BC Beer – Tree Serendipity No. 2

August 13, 2010

Cut my finger pretty badly at work today. I can’t think of a better way to help than to drink a couple of beers. First beer on the list is Tree’s Serendipity No. 2. I’d like to thank Michelle from Tree for hooking me up and sending me her one bottle. Really appreciate it. Only something, like, 300 bottles were made.

When poured out No. 2 looks very reminiscent of No. 1, however, Stefan Buhler (the Brewmaster at Tree) has said that all the beers in the Serendipity series are wholly unique. As soon as I opened the bottle I knew this to be true, despite appearances. A very powerful aroma was contained in that bottle. All kinds of smells are coming through; toffee, whiskey, coffee, treacle, peat, smoke, oak, tar, chocolate chip cookies and brown sugar. The flavours are more cohesive than the aroma suggests. On the finish you get a blast of dry, warm whiskey yet, the beer continues and finishes on the sweet side. Overall the finish and weird stickiness of the mouthfeel didn’t make this beer nowhere as enjoyable the first version.
