5 Roses: A Rick Astley Joint (Malty ed.)
This beer has no intent to ever run around and desert you.
This edition of our Five Roses series is malty, rich, and complex. The core elements of a brettanomyces beer are readily apparent in the floral, funky, farmyardy nose and palate. The kettle addition of lactobacillus lends a noticeable, refreshing tangy sourness that plays well with the rich malty flavors. The sweet, grainy flavors are highlighted by caramel and chocolate notes. Aging on Red Cypress adds a final layer of unusual woody complexity to create a bottle aged beer worthy of Rick himself.
*Available in 22oz bottles.
