Beer Review - Gypsy Tears Ruby Ale

Starting now, we at Canadian Craft Tours are going to take on the oh so challenging task of drinking beer on a regular basis. Wait. No. scratch that, we already do that, maybe a little too much. Ok, starting now, we at Canadian Craft Tours are going to start drinking beer on a regular basis and then write stuff and post stuff about that beer on our website immediately after drinking said beer.....this is going to be interesting....

 

My first beer review by Andrew Wishart aka. the Newbie

The Beer: Parallel 49's Gypsy Tears Ruby Ale

 

What a name. Gypsy Tears. They even have a gypsy on the bottle with a ruby red tear falling down her face. What presentation! That's something I love about Parallel 49they make each regular brew with a character to represent it. I think that's what first got me on the beer so many years ago. I'm easily sold and I definitely judge a book by its cover, every time. I chose Gypsy Tears for my first beer review because it was quite literally my first craft beer as a young adult. It just seemed fitting to make it my first craft beer review.

This magnificent brew has a strength of 6% alcohol per volume classifying it a 'strong beer'. And yeah, half way through, I'm feeling it and it feels great!

As soon as you start pouring it into your glass the hoppy aroma hits your nose and you can almost see the gypsy's dancing around their loot from the days plunder. The ruby red colour up to the light, the beautiful frothy white foam on the top, it's a dream within a myth within a riddle... I'm lost already.

As the first drop hits my tongue I'm taken back to the first time I partook in this ruby wonder. Back then I was probably too much of an amateur to really appreciate everything this beer has to offer. Today I feel like I could drink it over and over again and find something new to love about it. The flavour reminds you that your drinking something that was made to bring joy to everyone who partakes in this liquid treasure.

This gypsies tears will keep me yearning for more. I have no doubt, you'll be happy she cast her spell on you too.
