Year of New Beer: Braincake, Parish Brewing (LA)

Written By: Dion on 02/01/2020

Hints of grapefruit to start; quickly pushed aside by berry, melon, and a touch of coconut. Gets a bit dank and oniony with warmth. Much the same on the tongue, but the herbal qualities really outweigh the fruit characteristics. Wheat becomes more noticeable, as does a slight cake-like sweetness and toasted coconut. Tons of oniony hop burn to finish. Good, but I was hoping the beer could live up to the label, which is fire.
