Liked the response, did not enjoy the beer.
this puppy i drank last night. First time trying the style. Twas goood
Utopias. Sink the Bismarck, wicked weed's amorous
DFH Sixty One as previously mentioned (beer/wine hybrid).
Hill Farmstead's (2013) Phenomenology of Spirit - labeled as a Saison /Farmhouse Ale, but was slightly sour and had a whole lot more going on in the flavor profile than any Saison / Farmhouse Ale I've ever tried.
Lost Nation Gose (or probably any well made Gose like Westbrook etc.) - just because its such a rare style with the slighty salty, slightly tart thing going on. Nothing like it.
Hands down for me is Goose Island Identity Crisis. It was a porter they made. It had an amazing smell of cordial cherries and coffee. Taste was the same. Amazing stuff! What makes it even more unique is the bartender said it wasn't necessarily what the brewmaster intended, and they could not replicate it for some reason. So when it was gone, it was gone. Glad I got to have 4 glasses that night, sad I will never have another glass again.
Tired Hands Key Lime
Ccb humidor ipa
I had one made with whale blubber the other day, Stedji Hvalur. I'll throw that review up once after this new Iceland brewery gets approval from BeerAdvocate. Yep, whale blubber.
i actually enjoyed this beer. it tastes exactly like the description and i gotta give em credit for that. i can see why someone would hate it but i like bloody marys and thought it was pretty close to that.
I was having trouble thinking of a truly unique beer. It seems like so many beers that might've once been unique catch on and are brewed by other brewers--especially if the first is successful. For example, Dogfish Head 61 was unique, but now multiple brewers are doing beers brewed with wine grape must/juice: Odell Jaunt, Boulevard Entwined are the two newest entries, but there are also ones like the Deschutes/Goose Island Class of 88 Belgian-style Ale. Or take the coined term "Mexican Imperial Stout"--someone brewed the first imperial stout with some combination of chocolate, chilis and/or spices, but now they are everywhere--Abraxas, Hunahpu, Mexican Cake, Prairie Bomb! and many more I'm forgetting.
And even beers I remember standing out in my mind, aren't particularly unique from a stylistic standpoint. One that came to mind was GI Gillian, which was a farmhouse/wild ale with white pepper and strawberries. Obviously, many brewers have created sour/funky barrel-aged beers with additives like pepper and fruit, but I'd never tasted one that so captured the essence of the fruit and spice.
And then I remembered Boulevard Tripel Julep - their Long Strange Tripel aged in whiskey barrels with fresh mint leaves. Now *that* was a different beer. BBA tripels already seem a little uncommon (the only one I can think of is Allagash's Curieux), but the use of fresh mint leaves really made it unique to my mind.
Personally, I liked it, but I know it was a pretty polarizing beer around KC.
Didn't hate the beer, didn't love it either. Was pretty unique.
I've seen this around and have been wanting to try it, but have not pulled the trigger for some reason. It sounds like something I would like though.
It really wasnt terrible, I would say its worth a try.
Definitely surprisingly not bad. I don't think I'd go out of my way for it, bit I'd happily do another if I got one of those variety packs again.
I thought I might like it. I'd try it again ... I had it almost two years ago when I was just starting to get into beer.
Dogfish Head Fluckey Fest. Brewpub exclusive back in 2007. 51% pilsner malt, 49% Chardonnay grapes. Champagne yeast.
Nothing too out of the ordinary. The most unique was probably a Japanese green tea beer called Kinshachi Matcha Draft. It was disgusting.
Fantome Magic Ghost. Definitely the most unique looking beer.
Now thinking about it, not sure any other brewery has tried to age their DIPA in tequila barrels.
It's always the last beer I just had.
Hey! I'm a fairly new craft beer lover, but I had a Dogfish Head Hellhound Ale which was unique to me. Actually,I loved it!
Agreed - but (for me) that would be unique in a bad way
I got a bottle of Kelpie several years back (before I rated beers) as a novelty. I was surprised that I enjoyed it. As a student of history, it was neat drinking a beer that was similar to brews made many centuries ago.
3 Brothers 8 Bells...
Vanberg & Dewulf Lambrucha
Sam Adams Triple Bock - 1996 version I think. Super soy flavor and thick thick thick oh my God thick. Definitely unique. Not my favorite but really glad I tried it.
Also, as someone else said, Humidor Series IPA from CCB.... wow, just wow. I loved it but I don't think I have had an IPA with that kind of flavor to it. I think the cedar could turn a lot of people off.
Was it this guy?
+1. Amazing beer and totally unique. Sadly, at $10 at the brewpub I only had one. I really hope that story isn't true because I'd like to have it again.
I had a Breakside miso stout a couple of weeks ago and the Commons Four Play is also a big change of pace. Some of the Propolis beers are pretty unusual.
Stone Matt's Burning Rosids
Bruery White Chocolate
DFH Palo Santo Marron
and back in 2010... BCBVS
(1) Mikkeller's Beer Geek Brunch Weasel - civit poo
(2) Wynkoop Rocky Mountain Oyster Stout - testes
(3) Rogue Beard Beer - face pube yeast
The one that sticks out to me in a good way was DeMolen Rook & Leer at Monks on Zwanze day. Imperial smoked porter, whiskey barrel aged and soured with Brett. Yeah, it was as good as it sounds.
Most unique in a bad way was DFH 61. Just......no.
Sprecher Mama Mia was certainly unique for it's time.
Banana beer I drank in Sud Afrika (don't remember the name) that came packaged in a carton like milk does and cost me 2 Rand.
Rancid. Fucking Rancid. I spat that shit straight out in a spray and then threw the mostly full carton on the ground and stomped on it before I ran away.
The first brews that come to mind are the Voodoo Doughnut beers, and this ale I had recently from Italy brewed with fresh homegrown asparagus, it was very interesting.
Great choices, although the Burning Rosids did kind of remind me of Unibroue Raftman (but done correctly ). That one I really dug, and went back for a few more bottles.
Another one that comes to mind for me is Allagash Odyssey- a dark strong wheat beer (10%) with candi sugar, aged in oak barrels. I've never had anything quite like it, in a good way.
Mama Mia! Pizza Beer
Two brothers domane dupage. Loved every second of that 'french country ale' with spices and man was it unique. Also, second the saison du buff. That was right as I was entering the beer world and never had a saison before. Loved it and will buy it again fresh (2 year old bottles....no thanks )
Green Flash - Rayon Vert. It blows me away everytime. And I actually love that it's overcarbonated! Adds to it's uniqueness.
