Lemondrop Single Hop
6.5% ABV | 50 IBU
From simple to complex, beer describes a host of beverages that are light and dark, malty and hoppy, dry and sweet, and everything in between. Drawing inspiration from scotch production, Lemondrop SMASH begins with 100% Speyside distilling malt from Scotland. To this was added copious amounts of Lemondrop hops — a first here at Bosque — which imparts flavors and aromas of lemon balm and green tea.
4.8% ABV | 30 IBU
Two players. That’s it. London Lager Malt, a new, lightly-kilned malt from the UK, lays the groundwork, and a restrained addition of Citra hops diffuses catty and sticky hop aromatics to the sweet and bready malt character of this medium bodied lager.
4.5% ABV | 10 IBU
This Belgian inspired Witbier was brewed with orange peel and coriander. It’s slightly fruity and spicy with a hazy appearance. The lower ABV make this an all day kind of beer.
7% ABV | 30 IBU
We took a Saison base and then added a Sauvignon Blanc grape concentrate and Nelson Sauvin, Mandarina Bavaria and Hallertau Blanc hops. We fermented it with a farmhouse ale yeast at a high temperature. What we got was a complex beer with spicy and fruity notes from the yeast, floral and earthy tones from the hops and a vinous chracter from the Sauvignon blanc. It’s a lighter bodied beer that finishes a bit dry. A unique beer unlike anything Bosque has made before.
Rolled to Prost
5.1% ABV | 65 IBU
Ira’s brainchild, Rolled to Prost is a Session IPA blending American and German hop varieties atop a complex malt bill of kilned malts, torrified wheat, and rolled oats. It’s medium-light body allows serves to highlight the hop depth and bitterness.
