Brooklyn Companion

I was sitting in Al’s of Hampden when they tapped Brooklyn Companion, so I ordered a glass without hesitation. The beer pours an orange-tinted amber color with a very thin filmy white head. The aroma is fruity and yeasty and consists of banana, raisin, and fig. The taste has some tea leaves, banana, raisin, fig, grassy hops, and pepper. The alcohol content is 10.0% ABV, but it is masked very well. I enjoyed this example of a wheatwine and the first thing I noticed was how fruity it was, but I think the tea and pepper balanced out the sweetness nicely.
