New Release Beer Reviews
Okanagan Spring Brewery
Big White
Minutely hazy old gold color. Tropical aromas and flavors of banana taffy, peppercorn spice muffin, and sourdough bruschetta with a round, crisp, finely carbonated, dryish body and an engaging, medium-long radish and peppery greens finish. A nicely balanced Belgian-style IPA.

Alltech’s Lexington Brewing Co.
Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale
Medium-brown color. Funky aromas and flavors of buttery caramel corn, toasted danish, and dried fruits with a slightly chewy, bright, effervescent, fruity medium-to-full body and a warming, amusing, medium-length peach custard danish, vanilla yogurt nuts, and orange cake finish. A nice caramely barrel aged beer for desserts or creamy and caramelized cheese.
