Twisted X Siesta


Brewed by Twisted X Brewing Company
Dripping Springs, Texas USA
Style: Spice/Herb/Vegetable | Ratings: 5 | Alcohol: 5.5%
A summer seasonal based on Twisted X. "Bloody Butcher" red corn from Richardson farms provides a slight hint of color. Prickly pears from the fields of Texas provide the rest of the color and add a fruity cactus flavor. Siesta is more carbonated than our other beers and this adds to its summer time drinkability. It has 5.5% alcohol by volume. We vote to reinstate the Siesta tradition, sit back, take a snooze, relax and ride the Texas heat wave with a refreshing Siesta. About the name: A siesta is a short nap taken in the early afternoon, often after the midday meal. Such a period of sleep is a common tradition in some countries, particularly those where the weather is warm. Since the siesta is the traditional daytime sleep of Spain, and through Spanish influence, of many Latin American countries, the word siesta has been taken from Spanish, from the Latin hora sexta - "the sixth hour" (counting from dawn, therefore noon, hence "midday rest").
