Designed as a flavorful session beer, Oarsman Ale uses a classic German brewing technique to impart a light, refreshing tartness. Oarsman Ale grew out of a desire to explore the tradition of session beers, trading intensity for finesse while still creating a worthwhile experience for the taster. The grain bill includes a healthy portion of wheat, while light hopping lend citrus & herbal notes to the aroma. Fermented with Bellís house ale yeast, Oarsman comes in at 4.0% alcohol by volume. Rather than being the dominant flavor note, the tartness in Oarsman takes on more of a palate-cleansing role, making it perfect with meals or purely on its own.

Have you ever lost a bet and had to drink pee? Iíll tell you what - instead of that why dont you drink some oarsman. What this was made for is when the crew team had a bad meet theyíd have to drink this as a penalty. Smells like pee, looks like pee, tastes like pee. Awful. Tastes as bad as Lysol or a tained homebrew. Honestly, the most horrid beet I have ever purchased.

2 year old bottle on the shelf at Discount...expectations are low. Pours a slightly hazy gold with a small white head that bubbles up. Lacto-driven nose...wheaty. Lightly tart on the palate, lemon yogurt and wheat. Sweet but has a lingering dry, tart note. Surprisingly pretty good.

Highly drinkable, very light lactic acid, spices connect everything well. Perfect for summer. But would definitely put it in witbier style.

josanguapo (1439) - SPAIN - JAN 21, 2017
From Labirratorium. In Teku glass. At lunch, after futsal match, with fried fires + eggs + swordfish. Its sourness is pretty soft, probably balanced due to the wheat. Not unpleasant but maybe a bit flat. A bit watery feeling
