Space Monkey Raspberry Saison
First, let me start off by saying that I wanted my first review to be a positive one, but unfortunately it is just a resounding meh. Drinking a Space Monkey was not a light refreshing carbonated romp in the French country side on a hot summer day, but more of a sip of raspberry beer soda in a non-ac metro car, which is never fun.
Coffee. Coffee. Coffee. I’ve enjoyed the combo of beer and coffee. I think it’s nothing short of amazing when a stout or Porter has the smell and taste of coffee just from the roasting of the malts. But this beer doesn’t get it flavors from malts. It’s a sparkling ale. Clear. But does the beer live up to its name?
I’m a sucker for beer, themes, and themed beer. So to kick off this new blog I decided to go with the latest Ommegang Game of Thrones beer “Seven Kingdoms”. Fitting since this past weekend was the start of Season 6. Is Jon Snow still dead? is he now?? now??? How does this Hoppy Wheat Ale fair?
So many questions.
