New Brew (belated) Friday

It’s the weekend again beer folks and that means time to celebrate with what else, a new craft beer!

This time out I am trying a new brew from a new-to-me brewery Flemish Kiss from The Commons Brewery a 6.5% pale ale with Brett. In case you haven’t met him Brett is the guy that makes a good beer better or a least a little funkier.


Flemish Kiss from The Commons


Flemish Kiss pours a very hazy burnt orange colour with tons of white head and lots of lacing on the glass. You get that barnyard funk nose right away belaying the Brett within priming me for some big flavours but this beer is quite a bit lighter all-around than I expected. There is a touch of sweetness as you drink and Brett comes back in on the finish. Light bodied like a good pale ale should be, quite crisp and drinkable. Flemish Kiss is a pale ale that dipped a toe in the Brett pool. Personally, I can handle the big Brett beers but they are most definitely not everyone’s cup of tea. Overall an interesting beer that makes me want to sample more from this brewery.

As an aesthetic aside I really love the bottling, labels and general concept of The Commons Brewery ‘Gather around beer’. They have a neat Old World feel and it is a perfect fit with the type of beers they are brewing up.
