A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Herevana – Bootleg – Le Booty-Shack

The last of the 3 beers that appeared recently, the other two were lovely this one is the oddly named. Le Booty-Shack. but it is in a stye that I like, and have enjoyed in the past. I’ve got hopes. I’m having this with some bread and Pate. I made both of those things. They’re both really nice, even if I bow my own trumpet about these things.

Bootleg Brewery Ltd make the Bootleg Le Booty-Shack just outside of the ‘Tron 🇳🇿 Hamilton, New Zealand and it’s a Saison / Farmhouse / Grisette style beer with an ABV of  5.0% and with  20 IBU things.

This is a lovely looking beer, great orange golden colour with a faint banana like aroma.

Quite bitter and there seems to be.quite a heft of malt in this with confuses the style a little, or my idea of what I might be getting. I fancied rather a more gentle bitter/sourness, an earthiness and more a cider like affair.

It is really nice drinking though, familiar an unfamiliar at the same time, which is not a bad thing, as the same would be boring, and it’s always a revelation the shades of style that you can get.

I am a little confused, I don’t think I’d pick this as a beer in the Saison style in a line up of similar beers in the same or similar style, there’s probably more about this as a Saison than I’m letting on. It really is very refreshing and really enjoyable and with the foods I made it really does pop.

The Pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 8 on the arbitrary number scale because it is a really nice beer to drink, looks lovely and that really is all you could want.

Clean & crisp, bright & fresh. Like coming in thirsty from a day in the fields French style. Détendez-vous, buvez de la bièr

Herevana beers are those I drink at home, I’m not at some beer festival, like, for instance, Beervana, but am just in my kitchen, usually, dining room table, sometimes, or outside, occasionally, where I can take an average picture and write in real time about the beer that I’ve invested in, both in a monetary and emotional way.
