The Sinner Series Wrath by Amager Bryghus is a 6.5% ABV Saison/Farmhouse Ale aged in Pinot Noir barrels.

Label:
Danish: Saisoner er in. Saisoner er hippe. Simpelthen. Endnu har ingen givet den helt gode forklaring på, at denne uhyre traditionelle belgiske ølstil pludselig nyder en voldsom opblomstring blandt toneangivede ølnørder. Bortset fra selvfølgelig, at det er en uhyre delikat drik i al sin forfinede enkelhed. Men vi har begået en synd. Vi kunne ikke lade være. Vi har nemlig hældt vores Amager-variant af en Saison på et træfad. Vi håber, at de bløde tanniner fra træet og de noble Pinot Noir-druer giver et saftspændt ekstra twist. Vi ved, at vi måske påkalder os Saison-fundamentalisterne vrede med denne gavtyvestreg. Men ærlig talt, så er vi ligeglade.
Vi er ikke stolte over at være syndere, men i det mindste er vi åbne omkring det…

English: Saisons are in. Saisons are hip. It’s as simple as that. So far, no one has come up with a good explanation as to why this very traditional Belgian farmhouse style has suddenly skyrocketed in popularity amongst the in- crowd of the beer geek nation. Except, of course, for the fact it’s simply a very delicate drink in all of its refined simplicity. But we’ve committed a sin. We couldn’t resist. We poured our Amager Saison variety into a barrel. We hope the soft tannins from the wood and the noble Pinot Noir grapes add a juicy extra twist. By doing so, we may bring the wrath of Saison fundamentalists upon ourselves. But frankly, we don’t give a damn!
We’re not proud to be sinners, but at least we’re open about it…

The second Amager beer I had my eyes on that may have implemented Anime, or not, but still looked awesome and one I wanted to pick up was Wrath. The funny part is that Sweden made a bigger deal about Lust than they did with Wrath even though Wrath has the boob showing with no nipple. Crazy Swedes and their morals. It really does not matter as I am sure you mainly came to read the review or mainly just stare at Wrath and her physique. Either way, hope this beer makes its mark to appeal your beer taste or anime. Whichever you prefer, we do both here and brewerianimelogs .

Overall:
This beer kind of reminds me of The Bruery White Oak except without the bourbon complexity. An interesting Saison and just to add the Pinot Noir Barrels makes it very interesting for sure. The flavors of the barrel are very prominent in this one. I would recommend this one if you can find it but if if you have tried White Oak from the Bruery, it is similar in flavor except for the tart aspect of it.

Anime Corner:
Original Artwork by paparins and the other Original Artwork by unknown (Artist info needed) was used in this pairing to pair with the label artwork as well as the beer. While this is definitely not your typical saison, the Wrath aspect of the beer may not be prominent immediate upon trying the beer, it comes surely after and is what best represents it well. The artwork of a demon on a rampage best represents wrath but the sweetness of this beer is what is represented in the second pairing which shows that sometimes, a rampaging demon has to take a brake from time to time. Just like lust, do not take her so suddenly, she will make quick work out of the unsuspecting victim.
