Year of New Beer: Peanut Butter Shake, Westbrook Brewing Co (SC)

Written By: Dion on 08/08/2019

Whereas last night's beer was weird and I couldn't really decide if I liked it, this one is weird and I have no doubt. There's no logical reason for this to taste as good as it does. Peanut butter and citrus fruit don't go together, but for me, in this, they do. Aroma is dominated by creamy peanut butter and a touch of shell. Background notes of orange, grapefruit, and a little pineapple. Goes sort of in reverse on the tongue as the fruits take center stage--juicy and slightly pithy. Lactose lends some sweetness ahead of a rich peanut butter finish. Weird, but good. Your mileage may vary.
