Ninkasi “Believer”

89 B+

Believer is an Amber/Red Ale available year-round, labeled “Double Red Ale,” though this style doesn’t actually exist. I’d like to thank the Portland-based design firm, Frank Creative, for their donation of this bottle. Aromas include a sweetness like caramel, toasted grains, earthy hops that come across like orange spice, and fruity ale yeast.


The palate reflects the nose, beginning with a brown sugar sweetness that blends into caramelized malts. Citrus highlights immediately follow with a flavor like ripe oranges, hints of grapefruit, and lemon zest. A looming bitterness rises up from behind, executing a soft climax that stirs up a body of leafy, evergreen-centered hops. Malts eventually reveal faint roasted notes akin to smoked grain with hints of cocoa. Citric notes continue to ring out, merging with flavors left behind from the herbal finish, creating a vibe sort of like sweet tea and lemon. Fruity, berry-like flavors fill up the remainder of the palate with raspberry overtones. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth at first, held over an above-average body weight that grows slightly more abrasive as hop oils accumulate into a mildly sticky conclusion.


Overall, the combination of bitter, sweet, and sour are each held in agreeable balance. Likewise, the hop/malt ratio is perfect for the style, where hops take a gentle lead. This is a solid brew, albeit one that lacks complexity and novelty. If you’re just getting into hoppy beers, but still want the balance found in an Amber Ale, this is probably a good match. Since this was my first experience with Ninkasi, I’m determined not to let this isolated experience determine my thoughts on the brewery as a whole. I don’t wholeheartedly recommend it, but this is certainly a good beer.
