Skipjack Belgian Saison

 

A note from the brewer: “If I could only have one beer for the rest of my life, I would choose Skipjack. It has everything I love in a beer — loads of character, perfect drinkability, thirst-quenching, gorgeous color, pairs with everything, great for cooking, suitable for any time of year, and ideal alcohol content. Plus, it’s loaded with fond memories for me, as my dad introduced me to this style in Belgium 30 years ago, and we had a great time crushing it.”

Overall Impression: No funky “barnyard” character here; the focus is on the traditional refreshing, thirst-quenching aspects of the style, perfect for hot weather and easy food pairings.

Profile: Highly aromatic; prominent fruity character from Belgian yeast, but not funky; mild black pepper spice and some basil notes; restrained bitterness and mild tartness complement the orange citrus notes; highly carbonated and effervescent; grainy Pilsner malt mouthfeel yields to a dry, snappy finish, inviting the next drink.

 

48 Fathom Porter

Overall Impression: Rich in malt character, but not heavy, this smooth Porter boasts bold chocolate aromas with hints of toast and coffee.

Profile: Dark Munich malts dominate, supported by caramel, chocolate, toast, and coffee flavors. Roasty character is restrained. Hop character is absent. Body is medium-full, mouthfeel is creamy, especially as it warms. Even though alcohol is moderate, no alcohol impression is apparent in aroma or flavor. There is just enough bitterness to wind up the malt-sweet mid-palate, for a smooth, satisfying finish.

 

Sunfish Session Pale Ale

Overall Impression: A crisp, easy-drinking pint with a pronounced hop aroma, but not the assertive bitterness of an IPA. Light, fruity, and highly drinkable.

Profile: Bright tropical/citrus hops greet you in the nose, followed by a gentle grapefruit flavor with light mouthfeel and crisp, mildly bitter finish in classic pale ale style. This beer boasts big character and drinkability, but lower alcohol so you can have a pint and still keep your wits about you.

 

Total Eclipse Belgian Black Ale

Overall Impression: A highly aromatic, drinkable style-bender that combines Belgian yeast fruitiness and spiciness with prominent notes of chocolate and some coffee. Think of it as a Belgian Porter.

Profile: Intense initial aromatic impression. Belgian fruitiness harmonizes perfectly with chocolate and coffee aromas. Abundant Vienna and Munich malts provide body, but high attenuation of the Belgian yeast makes for a dry finish more typical of a black lager. Roasty character is restrained. Hop character is absent. Mouthfeel is exceptionally smooth and creamy.

 

  • Betty’s Island
  • Blonde Ale
  • 5.1% IBU 17

Overall Impression: An ale masquerading as a Bavarian lager. Notes of honey and bread complemented by classic noble hop aroma. Approachable, but far more interesting than the typical thin macro lager.

Profile: Rich golden color. A thick, pure white head diffuses subtle aromas of honey, bread, and floral hops. Some very mild fruitiness does distinguish it from a German lager. Effervescent and aromatic. Pilsner and Vienna malts provide a little backbone in the mid-palate. Finishes crisp and clean, with a mild and rapidly fading noble hop character.
