While the rest of BC is releasing Pumpkin seasonal beers Dead Frog Brewing has concocted their own fall brew in the form af a Blood Orange Helles Bock called the Weeping Reaper. This Orange flavoured German-Style Golden Lager comes in at a strong 7% and a modest 26 IBU. from this artistically labeled bottle the Weeping Reaper pours as an amber colour with two thick and lacing fingers worth of head. The thick head gives off a fresh and citrus infused aroma with a hop bitterness that balances the citrus sweet and sour tones. The mouthfeel is relatively thick with the 7% alcohol rating being apparent without becoming boozy. In the flavour the Blood Orange is not over the top but adds a delicious and complex citrus kick. In a slightly grapefruit like flavour a sourness and sweetness from the orange blend with the hop content to make for a complex and well balanced lager. This is a unique beer and the name may turn off a few beer-drinkers but don’t be afraid of the Reaper – it is rather delicious!
