Tonight’s beer is from a brewery that I am growing to love. Transmitter puts out some great beers, and I’m hoping this one is as good as the others.
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Beer is much more than the sum of its parts. At its most pure form, it’s just four simple ingredients: hops, malt, water and yeast. It is only through the synergy of process and those basic building blocks that unique and interesting interpretations of beer styles are possible. Through the process of brewing, it is possible to make an infinite number of flavor combinations and styles. It is this endless creative possibility that fuels and flames our passion for fermenting beer. Our satisfaction comes from the combination of the basic understanding of the ingredients and their interactions and the ‘aha’ moments of discovery of the synergy between them.”
Random: The cats are wrestling right now and sound like elephants.
This beer poured with a three finger, pink-tinted head. It took awhile to dissipated and left no lacing on the glass. The body was a dark red with no visible carbonation due to the color and cloudiness. The nose had light funk and cranberries along with citrus pith. The taste has some significant tartness that was almost vinegar-like. There was also yeast was present along with cranberries and orange. There wasn’t a lot of salt, but the flavors worked, so I didn’t miss it that much. The body had medium thickness with high carbonation. The beer had a quick finish with orange pith. This was an expensive bottle at $20 ($.91 per ounce), but worth every penny. This was another awesome beer from Transmitter.
