Juicy beer
« on: October 16, 2017, 10:23:05 PM »
What is it, exactly, that gives beer that juicy taste?   The beer I just made is WAY juicier that I expected (or wanted). ???

Thanks,
DB

Hops?

What do you mean when you describe the beer as "juicy"?

I don't think there's one agreed definition. Sometimes people mean it tastes like citrus/tropical fruit. Other times they mean that plus the thicker mouthfeel of the hazy/NE IPA/pale ales. Other times I'm not sure they even know what they mean. So I ask to make sure we start from the same place.

It's the hops.

Other than that, I think "juicy" is largely just another word for "trendy".

Hard to describe except that it's not so much the taste as it is the mouth feel.  Imagine what juice feels like and that's what my beer sorta feels like.  The flavor isn't too citrusy, it just feels like juice in that when you taste it, your mouth waters in the same way it does when you take a drink of juice.

With the hazy IPAs that normally get the "juicy" description it's a combination of hop oils, water profile, grain-based proteins and a slightly higher FG that create the mouthfeel.

What kind of beer is this? Could you post the recipe?
