I always feel so tired on my first day back to work after the weekend. This week was no different. I went into work early today and there were a lot of higher ups in the office. That’s never a good combination for an easy day. I got home later than normal tonight, but the other half is still stuck at work. So, that means I get to bang out some reviews of the Sierra Nevada Beer Camp beers. I was really excited to try this one, which is a Belgian Pale Ale that was brewed with Allagash, who puts out seriously good stuff. Let’s see how this one went.
Style: Belgian Pale Ale
Trivia: This was brewed in collaboration with Allagash Brewing Company.
Random: I’m watching “Rizolli & Isles” because the other half is DVRing too many things for me to switch the channel. It’s not awful.
This beer poured with a one finger, pure white head that dissipated slowly and left some lacing on the glass. It also left a small crown on top of the clear, golden-yellow body with high carbonation. The nose had a lot of Belgian yeast up front with white pepper, coriander and citrus. The taste started with some bitter hops and grapefruit and quickly went into Belgian yeast, coriander and some pine. The body was on the thicker side and dry with high carbonation. It had a long finish with some pine and bitterness. This was a pretty good beer. It wasn’t mindblowing, but definitely good and you can put back a few.
