Beer Review 86 // Pink Fuzz by Beyond the Pale Brewing Company
Name: Pink Fuzz
Style: American Wheat with Grapefruit Zest (A style I don't really enjoy normally).
Brewery: Beyond the Pale Brewing Company
Country: Canada, Ottawa, Ontario.
Commercial Fluff: Not your Bavarian grandfather's wheat beer. Rather than adorn the glass with a fresh slice of citrus we choose to brew the entire batch with a veritable orchard of grapefruit zest. This American style wheat beer uses a west coast american hop bill to emphasise the use of citrus in the brewing process. Move over mimosa, this town ain't big enough for the both of us.
Label: Beautiful label, tells you exactly what you need to know. This beer has grapefruit, so the label is dominated by it.
Pour: Nice golden yellow colour, with a beautiful white cap. The beer itself is hazy due to the unfiltered nature and the wheat body.
Aroma: A bit hit of citrus, mainly grapefruit which is no surprise.
Taste: This is nice and refreshing. The grapefruit, citrus hits the tongue and is so fresh. Whilst this beer also finishes with a strong bitterness. Pretty easy drinking.
Would I buy it again: Yes. But not to often. Though this is a tasty beer, it is not one I could drink constantly. It is pretty bold in flavour so one of these is normally enough. But it is a beer that is easy to find in Ottawa and well worth drinking when you have the chance.
