  9. All your guys clues are a bit hazy. Stop being so Hazel, brah.
     
  10. All these riddles are driving my friend, Hazel, nuts!
     
  11. What are all of the BGS beers listed on tap?

    BGS is a Belgian Golden Strong ale. They've brewed five separate batches using different yeast strains. Like White Labs tap room.

    The differences were significantly less pronounced than the portolla rosa flight.
     
  14. The coffee flight was ten times better then the BGS flight. But im not a belgian fan really.

    The blurb on the taster sheet for the BGS flight said the five different yeasts created "five drastically different beers." Would a small majority of even their most discerning customers find the difference to "drastic?" Did anyone find them very different??

    at current count my drinking buddies and i are 0/10 on being able to discern any real difference.

    That being said, I'm glad the Bruery is experimenting this way, as at the very least it offers up some variety from the typical offerings and poses a challenge to my palette. I intend to try the flight again with more focus, with the hope that I can pick out more/different flavors.
     
  17. Like, You totally have to Like, Like them. For sure, to the max. I mean, I like them, but like like them?
     
  18. The grey monday was so delicious . Was a bit sweeter then the black tuesday for sure.

  19. Now the real question. For those with bottles, is it something to drink now, as the hazel would be something that drops off if aged? Or let it sit a while since, you know, everyone got one bottle and that kung fu grip around it is tight.

    I actually found GM to be less sweet than BT. I could not discern any hazelnut flavor at all. I like GM more than BT.

    I've probably tasted GM from five different bottles at events and only in the the most recent one did I pick up any discernable hazelnut. It does smooth out the beer though.
     
  22. Chew on the scented bottle wax a little before sipping to bring out the hazelnut.

    That doesn't surprise me. It's completely counterintuitive, but I always find Chocolate Rain far less sweet than BT so I can imagine this being the case for Monday as well.
