The Veil Brewing Company Culminate

What the brewers say

Our first ever blend of turbid-mashed one-, two-, and three-year old spontaneously fermented lambic-inspired ales designed in the spirit of Belgian gueuze. The layered flavors of funky fruit, cheesy hops, gentle oak, a bright citrus acid profile, and a pleasant natural carbonation give this beer unrivaled complexity for its strength.

What our panel thought

Nose of stone fruit, mango, and guava, with leather, earth, and barnyard. Funk-forward flavor with peach, lemongrass, hay, and a slightly bitter leathery note carrying into the finish. Smooth acidity draws citrus and tropical fruit across the palate; a touch of sweetness helps to balance it. Nice complexity. Lovely nose provides insight into what's coming. Very nice beer.

What our editors thought

Deep woody cellar on the nose, like a limestone cave—humid, with blue-cheese funk wafting. The sip tempers the cheesy funk with malty caramel, as light bitterness lingers over the sweet funk—dry and succinct. Remarkable.
