Four Winds Brewing Co. – Phaedra Belgian Rye IPA Review

Four Winds Brewing is on a stampede with their lineup of IPAs. Next up in the Zephyrus Serues of beers is the Phaedra which is a Belgian style IPA with rye for an added kick of flaovur. This beer comes from the bottle a slightly clouded amber colour topped with two fingers of dense and lacing head. As the thick head slowly settles Belgian yeast tones, wheat, tropical fruit and a pepper spice come in on the nose in a delicious and complex aroma profile. The flavour is rather light on the tongue with a Belgian, tropical fruit flavour coming in first. As a hop bitterness grows so does the Rye spice that gives balance to the light sweetness from the fruit flavours. The Phaedra is a fantastic balance of Belgian tradition and BC brewing creativity. Wonderful flavours spanning borders and cultures and amount to a very delicious beer that everyone should have the privilege of trying!
