Perennial Barrel Aged Abraxas
This is just so much better than regular Abraxas in every aspect. Not too much herb, much more cinnamon forward, thick mouthfeel, full body, crazy taste overall. Extremely complex beer. Rye whiskey barrel tastes fantastic!

Perennial Peach Berliner Weisse
The beer is a fairly light yellow tan color. It’s quite cloudy. Small white head, quite fizzy. Very nice peachy aroma. Mild lacto flavor. It’s mostly just bright sweet peach. Not terribly juicy but fresh and floral. Some wheat spice and bready malt sweetness. Taste is moderately tart. Unfortunately, the peach flavor is fairly muted unlike the aroma. Mild bitterness. Fairly dry. Just a bit boring. Not much yeast fruitiness. Fizzy mouthfeel, light on the palate.

Perennial 17
Tap at Harry’s Hofbrau. Pours near black with tan head that lingers nicely. Both the taste and aroma (especially taste) exhibit too much mint. The mint has a fake tasting aspect to it that is rather unpleasing. Slight alcohol warming present.

Perennial Jack Rose
750mL bottled Sep 2015, from Brown Derby Intn’l Wine Center, drunk 5/12/16.
Very hazy, soft-strawberry with a strong ruddy tint and a beige head atop that quickly fades to cover.
Big fruit jam notes in the nose have a strong strawberry-raspberry character with just a hint of lime on the end. There’s some sweet malt notes adding honey and caramel, as well as smattering of biscuit and light iced tea-like character from the crystal malt, assumedly. It’s very fruity in the nose and it would be nice to get a little more phenolic character or something like that to balance. There’s a touch of buttery character as well, which is out-of-place. Not sure if it’s diacetyl. No alcohol, at least.
It’s rich and sweet in the flavor, though importantly, not cloying (to me at least). Obviously a fruity, near-dessert beer and it certainly shows with jammy raspberry-strawberry notes again but thankfully some tartness coming through from both lime and cider. Definitely succeeds as far as emulating a cocktail, though I’m not sure why you’d want to drink this over the actual cocktail. Probably needs to be significantly more dry and with less of a soft, malty/sugary texture. Still, the actual flavors they’ve developed here are quite true and enjoyable.

Bottle purchased in Portland and consumed in Serbia. Dark brown/black color, dark brown foam lowering super fast. Nose: coffee brandy, alcohol, zabaione. Mouth: mild coffee start, soft body far from being rich, some frizzy/pepper palate, coffee brandy, sourish (unexpected) finish, ash, cherries. Mmmmm. Maybe a "strange" bottle? Label says bottled Jan 2016 consume within 60 days. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
