I’ve had quite a hit-and-miss experience with Cambridge so far, ranging from 2.2 stinkers up to 4.0 delight. This batch is unfortunately tainted with a nasty insecticide smell and aftertaste that pretty much kills any allure it might have, so it ends up near the bottom of the pile of the ones I’ve had to date. I might also say that the elderflowers are a bit undesirable too, reminding me too much of bubble bath and fancy hand soap...I wouldn’t say it’s unpleasant, but it doesn’t really make me want to drink it. Score is helped a bit by a nice appearance and mouthfeel, but otherwise it’s a drain pour.
My bottle says this is 5.5%. Been a long time since I’ve had a beer from CBC. It looks fantastic, a rich orange with a big crusty white head. The nose has that sweet and musky elderflower pollen all over it, a touch of orange and a tough of bread. In the mouth it’s quite light and smooth with a tingly carbonation that puffs out into a big cloudy mouthfeel. Really very tasty! ClarkVV (6893) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 27, 2016
Draught at the brewery, Spring 2016.
Gentle haziness to this soft, tangerine-apricot-golden beer with some muted brass tones and a large, white head showing moderate retention.
Awesomely full of nelson in the nose, the grain and light tartness from the buckwheat and and spicy rye works perfect with the minerality and juicy gooseberry-white wine of the hop providing a dry, yet crisply fruity nose that is augmented and softened by light esters and a touch of cellar notes. No alcohol or flaw.
Quite dry, with grainy cereal notes, hints of vanilla and even some plastery character from the yeast. The hoppiness grows strong through the middle (though not bitter) adding melon, white wine and lightly dank, spicy notes that help balance the dryness. Elderflower adds a touch of acidity, as well, but is not overdone. Tons of fruitiness, lightly juicy, lingering with bits of pepper, honey and rustic cereal grain. Moderate, tight carbonation.
