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.

 

 

Coral Bay IPA

Overall Impression: Especially complex, intense hop aroma; a malty sweet palate enhances the vivid tropical fruitiness, but finishes in perfect balance thanks to a firm, smooth, lingering bitterness.

Profile: Here is the perfect balance of dank, pine, tropical fruit, and stone fruit aromas. Initial dank and mild pine aromas yield to an indeterminate combination of coconut, pineapple, and mango top notes. A bit of sweet caramel malt character on the palate enhances the impression of fruitiness, but isn’t cloying, as it is skillfully balanced by just the right amount of bitterness. As the glass warms, notice the development of peach-apricot aromas.
