Purchased at: Coworker Tony gave me this.
What makes this beer different: Crisp citrus, coriander and spice flavors.
Will I be drinking this again: Yes this was really refreshing.
7/21/2010: Anyone notice I’ve been drinking a lot of Great Lakes beer lately? It’s purely coincidental, but I do like their beer a lot. I feel like most of their beer is very well crafted, with no “duds” in the lineup to speak of. On that note they also don’t have anything I would consider spectacular. Overall they are very consistent at making beer that is true to their respective style.
Holy Moses has a very strong yeast character in the nose, with a clean smack of citrus. The flavor is perfectly balanced between citrus, spice, and coriander. Each respective flavor keeps the other in check like a 3 part yin yang. Mouthfeel is a bit on the heavy side for the style, but there is just enough carbonation to make this extremely refreshing. Holy Moses White Ale is one of my go -to brews if I am looking for something from Great Lakes Brewing.
