COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We certainly love our Cream Ale. In the year we’ve been open, it’s become one of our most popular styles. But that doesn’t mean we can’t tinker with it, right? Introducing “Aces Wild”, our Double Cream Ale. Double the Malt… Double the ABV. Coming in right at 8.0%, Aces Wild is the big brother our standard Cream Ale always wished he had. The name? We dry-hopped Aces Wild with Sorachi Ace Hops. And the wild part comes in from the herbs: we also added Fresh Mint & Tarragon. The Mint & Tarragon do a wonderful job of enhancing the already present herbal qualities in the Sorachi Ace Hops. At the finish, you’ll find a more pronounced bitterness than our standard Cream Ale, but that bitterness helps to carry the bigger body and ABV of the beer. So… who is all in on “Aces Wild”?

Draft at Pony Bar. Pours a fairly clean gold with average white head. Nose of coconut, lemon, mint, citrus, mild tarragon. Medium body. Tons of sorachi ace flavor comes through. Extremely hoppy for a cream ale. Interesting beer, but drinking a pint was a little too much.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with a thin white head. Soft herbal notes with touches of mint and a light citrus muskiness. Medium bodied, smooth and lightly sweet, more gentle herbal notes. Long gentle bitter finish with lingering musk and herbal tones. Very nice.

The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: Pours golden with white head. Aroma is lemony, malty, and a bit spicy. Taste is more bitter and hoppy than I expected, but the body is still nice and creamy. Alcohol is well covered. Some strange, but good, flavour around the middle. Easy to drink, with a certain degree of complexity. So far, from Newburgh, this is the best I got.

Lubiere (9999) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2013
A golden ale with a thin white head. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with light strawberries. In mouth, a sweet creamy peachy malt with tarragon notes, mineral notes, not bad.
