Beachwood Blendery Propagation Series 128

What the brewers say

“Ale with spelt, Brettanomyces, and Mosaic hops. Fermented with a blend of Saccharomyces and Brettanomyces in stainless-steel, aged for a short time, then dry hopped with Mosaic hops.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Moderate passion fruit and peach notes up front with light white peppery spiciness. Juicy hops blend into fruity esters with a bit of barnyard funk. Hoppy, earthy, lemon, and a hint of Brett.

Flavor: “Juicy peach and passion fruit meet earthy Brett funk. Light tartness throughout with a bit of bitterness in the finish. Creamy consistency with a dry finish and pleasant effervescence. A bit of herbal hops in the background. Some apricot and lemon esters balanced with spicy phenolics and a bit of barnyard, leather funk.”

Overall: “Big fruity peach notes with a rather dry finish. Dryness and high carbonation make this very crushable. A unique and complex example of the style with a nice expression of subtle Brett complexity and a confident sense of balance. Only gripe would be the slightly thin body, but otherwise, nearly flawless.”
