Parallel 49 / Tool Shed Brewing Company The Dangerous Wolfman – Fruit / Vegetable Beer at 6.5% ABV

Parallel 49 / Tool Shed Brewing Company The Dangerous Wolfman Fruit / Vegetable Beer at 6.5% ABV (C$3.50 at Sobeys Liquor Okotoks, 473 ml, packaged on 10-Jul-2018, acquired 3-Sep-2018, reviewed 6-Sep-2018)

Appearance: slightly hazy medium amber with a short ivory head diminishing gradually to a thin skim and ring, spotty lacing. (3/5) Aroma: grainy and bready caramel, orchard fruit, floral, earth. (6/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, moderate-low bitter, light tart. (6/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, sweetish slightly sticky finish. (3/5)

Deeply disappointing. They call this a “Lemon Square Ale”, but any lemon is strictly incidental, coming through as a hint of tartness on the tongue but with very little presence on the nose. (Not to mention, what the serious fudge do lemon squares have to do with the Wolfman?) Muddled and unremarkable, and entirely forgettable. Part of the “Craft Cousins” 4-pack of Parallel 49 collaborations with Alberta breweries. (12/20)
