The other day I had another opportunity to visit zany Hug Coffee Espresso Roasters in Aoi Ku, Shizuoka City as they had announced on Facebook that they were serving an extremely limited brew by Baird Beer Co!
It is another collaboration beer made with apples from Nagano Prefecture: Double Strike Apple Ale!
But as Hug Coffee Espresso Roaster received only 36 bottles you will have to hurry!
Name: Baird Beer Double Strike Apple Ale!
Bottle contents: 330 ml
Wheat, malt, sugars, Nagano prefecture apples, live yeast
Bubbles: very fine bubbles. Long head. Creamy. White
Clarity: slightly smoky (normal considering live yeast and being unfiltered), very clean
Color: dull deep orange
Aroma: assertive and fruity. Apples
Taste: Dry and fruity attack.
Very refreshing. Drinks more like a cider tan a beer.
Overall: very interesting fruit craft beer.
Very refreshing and easy to drink.
Will please ladies in particular, although gentlemen will find it perfect or an afternoon beer!
Vastly superior to fruit beers found on the market!
