Evil Twin – Ryan and the Beaster Bunny: Brewed in Connecticut by Two Roads ala Evil Twin Brewing, this Easter farmhouse ale measures up at 7.0% alcohol and was poured from a 12 oz bottle at home to help celebrate Easter. I love a good theme, so it was great to find a fitting beer, even if it is just clever marketing.
Aroma and Appearance: Pours a hazy blonde with two fingers of foam with loads of tiny bubbles rising from the bottom of the glass. Aroma consists of corriander and peppery spice.
Flavour: Like most farmhouse ales, this one has a bit of funky sour flair to it with a light body and a nice dry peppery finish. Actually a Saison, It goes down easy, has the right amount of bittering hops and the perfect mouthfeel for the style.
Overall Impression: this has everything going for it, a nice clove aroma, a good peppery finish, an awesome name and bottle and is a well executed example of the style.
Rating: I give it a 9/10, it’s awesome as the balance of flavours come together perfectly and offers everything I expect from a Saison and more.
Food Pairing: Easter dinner, what else?
