit acidity pops in the middle of the sip, and a slight alcoholic bite crackles at the finish.  In flavor, the beer begins as sweet prunes, raisins, and then dark oatmeal bread dipped in coffee. Mallow, peanut brittle, and nougat flavors cascade into the middle and finish of the beer, bringing further levels of complexity to this easy drinking dessert. The finish brings herbal bitters, alongside roast coffee bitters, tobacco smoke, as well as milk chocolate sweetness that lasts into the aftertaste. In the mouth, the beer feels medium bodied with a soft prickle from the carbonation that seems to die off, alongside a creamy mouthfeel. It’s not quite as substantial as I want it to be though, and I feel like the brewery could dial in their carbonation a touch more so that it fluffs the palate gently. When the beer leaves, the mouth is left dry and coated with papery stickiness that begs for another sip. Overall, this is a superbly complex, yet drinkable porter. FtB has really impressed me with this beer. They’re a new nano from the middle of New Hampshire, and this is the first beer I’ve tried from them. Color me impressed. The mouthfeel isn’t quite there yet, but the rest of the beer is superb and interesting to sip. I can’t wait to try some more from the brewery. 

Double Battle Axe (Kelsen Brewing Company)

Style: Double India Pale Ale

9.0% ABV

80 IBU’s

OG: 1.078

4.6 SRM

From: Derry, NH

Brewery’s Note: “This beer uses a “damn the cost” approach to recipe design. We use 6 lbs of hops per BBL with a majority of those hops being used in late whirlpool additions and dry hopping. Following our steadfast commitment to drinkability in our beers, the abundance of hops produces a significant citrusy aroma and creates a unique “hop nectar” flavor that will surely satisfy the Imperial IPA aficionado. This beer also has a very light, dry malt profile that allows the intense hop flavors to explode from the glass.”

The beer pours a dark copper/amber color with a lovely, sudsy head of off-white bubbles and great retention. In body, the beer is clear and clean, but does seem to have a haze to it. On the nose, this DIPA is firmly in the tropical fruit sector. Nuances of mango, juicy fruit, cantaloupe, and melon blend with prickly pine to make a succulent and sticky smelling beer. As I continue to smell, I start to pick out caramel bread crust notes, as well. On the tongue, the beer tastes initially bready sweet, but with a long, shivering bitter finish that dries out the tongue. Acidity lightly pops towards the middle of the sip, providing subtle complexity. In flavor, the beer begins as caramel bread with chunks of mango dried within it. The mango quickly grows into juicy, honeydew melon flavors that unfurl into prickly pine resin. The pine flavor quickly coats the tongue and sends bitter shivers up and down the palate. The aftertaste is of pine and medicinal bitters with a faint ghost of caramel.  In the mouth, the beer feels medium + bodied with a middling carbonation and a creamy, fluffed mouthfeel that feels luxurious on the tongue. The beer is decidedly less attenuated than some examples of the style, which gives it some definite weight, yet it still displays a drier finish. When the beer leaves, the tongue, is left sticky with resin, while faint trickles of spittle build in the cheeks. Overall, this is a lovely DIPA with some great hop character and a superb balance of malt and hops. It’s a little sweet for my taste in DIPA’s, but the dryness at the end does much to counter-act the initial sweetness, which I am definitely a fan of. This beer is a lovely example of the things to come from Kelsen, who have really been impressing me lately. Yay good beer from New Hampshire nanos! Keep up the good beer!

2014 Stickee Monkee (Firestone Walker Brewing Company)

Style: American Quad aged in Oak Barrels

13.4% ABV

20 IBU’s

OG: 30.17

67.5 SRM

Fermentation: Lucha Libre

From: Paso Robles, CA

Brewery’s Note; “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.”

