Off Color Market Rate

I’m finally getting through my backlog of beers and am almost a month ahead in posting. It makes life so much easier when I have posts scheduled, so I don’t have to worry that I’m going to miss one.

ABV: 6.5%

Style: American Wild Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “At some point John and Dave were born. They did other stuff for a while and then they figured out they were better at making beer than at the other stuff. So that’s what they do now. They met while both studied at the oldest and most respected brewing school (of the two…and by the brewers that went to the one) in the US, the Siebel Institute, in 2008 and the brewery was envisioned while they both interned at Metropolitan Brewing afterwards. Most of Off Color’s business plan is based off of Doug and Tracy at Metro knowing what they’re doing, so you should go buy some of their beer too. After cutting their teeth at larger breweries, the two somehow convinced enough otherwise-very-smart-people to invest enough money for them to buy some big shiny things to make their own beer in. So that’s what they do now.”

Random: This beer is now retired.

This beer poured with a half a finger of white head that dissipated as soon as I took the picture. It left no lacing on the glass, but did leave a small crown on top of the bright yellow body. It was hazy with no visible carbonation. The nose started with a lot of funk and quickly went into ripe strawberries. It was a pleasant combination. The taste was more of the same. It had a lot of brett and funk and tartness, but was quickly followed up by tons of ripe strawberries. The body was on the medium side with a lot of carbonation. It had a medium length finish with strawberries. I aged this beer for awhile, I forgot how much I paid for it, but this was another quality beer from Off Color.

Untappd Rating: 4.0/5.0
