Saint AIX Vine De Provence Rose 2015aix rose

“Delicate perfume of ripe mandarin oranges, raspberries and wild strawberries. Slightly spicy in the taste. Again a tribute to red forest fruits, cherries, strawberries and fresh fig, with a hint of thyme. Ideal as an aperitif, but also as a lunch rose when combined with seafood, salads, grilled tuna or roasted chicken.” – Cees Van Casteren, Master of Wine

Just tapped: Three Brews from First Magnitude Brewing

URSA IPA – First Magnitude Brewing Company 7.30% ABV – No description at this time.first mag logo

Siren Blonde Ale – First Magnitude Brewing Company 4.9%
Just like the sirens of mythology, the Siren blonde ale is beautiful and dangerous; beautiful in its light golden hue, and dangerous in that it’s hard to enjoy just one. Siren is a refreshing, approachable, easy-drinking choice for an afternoon at the beach or a sunset paddle. Featuring more hop character and bitterness than a standard blonde ale, she compares favorably with a pilsner. Siren is brewed with an American two-row pale malt base with a generous amount of Vienna malt and a touch of Victory to add complexity and aid in head retention. Warrior hops are used for bittering, and the floral and spicy notes come from a combination of Hallertau Mittelfrüh and German Tettnang hops.

72 Pale Ale – First Magnitude Brewing Company 5.5% ABV
There aren’t many constants in life. Two that we can rely on at FM are that water from cool, clear first magnitude springs are a constant 72 degrees Fahrenheit year-round, and that hops never fail to make us smile. 72 pale ale is a beer for the hop lover. It has a prominent citrus and somewhat floral aroma paired with a bready malt note in the background. The beer has an enticing, light copper color and is balanced, but leans decidedly towards the hops in its flavor and aroma. It is medium-bodied with a semi-dry finish that leaves a lingering herbal/spicy sense on the tongue.

72 features American two-row as a base malt with Munich malt to balance the hop flavor and Crystal malt to provide color and a bit of sweetness. Chinook hops provide the bittering while Cascade and Centennial hops are used for flavor and aroma. The aroma is enhanced by dry hopping.

Just tapped: Tuco Style Freakout (aka Agave Lime) Mead – B Nektar Meadery 6% ABV tuco
Mazer’s Notes:
Essential Elements – Orange blossom honey, agave nectar, lime juice and lime zest.
Appearance – Pale green and crystal clear with a fizzy head that disperses swiftly to the rim.
Experience – Tart lime engulfs the tongue followed by a creamy sweetness of honey and agave. Medium bodied with a lime pith bitterness on the semi-dry finish. A zip of acidity adds to the wonderful balance of the sweet, tart, and bitter flavors.
