DuClaw Mysterium A Mystery To Explore

On a whim I decided to pick up Mysterium from DuClaw Brewing during a beer run, and I have to admit that I am glad that I did. For one the beer itself is a limited release offering so it’s a matter of getting it when once can. But away from that, the beer itself did provide some great aroma and flavors that were unexpected. While the appearance was decent enough even with a reduced head, everything else delivered pretty well on this beer that has an ABV of 5% and IBU level of a smooth 21. The beer just blended together very nicely and while I had no idea of what is cardamom, I didn’t care. By the end it was like cranberries and gingerbread, and provided an overall good experience. My Untappd rating on this one was a 3.5 and check out my YouTube video to see more.

Brewer Notes:

This mystical, medium-bodied, 5% ABV, light amber Belgian Spiced Ale features subtle malt and hop profiles that compliment its complex and spicy blend of flavors. Chamomile, grains of paradise, cardamom and phenols (fruit flavors) produced by a special strain of Belgian yeast combine to make this ale a mystery, and a bottle, you’ll never want to get to the bottom of.

STYLE: Belgian Spiced Ale

COLOR: Light Amber
