Brew Review – Good Time For Pie by Unbranded and Beat Culture

I have quite a cellar of strong ales that I have been aging for a rainy day.

Every so often, it becomes a good time to break one of those open. And it was recently a good day for Good Time For Pie (Strong Ale, 9.1% ABV), a collaboration between Unbranded Brewing in Hialeah and Miami’s Beat Culture, from where this bottle was originally sourced.

There is something absolutely breathtaking about a properly aged strong ale. It’s a shame this beer hasn’t been made in a long time, because it would be fantastic to get a few more bottles.

Letting it sit was absolutely the right thing to do. As a strong ale, the color is a deep brown caramel with wonderfully strong molasses and fruity notes. This isn’t a strong ale so much as it is an apple pie strong ale, which gives you a lot to expect when it comes to the fruity aromas therein.

The apple flavors, those did not disappoint at all. I enjoy strong ales for the bold, malty sweetness they contain, with a good amount of booziness that does not back down. You get that with this beer, albeit that alcohol sting matured itself out with the aging.

There’s bold chewy malt notes, resplendent with a lot of prune, caramel, and molasses, combined with whatever alchemy they used to bring the apple into this beer. Hints of cinnamon and nutmeg spice round out the experience quite satisfactorily.

In all you get a perfect beer for the holidays, or just something simply flavorful and enjoyable enough to be a great beer for a special occasion. Besides, it’s always time for pie.
