Abu Nawas Drops this week: Fantome, Eden Ciders, and Clown Shoes

Another week and another great drop including some treats from Fantome and Eden Ciders. Here we go!:

FANTOME

  • Fantome Lea’s Journey 750ml – Globe-Trotting Farmhouse Ale. Typically enigmatic!
  • Fantome Hiver 750ml – Brewer Dany Prignon changes his recipes every year, so we can’t so for sure what this year’s beer will be like, but it is sure to please lovers of Dany’s beers. 8% ABV.
  • Fantome Boo! 750ml – Special Fall Belgian ale. 8% ABV.

EDEN CIDERS

  • Eden BRANDY BARREL HEIRLOOM ICE CIDER 375ML – This limited production run of Eden flagship Heirloom Blend Ice Cider has been aged in 10-year old barrels previously used for apple brandy. It has notes of caramel, apple sauce, and vanilla, a round, full mouthfeel, and plenty of acidity to create a lasting, refreshing finish.
  • Eden HONEYCRISP ICE CIDER 375ML – This tangy, elegant ice cider is made 100% from Vermont-grown Honeycrisp apples. The Honeycrisp is a prized Northern USA apple variety. As its name suggests, there is a honeyed quality to its sweetness, accompanied by sufficient acidity to keep the flavor fresh and crisp. Enjoy with cheese, maple crème Brulee, or butter cookies. 10% ABV.
  • Eden HEIRLOOM BLEND ICE CIDER 375ML – Ice Cider brings the essence of pure apple to a sophisticated dessert wine. Vermont’s natural winter cold is used to concentrate cider to the optimum balance of sweetness and acidity. Our unique blend of traditional and heirloom apples produces a complex, delicious flavor that complements food yet may be savored on its own. It takes over 8 lbs. of apples to make just one beautiful bottle! 10% ABV.

CLOWN SHOES

  • Clown Shoes Churro Sombrero 16oz CAN – The latest entry into our Sombrero series, Churro Sombrero features sweet dessert notes from cinnamon and vanilla bean additions. This richly textured Mexican-Style Chocolate Stout gives a fresh twist of unique texture and flavor. 7% ABV.
  • Clown Shoes Double Dry Hopped Yeeehaaw 16oz CAN – New England IPA doubles down on its tropical citrus focus with a double dry hopping in the fermentation tank. With Citra, Azacca, and Mosaic hops leading the way, DDH YEEEHAAW! is an explosion of the fruit notes and smooth full-bodied flavor that is exemplary of this modern style. 7% ABV.
  • Clown Shoes Banshee and the Beast 22oz BOT – Blended Imperial Stout aged in Irish Whiskey and Bourbon barrels. Bold roasted malt flavor gives way to a smooth finish, abetted by barrel-aged complexity and the soft hints of Bourbon and Irish Whiskey. 10.25% ABV.
  • Clown Shoes Clementine 4/6/12oz CAN – Delicious Clementine witbier. 6.0% ABV.
