We've been doing a lot of Pumpkins, Oktoberfest (actually, only one marze...so far. There are many more coming), and other fall beers lately, I thought today would be a good day to switch it up with something different.
This'll do nicely.
Taste-Lemon, banana, and sadly, some alcohol on the swallow.
Mouthfeel-Light bodied, crisp, and a bit dry going down.
Drinkability-This is the taste I often associate with "Belgian beers" and it's not one that I overly enjoy. Being as objective as possible, I like it on the lips but the taste of alcohol dampens my enjoyment of the brew.
Verboten is brewed with pale, carahell, and wheat malts, and hopped with Centennial and Cascade hops to give it a distinctly American character. The medium bodied beer has a crisp palate and moderate bitterness coupled with the fruity esters from the abbey yeast strain.
