Getting My Beer On With America Solera The Ground Is Shaking

The Ground Is Shaking from American Solera located in Tulsa, Oklahoma, is a Rare Beer Exclusive that is a Flemish-Inspired Sour Brown Ale that is aged in Vin Santo Wine Casks. This 6% ABV ale is said to be best served from 50 to 57 degrees in a recommended Tulip, Goblet or Pinot glass according to the brewer. I went with a Tulip and found this one to be a very nice smooth ale that did a good job of bringing in the wine qualities from the aging in the casks, and provide a nice sour feel overall. There was the tart presence with a nice cherry feel, along with a little acidity. What I really liked about the tart was that you got it without it being overpowering as it struck a nice balance with everything else on the beer. A fine beer and treat indeed, and definitely recommend for anyone that digs a sour style and enjoys wine once and then. Check out my video to see and hear more on this one, and if you have had it then drop a comment about what you thought.

Thanks to my partners and friends, Brant and Emily for also making it possible for me to enjoy this beer.

Getting My Beer On With Alltech KY Bourbon Barrel Stout

Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Stout from Alltech Lexington Brewing & Distilling Co. based in Lexington, Kentucky, is an 8% ABV ale and a multi-medal winner from the brewery. I have to admit that the beer was smooth, and there was a nice touch of the coffee and vanilla notes. Some oakiness did also come through in the beer injecting some of the notes from the barrel aging. It did play a little thin, but outside of that, it proved to be solid for sure. Check out the video to see and hear more on this one, and if you have had it before then drop a comment on your thoughts about it as well.

Getting My Beer On With Unibroue A Tout Le Monde

A Tout Le Monde from Unibroue, a Saison Ale brewed at the request of Dave Mustaine the lead singer of Megadeth was initially brewed in 2016 and I guess now can be seen as a dedication beer to the band. This beer comes in at 4.5% ABV making it fit right as a session-level ale, and is the lowest ABV of any of the Unibroue beers. In addition, at 22 IBU, bitterness is not much of a concern with this light-bodied ale. I found this one to have an earthy feel that carried the characteristics of many Belgian-style ales. There were some clove and ginger notes in the aroma and taste that stuck out for me, and a nice sweetness overall of the beer. Carbonation was active and provided a slight effervescent appeal. This beer was decent enough that I could check it out from time to time. Check out the video to see and hear more of my thoughts on this one, and if you had it then let me know what you thought by dropping a comment.
