Val and I started watching the new season of the New York version of Real Housewives. It’s one of my guilty pleasures that helps me destress from work. This season looks like it is going to be absolutely bananas.
Style: Cream Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “The realm of the pastry chef essentially breaks down into two distinct arenas; decadent ‘rock your world’ chocolate confections and, the necessarily more creative, ‘shake your beliefs’ non-chocolate creations. Pastry Cream ales are our foray into the sweeter side of inspiration from the other side of the dessert menu. Will It Waffle? is an imperial cream ale brewed with almond flour, maple syrup, Belgian waffles, bananas and vanilla. Drink Will It Waffle? because if you are gonna face the pastry plate, stack it high.”
Random: This beer comes in at 25 IBUs.
The beer poured with a hugely thick, cream-colored head. It dissipated at a moderate pace and left some lacing on the glass. The body was cloudy and a dark yellow color. There was limited carbonation visible. The nose was filled with maple syrup, almonds, white sugar and vanilla. The taste was really sweet and had a lot of almond with banana and tons of maple syrup and toffee. There was a touch of booze as well. The body was thick with moderate carbonation. The finish was sweet and lengthy with lots of vanilla and maple. I thought this beer was good, just a bit too sweet for my taste. I’m glad that I got to give it a shot.
