(The Brewer's Art)

My first can of craft beer from Maryland and my first beer from The Brewer's Art in Baltimore. This is their only canned offering and it was produced and canned for them by the good folks at Sly Fox Brewing Company in Royersford, Pennsylvania. The Brewer's Art is a restaurant that serves great food and great beer/wine/spirits that also brews a number of their own beers. They only can this one but you'll find bottles of a number of their other brews in the Baltimore metro area.


From the Brewer's Art site:


"During the fermentation of the first batch of this Abbey-style ale, the yeast "died" and was "resurrected" by brewer Chris Cashell. Made with five types of barley malt and lots of 
sugar, this beer is quite flavorful, without being too sweet."

Here we go...


Pour - a very clean and clear dark amber appearance with a half inch or so of fluffy head on top. When held to the light this has a lot of bright red and mahogany hues to it. That head really likes to stick around too. 


Aroma - sweet, buttery toffee, some clove spiciness, stewed apples, unfiltered cider, pears and some hints at that unmistakeable Belgian yeast aroma. Lots for your nose to enjoy.


Taste - lots of fruity ester-y flavors up front along with some caramel apple notes and some slight spicy yeastiness. This has a dry finish, almost like an apple wine. This is not overly sweet and in my opinion it hits the marks for the style quite well. 


Overall - Big fruit flavors with good carbonation levels make this quite refreshing even at 7%. Sometimes this style can be a bit too sweet for my taste but this was quite enjoyable. Putting this in a can was a great move by the folks at The Brewer's Art. All of those subtle, and not so subtle, flavors are really well preserved and this is an overall very enjoyable brew.


Would I buy more of it? - totally. This is a great beer to sit back and sip and really enjoy. There is a ton of flavor to appreciate and at this strength its a nice beer to end the evening with. 


Note - Resurrection is one of only two canned Belgian-style dubbels currently available in the US. The other is Siamese Twin Ale by Uncommon Brewers in Santa Cruz, California.
