Dan opens a collaboration festbier as the fourth from the Untappd/Half Time Octoberfest box: Von Trapp/Narragansett Stowe Style Festbier.
STYLE: German Festbier
INGREDIENTS: All German malt and noble hops
COLLABORATION: Narragansett Brewing Crompany
AVAILABILITY: 16oz Cans, Draft (Limited)
Stats above taken from the brewery’s can, website, and Untappd.
Yellow/golden in color with thick, fluffy, white head.
Bread, with the earthy noble hop note coming through.
Fresh and clean, with the bread and earthy hop notes continuing from the aroma.
Great body and fairly dry, providing a smooth, great balance and serious drinkability.
I wanted to throw in one of the festbiers as a break from the märzens. Von Trapp never disappoints and I could definitely drink a good amount of these at home or outside in a tent. Another plate of brats, please. Prost!
Cheers and remember:
Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.
