Beer Reviews * Adelbert's Philosophizer *

As I near the end of my journey through the beers of
Adelbert’s Brewery, I now turn my attention to their Philosophizer. This Saison
or Farmhouse Ale comes in with an ABV of 7.8% and 36 IBU. I recently tried the
gin barrel version of this ale, so let’s see how the standard compares.

Gold Medal Saison from Best of Craft Beer Awards

2014 Silver Medal from Best Little Brewfest in Texas

Bronze Medal from 2016 Commonwealth Cup


THE ALE:

This smooth ale tastes citrusy with yeasty notes and a hint of peppery spice. Its dry
finish and mild carbonation make it perfect for pairing with grilled chicken,
rich fish dishes, and cheeses like camembert and brie.


THE STORY:

Philosophizer was a common term used to describe Del. He often came up with the perfect
solution to a complex problem while drinking a beer and watching the sunset.
Don’t be surprised when you enter into deep philosophical debates after opening
a Philosophizer. Just pop one open, pour, sip, and ponder.
