Devils Canyon "Belle"
Devil's Canyon Brewing Company - Belmont, California USA
Bière Brut (ABV 6%)

[Suggested Glassware: Flute]

Rating: 3.1/5.0

Aroma: 6/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 13/20

The pour was a sparkling clear pale yellow with a small (less than 1 finger) white fizzy head that diminished in a matter of seconds, and had virtually no lacing at all.

The aroma was of a light grain malt, mild grassy hops and a musty horse blanket yeast with notes of citrus (lemon) and green apple.

The taste was a tad sweet and lightly grainy with a good fruity presence early on, becoming a bit yeasty and very lightly bitter with a hint of citrus and a funky fruity ending. The flavor lasted a very short time proceeding the swallow, with a funky fruity grain aftertaste lingering on for a short while longer.

Mouthfeel was extremely light in body and watery in texture with a strong fizzy champagne like carbonation.

Overall I found this to be a very interesting style of beer. It is a lot like a fizzy light ale, but not, with a nice fruity undertone. I am not a big fan of Champagne, so this is a perfect substitute to have on hand for those holiday toasts...
