The Bruery Filmishmish Smoking Wood

The Bruery Filmishmish & Smoking Wood Return

The Bruery’s Reserve & Hoarders Societies next beers up are the return of  Smoking Wood and one of my personal favorites Filmishmish.  Filmishmish took a year off last year after first appearing in 2012.  You were able to purchase 1 bottle of this last year during one of the Bruery’s special sales, but that is all that I can remember.  This is one delicious apricot sour that holds up well to the best of them.  Allocations are decently low so grab a bottle in a trade if you are not lucky enough to be able to purchase one.

Filmishmish, an Arabic term for “when the apricots bloom”, is a barrel aged sour blonde ale to which apricots have been added. The beer’s already fruity esters are enhanced by the hint of fresh apricot jam and wood shavings. Filmishmish is a well balanced beer, keeping the apricot and oak character present, but putting the flavor of the well formed sour ale at the forefront.

Brewed with beachwood and cherrywood smoked malt, Smoking Wood is a delicious demonstration of what wood has to offer when it comes to beer. This imperial smoked porter is brewed with a hefty amount of rye malt, contributing to a full body and light spiciness. Toasty oak, caramel and vanilla flavors balance the smokiness, contributing to an intense yet refined flavor profile.
