I love Mystic’s beers, I just don’t like that their website doesn’t have all of their beers on it. I have to make a trip out to the brewery at some point.
Style: American Wild Ale
Trivia: I couldn’t find anything about this beer online, but there is a hotel in Paris named “De Varenne” that looks beautiful.
Random: Their label art is really unique and stunning. It’s simple too.
The beer was in a corked and caged bottle, but there was no pop of the cork. This beer is showing as retired, so I’m not sure how old it was. But, either way, it poured with a quarter finger of white head. It went away quickly and left no lacing on the glass. There was a decent amount of carbonation and the body was apple juice colored. The nose was filled with some young oak, golden raisins, white apple juice and apple skins. The taste was also quite fruity. It had white grape juice and skins along with golden raisins. There was also apple juice, oak and lemon peel. I didn’t get much funk on this, but the fruity flavors made up for it. The body was thin with light carbonation. I wish there was bit more. The finish was quick with white grapes. This was a beer gift from my parents, so I have no idea how much it was. I enjoyed this beer a lot. I just wish there was more funk and carbonation to it.
