Works of Love is a new series of beer from Hill Farmstead. These beers were brewed at Hill with the help of a guest brewer. The first in the series is a blonde ale brewed with Earl Grey Tea that clocks in at 3.6% ABV. This is one of many great beers available with an ABV below 4%.
This beer is very light in color with a slight haze to it. Aroma was light and mostly citrus but also a bit of lemon grass. Flavor follows with a nice hoppy start and the tea really does not come through until the finish. Very mild bitterness and with the low ABV you could drink this all day long.
I have not had many beers made with tea but this is a very well done beer as the tea is just an added layer not something that takes over the beer. Looking forward to more from the Works of Love series.
Pros: Flavorful, low ABV
Alcohol Content: 3.7% ABV
IBU (Bitterness): ??
