SweetWater-The-Price-is-Wrong

Dank Tank – The Price Is Wrong! – SweetWater Brewing Company

The latest in the SweetWater Dank Tank series, “The Price Is Wrong,” features likenesses of Bob Barker and his famous spinning wheel on the label.  The bottle alone takes me back to watching Happy Gilmore with the Adam Sandler/Bob Barker fight scene.  The Price Is Wrong, comes in at a fairly strong 9% ABV.  I’m writing this review while I’m finishing up a 22oz bomber, and I’ve said it many times lately, but this is another strong beer that goes down really smoothly.  Here’s the details…

On the label:

Workin’ as a caddy at Bushwood, El Danko was stoked to find out he would be shouldering Boob Barker’s bag. Figuring Boob was a swell guy who liked to have fun, El Danko slipped an exploding golf ball onto the first tee. Boob was so enraged after the ball blew, he threw a haymaker at El Danko and broke his high heel. Fearing a big lawsuit and being hammered in the tabloids, Boob offered him a rigged spot on the Price is Wrong to keep him quiet. Sure enough, down in Studio City 42 days later, Rod Roddy bellowed out to El Danko “C’mon down!” He was ecstatic as they wheeled out some fancy leather chaps and some extra crisping hair mousse, which he just purchased last week. Bidding $420 on the lot, El Danko nailed it! With a kiss from Barker ’s Beauties as the bonus, he strutted on stage and with a wink he gave a slap on the ass to Boob Barker himself. On to the big prize, El Danko was confronted with the infamous Cliff Hanger climb! Just as the yodeler was about to cliff dive off the ledge, he came to a screeching halt. The Dankster had pulled it off, winning the prize behind Door #2: Pimpin’ high heels and some private time behind Curtain #3 with Ester-y, the Belgian Barker Beauty, who 9 months later delivered the biggest surprise of all! Blam!!! El Danko is a dad living in Belgium. Jobless, he got a gig at Ester-y’s family brewery to pay for his Price is Wrong love child, Bar nold Schwarzenkegger. The Boob Barker Belgian Behemoth Boogieboy. Benjoy!

Yeah, if you read that, and you’re something like me, you’re like… “what the eff did I just read?!?”  So, here’s some actual details…

A little more description from the press release:

The bronze Belgian behemoth is turning up with 79 IBUs and 9% ABV on the big wheel. With a malt bill including Maris Otter, Pilsner, 2-row and wheat, the beer pours a bright golden color. It’s balanced out with herbal and pine notes from Nugget, Centennial and Simcoe hops, and then dry-hopped with Simcoe and Amarillo to give it a citrus nose.

“The Price is Wrong is a classic style Belgian with a SweetWater twist. We’ve enhanced it with some of our favorite hops to bridge two styles together for a big refreshing beer,” said SweetWater’s head brewer Nick Nock. “It’s made with Belgian yeast which is really exciting for us as brewers because it’s complex, reacting with fermentation temperatures giving off a different flavor and aroma with each degree. Be careful though, this drinkable beer is packing a punch!”

First off, let me apologize for the glassware used, but I was on vacation on the beach, and sadly, I had no Trappist glasses, or tulip glasses around.  This one pours a bright golden/orange/amber color with a thick, two finger, off white head.  The lacing is very thick with great retention.

I get a ton of aroma out of this beer, first I get earthy hops, oranges, grapefruit, and bubblegum, from the ale yeast strains.

On to the taste, I definitely get some earthy, and some citrusy hops, which gives a nice amount of bitterness.  However, the flavor in this beer is great, I get sweet tastes of grapefruit and toasted malt, which works perfectly with the amount of bitterness for a great balance.

This one is really smooth, I was really multitasking when I wrote this review, so the beer had actually gotten almost warm when I arrived at the last sips of the 22 oz. bomber, but even to the last lukewarm sip, it was still tasty and went down smoothly.  I think this beer wins the “high ABV% and goes down like tasty water award.”

Two thumbs up SweetWater, two thumbs up.
