Year of New Beer: Tropisaurus Kveiks, Blue Stallion Brewing Co (Lexington)

Written By: Dion on 05/14/2019

The Blue Stallion Tap Takeover event during Lexington Craft Beer Week is always a good time. Experimental, and in some cases, completely off-the-wall beers, with enough variety to satisfy everyone. After trying a few sips of several on the board, I settled on this sour with lychee fruit. The nose wasn't overly pungent,featuring hints of tart grape and pear alongside a light yeast and floral tea. Sort of a Sweetart effect on the tongue, with hints of lemon and unripened pear against a subtle undercurrent of sweetness. The tea is faint, giving off a slightly leafy, floral note. I can't honestly put my finger on what it is that I really like about this one, but it's good. Tart without being too acidic, and just complex enough. Nice work.
