    Episode 67: Foreign Objects Beer Company’s Dream of Perfect Beauty New American Hoppy Ale
    It’s the Two Minute Beer Review!
    I’m Andrew Burkum and it’s that time again where we take on that massive craft brew aisle to find the hidden treasures waiting for us there.
    This week we’re taking a look at Dream of Perfect Beauty New American Hoppy Ale from Foreign Objects Beer Company in New Paltz, NY. Is this one a dream come true? Let’s find out!
    The scent is strong with this one. According to the Foreign Objects website they focus on creating intensely aromatic New-American Hoppy Ales and this one proves that they’re not kidding. I had the beer sitting on the table in front of me and I could smell it clearly before I even lifted the glass. The scent is lemon/orange forward with just a tiny bit of fresh pine in the background. It’s intense and beautiful and exciting. In color it most resembles a hazy glass of orange juice. It’s also worth noting that Foreign Objects’ labels are easily some of the most beautiful in the business. This one resembles an abstract watercolor painting with striking purples, blues and reds.
    But what about the taste? It’s not as bitter as I anticipated based on the scent but it does have a very solid side-of-the-tongue bitterness that balances out its extremely juicy but never sweet flavor. It’s tremendously mild, but at the same time very satisfying. It doesn’t suffer from the lack of flavor because all of the flavors that are here are so well blended.
    Dream of Perfect Beauty doesn’t reinvent any wheels, but for that it is still an extremely tasty and drinkable beer. It’s definitely one that I would go back to if I were to find it on the shelf again. Its 6.8% alcohol by volume puts it in the category of strong but not too strong. If you can find it, I recommend you give it a try.
    That’s all for this week, but I hope you’ll join me next week as we take a look at Mo-Tra Blood Orange IPA by Santa Maria Brewing Company in Atascadero, CA. Is this the IPA we’ve always dreamed of? We’ll find out next week.
