The Bruery Provisions Series: Snicklefritz
From The Bruery – Snicklefritz is a citrusy, spiced, oaked Golden Strong Ale originally developed and homebrewed by Kyle Manns. It is spiced with cardomom, ginger, juniper berries and coriander, along with fresh lemon, orange, grapefruit and tangerine zests. After fermentation, the already complex concoction was aged on oak cubes to add one more layer of flavor. We’ve production brewed it at The Bruery. Original batch was 9.2% ABV. The newest release (bottled as a Provisions Series beer) is 10% ABV.
The Bruery – The Bruery Provisions Series: Snicklefritz – 750 ml. bottle poured into a goblet. 10% abv.
Appearance: Pours a hazy amber gold with a white foamy head.
Aroma: Spicy bay leaf. Cardamom nutmeg cinnamon. Bready malt.
Taste: Holiday spices: cinnamon, nut meg, all spice. A little sweetness. Some pepper. The alcohol is well hidden behind the bombardment of spicy flavors.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied and fizzy.
Overall: A tasty spiced beer. I think The Bruery could have fun making slight variations for this beer for, oh lets say for Thanksgiving or Christmas.
