COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Off-red in color with a fluffy, long-lasting head and full aromas of fruit, bubblegum and spice. The caramel backbone of the malty body provides the deception of fullness, however, the finish is dry. The delicate citrus and distinctive bitterness intertwine with the warmth of alcohol and deep rum tones, finishing with a hint of cocoa. Simon Girty becomes more intense at room temperature and may be cellared for up to five years. A very different beer for those brave enough to try. Simon Girty....the person: One of the most pivotal and controversial figures in American history, Simon Girty, primarily through savage guerilla warfare, fought for what he believed to be right. He was noted as a “turncoat” and most often referred to as the “White Savage”. His bravery, courage and reputation, made him a common household name throughout the colonial period. Girty’s Run, which is a tributary of the Allegheny River, was named after Simon. The stream travels directly through the heart of Millvale and was once his passage way to the north. In honor and as a sign of respect, we have developed this beer for the free spirited individuals like Simon. We hope this minor tribute is enough to show our respect...Enjoy!

Dark brown, tan cover Aroma is cocoa, but then it sort of clashes with an estery belgian yeast, sweet malt and orange peel. Taste is more citrus, chocolate, like those chocolate orange candies. More esters. I like the concept but the yeast seems to overpower the beer.

RBSG 2016, on tap @ the brewery. Muddy brown. Overripe fruit, acetic sourness (mild/moderate), earthy, dirty undertones, bready too. Muddled and confused.

a plum colored beer with a bit of cloudiness. vinegar aroma, faint but there, not much else throwing off from aroma. Tastes like cold brew, a lot of chocolate as the beer leaves the palette with some dark fruits. maybe even a bit of cinnamon. Very interesting. not sure I could drink a lot.
