The Bruery Praecocia

This is another example of why maxing our allocations from a brewery that is over 2,000 miles away from you is a bad idea. Fortunately, I only ordered a single bottle this time around. This was a disappointing beer and luckily split 3 ways with some friends who each agreed on it being subpar. We had Oude Tart w/ Cherries on the same evening and it was mind blowing. I was happy to find out it was still available for sale on Bruery’s site and I promptly ordered 3 more bottles.

Reserve society pickup split with my buddy Chris. Not to spoil things but thank God I only bought oneA – Very very cloudy, sort of a toilet water red / brown. 3 finger fluffy head.

S – Very tart with Apricot juiciness. Minor level of booziness but nothing crazy.

T – Taste is interesting. It reminds me a lot like Sweet Tart candies. sweetness, tart, with oak and vanilla and some coconut. very fruity but overall a flat boring end.

M – Slightly creamy but overall a standard mouthfeel. Not mind blowing

O – This was pretty good. It needed more old ale sweet / booziness or more apricot fruit. Not too impressive but not a huge financial commitment luckily.
