"Our friends at Oskar Blues pioneered great beer in a can and, as mutual members of the canned craft club, this partnership was a perfect fit. CANfusion is a coming together—a fusion, if you will—of flavors from across the spectrum of brewing: spicy rye, tangy wheat and a bright citrusy hop aroma."
"Oskar Blues is the granddaddy of canned craft beer. Like us, they have a fun-loving passion for the outdoors and bikes. It was a natural fit for them to adopt cans as a portable, durable way to tote their favorite beer on the trail, and in the process they paved the way for all other craft brewers to follow."
"CANfusion is a dry-hop rye bock with a complex malt body that launches a peppery blast from the rye, balanced by a fruity hop aroma. As the style suggests, it was dry-hopped for an added aroma punch from the unique citrusy and spice-like Australian Ella hop varietal."
Upon first impression of this beer the color is dark amber, it has a good head at the initial pour but it dissipates quickly. There is carbonation noted and you can smell the citrus. There is a fruity taste with a sharp aftertaste that disappears quickly. The feel in the mouth is kind of dry actually but still thick as well and it sticks to the tongue as it goes down. This is a good drinking beer and you will enjoy the fruity and spicy combination as you drink it. It is another solid beer in this 12 pack. The only drawback is the price, however if you consider that a beer at your local Irish Pub is $5 per glass you will get over that pretty quickly. Oh and at 7.2 ABV it will remind you that you aren't drinking your average beer. Another solid beer from the Sierra Nevada Beer Camp 12 pack! Great work guys!
