The Bruery Provisions Series Bierbauch
From The Bruery – Meaning Beer Belly in German, Bierbauch is the Provisions Series ale for the month of May 2011, so of course we had to make a Maibock! And we’re The Bruery, so of course we had to make it imperial! And why stop there when you can age it in oak barrels for a few months? The last strong beer you’ll need before the heatwave of summer is upon us, this verson of the traditional German lager is rich and oaky.
The Bruery – The Bruery Provisions Series Bierbauch – 750 ml. bottle poured into a goblet. 8.6% abv.
Appearance: Pours a semi cloudy bright yellow gold with a thin off white cap of foam.
Aroma: Grain and cat box.
Taste: Big biscuity malt, grassy hops. My imagination came up with “Imperial Green Bottled Lager.” as a way to describe this. The oak pops out as the beer warms up.
Mouthfeel: Fizzy, full bodied.
Overall: This didn’t do it for me, but was a fun concept, and willing to try it again if it’s made again.
