Tonight’s selection is from one of my favorite breweries. Let’s see how it was.
Style: Belgian Blonde Ale
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “At some point John and Dave were born. They did other stuff for a while and then they figured out they were better at making beer than at the other stuff. So that’s what they do now. They met while both studied at the oldest and most respected brewing school (of the two…and by the brewers that went to the one) in the US, the Siebel Institute, in 2008 and the brewery was envisioned while they both interned at Metropolitan Brewing afterwards. Most of Off Color’s business plan is based off of Doug and Tracy at Metro knowing what they’re doing, so you should go buy some of their beer too. After cutting their teeth at larger breweries, the two somehow convinced enough otherwise-very-smart-people to invest enough money for them to buy some big shiny things to make their own beer in. So that’s what they do now.”
Random: Val and I are watching “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off” since I’ve never seen it before.
The beer poured with a half a finger of white head that dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was clear and bright orange. There was light carbonation visible. The nose had a lot of honey sweetness to it with some Belgian spice as well. There was a touch of yeast. The taste was pretty sweet as well with lots of floral honey notes along with coriander and Belgian yeast. The body was heavier than expected with light carbonation. It had a sticky and lengthy honey finish. I was excited to try this beer, but it was a bit too sweet for me. I wouldn’t have it again.
