Melange #9 was created by your peers at a special blending competition held in November 2013 for our Hoarders Society members at the time. Each team was given access to a slew of our barrel aged beers and were allowed to bring in pretty much any ingredient of their own to add to the mix. The winning blend is a sour ale, using both our sour blonde ale and Sour in the Rye, with a hint of sweetness from White Oak Sap. Coconut and fresh ginger was added to the blend just a few days before packaging, generating a super fresh, tropical spice.

Special tasting with some of my Hoarder friends. Loved the tartness of the base beer. The ginger didn’t compete with the coconut which overpowered the flavors to me. Still a good beer and I hate to skewer it.

Golden pour with a white head. The aroma has some strong coconut and orange notes with a bit of tartness. The flavor is similar. I get some great tart coconut notes as well as some orange and lemon notes. There is also some biscuit malt thrown in to provide a bit of sweetness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Very nice beer.

Poured from a 750mL bottle. Aroma has a bright, citrus acidity but not too overpowering. Light ginger notes with lots of coconut. Hints of oak and vanilla with a touch of malt character. Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange with hints of copper and a moderately sized, very thin, white head that quickly disappears. No lacing or legs. Flavor has a medium light acidity with moderate tropical fruit and medium light citrus. Moderate coconut character with light ginger notes. Light to medium light oak notes with a hint of alcohol in the finish. Lingering coconut, pineapple and citrus. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with medium low carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, a pretty interesting beer, somewhat what I would expect from the Bruery. Its not my favorite and doesn?t remind me a lot of beer, but it is refreshing and easy to drink.

Pours a slightly cloudy straw yellow color with white head. Some tartness on the nose, along with coconut, spice, and some tropical fruit notes; follows onto the palate. Finishes tart and dry.

750-mL bottle. The faint aroma is simultaneously lightly sweet and tart with traces of candied ginger, bubbly lemon-lime soda, fresh vanilla, coconut, and a whisper of sweet bourbon. It pours a delightful clear, orangish-grapefruit color with no head whatsoever. Super tart from the first sip; once the sourness fades, sweet ginger and shredded coconut come into play along with sharp lime, the faintest touch of vanillin and oak, and an abrupt fresh citrus finish. Semi-slick texture with a light body (unusual for a sour). I dig this blend a lot.

Bottle:   Fizzy pour, dirty orange, light carbonation.   Cocoa butter nose, sweet, some tart aspects.   Slight ginger.   Tart up front, nearly sour, with a bunch of coconut and cocoa butter.   Lightly spiced ginger follows.   Warming, but not alcoholic.   Decent brew, wished it had more body.   Reminds me of summer, with all those cocoa butter suntan lotions.   Perhaps a smidgen of oak in there.   Thanks Rob!
