Wet Hopped Blonde Ale by Dageraad Brewing

Dude seriously, what the shit. MORE fresh hopped beers? I thought we were done here but apparently some breweries didn’t get the memo. I’m certainly not going to complain because, well… Beer.

CAR!

Just Canadian things.

Some people I’ve conversed with think that wet hopping is a trendy kind of fad beer, and that it shouldn’t garner that much attention. I have to disagree. Almost every single wet hopped beer I’ve tried has been good, or even great. Now, obviously I am but one man, with opinions and a unique palate, so take it with a grain of salt. I still maintain that wet hopped beers deserve the attention they receive, because of the generally unique results. I love the many different takes on the style (it’s applicable to almost every beer type) from the many different breweries. It’s a very good time to be a beer connoisseur. Variety is the something something.

GAAAME ON!

So if anybody from Dageraad is reading this, you need a better proofreader. I read every bit of every label (ADHD? Probably just a smidge, but who isn’t?) and I noticed it immediately because… The fuck is a bine, guys?

**The folks at Dageraad were kind enough to point out that a bine is in fact, a thing. That wasn’t a typo at all! Egg on my face! I’m not afraid to admit my errors though **

CMON MAN!

I forgive you. Don’t let it happen again. Also note that if I want to pour with reckless abandon, I will. You don’t run my life, beer label!

**I will do better research next time. I have an extensive vocabulary, and bine was not a part of it until this morning. Learn something new every day right? **

Anyway.

The pour is a totally opaque honey brown, with two fingers of pure white froth. The head lasted for pretty much the whole beer and it has great uniform lacing.

Smells sweet bread, spicy hop, stone fruits. A nice reserved, sweet and spicy aroma. It beckons to me.

The tastes are melons, sweet rolls, what tastes like Pilsen hop, all combined for a neat and unique taste. Really nice, my brother concurs. This is probably the tamest fresh hop brew I’ve tried.

The mouthfeel is crisp and rich, with a medium body and lots of carbonation. Really easy-drinking, a sessionable beer for certain.

4/5 HELLO DAAGERAAD! Awesome stuff here! I was lukewarm after their blonde, and the Burnabarian was decent, but this takes the crown in my books (I have no books, I read digital).
