LIC Beer Project announced the first release in a series of experimental beers. Modern Aberration is a Brett Pale Ale that demonstrates the new brewery’s interest in Belgian and American Wild Ales.
The new series will consist of extremely limited releases, with each beer being 100% Brettanomyces fermented. Modern Aberration will make its debut at LIC Beer Project this Saturday (Oct. 17), with more releases from the series in the future (draft release details here).
LIC Beer Project recently released Glassjaw Bully, a brown ale brewed with their house saison yeast, as well as Trigger Rye, a rye saison. The Long Island City brewery is just five months old, and has already proven their mastery of brewing with wild yeast. A rotating portfolio of impressive funky beers is available in their tasting room and local bars. If you can make it out to the tasting room on Saturday, do so. Modern Aberration sounds like a winner.
This beautiful, golden pale ale with a billowing white head, explosive hop, and yeast profile represents the first in a line of experimental, 100% Brettanomyces beers. It displays how we strive to define ourselves through our passion for Belgian-inspired and American wild ales, while accepting that all aspects of brewing are readily explainable. This ale is for you to define….
The nose is almost predominantly tropical fruit juice. Tropical pineapple, orange rind, and mango dominates with a subtle resinous hop character that leads to a sweet malt backbone. Fermented with our own unique house blend of Brettanomyces during primary fermentation, the yeast profile makes it difficult to tell where the hops and Brett begin or end. The slight doughy wheat malt softly balances the bitterness and heightens the bare hint of tartness. The beer finishes long and dry with explosive hop and yeast flavor and an aroma that brings you right back to another sip.
