It's time to rethink what beer is. Serpent is a collaboration between Brooklyn Brewery and Thornbridge that has taken several years to pull together. At its heart, this is a Belgian-style golden ale, but the rather sizeable twist is that it has been aged in barrels on cider lees, the natural wild yeasts that ferment apples into traditional ciders. Hints of cider certainly come through on the nose, and in the mouth there's a tart, mildly funky, almost wine-like flavour. There's an astonishing depth of flavour, but remains very drinkable despite its 9.5% strength. This is a celebration of a beer.
