    Seriously. Her second choice was a weizen glass. :grimacing:

    BTW, I am planning to pass along all of your compliments on her work. She will appreciate them, of that I am certain. Cheers! :slight_smile:

    Happy Monday BA's!!! Tonight I'm having ground beef tacos with a Mccormick seasoning/sauce pack, diced tomatoes, kidney beans, chopped chili peppers, and hot sauce to go with my first bottle of Bell's Saturn from the planet series. This is really good!!!

    Great pale lager. Flavors of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, light pepper, and piney hops; with light-moderate cracker/bready pils malt; and floral/grassy hop earthiness. A bit of peach/pineapple fruitiness is also in the aromas only. Light-moderate pine/citrus peel bitterness; smooth/crisp/dry finish; with light hop stickiness and grainy malt in the mouthfeel. Very refreshing! Nice robust hop flavors with a solid malt backbone. Nice clean lagering, never yeasty. Probably Columbus or Chinook on the dry hops. Far more flavorful than the base beer that I remember a few years ago when it was first released in the mix pack; only time I've ever had it. Finished off the 3 I had in the variety pack. Still got some Kolsch and Wit left.

    This is really great stuff. Flavors of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, passion fruit, mango, and light pine; balanced honey, cracker, biscuit malt; and herbal/floral/grassy hop earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy bitterness with slight fruit tartness on the finish. Medium bodied; balanced grainy creaminess and hop stickiness in the mouthfeel. Lightly drying from hop bitterness on the finish through the glass. Refreshing and fairly crisp. Really spot on for a pale ale. Really well balanced, and really doesn't feel like a fruit beer. Not overloaded on the fruits, but enough to meld well against the hop character. Glad this is year round, because I have been buying it a lot.

    Great cherry Belgian brown ale. Flavors of big tart cherries, berries, green apple, red grape, caramel, brown sugar, toasted bread, hay, straw and light pepper/leather/funk. Light-moderate fruity tartness and yeast spiciness; with an awesome balance of sweetness/tartness after the finish. Very smooth with light acidity and bready creaminess in the mouthfeel. Absolutely delicious. This is more along the lines of a Lindemans type kriek(low funk, some grassy/spicy yeast notes) but it is way more balanced and not too sweet. I have bought multiple 4 packs since they released it already.

    Very nice standard IPA. Flavors of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, light pepper, and pine hops; with moderate biscuit/light caramel malts; and herbal/floral/grassy hop earthiness. Moderate pine/grassy bitterness; medium body with balanced stickiness and bready creaminess in the mouthfeel. Light-moderate sticky hop dryness. A nice and very tasty IPA. I would buy again as singles like this one was. Will likely revisit a lot of Alaskan stuff very soon that I haven't had in 2 years since they landed in the state(except for the Altbier, since I've bought that a lot since then). Very consistently good brewery across the board for me.

    Hit up Bosque to watch some Monday Night Football. Got to enjoy my Eagles victory with a couple Oktoberfests and a Wet Hop IPA, Acequia. Good night all around but I worry about tomorrow morning.

    Oktoberfest type IPA. Deschutes always have a certain flavor in all the beers I have tried from them. In this beer it's evident in the smell as well. If I brewed I would know? They go down good on my last 2nd shift

    A celebratory beer to close out tonight's festivities. This would have been my first post as a Poobah. Yes, I've been keeping track. I even pulled up a copy of the most recent trophies page on the Wayback Machine and put together a spreadsheet that automatically keeps track of my karma points. (Are there bonus points for being a total nerd?)

    Well, what would you celebrate with? :stuck_out_tongue:
