The Bruery Provisions Series Gunga Galunga
From The Bruery – A black beer with Thai influence. Brewed with brettanomyces, kaffir lime leaves and galangal (also known as Thai Ginger, but it’s not too ginger-like), this smooth, dry and roasty beer has clear notes of fresh citrus, crushed herbs and will complement a spicy curry beautifully.
The Bruery – The Bruery Provisions Series Gunga Galunga – 750 ml. bottle poured into a goblet. 7.7% abv.
Appearance: Pours a midnight brown with a creamy tan cap.
Aroma: Lime, ginger and light roast.
Taste: Ginger, roast and lime…in that order. Alcohol is well hidden. I had this fairly new and didn’t pick assertive amounts of Brett for being 100% brett fermented. I’m sure at the 6-12 month mark, this beer would be a bit different.
Mouthfeel: Medium, sticky with lively carbonation.
Overall: I enjoyed this beer immensely. I could drink a good deal of this, and wouldn’t mind pairing it with spicy cuisine. Hot wings, thai food, hot links, you get the idea.
