Three Floyds Ruggoop
From Three Floyds & Mikkeller – Three Floyds Mikkeller Ruggoop (10,4%): Rye Wine. Tredje gang er lykkens gang…. Denne gang har Mikkeller og Three Floyds brygget en Rye Wine, med masser af rug, malt, lækker humle og gær. Og lidt vand. Enjoy!
Three Floyds Brewing – Three Floyds/Mikkeller Ruggoop – 22 oz. bottle poured into a goblet. 10.4% abv. Thanks to Bobby “The Fire” Sullivan from IN!
Appearance: Pours a bright auburn with a creamy beige head that subsides to a thin white film. Leaves behind sparse spotty lacing.
Aroma: Peach, tangerine, spice (all spice perhaps?), and big piny hops.
Taste: Bitter, piny American hops, earthy malt, ripe peach.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, juicy, sticky with moderate carbonation.
Overall: Compared to Oatgoop, this seems much more complex, a bit more earthy and bitter. It’s pretty tasty for sure. I could see this beer further developing nicely.
