Cervejaria Hocus Pocus | Orange Cake

Cervejaria Hocus Pocus | Orange Cake

A Pastry Sour with orange, vanilla and lactose. Looks like a just baked orange cake, but cold (?!) =) (Source: Loosely translated from the brewery's social network.)

  • Beer: Orange Cake
  • Style: Sour Ale (28A. Brett Beer - 29A. Fruit Beer with orange fermented 100% with brettanomyces)
  • ABV: 4.5%
  • IBU: N/A
  • Brewery:
  • Look: yellow color, turbid, with a medium creamy white head formation that leaves marks on the glass;
  • Aroma: light fruity notes are present, reminding orange, along with vanilla-like notes. Very light lactose-like notes.
  • Taste: at first, the beer showcases its fruity notes, reminding orange and tangerine. But, not long after that, the vanilla-like notes become noticeable too.
  • Mouthfeel: Light body, medium-high carbonation and a dry but short finish;
  • Overall: Good beer. It follows its purpose (to seem similar to an orange cake), but its fruitiness have a kinda artificial feel for me. Nevertheless, interesting experience.
This beer review was made by somebody which is studying every day to be a better beer drinker but, despite that, isn't a specialist or a beer sommelier. In advance, pardon for any gaffe. If you have any corrections or suggestions, please mail me.
