Dan opens up his last beer ever from Folksbier, Sif, a session ale/table beer featuring Nordic strain Kveik yeast.
STYLE: Table Beer/Session Ale
INGREDIENTS: Voss Kveik Yeast
AVAILABILITY: 12-Ounce Can (Limited)
Stats above taken from the brewery’s can.
Bright but hazy, straw to medium yellow in hue, with a cloud-like head.
Similar to saison aroma with citrus as the focus with ruby red and a splash of clementine.
Citrus hop character leads with a nice “wheatiness” following up, finishing with a delicate but pleasing minerality.
The malt provides a nice chewiness that along with the soft carbonation, accentuates the weight of the beer on the palate.
Light, sessionable, food-friendly. Pair with appetizers like Thai Chili wings, fried calamari with a sweet chili aioli, or others that pair well with American wheat beers.
Cheers once again and thanks to the fine folks at Folksbier for their contributions to craft beer in NYC and beyond.
Cheers and remember:
Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.
