Since we live in a pretty rural area, we get our share of animals. One of the coolest things that we’ve seen is a newly born fawn. Our backyard is fenced, but the lock broke, so the deer have been going there. One day, I walked into the backyard and there was the smallest fawn that I have ever seen. It was absolutely adorable. I saw it again today and it’s finally steady on its hooves.
Style: American Wild Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Residing in and revitalizing the South Slope District of Asheville, NC, the brewery began its life in summer 2013 as a one-barrel system that grew to a ten-barrel in just over a year. It is now fed from our production facility, barrelhouse and taproom brewery.”
Random: I need to make my way to Asheville at some point.
The beer poured with a finger and a half of reddish-tan head. It dissipated quickly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was hazy and had a lot of floaties. It was also sienna colored. The nose had a lot of tartness. It had some tropical notes with pomegranate and dragon fruit with some wheat and kumquat as well. The taste started with some sour wheat and quickly went into sour fruit as well. I picked up the same pomegranate, lemon and dragon fruit that was in the nose. There was also a significant yeast characteristic. The body was moderately heavy with lots of carbonation. It had a lengthy sour finish. Beer gifts are the best, so I have no idea how much it was. I thought this beer was interesting, but I wasn’t the biggest fan.
