Tasting: Opus 7, Antes Ale

Posted: July 4, 2012 in Recipes, Tasting Notes

I cracked open a couple of the Antes Ales this week, about five days early, to see how the carb was and to give it a taste. Initial thoughts are a successful summer wheat! It’s light and refreshing with a lovely, slightly hazy golden hue. The hops are mellow, but present on the tongue, with a solid mouth feel. There is a slightly piney flavor, with just a touch of clove that comes through as it warms a bit. It gives an effervescent, clean finish. I’m sure these flavors will develop even more with some conditioning time, too, if I can keep myself out of it that long!

Coming in at 5.1%, this beer is great on the 100 days we’ve been having, and worked very well with the ribs I enjoyed for dinner! Crisp and refreshing!
