This recipe is basically fall in a glass, minus football flavoring. The addition of rye to the bill brings things into "spicy in an autumn kind of way" territory, with flavors of vanilla and toffee that bring to mind graham crackers, and its vibrant carbonation (thanks to in-bottle re-fermentation) works well with the full-bodied texture. This should be a go-to bottle for you to bring to any dinner party this season.
Belgian tripel, 8.5%
There's a very good chance that as you reach for your favorite hoodie for the first time this season, you’ll start craving a really solid Belgian tripel. Go for a Sibling Rivalry. Expect all of the fruit-forward flavors you get with Belgian yeast, but with a non-traditional (and well-integrated) hop presence thanks to the use of Nugget and Sorachi Ace hops in the recipe. It's enough to warm your bones and get the blood flowing without being over the top.
