Beachwood Earthbound Misfit

One of the things I wanted to do while in Colorado was visit Falling Rock Tap House, but since it was GABF, it was packed every night. We waited until the end of GABF and stopped by to see what the fuss was about.

ABV: 6.2%

Style: American Wild Ale

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “BEER DONE RIGHT. 22 rotating taps and one cask-conditioned beer have been hand-selected for your drinking pleasure. We take pride in serving rare and unique first-rate beers. That means special brews that not only enhance the food we serve, but also represent some of the finest beers locally and around the world. Based on the ten kegs we go through a week, we like to think we can convert anyone. But don’t be surprised if you come in and don’t see the beer you drank yesterday. When it’s gone, dunzo. Adiós! You’ll be lucky to have the same beer twice. (Increase the odds that Lady Luck shines upon you by visiting us more often.)”

Random: I wanted to go to Beachwood when I had a work trip in California, but ran out of time.

The beer poured with a three finger, loose, cream-colored head. It took awhile to dissipate and left a lot of spiderweb lacing on the glass. The body was cloudy and light brown in color. There was no carbonation visible due to the cloudiness. The nose was filled with funk and vinegar. Instantly, the aroma of kumquats along with oranges and lemon slices. The taste started with some mouth puckering tartness. The vinegar note came through immediately with kumquats. The oranges and lemons came through next along with hay and a wet dog note. The body was on the lighter side with lots of carbonation. It had a lengthy finish with funk. I enjoyed this beer a lot and would have it again.

Untappd Rating: 4.0/5.0
