Life On Tap Episode #361: Bloom (Torch and Crown Brewing Company Bloom - Maibock)

As May wraps up and summer begins to ramp up with the heat, Dan revisits the Maibock, Bloom, from Torch and Crown.

Torch & Crown Brewing Company Bloom

STYLE: Maibock
ABV: 6.6%
AVAILABILITY: 16 oz. cans/Draft (Seasonal)

Stats above taken from the brewery’s can and website.


Dark gold/amber in color with a fluffy, white head.


Delicate blend of bread/dough and fruit on the nose almost verging on cherry waffle.


Flaky bread leads on the palate with the fruitiness taking a back seat with a slight earthy/herbal hop bitterness on the finish.


Moderate weight, body, and mouthfeel with the carbonation keeping the balance in check.


Bloom is a welcome seasonal beer, helping me mentally transition from the colder months into the warmer ones. This is super food-friendly for sure, and would pair with a great many dishes, but chicken or other lighter meats in various preparations would work best, I think.

Cheers and remember:

Life’s a tap…drink up ’til it’s dry.

All music on this show came to us from the now defunct Music Alley.
