Ron And The Beast Ryan collaboration by Evil Twin Brewing and Jolly Pumpkin is a 7% ABV Saison/ Farmhouse Ale brewed with honey 

n Denmark we have a lovely tradition for funky beer, and what you have here is certainly no exception. This is a never before seen collaboration between Ron and the Beast Ryan. A fluffy and precious Saison-style ale brewed with a beautiful yeast called Brettanomyces. It may sound like a true fairytale, but don’t be fooled by it’s cute appearance.

Quite floral saison here. Aromas of honey, botanicals, bread, flowers, orange citrus, herbs, barnyard hay and spices. The flavors are kind of funky like a Belgian Ale, but it is a saison. Flavors of honey, biscuit bread, wine grapes, a touch of lemon, grapefruit, apples, peaches, wild yeast bread, wheat, coriander, herbs, rose petals and hibiscus. The after taste is floral sweet with some hoppy bitterness but not a lot. This Saison is worth trying although other saisons that may come close are like the Stillwater Stateside or the Anchorage Love Buzz. Still an awesome beer to try 🙂


Bavarian Style Hefeweizen by Black Market Brewing

Bavarian Style Hefeweizen by Black Market Brewing is a 5%ABV German Hefeveizen


Our award winning example of an authentic, traditional Bavarian (southern German) style Wheat Ale offers a fruity aroma with a touch of spiciness ad a creamy, but dry palate. Unfiltered for richer flavor and a characteristic haze. Enjoy it as a summer refresher, or anytime you’re feeling a little parched. Keeps bet when refrigerated.

Bavarian Heffs are some of the best German beers in the world to me so to try one like this is an awesome thing. Fragrances include orange, tangerine, bread, some banana cloves but very little of it. The flavors include of the nice citrus like a lime, orange and tangerine, banana cloves, sweet bread, wheat, some coriander spice, and a little bit grainy cereal aftertaste. It is a pretty good beer but then again, Fransiskaner Heffeweisse is much easier to find. Still, not a bad pick up for an awesome hefeweizen though :).
