Beer Review #25: Blue Moon First Peach Ale

Bottle description: Slightly tart with notes of peach and coriander.

ABV: 5.6%

My thoughts: This has a mild peach scent with slight undertones of malt. It tastes pretty peachy, which is nice. Its always a plus when a fruit based beer actually tastes like the fruit its allegedly made with instead of… well… nothing. Its got a sweet base with the promised slight tartness. You can taste the coriander as well (also surprising!) and it makes for a very nice contrast with the sweet fruit taste. Strong carbonation gives it a nice zing. Its got a very full body and is remarkably rich feeling. The color bears noting; its a rich, almost golden red color. It’s pretty eye catching and unique, which matches the unique flavor well. It leaves a very light and pleasant aftertaste that is reminiscent of its namesake fruit. I tore through a six pack of these pretty quick. It’s one of the more enjoyable beers I’ve had from Blue Moon. Their seasonals tend to be really hit or miss. I’m happy to say that this one was a solid hit.

Beer Review #10: Troegs Mad Elf

I finished my night off with this fine beer. I first had it last November and it really caught my attention. Earlier in the year I had tried Sam Adams Double Chocolate Cherry, a beer that I can only describe as transcendent. Since then, I was looking for a beer with a similar cherry or chocolate flavor. This beer really nailed the cherry flavor.

Menu description: Cherry notes, brown sugar, mix of sweet spices.

ABV: 11%

Beer Review #9: 2013 Anchor Christmas Ale

Update: Yeah, so this experiment in real time writing while drinking didn’t really go anywhere. I think I did this for maybe 2-3 weeks before calling it quits. Keeping notes in Evernote and fighting the WordPress app to update the website without posting enormous versions of the pictures and trying to actually hang out with my friends was just a bit too much to juggle at once.

Yes, yes, I know it’s been forever. Why has it been forever? I’m fucking lazy, that’s why! On with the show!

So I’ve decided that on Mondays I’m gonna update this shit real time as I drink these beers. Unfortunately, this Monday all the beers are repeats from last week, so my thoughts are all from last week, but you haven’t seen them so you wouldn’t know anyway!
