A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Herevana – Rhyme and Reason – Don’t Wine It’s Beer

After a short holiday where all I did was have a good time I’m back home in the late summer sun having a good time, mostly with beer, cheese and the other things I enjoy

Rhyme & Reason Brewery make the Rhyme & Reason Don’t Wine It’s Beer in 🇳🇿 Wanaka, New Zealand, and this is in the style that is a Saison / Farmhouse / Grisette  beer of  4% – this is 1.6 standard drinks in NZ

A lovely golden pour of a lovely beer that looks bright. The aroma is quite ‘woody’ on the nose.

The taste, it thought, was kind of a beeswax thing, almost oily, and it finishes with a hint of dryness from that oaking.

Not totally convinced on the outcome of this, it’s neither refreshing in the sense that it brings some sparkle to the game, nor is it tasty, with that slightly off-key oily waxy kind of note going on.

It’s underwhelming.

Listening to this with some music by Joss Stone playing away in the background, have not listened to that for a long time.

The Pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 7 on the arbitrary number scale. I found it odd to taste and couldn’t pin it down, and it’s not bright enough on the palate to be exciting.

A Golden Sparkling Ale conditioned on French Oak. Clean, crisp, delicately balanced beer with subtle fruit and oak notes. Fine carbonation leads to a refreshing finish. The perfect beer to cheers in celebration

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.

Philip himself.
