Day #41 – Ranger Creek La Bestia Aimable

February 11, 2011

Still in San Antonio and I discovered a new brewery here that has only been open for a few months. Ranger Creek Brewing and Distilling began production last year and they currently only have 4 beers available. They do not distribute to north Texas, so I feel very lucky to have ran across this.

Ranger Creek La Bestia Aimable

I had this on tap at the Freetail Brewpub.

Pours a murky dark brown color with orange highlights near the edge. There is a light ring of beige head around the glass.

Aroma is slight bits of chocolate and Belgian yeast and fruit. I expected to pick up the fruity notes but the roasted malt and sweetness was a surprise to me. A good surprise.

Flavor is big Belgian fruit, banana, clove and toasted wood. Slight yeast flavor. Good finish with a large tingle on the tongue.

For this brewery only having been open for a mere few months, they are on the right track to becoming great! Now to find their remaining 3 beers….
