NEUSE RIVER BREWING CO. SIGNATURE SERIES
The origin of the Belgian Tripel traces its roots back to the Trappist Monastary of Westmalle. Affluent is blended with an intricate complexion of moderate fruit esters and delivers a robust ABV with minimized alcohol flavor. The addition of higher-than-typical amounts of candi sugar lends to a darker version of the classically golden hued ale. With essence of raisin and pear on the nose, and banana and burnt caramel flavors on the palate, Affluent quickly became one of our most sought after beverages. But please remember to consume responsibly. That devilishly sneaky ABV will getcha!
Bière de Neuse
The Saison (translated as “season”) is a drier pale ale known for high attenuation and a spicier yeast strain. Dating back to the 1800’s, the Saison originated in Wallonia, a French speaking region of southern Belgium. Traditionally brewed in the winter months, saisons would age until the summer when they were brought out for the farmhouse workers of the time who were allotted to imbibe up to five liters each workday as a way to combat dehydration when local water supplies were unfit for consumption. Slightly dry and with a hint of citrus, our saison’s complexion is subtle but distinctive and is one of our favorite session beers.
Smoked Brown Ale
Hailing from Great Britain, the brown ale has established itself as a favorite staple for beer aficionados everywhere. Brewed with a lighter hop profile and originally comprised of 100% brown malt, the brown ale started out as a sweeter but fuller bodied companion to the traditional milder ales of England. Incorporating this foundation but departing from the previous norm, our Bobbi Brune ambles off on an unorthodox but gentle stroll laced with nutmeg, cinnamon, ginger, and allspice. This eclectic collection of old time is flavor is further enhanced with the addition of smoked cherrywood malt, creating a unique yet well-balanced ale… possibly destined for some quality time in a bourbon barrel (hint, hint). As for now we’re pleased to offer an easy drinking brown with subtle notes of smoked and hints of caramel and vanilla suitable for any time of year.
