Ever have a brewery that you like that can basically do no wrong? Epic is pretty close to that for me. Almost every beer that I’ve tried has been insanely good and one that I would definitely revisit. One of the beers that I really enjoyed was their Brainless on Peaches. Despite being told that this wasn’t as good as their other offerings by my beer buddy iCarly, I went for it anyway with high hopes.
Style: Fruit/Vegetable Beer
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Hints of raspberry bubble gum flavors from the Belgian yeast and fresh raspberries tease the pallet in this Brainless® offering.”
Random: I don’t understand how people think they will get an unbiased jury for the second sentencing for Jodi Arias. It’s been one of the most publicized cases that I’ve seen in recent memory.
This one poured with a half a finger of white head that dissipated quickly. It left very little lacing on the glass. The body was a cloudy reddish-brown color with high carbonation visible throughout. The nose was straight out raspberry. I didn’t get anything else. It smelled almost like a lambic. The taste was tart raspberry up front. Some sweetness came out at the end of the sip. I expected a little more yeast to it as well. I didn’t get any bubble gum flavors either. All I got was total raspberry dominance. The body was thick with high carbonation. The finish was quick with raspberries. I guess iCarly was right. The was a one-trick pony. Definitely not as good as I thought it would be.
