A Note on This Beer
Winter is obviously the best time to fall in love. There are twinkly lights everywhere, cold weather for cuddling… the kids don’t call it “cuffing season” for nothing!
Not that I needed another reason to fall head over heels for the The Rare Barrel, but these Sour specialists just released a romantically tangy pour that has me swooning: today’s Bae Breeze (2019) Sour Ale.
Brewed with real pineapple chunks, cranberry, grapefruit, and lime zest, every sip tastes like a tart, fruity rainbow sherbet you’d get while on a date!
Aromas of tropical pineapple juice brim from a sunset-red pour. Take a sip, and let ripe, drippy berries explode in a wave of tanginess, while undertones of funk and woody spice from oak-aging add complexity. The 7.5% ABV breezes onto the palate like a lover’s gentle kiss.
I’m not the only one obsessed with The Rare Barrel’s meticulously crafted small-batch wonders. HopCulture listed them as one of their Best Breweries of 2019, and Paste Mag ranked them as #12 on their list of the 50 Best Breweries of the Decade, applauding their “consistently creative and transcendent sour releases.”
Whether you’re falling in love with these Cali craft masters for the first or hundredth time, snagging today’s transcendence-in-a-bottle will give you some delicious company to snuggle up with this winter.
