COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Draft at the source. Cloudy pale yellow color, small white head. Nice aroma of citrus, pineapple, grapefruit. Taste is more like a saison, with slight barnyard fruit and straw, but then the bitter finish kicks in, and were back to IPA territory. A very nice journey.

Draft at Jack Rose Dining Saloon for CBC 2017. Poured a hazy yellow-orange color with a fluffy white head. Aroma was toasted malts, roasted character, light citrus, some sweet grains. Grape, citrus, grain notes are pleasant. Really nice funky barnhouse notes that come through are pleasant, with a nice hop, lemon peel notes. Light tartness comes through. Finally after so many years Ive had this one.

MadRobin (2930) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - APR 25, 2017
On tap at Gillys Fine Wine and Craft Beer in Rockville, MD. This is the version that was brewed at Union Craft (rather than at DC Brau). Clear, golden yellow with a thin off-white head and good lacing. Aroma of lemony citrus, peppery spice, pineapple and tropical fruit. Taste of lemony citrus, pineapple, bitter herbal hops, tropical fruit and pale malt. Medium/full body and medium carbonation. I'm not particularly fond of the hop profile on this beer. It just doesn't blend right for me. That said, this is still a right decent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
