As usual, plenty of options this week. Among other stops, I had 4 new beers at Trillium. All were amazing as expected, but none quite as good as Une Année Le Seul XIII (Guava).
Description: Two consecutive sours taking beer of the week. Smelling this one, you'd think it was a fruit beer. So. Much. Guava. Going down, it's quite sour, but as you put the glass down, a little sweetness and all that guava come rushing to meet your taste buds. Perfect balance of sour and sweet.
What you should know: This wasn't cheap, but it was worth it. I paid $32 for this 750mL bottle in the bar (basically 2 beer normal beers worth). I would absolutely do it again. This was the first time I had seen this brewery in Boston (at Alcove), though I've seen their Hubbard's Cave brand before (Tip Tap Room). I'll be asking if they have any of these stashed away next time I'm at Tip Tap. I'm hoping they become regularly available in the area.
Recommendations: If you happen to find one of these wine-bottle sized beers from Une Année, ignore the price, grab a friend or 2, and prepare to be blown away.
