The Mighty Aphrodite

Ommegang Brewing is located in Cooperstown, NY and they specialize in belgian style brewing right here in the US.  The Aphrodite is a very unique offering from a brewery that specializes in unique.  This beer is fragrant and fruity and DRY.  As an 8.9% fruit beer it blows away most comparable beers in this category for ABV.  This one won't be for everyone, but it's certainly worth a pint, just to say you tried it.  And for some, they'll be enamoured with this Goddess of Love.  She's a one and done, so get your fill while you can... for soon she will be gone... never to return.  Sweet sips and dreams, my lovely.

Some notes from Ommegang:

In Greek mythology, Aphrodite rises from the foam of the
 waves of the sea, enchanting all who see her, and inciting thoughts of love and lust where ever she goes.
We could hardly say it more eloquently. Our Limited Edition Aphrodite Ale is ethereal, intriguing and mysterious – as the Goddess Aphrodite
 must have been. Aphrodite has champagne-like carbonation, much as the foam of the waves of the sea. Plus enchanting flavors with whispers of raspberry and pear, and hints of funk and tartness created by the Brett yeast. The refreshing dryness comes from the unusual combination of Ommegang and Brett yeasts, and incites feelings of love and thirst, though we don’t know about lust. Grains of paradise are infused into the nectar, and when poured Aphrodite is crowned with a luxuriously shimmering rose-pink head.
