The Brewer’s Art Resurrection Ale

Back in March of 2014, the family and I took a long weekend trip to Baltimore over the kid’s Spring break from school. We hit up the aquarium that we’ve always loved and took the kid to her first professional baseball game at Camden Yards. Needless to say we had a good time. It also goes without saying that I made a point of enjoying some local brews whenever possible.

One of those beers was The Brewer’s Art Resurrection Ale — a 7% ABV Belgian-style dubbel — at an Irish joint up the street from the hotel. I remember enjoying the first pint enough to have ordered another. Now, this tasty beer is available in cans and it’s just as tasty as when I first sipped it over a year ago.

Appearance

The beer pours a rich, reddish amber in color with a frothy cap of beige foam.

Aroma

Bready malt, distant fruits (fig, raisin), yeast, clove, a hint of banana and light caramel notes fill the nose smoothly.

Taste

The blend of five malts and the Belgian yeast lead the way for light raisin, a moderate sweetness and a touch of caramel. It’s a smooth drinking beer with just a hint of alcohol warmth in the lasting and softly drying finish.

Overall

I love the malt-forward nature of this beer. It’s rich and carries a solid mouthfeel with a complimentary, fruity yeast element that adds just the right touch. With a blend of five different malts, one would expect this to be a bit on the sweet side considering the style, but Resurrection Ale is anything but cloying. I thoroughly enjoyed the short time I had with my six pack. I guess it’s time to buy more.
