Beer Review: Three Floyds Yum Yum American Session Ale

yumyum

 

Have back to back Three Floyds reviews coming to you next. First is their American Session Ale, a style that basically every brewery has had their crack at now, Yum Yum. No surprise here that Three Floyds would jump on this bandwagon since they are basically already masters of this style; Session IPAs, American Session Ale, Hoppy Session Ale whatever you wanna call it they brew a lot of American Pale Ales. Was excited to try this one regardless and had very high hopes. Yum Yum comes in at 5.5% ABV and 55 IBUs.

Appearance: Bright hazy orange with a 1/2 finger head producing really nice lacing. Pretty dark for a session ale, has more of a Double IPA color, nonetheless its a color I like a lot. Love the bottle and six pack artwork for this one as well.

Nose: Passionfruit, peach, citrus, lemon, orange, tangerine, pineapple and mango. Wow, this one really packs a punch of delicious juicy fruit aroma. This features a new proprietary hop aroma and man does it smell sweet and delicious. I mean I really got all those different fruits in there and I am sure others could pick out some more.

Taste/Mouth: A lot of fruit from the nose carrying over to a nice thick full mouth. Very drinkable and gushing with flavor, has some malt to balance it but its nice and hoppy. So much tropical and citrus fruits, just like the nose, make this an incredibly delicious and extremely flavorful beer.

Price/Availability: This is a year round release but I am guessing its part of the Three Floyds revolving schedule. The price is a little high as usual with all 3F releases, because of the hype.

Overall: Three Floyds continues to prove they are the APA kings here with another great release of an APA listed as an ASA. No surprise as expected this is one of the best session beers I have had since the craze started. Would definitely recommend this one and will have it again when I see it.
