Moon Dog: Perverse Sexual Amalgam (AUS)

Image

 

Moon Dog, the Kings of “that’s insane, why would you do that?*Drinks* Oh God! It is genius and works on every level!” (it’s a long title…) are at it again. The boys just have this great reputation of doing it different and just nailing it. Ever since i heard about this new release of the infrequently brewed PSA, I couldn’t wait to get hold of it. Aged in oak for 5 months with cherry plums, it is gettin’ seriously kinky….

Style: Black Wild Ale with Cherry Plums

ABV: 6.1%

IBU: 14

Pours:

Black…….. Little off white head.

On the Nose:

The sourness from the brett jumps out with the cherry plums. Very wild and funky with some florals.

Palate:

Sour, tart and funky. The cherry plums are the real driving fruit force here with hints of muscat in there and a great puckering sourness in the background, carrying it all. Finishes off dry with bakers cocoa and dark chocolate.

Final Thoughts:

Just makes me want to clamp jumper cables to my nipples and dip my junk in hot wax…… When I drink Moon Dog this is exactly the thing i expect, something completely from left field and different. Cleverly made, really well balanced and utterly unique; this is a fun, funky brew with a lot to think about. Hits all the right spots and really lives up to its name.
