COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In a surprising turn of events, rival superpowers have joined forces to bring a beer of might to the world. According to top-secret documents, recently unclassified, brewmasters for 21st Amendment in California and Ninkasi in Oregon began their brewing careers together many years ago. ALLIES WIN THE WAR! is 21st Amendment Brewery’s first ever collaboration beer, a traditional English-style Strong ale aged on native California dates and dry hopped with all-Northwest aroma hops. Available now in limited edition four-pack cans and draft.

Old ale with dates.

This is just a great beer collaboration from some great brewing companies, and it is my favorite from 21st amendment. There is nothing there beer does wrong. Let’s start first with the color. It’s perfect. Yes I gave appearance a 5/5. It’s the most perfect dark copper color you ever did see. OK. next up is the taste. It’s amazing. Sweet and hoppy and warm with alcohol. It makes me happy. Lastly, the packaging is awesome. This matters. Buy a couple cubes and stick a red bow on the top. Makes a great christmas gift. Share the gift of good beer this holiday season.

FURLYSURIOUS (263) - Orono, Minnesota, USA - MAR 8, 2012
Pours a deep ruby, almost purple hues with a healthy two finger tan cap and consistent lacing. Smells of fresh pitted fruits, some caramel and toffee to support. The flavor is dominated by plums, caramel and a heap of obvious dates. The hops pull through all of this in a surprising way. The feel is a bit thinner than I would normally associate with these bold flavors profiles. Overall, it’s a unique beer that deserves its position in 21st Amendment’s seasonal lineup.

Clear, dark red-amber. Finger of off-white rocky foam with good retention. Some lacing. Nice aromas of brown sugar, dark fruits, caramel, pine resin, alcohol. Flavor is sweet dark fruits, dark sugars, caramel, toffee, pine and light citrus. Finishes with resinous pine hops. A bit of alcohol. Medium-to-full body. Good carbonation. Clean finish. Some warmth.

Light caramel color. Fairly heavy fruit flavor. Not overwhelming hops. Overall.. Worth a try.

12oz can. Pours clear brown with a ruby hue and two-finger off-white head. Aroma of dank floral hops. Taste is not nearly as complex as expected. Maybe a slight trace of date flavors with resinous hops and sweet malt. Thin on the palate. Reminds me of old extract homebrew. Not a winner.

tripelthreat (190) - Soquel, California, USA - JUN 1, 2012
Can. A reddish brown body topped by a short lived light beige head. A few blobs of lace were left. On the nose is sweet malt, dates, roast that all come together. Flavor is a fair amount of nuttiness, bready, and nice subdued pine. Needed a touch more sweetness to round out the flavor. Fairly dry finish with roasted nuts. Medium body with mild carbonation. Good stuff.

Delicious balance of malts and hops in a beautiful dark amber pour. Dates give it a unique delicious twist. Great beer!

We did not know what to expect since the packaging gave no clues. Not a bad brew with lots of biscuit and caramel on the nose and as advertised alcohol warmth on the flipside. Lots of piney hops out front followed by a slight toffee sweetness and hints of dark fruit. Very good body and nice color.
