Year of New Beer: Aunt Hohmima, Ethereal Brewing (Lexington)

Written By: Dion on 02/28/2018

I think we all have certain sights, sounds, or smells that immediately transport us to some point in our past. I grew up eating frozen waffles with Aunt Jemima syrup. The first sniff of this beer was straight L'eggo waffles and sweet maple syrup. Warmth brings a light coffee note. Pretty much the same on the tongue, with the maple being tempered by just the right amount of bitterness from the roasted coffee bean. This is pure dessert (or breakfast) in a glass. I'm so glad Ben Hoh hates maple beers, otherwise we may not have gotten this delicious treat.
