Drinking Socially: Release The Yeast
We had a hard time finding beers that really make it easy to talk about Yeast. Our impulse was to look for classic Belgian beers as an entryway to speaking about the characteristics of different yeast strains. However, as the landscape of beer retail changes during COVID, we found ourselves unable to find a Chimay or Piraat. After some shopping around, we're excited to check off a beer on Jon's Mount Beermore — and bring in a classic from Flying Dog. Sit back and enjoy a pint as we talk about Yeast.
What We're Drinking:
Two inflammatory words…one wild drink. Nectar imprisoned in a bottle. An anything-but-delicate blend of sharp hoppiness and fruity aroma, this beer is a life-changing backyard knife-fight for your palate. Once you've had a Raging Bitch, everything else pales in comparison. Fermented with a volcano-like Belgian yeast strain called "El Diablo," Raging Bitch earned its polarizing name from the aggressively active nature of the yeast—unleashed, untamed, unbridled…and in heat. Enjoy its golden glow and white foaming head alongside bold flavors like spicy BBQ wings, blue cheese salads, or that bag of family-sized Cool Ranch Doritos you're going to destroy later while binge-watching Netflix.
Franziskaner Hefe-Weissbier Naturtrüb is a natural and elegant wheat beer protagonist from Bavaria with a lush white foam. The copper-golden wheat beer with yeast-over opalescence unfolds an aromatic fragrance with harmonious fruit in which bananas and citrus fruits greet.
Due to the higher carbonic acid content, it is particularly lively and sparkling. Franziskaner Hefe-Weissbier Naturtrüb unfolds its unmistakably particularly fresh, subtly spicy and fruity taste with a mild-sweet finish when you gulp it down.
