REVIEW: Steamworks Brewing Co.

This review of 3 Steamworks brews is part of the Beer Maven’s summer series called “Patio Crushables”.

REVIEW: Steamworks Brewing Co.

Steamworks Brewing Co.

 

Steamworks YVR ISA 4.4% abv

Galaxy, Orbit and Nelson Sauvin hops create a powerhouse of flavours. With a full mouthfeel on the original taste the choice malts balance out the flavour leading to a smooth no fuss finish.

Steamworks Farmhouse Wheat Ale 5% abv

This is a saison farmhouse style beer. Saisons (meaning seasons in French) were served to farmhands who in Belgium were allotted up to 5 litres each working day. Each beer would be distinctive to the farmer who brewed it. Steamworks aroma & taste is doughy with wheat and a hint of spice and pepper. A cloudy beer with a white thumb head when poured. Cheers to Canadian Farmers & farmhands. Without them none of this godliness would exist.

Steamworks Kettle Sour 5.5% abv

A dry hopped kettle sour, spouting a golden body with a slight cloudiness. The tartness is mild but distinctive and artfully blended with malt and dry hops. I have a growing fondness for Lambics and sours. This one isn’t as bitter as your ex girlfriend but like your Momma when you don’t call her.
