Vunderbar Pils. Here is what peeps at Smuttynose are saying about this lager:
"Vunderbar Pils marks a departure from the last few short batches we have brewed. It's not high in alcohol. It doesn't use any kind of wild yeast, nor is it barrel-aged. It's a beer in the classic, if not archetypal, sense of the word. Best of all, it's blindingly delicious and drinkable. The low bitterness and moderate body make the beer conducive to some serious elbow bending." I hear that is is supposed to be kind of warm on Sunday so why not come down and try a little elbow bending on some Vunderbar? There have been some changes made on our tap lines. The Osiris went away with many great comments about this herbal beer, I am sure we'll be brewing this one again come the summer as it is a clean, crisp, and refreshing ale. As it turns out Osiris was replaced with an equally light and refreshing Hefeweizen which has the typical clove/banana phenolics derived from the German yeast. It is tasting quite nice and does not need the lemon garnish due to its tart wheat character. The other change which is sad to see is the Flanders Kriek blend go away. We'll make it again next year..... it gives you "sour" lovers something to look forward to!! However, replacing the Flanders is one of our big beers the Imperial IPA. It has been aging on dry hops (Chinook,Cascade and CTZ) for the past 3 weeks and has some big attitude. Big malt backbone and some multi-layered hops from bitterness to flavor to some sweet aromatics. It has all the presence an Imperial IPA should have as well as drinkability. Enjoy. Cheers! Todm
