New Belgium Twisted Spoke 15th Aniversary
At my friend’s house during a tasting party, I tried a glass of New Belgium Twisted Spoke 15th Anniversary. The beer pours a reddish color with yeast flakes and a bubbly wheat head. The aroma is sour with accents of brettanomyces and yeast. The taste is bubbly on the tongue with a sour cherry and apple flavor. Surprisingly, the beer has a smooth and sweet finish, but a bitey vinegar after taste. The alcohol content is 7.0% ABV. The Twisted Spoke had a good balance our sour fruits and bubbly mouth feel that tickled the tongue and a wonderfully smooth finish.
