Almanac Farmer’s Reserve Citrus Returns (New Recipe)

Almanac Farm to Barrel Citrus

Almanac Farmer’s Reserve Citrus has made a return to shelves. The sour ale’s recipe has been tweaked for its 2015 summer release.

The base beer is a sour blonde ale aged in wine barrels, nuanced by Buddha’s Hand citrons, plus yuzu and blood oranges from San Francisco’s Hamada Farms.

Hand-chopped and zested fruit was added to the beer, which has been allowed to barrel age since the winter citrus harvest, creating a refreshing sour ale that highlights the natural tartness of fresh citrus.

Almanac Farmer’s Reserve Citrus is available in 375 milliliter bottles.

Style: American Wild/Sour Ale (w/ Buddha’s Hand, Yuzu Fruit, Blood Orange. Wine Barrel Aged.)
Availability: 375ml Bottles
Return: July, 2015

Half Acre Tamayura Taps Today

Half Acre Beer tapped a “friendship brew” with Coedo Brewing today. Brewed with citrus hops, and yuzu juice.

The result, Tamayura, is an ardently refreshing, slightly tart, hair raiser. We laid down a frame of cracker dry malt, splashed 22 liters of 100% yuzu juice into the pool, dry hopped with Hallertau Blanc and Amarillo, and a few days before packaging, we grabbed all the citrus fruits we could manage – oranges, grapefruits, lemons, yuzu – and got to zesting, steeping the beer over the weekend before its migration into kegs.

On tap at Half Acre in Chicago as of December 10th, 2014.

New Belgium Lips of Faith Yuzu

New Belgium Lips of Faith Yuzu

Joining New Belgium Brewing’s Lips of Faith Series, Yuzu. The beer features Yuzu, a fruit that looks like an yellow orange originating in China. Flavor of the Yuzu is tart, with some resemblances to Mandarin orange. The base beer for this Faith offering is a tart berliner weisse, a slightly sour wheat beer.

Who zu Yuzu? It’s a friendly fruit with grapefruit-meets-orange flavor that got involved with the souring side of New Belgium in this bottle conditioned wheat beer. They got on well enough to make this imperial berliner weisse style ale a smooth, delightfully tart sipper with a dry finish. 

Style: Berliner Weisse (w/ Yuzu Fruit)
Availability: 22oz bombers, Draft
Arrival: TBA

Samuel Adams Japanese Inspired Dragon Orochi

Samuel Adams continues to innovate when it comes to the big bottle series. Case in point: Dragon Orochi. Orochi is brewed with Japanese ingredients, including juice from the Yuzu fruit.

This curious and cunning brew, named for the eight-headed dragon of Japanese lore, use two unusual ingredients from the same origin for its distinctive and bold flavor. Yuzu juice creates a bright citrusy character with notes of grapefruit & mandarin orange while Japanese Sugi wood balances the sweetness with a fresh earthiness. The result is a bright & ethereal yet with lots of earthy power.

Style:       (w/ Yuzu Juice & Sugi Wood)
Availability: 750 ml bottles
