Tripel Abbey Style Ale – Torchlight Brewing


From Torchlight Brewing in Nelson BC comes their “Tripel Abbey Style Ale”.  The beer pours a cloudy copper colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of mango, melon, peaches, grapefruit candied sugar and sweetness.  The flavour is of toffee, candied sugar, fruit, mango, melon, peaches, grapefruit, coriander, mild earth, vanilla and mild alcohol.  The alcohol content comes in at 9% with an IBU of 38.  Some Tripels are really overly sweet but this one is not.  The flavour is great and I wish I could get more bottles.

Nectarous Dry Hopped Sour – Four Winds Brewing Company


Extremely limited release

From Four Winds Brewing in Delta BC comes their “Nectarous Dry Hopped Sour”.  This beer falls withing the Eurus Series beers that come in 750ml bottles with a cork and cage.  The beer pours a cloudy orange colour with white head.  The aroma consists of peaches, nectarines, citrus, passion fruit and an overall sweetness.  The flavour is of a medium lactobacillus tartness, peaches, nectarines, citrus, passion fruit, lime, sweetness, a touch of brettanomyces funk and a very mild hops bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 5.5% with an IBU of 61.  I thought that their Saison Brett was epic but I think this may have surpassed even that!  Cascade Brewing in Portland better watch out!

Commercial Description:  “In the pursuit of sour, peach and nectarine play lead, while galaxy hops lend notes of citrus and passionfruit.” NECTAROUS is a dry-hopped, kettle soured beer that is intended to drink fresh! Keep refrigerated!
