“Yonder Cities" is a collaborative beer between DC Brau and Union Brewing of Baltimore. This Farmhouse IPA is quite the standout with its beautiful balance of malt, hops and yeast. Jeff and Kevin worked hard to craft a beer with a spicy yeast character and a bright vivid hop profile. Simcoe and and Citra hops bring white grapefruit, juicy nectarine and zesty lemon peel to the nose and palate while the proprietary saison yeast balances peppery earth tones with a crisp tart finish. There are two version of this beer. One brewed at Union and one brewed at DC Brau. The only difference being base malts. We used Pilsner Malt and Union used 2 row.

Definitely get the malts and hops in this with some hints of lemon. Should have gotten a few more cans of this.

Served on draft at Beer Run. Pours a hazy yellow color with a large creamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of herbal hops, pale malts and a faint bit of citrus. The taste is herbal hops, pale malts, spice, faint butter, fainter fruits. Very dry, medium bodied.

Tap. Finger of foamy white head on a hazy lemon yellow. Spices, thyme, and lavender in the aroma. Flavor is savory bit vegetal, peppers, and basil comes in. Lighter body with decent carbonation.

JoeinDahlem (1597) - Berlin, GERMANY - APR 1, 2013
A firmly bitter, lightly sweet hazy orange-gold ale with big tropical fruit hop aroma. A touch of alcohol warmth but very tasty.

GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Tap at Churchkey. Low haze bright, glowing mango pour. Thicker white head. Nose is quite herbal, minty, some animal, gamey melon, phenols give a diaper character. Taste is extremely powdery and dry. Palate is dry, powdery, chalky.

nimbleprop (8761) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 23, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy, straw gold with some fluffy white head. Nice spicy, earthy nose, dried orange peel, lemon peel, orange soda, white peppercorns, straw, yeast. Flavor is very nice, lightly sweet, very spicy, white pepper, candy sugar, a little coriander, dried lemon peel, orange zest, hay, some nice zippy scallion. Assertively hopped without being offensive. Dry, refreshing finish.

Thanks, Chris! Loads of Citra in the nose with some earth and floral character. Bit of white pepper. Good yeast character, but hop forward.

tcane7 (1674) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Draft at the brewery. Pours a hazy yellow with some white head and lacing. Lots of pineapple, grapefruit, lemon rind, tangerine, some pine and belgian yeast spice. Really tasty

lamas (1655) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Growler straight from the brewery. Pours an incandescent hazy straw color with a thick & fluffy off-white head. The incredibly appetizing aroma features lots of pineapple, grapefruit, Mandarin oranges, zesty citrus rinds, an herbaceousness, cumin, and pepper. Goes down medium-bodied. Light caramel and a touch of bubblegum upfront taste-wise. Biscuity qualities and touches of creamy vanilla in the middle. Juicy oranges, grapefruits, and a zesty citrus rind tanginess at the end. A big peppery finish. A fair amount of spice and alcohol warmth throughout. Delicious!