image

The beer pours a deep, rich mahogany/maroon color, like dark maple syrup. It forms a tiny head of light khaki bubbles. Without light, the beer appears opaque, but when held before the light, it is quite clear and clean of particles, while giving off a black ruby coloring. When splashed against the sides of the glass it leaves thick legs of alcohol along the sides, as well as a flurry of lacing bubbles. On the nose, the beer is hugely expressive of rum-soaked raisins (or perhaps that’s bourbon-soaked raisins…) with thick brown sugar syrup, rich plums, subtle cocoa, toffee, fruit bread, bourbon, subtle oak, toasted coconut, slight Maraschino cherry, chocolate fudge, and a thousand subtler hints I just can’t lay my finger on. The nose is decadent in the extreme, and lies squarely on the boozy and sweet sides of the tracks, without appearing cloying. On the tongue, the beer tastes richly, bready sweet, with a balancing bite of booze and subtle bitters that drop off at the end to allow the finish and aftertaste to languor in succulent sweetness that keeps mostly away cloying notes that easily find their way into beers of this style. There may also be some acidity in the taste, as the beer has a slight sense of ‘pop’ to it, that reminds me a subtler acidic bite, and would not be out of place with a Quad yeast. In flavor, it begins as boozy chocolate fudge and bourbon-soaked raisins, which quickly is enveloped with marshmallow and brown sugar notes that also hint of cherries. Strong fusel alcohol notes burn through the nose and tongue on the beginning of the sip, but mellow away to simply a lingering and balancing bite by the finish of the beer. Plum and toffee notes, as well as chocolate pudding, unravel on the tongue as the sip progresses, and the finish is of boozy bourbon and brown sugar, while the aftertaste is of bourbon-soaked oak, subtle herbal bitters, and a lingering taste of (as my beautiful and brilliant girlfriend pointed out to me) maple sugar candy. In the mouth, the beer feels thick and luxurious, with a chewy, softly syrupy mouthfeel that languor’s over the tongue. It’s a touch flabby and under-attenuated, but that works for the style. You can feel the sugars on the tongue. Carbonation is weak-to-nearly-none-existent, but the alcoholic notes provide the bite where carbonation lacks, and that does wonders to keep the beer level. Overall, this is obviously a slow sipping drink, and it is certainly a bomber to share around the campfire. A full snifter is even a little too much of this digestif beer. The flavors are decadent and complex, as is the norm from the Proprietor’s Vintage series. It’s a great beer, but finishing a bottle of this will definitely put you at risk for diabetes. It is a decadent (how many times have I said that word now?) treat that can leave you feeling a little taxed by the time you reach the bottom of your glass. Have a glass of this beside a dark cigar and a long contemplation of life. As to its style? It’s more like a barleywine, but really it’s just its own beer. Central Coast Quad works fine by me.

2014 Prince Tuesday (Allagash Brewing, Maine Beer Company, Rising Tide Brewing)

Style: Belgian Rye Pale Ale

7.7% ABV

Brewery’s Note: “Prince Tuesday is a collaboration with Rising Tide Brewing and Maine Beer Company. The beer was originally brewed (on a small scale) for the first Maine Brewers’ Guild Festival in Boothbay, ME in 2011. It is a Belgian Rye Pale Ale. Brewed with Rye from Rising Tide, hopped by Maine Beer Company and fermented with the Allagash house yeast strain, we feel this beer was a collaboration in the truest sense of the word. A portion of the proceeds from this beer went to Portland Trails.”

The beer pours a lovely, rustic, dirty yellow with copper tints. The head is massive, eggshell white, and frothing, with excellent retention. When the head does settles down, it leaves fat, puffy clouds of lacing on the glass, with drooling tendrils running down to the receding head. In body, the beer is clean yet cloudy with an opacity to it that is proper to the style, and expected given the fact that I blended the yeast shot in (that’s the way I like it…). On the nose, the beer smells of spicy citrus. The rye malt gives lovely, bready spice characters while the yeast and hops tango on the nose with lemon citrus, grass, lemon grass, subtle pineapple, slight mango, and good old fashion phenols. On the tongue, the beer tastes sweet and bitter up front, though the sweet moves into a more dominant stance in the middle and finish of the sip, before giving way to a lingering bitter and dry aftertaste that makes the beer a balanced tango of bitter and sweet, which I love. Acidity is also present as a subtle citric pop at the beginning and finish of the beer, as well as some nice earthy notes that round out the taste. In flavor, the beer begins as spicy herbal hops and lemongrass citrus. This transitions into a sweeter bready funk with definite rye spice and herbal hops lingering over the top of the flavors. In the finish, the beer is funky fruity, with touches of pineapple and peach, which slowly transitions into the aftertaste of herbal bitters. In the mouth, the beer feels medium bodied, with a crisp but decidedly sharper mouthfeel, which is my only quibble with this beer. The carbonation comes off nearly creamy on the tongue, but something is giving quite a touch too much astringency and a stabbing feeling to the tongue, which is unfortunate given how fantastic the beer is to drink. The sharpness helps the beer stay supremely drinkable, and cuts through flavors that could be a little heavier, but it leaves the tongue tingling with slight ‘burn’ feeling, and feels a little aggressive as it passes over the taste buds. Outside of the fierce bite, the mouthfeel is still quite sublime though. Overall, I like this beer. I could six-pack it, or at least four-pack it. It will pair supremely with a wide variety of lighter and medium bodied foods, for sure, and is a great candidate for casual drinking settings. Its flavors are crisp, and its only drawback is the slightly stabbing mouthfeel. This is a superb collaboration beer for three local superstars to roll out once a year. It takes a nice balance between all three companies ‘house-styles.’ I like this beer, and will be having it again.
