COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“Yonder Cities" is a collaborative beer between DC Brau and Union Brewing of Baltimore. This Farmhouse IPA is quite the standout with its beautiful balance of malt, hops and yeast. Jeff and Kevin worked hard to craft a beer with a spicy yeast character and a bright vivid hop profile. Simcoe and and Citra hops bring white grapefruit, juicy nectarine and zesty lemon peel to the nose and palate while the proprietary saison yeast balances peppery earth tones with a crisp tart finish. There are two version of this beer. One brewed at Union and one brewed at DC Brau. The only difference being base malts. We used Pilsner Malt and Union used 2 row.

Travlr (10436) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Draft at the source. Cloudy pale yellow color, small white head. Nice aroma of citrus, pineapple, grapefruit. Taste is more like a saison, with slight barnyard fruit and straw, but then the bitter finish kicks in, and we’re back to IPA territory. A very nice journey.

Tap at Churchkey. Low haze bright, glowing mango pour. Thicker white head. Nose is quite herbal, minty, some animal, gamey melon, phenols give a diaper character. Taste is extremely powdery and dry. Palate is dry, powdery, chalky.

Thanks, Chris! Loads of Citra in the nose with some earth and floral character. Bit of white pepper. Good yeast character, but hop forward.

Flavor is very nice, lightly sweet, very spicy, white pepper, candy sugar, a little coriander, dried lemon peel, orange zest, hay, some nice zippy scallion. Assertively hopped without being offensive. Dry, refreshing finish.

lamas (1355) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Growler straight from the brewery. Pours an incandescent hazy straw color with a thick & fluffy off-white head. The incredibly appetizing aroma features lots of pineapple, grapefruit, Mandarin oranges, zesty citrus rinds, an herbaceousness, cumin, and pepper. Goes down medium-bodied. Light caramel and a touch of bubblegum upfront taste-wise. Biscuity qualities and touches of creamy vanilla in the middle. Juicy oranges, grapefruits, and a zesty citrus rind tanginess at the end. A big peppery finish. A fair amount of spice and alcohol warmth throughout. Delicious!

JoeinDahlem (1325) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - APR 1, 2013
A firmly bitter, lightly sweet hazy orange-gold ale with big tropical fruit hop aroma. A touch of alcohol warmth but very tasty.
