Old Yellow: Oskar Blues Releases French’s Mustard Beer

By Neat Pour Staff |

The brewers at Oskar Blues are widely credited with ushering in craft beers in cans with their celebrated Dale’s Pale Ale. Yet, their newest offering seems be a little more of niche market. Oskar Blues just released a Mustard Beer.

Launched on August 1 to honor National Mustard Day (yes, there’s a Day for everything), the yellow (not amber or gold, yellow) suds are a collaboration between the brewery and French’s Yellow Mustard.

“With French’s Mustard Beer, we elevated the Classic Yellow Mustard flavor with tangy lemon and lime to create a tropical wheat ale I’d pair with a loaded hot dog on the hottest day of the year,” said Head Brewer Juice Drapeau in a release.

Alas, we haven’t sampled this moutarde mashup yet. So, we’ll have to rely on Oskar Blues’ tasting notes to understand the flavor.

“The beer was made with mustard, gumption, more mustard, and a careful yet experimental brewing process. It includes hints of key lime, lemon, tangerine, and passion fruit to create a tart, refreshing match for the spice and zip of the mustard,” the brewery told drinkers. “The result is a crisp and slightly salty beer.”

French’s Mustard Beer is a limited release available at Oskar Blues’ Longmont, Boulder, and Brevard taprooms, with a 2 case limit. Also available online at CraftShack.
