The Bruery Melange No. Sechs
From Dan – Even living 19.5 miles from The Bruery, I know I will never be able to try every single new beer that passes through their taps from now until the end of time. Since the holiday season, they have released 2 Turtle Doves, Mischief, Oude Tart, Barrel Aged Partridge in a Pear Tree, Melange #5 (Dirty Beaver Juice Weekend), Humulus XPA, and super rare pilot batches including Amulet. This week, in The Bruery’s What’s On Tap email, they announced another a new Melange beer, Melange #6 also known as Melange No. Sechs.. Here is the description of this crazy blend of crazy beer and ingredients. As long as they keep on pumping out the hits, I can’t complain at how quick they are doing it.
The next beer is the latest in our Melange series that’s been brewed especially for Valentine’s Day; this is number six – or No. Sechs as we’ve dubbed it. Melange no. Sechs is primarily made up of an experimental beer brewed with beets for a festive red color before cocoa nibs and rose petals are added. It’s then blended with White Oak Sap (our bourbon barrel aged wheat wine) & bourbon barrel aged Rugbrød The resulting beer is 9% ABV and has an earthy flavor with a pleasant chocolate & vanilla nose and a subtle floral hint all wrapped in an incredibly smooth package. Sound Sechsy? It is!
The Bruery – Melange #6 aka Melange No. Sechs – On tap at The Bruery – 9% abv.
Appearance: Pours a cloudy fruit punch with a few bubbles at the top.
Aroma: Perfume, red wine, fruit punch and cocoa.
Taste: Chocolate, cherry, vanilla, wood and redwine.
Mouthfeel: Thick and a tad silky.
Overall: Very awesome. I couldn’t pull anything from Rugbrod or Barrel Aged Rugbrod. I found the White Oak, I found the floral notes as well as the cocoa nibs.
