The Beer Gatherer

Blogging about Israeli beer in general and Israeli craft beer in particular, following 1001 Beers You Must Try Before You Die and other beer musings.

Beer Label Galore – Wailing Wench

Just a quick note now. I’m composing a fairly detailed entry as a part of the British Beer Recap, but we kinda wanna get back to binge-watch Broadchurch Season 2, so for the time being – Middle Ages Wailing Wench, from Syracuse, New York. Had a big bottle, probably quite old by the time it reached me, shared it with friends last year. An old-school 8% abv. double IPA, that pours hazy copper with a yellowish head. Smells sweet, a little spicy, tastes sweet, with hints of bitterness. Smooth, full-body, long, sweet finish. What struck me was the label. A year later and I still cannot decide whether it’s more sexist or more tasteless or equally both.

Here, look:

Wailing Wench is beer #403 I Must Try Before I Die. We’ll get back to real-ale fun soon. Promise.
