Val and I visited SingleCut in Queens when we were visiting friends there. We made some time to try a beer and pick up some cans as well.
Style: American Wild Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “THIS COMBINATION OF BRETT FERMENTED, lacto finished ale was further enhanced with a guava fruit infusion. Tart, sweet, funky, fruity and downright thirst quenching. It’s sure to reverberate on your palatte, if not your mind.”
Random: I had a guava creme brulee once and it was amazing.
The beer poured with a wispy, one finger, white head. It went away slowly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was hazy and bright yellow in color. There was limited carbonation visible, despite the cloudiness. The nose was filled with lots of funk and horse blanket, but also had a huge amount of guava and orange segments. The taste was even more complex than the nose. There was significant funk with tartness and horse blanket. There was a lot of yeast as well and as soon as that note went away, it was all about the fruit. Juicy orange and guava and even a hint of watermelon came through. There was no alcohol on the taste at all. The body was on the lighter side with plenty of carbonation to make this go down a bit too easily. The finish was lengthy and filled with funk. This beer was really unique and I loved the combination and balance of the funk and the fruit. If you ever find this beer around and you like funky beers, this is worth a glass.
