Mother Earth Brewing Tripel Overhead (365 Day 175)

Mother Earth Tripel Overhead

I was hoping that I would be reviewing American craft beer number 175 as a celebratory beer. Instead, it was to wash away my sorrows as the Miami Heat took at 3-to-1 lead in the best of seven series against my beloved Bulls. The Bulls just don’t have the offensive choices that the Heat do.

My wife and I were both coaches and when LeBron James had that charge (which was a charge, no doubt) with eight seconds left, I said if the Bulls put the ball in Rose’s hands one-on-one against James, Tom Thibodeau should have his coach of the year award stripped. Rose wasn’t going to score against LeBron in that situation, pick and roll, damnit!

When I went to the cellar looking for something last night, I couldn’t find one beer that was lighter than Tripel Overhead by Mother Earth Brewing. Tripel Overhead is a solid offering with an aroma and taste above average for the style. Maybe a bit too sticky would be my once negative on an otherwise quality beer. Enjoy!

Aroma: 9, Taste: 9, Look: 9, Drinkability: 7, Overall: 8.3

Beer Review: Mother Earth Weeping Willow Wit

Monday, August 30th, 2010

This past weekend was the perfect weather to review a few American craft beers. The weather was comfortable at the beginning of the weekend and ending hot and humid yesterday. Lighter beers seemed to be the best bet for the sake of refreshment.

When I reach for beers out of the refrigerator in the basement, I imagine myself taking a drink and depending on my mood, if it would suffice. So the refreshment theme was in full motion when I grabbed Weeping Willow Wit by Mother Earth Brewing a Belgian witbier. The beer had all the signs of being a solid witbier, including coriander, wheat, Belgian yeast, and lemon. All the aromas and flavors were well balanced greatly increasing the ability to appreciate the beer. A light body and sharp carbonation finish off a well rounded beer. I would definitely seek this beer out again. 8.6/10 – Aroma: 8 (25%), Taste: 9 (25%), Look: 8 (15%), and Drinkability: 9 (35%).

In hindsight, I realize this witbier is the best I have tasted to date. Now that makes me want more. Enjoy!
