Fruit Beer Week

I’m a bit behind on Theme Week this month (August has been busy!) but I’ve been wanting to do a Fruit Beer Week for a while now (it makes for a good summertime topic), so I’ve decided to mix it up a bit this week: I have some new reviews to offer, and I’ll be re-running some older reviews of fruit beers—perhaps even ones you might not have seen.

Fruit beers are an interesting topic among beer geeks; in a way they’re kind of the bastard stepchildren of “real” beers (considering something like the BeerAdvocate Top 100 only has three fruit beers represented) but when one is done right, it can be really right.

Hopefully we’ll stumble across a few of those this week.
