We’ve been really busy at work lately, in advance of the holiday. Since I haven’t worked in clinical trials for an extended period time and with COVID-19, I’m never exactly sure when we’re going to be super busy. I’m looking forward to spending the weekend and putting my feet up.
Style: American Wild Ale
Trivia: According to wikipedia.com, “A semilunar pastry with either a sweet or savory filling, formed by placing a dollop of filling onto a circular piece of biscuit-style dough and then folding it over and crimping it shut. They may be baked, fried or deep-fried. A pasty.”
Random: I have never had a hand pie. I’m not a huge fan of sweets, although Val is an outstanding baker and makes some of the best sweet treats that I have ever had.
The beer poured with a half a finger of pinkish tinged head that dissipated quickly, leaving no lacing on the glass. It did leave a small crown on top of the body. The body was a deep reddish-pink color with no visible carbonation due to the color. The nose was very tart and filled with berries. There was a slight amount of vanilla as well. The taste was also very powerfully tart. The underripe berries hit in the palate all at the same time with only a bit of graham cracker and vanilla to back it up. There was a decent amount of alcohol as well on this. The body was on the medium side with some carbonation present. The finish was lengthy and a bit too tart for me. I was really excited about this beer, it was just too intense for me. I wouldn’t rush back to this one.
