607. Blue Lobster Brewing Piscataquaweisse
There has been a fair amount of press about Blue Lobster over the past few months and not all of it has been positive. The firing of brewer David Sakolsky and subsequent actions. I am not going to go into any of that here and stay focused on the beer.
Piscataquaweisse was brewed when David was still at Blue Lobster and was one of only 3 beers that made it into bottles. This one is a 375 ml bottle purchased at the brewery. In addition to being an excellent beer this one also takes the honor of lowest ABV beer I have reviewed, not too many options out there uner 3% alcohol.
Appearance is a beautiful red/pink color with almost no head. Aroma is slightly tart and fruity. It has been a long time since I tried a plum so not entirely sure what they smell/taste like but this beer used both blueberries and plums. Taste followed with some nice juicy fruit up front and a light tart finish. I have not tried many Berliner Wiesses so I a far from an expert but this was an excellent beer that I had to keep reminding myself to drink slow and enjoy.
Pros: Very tasty
Alcohol Content: 2.9% ABV
IBU (Bitterness): ??
