  • Received as a gift from Sheri and Mike. Thank you!

    Day 7 of 24 beers of Christmas 2021.

    Pours clear with a touch of haze. Off white, half-finger of foam covers. Average lacing with thick ringed lacing.

    Aroma of sweet fruitiness. Hints of tea around the edges.

    Tastes is sweet and fruity up front before being assaulted by the tea. That is a harsh takeover. A bitter, somewhat fruity, and tea lingering finish that doesn't leave a welcome mat in my mouth.

    Medium body with a big carbonation. Bone dry.

    I gave away my last bottle of 2020 Bourbon County with tea, that's how much I don't like the stuff. The tea is minor in the nose but plays a bigger part of the taste. The first sip leaves a rough swallow and finish. Making this a hard pill to swallow overall. I would not have this beer again. Enjoy!

Beer Notes
  • Jungle Boogie isn’t your typical wheat beer–which is why it consistently ranks among the top wheat beers in the country. Instead of a light and bready cracker profile, Jungle Boogie uses a grain bill of mixed wheat to provide a body of light caramel and amber sweetness. That sweetness provides the platform for the fruity Rooibos tea to build a tower full of ripe stone fruit. Finishing the fermentation with a minimal dry hop of Mosaic further buttresses the fruity characteristics of the tea, while providing a lightning rod to unite the whole with a vibrant current of bright flavor. Light and colorful, Jungle Boogie is the perfect beer to pair with almost any dish and a welcome libation to both longtime fans of craft beer as well as those averse to overly malty or hoppy brews.
