COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
“The 2009 release of Nemesis is best described as a Maple Bourbon barrel aged wheat wine holding 12% abv and 70 ibu’s. The barrels have been resting deep in the mines of Grand Rapids for nearly 9 months and have been most effective in developing a great product. The Bourbon barrels we used in this creation were once used to age Maple syrup from northern Michigan, then emptied, and procured for our use in aging this beer. The combination of American oak, Kentucky Bourbon, Michigan Maple syrup and our golden/tan wheat ale has provided a delicious malty sweet ale distinctive of strong vanilla and bourbon notes.”

omhper (19791) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JAN 9, 2011
Bottled, thanks baggio! Jazy deep golden, no head. Evident maple aroma. Sweet and full bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Lots of honey and maple syrup. The bitterness clashes with the excessive sweetness. Interesting, but off balance.

Hazy orange amber beer, residual white head. Amazing orange sherbet - liquer nose. Crispy palate, semi dry. Rich orange liquer flavours, with traces of Port wine and red wine. Finishes minerally and aniseedy. A little cream in the aftertaste which has more orange liquer. A pretty amazing beer. Unique and tasty.
