Magical Mystery Tour - Release Party at Blue Earl
Blue Earl Brewing Company announces a limited edition bottle release #MagicalMysteryTour Belgian Barrel-Aged Sour Red Ale on Friday, February 23rd at 12pm! Firstly, We brewed a Flanders-Style Sour Ale that was aged in a whiskey barrel for a year. Secondly, we brewed a Belgian-style Dark Strong Ale and blended just the right amount with the Flanders-Style Sour Ale to achieve the perfect marriage of flavor complexity. The beer's namesake "Magical Mystery Tour" was inspired by the film and music recorded by the legendary rock group The Beatles. Paul McCartney wanted to create a film based upon the group and their music. The film was to be unscripted: various "ordinary" people were to travel on a coach and have unspecified "magical" adventures. The resulting Magical Mystery Tour film was made and included six new Beatles songs. Hence the inspiration for Blue Earl to create this awe-inspiring brew that marries two awesome Belgian-style beers to render this magical libation! Aroma notes: Magical Mystery Tour starts with a complex nose of tart fruit, vanilla and spice like finish. There is also an underlying presence of yeast esters and wild yeast components that result in an extraordinary complex nose. Tasting Notes: During the fermentation in the barrel from the micro organisms, we gain acidity. Prominent dried fruit notes with a gentle acidic sourness, flavors of fig, plum, raisin, bourbon, oak and vanilla with a some underlying maltiness. Medium-bodied with a long lasting finish! Extreme deliciousness! ABV = 8.2% IBU = 21 22oz bottle Brewed and Bottled by Blue Earl Brewing Co. in Smyrna, DE. Price: $20 120 bottles available Limit: 3 bottles per household. Brew For Your Soul!
