Brasserie Du Bocq Blanche de Namur

Du Bocq Brewery | Purnode, Belgium

4.50% ABV


Recommended By Dave McGraw

As it pours from bottle to glass, the wheat beer settles a very cloudy dull yellow in which you won’t be able to see though until the glass has been drained. Pouring slowly does little to reduce the tenacity of this extremely thick headed brew. Watching this head degrade from a big, creamy monster into a graveyard of effervescence is one which brings about more joy than perhaps it should. Then again ... On the nose, the beer greets one with a well balanced aroma of musty yeast, a touch of orange and a suggestion of spice. It’s smooth at the forefront of the palate, but soon explodes with a carbonated depth charge of orange and an alluring blend of coriander and licorice. Finishing clean and refreshing, Blanche de Namur reminds me of a farmhouse ale in some ways and leaves imbibers with a lust for more.

Samuel Smith's Organic Apricot Ale | Recommended by Elissa Cahn for Alcoholmanac Magazine

 

Samuel Smith’s Organic Apricot Ale

The Old Brewery, Tadcaster, North Yorkshire, United Kingdom

5.10% ABV


Recommended By Elissa Cahn

Yorkshire’s oldest brewery, Samuel Smith’s, began in 1758. Located in Tadcaster, the brewery has used the same strain of yeast for over a hundred years, and water used to brew beer is drawn from the same original well. The brewery is so committed to ancient methods that local deliveries are still carried by horse. Samuel Smith’s Organic Apricot Ale has origins at two breweries in England—wheat and barley ferments into ale at Melbourn Bros’ (which still uses hand-operated equipment) and is transferred to Samuel Smith’s, where it is combined with another beer and apricot juice. Good news for those who avoid animal products: all Samuel Smith beers and ciders are vegan.

Honey-colored, sweet and slightly tart, the apricot ale tastes like an adult soda—almost a beermosa. The fruitiness makes this especially enjoyable sipped outside in warm weather. Minimally hopped, there is a welcome bitterness in the finish that helps cut the sugariness of the juice. For less intense sweetness, consider combining it with sparkling water. Alternatively, this makes a great beer cocktail with sparkling sake. Orange, mango or peach juices would also pair well. An 18.7 oz. bottle is $5-$7—a good size for sharing with a friend or making cocktails at a small gathering.

Lindemans Pêche Lambic

Lindemans Brewery | Vlezenbeek , Belgium

2.50% ABV


Recommended By Dave McGraw

Among the world’s rarest brews, lambics are the only beers fermented by 100% wild, airborne yeast. Exclusively produced in the Senne River Valley near Brussels, a region approximately 15 x 75 miles in area with farming traditions over 500 years old, the lambic brewing tradition takes years to complete. This particular region is special not just for its geographical composition of small hills covered with cherry trees, but also the multiple farms growing hops, barley and wheat. Benefitting from a mild climate and the multiple wild yeast strains, some of the most unique flavors of beer are created.

With over 200 years of brewing expertise, Lindemans of Belgium is still a family owned and operated brewery. This peach-flavored lambic fruit beer is exactly what you hope it is. Ideally served at 45ºF, this temperature allows the beer’s aroma of fresh peaches to fill the room. A pure golden color with a touch of carbonation create a perfect balance on your palate. It’s crisp, light and refreshing and tastes exactly like peaches. It even has a mouthfeel reminiscent of the fruit!

Pour into a fluted glass and enjoy with peach melba, sorbet, peach cobbler or Belgian waffles.

Lakefront My Turn Series: Johnson, featured by Jennifer Briscoe in Volume 7, Issue 3 of Alcoholmanac Magazine

 

 

Lakefront My Turn Series: Johnson

Lakefront Brewery | Milwaukee, Wisconsin

8.0% ABV


Recommended By Jennifer Briscoe

They Say: “Hop-heads are going to love this beer. Johnson brewed a Double IPA that’s moderately malty with a serious hoppy punch. It’s also got an intense hop aroma, and a nice amber-gold color. But let’s be honest, if you’re buying a Double IPA you’re after some bite. This one will double your pleasure.”


We Say: If you normally shy away from IPAs because of the flavor, this beer may change your mind. My Turn: Johnson from Lakefront pours from the bottle a clear, golden straw color with some Champagne-style carbonation and topped with a thick, creamy white head. The aroma is predominantly grassy hops and citrus. The flavor is bright and mildly grassy with a lower degree of bitterness more commonly found in the West Coast style IPA. It is slightly drier, but still juicy, as to not leave your mouth with a sticky sweet aftertaste. This beer is extremely smooth and easy-drinking; it’s easy to forget it is 8%, especially when enjoyed ice cold from the comfort of your patio.
