    Should be another great month!

    Has anyone opened up a bottle of RFI? Didn't get to try it on draft, and will probably open up 1 next week

    Lets try and fix the formatting on some of these, can you do (Q2 2018) in the parentheses?

    I popped a RFI Sunday and it tasted very good. Thick and creamy with cinnamon. I dont even like cinnamon, but this beer was good. Think I'll keep my bottles after all

    Yes. Having only the Q2 in parentheses really takes me out of the thread

    I'm going to wait at least a year to crack open my ONLY bottle. What a difference a YEAR makes.

    Had one of my bottles of RFI a few nights ago. Was very tasty, but also very hot. Can't wait to revisit in 6 months and see how it develops.

    Did it have a sort of doughy taste? I thought the draft version was a bit doughy, which makes sense since it's supposed to be like a cinnamon roll.

    I didn't get any vanilla fwiw, it was cinnamon throughout, hope time would sort it out.

    I thought it was much better out of the bottle. Better mouthfeel and my mind went to 'Bourbon cinnamon toast crunch' instead of 'whoa that's a lot of cinnamon'

    Agree. On draft (although very, very cold) it was very cinnamon heavy. Out of the bottle it was much more balanced. Drinks very easy.

    Didn’t get a bottle, but I had it on draft during week of logic. It was cinnamon overload, but still very tasty. I’m an avid fan of cinnamon in general, so i really found it enjoyable. I can see if someone isn’t a huge cinnamon fan it might be too overwhelming. Overall it’s a solid brew. Wish I had a bottle or two of it!

    Much better out of the bottle but I think the best is yet to come. I'd say in 6-9 months RFI will be perfect, this is coming from someone who isn't a huge cinnamon fan.

    I agree, for some reason B1 was very "meh" for me, the one I had a WOL tasted like a fantastic coconut stout.

    from draft or from the bottle?

    I loved B1 both draft and from the bottle! Hoping I'll like the new batch as much.

    Space Trace b1 was my first venture out to BL for a bottle release/visit. Had it from bottle at the very least - can't remember if it was on draft during pick up. The LA Extreme Beer Fest version of Space Trace b2 was much improved over b1 for me, personally. Everyone seems to be in agreement that the WoL version was better than LA XBeer Fest, which makes sense.

    Unfortunately, can't justify a trip out for b2. Not enough time, money. Kids are the (best) worst!

    Space Trace was on draft for at least 4 weekends. I can't imagine you skipped a pour of it while picking up bottles! If so, I'm so sorry.

    I wasn't planning on visiting their area until May 5th weekend, but now with B2 coming up... I will have to change my schedule so I'll be able to get pours of if on draft. Can't take a chance it'll be available the 3rd weekend!

    Space Trace was probably my favorite "ready" for 2018 beer at WOL. Can't wait!

    The limits for the public sale of Space Trace is 2 bottles.

    From the AOE e-mail
    "Take part in the Public Sale at noon on Sunday, 4/15 in order to purchase two more bottles and complete a full allocation!"

    Gonna be a hard pass for me. With all the media attention and the vintage bottles/kegs getting popped, it's going to be a shit show. FOb3 release day last year was a nightmare. This will likely be similar to that day, and with there being even less standing room in the rear with all those new tanks, probably worse.

    The main clue was the term cosmonaut. Also, the stardate apparently translated to a date corresponding to the date of his cover on TIME magazine.
