So, much to the chagrin of actually respected beer writers, I’m back after only a tiny hiatus(hah).
Consider my time away as required hibernation, time needed to adjust to the changing landscape of craft beer.
Consider that if you will, I mean it’s a lie and I’m just lazy. But I’m happy to go with the fabricated alternative if you are.
Blasta Brewing Tangerine Dreams.
Look, in the spirit of continued honesty, I don’t get Heffes.
I dontd enjoy them, I think it boils down to the fact I strongly dislike banana’s they are a vile bright yellow Devil Fruit, and I just inherit a massive hatred of the flavour.
Blasta is a good little brewing project that has popped around at festivals and events, and they just opened their own venue, and me deciding I’d break from my usual routine of being beaten at online games by prepubescent Koreans and mosy on down.
Back to the beer.
Apricot colour, but with a head that dissolves quicker than a cabal of nazi soldiers opening the Ark of The Covenant.
Soon as this beer makes it’s way past my beard and into my face, well the only thing I can think is… “Fuck me that’s sweet.”
But I do like citrus and this beer is packing a metric ahittone of it.
“Alright I think, sweet yes, but amazing citrus, mandarin, grapefruit and of course tangerine.”
And then the Banana hits.
I hang my head low, I mean I knew this was coming.
Fuck I hate banana.
My hatred for nature’s cheesecake aside, it’s a solid well crafted beer.
Though with the massive sweetness, I could’nt see myself drinking much of it.
3 out of 5 Banana’s.
Untill next time and remember, always drink from a glass.
