    NBS #4

    Incredible milkshake sour. Fantastic head retention/foamy lacing. Amazing color. Aromas and flavors of huge juicy/tart/tangy blueberry, raspberry, fruit skin/seed, lime, citrus peel/zest, orange, peach, plum, pear, apricot, red/green apple, currant, red grape/wine, hay, straw, and grass; with balanced vanilla, cream, wheat, biscuit dough malts sweetness; light peppercorn, musty/lacto funk, and yeast earthiness. Light fruity/lactic tartness, fruit tang, and Brett spiciness on the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; very creamy, silky, bready, grainy wheat/lactose; some lactic acid, and fruit tang/tannins in the mouthfeel. Lightly increasing lingering acidic/tangy dryness; no cloying/pucker. Amazingly smooth/soft, zero warming 6.5%. Amazing balance between super juicy/jammy fruit, and Brett/Lacto complexity; with a great rich lactose, and pale/wheat malt backbone against acidity. Light residual sweetness with lingering acidic/tangy dryness. Not as amazing as the Double Boysenberry Blackberry Black Currant version, but really close. This one is definitely softer/silkier. 4.28

    I have never disliked anything from this brewery.
    This offering is no exception!

    [​IMG]

    11.2 oz. bottle.
    15% abv.
    Moderate to vigorous pour yields a 1/8 inch tan head over a black body with no lacing as head is gone in a couple minutes. Nose of vanilla, dark roasted malts, dark fruit, coffee, and whisky. Taste mirrors nose very well with a bit of Kahlua (!?!) and finishing nicely with vanilla, caramel, and whisky. Wow! Nice feel and overall, another excellent offering from Landvetter, Sweden. Cheers!!!

    C&P from NBS.

    I used to really love this beer, not so much anymore. It comes off as bland anymore, and boozy. The scotch is choice.

    Satsuma Orange sour. This was fantastic. Bit of a gusher. Great fluffy head retention/spotty soapy lacing. Aromas and flavors of big juicy/tart/tangy oranges, lemon, lime, citrus peel/zest, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, mango, melon, red/green apple, white grape/wine, peppercorn, hay, straw, and grass; with some wheat, cracker, white bready malts; lighter notes of leathery/musty/lacto funk, white wine vinegar, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tart/sourness, citrus tang, and Brett/oak tannin spiciness on the finish. Medium-plus carbonation, light-medium body, and fairly crisp finishing. Balanced bready/grainy wheat, lactic acid, fruit tang, and some oak tannins in the mouthfeel. Light-moderate increasing acidic/tangy dryness; no pucker/astringency. Refreshingly smooth, not overly lactic, zero warming 6.2%. Fantastic balance of super juicy/vibrant oranges and Brett/Bacteria complexity; with great oak presence and pale/wheat malts against acidity. Minimal residual sweetness with crisp acidic/tangy dryness. Another easy winner. They have been putting out a lot of impressive sours/saisons. 4.25

    Matricide by Nightmare. This is definitely my nitecap. Sweet, without being overly sweet. Big time nutty coconut chocolate taste. Vicious and thick feel. Like, a spoon could stand up straight in it. Pretty smooth for 15%. Night, all.

    Yep, it’s safe to say that I’m at my local bar (Tustin Brew Co). While talking to another decked out Dodger fan, the bartender just planted a Pliny in front of me and walked away. No monetary transaction (they know I’m good for it.)

    Cheers!:

    Closer for the evening. This one is an anomaly, poured with no head despite a vigorous pour, and has virtually no carbonation. It tastes fine, just a little flat without the carbonation. No clue what happened to this can ... :rolling_eyes:

    A new-to-me blend of Kriek from 3F.
    Blend No. 33.
    ABV 5.7%.
    Bottling Date:
    14 JUN 2017.
    Best Before:
    26 OCT 2037.

    Moderate pour yields a 1/2 inch light pink head over a dark pink body with scant lacing. Nose of cherry, a bit of funk, and lemon. Taste mirrors nose extremely well with a nice tart finish that I look for in any Kriek. Nice feel and overall, a really nice example of the style. Buy it if you find it. Cheers!!!!

    Allagash offering I had Friday night for the first time. Tonight with dinner of marinated broiled chicken thighs marinated in garlic, salt, black pepper, chilpotle powder, Herbs de Provence, turmeric, white port, dry vermouth with a side of garlic, vidalia onion, fire roasted diced tomatoes, and brown rice. This pairing is delicious!
    Cheers!!!!!

    Amazing sour! Fantastic lasting fluffy head retention/thick foamy lacing. Aromas and flavors of huge juicy/tart/tangy pink guava, fruit skin/seeds, lemon, lime, peach, pear, pineapple, apricot, passion fruit, papaya, mango, honeydew melon, blueberry, citrus peel/zest, tequila, toasted oak, peppercorn, hay, straw, and grass; with moderate agave, wheat, cracker, white bread dough malts; lighter notes of bourbon, oaken vanilla, leathery/musty/lacto funk, white wine vinegar, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate fruity/lactic tart/sourness, fruit tang, and yeast/oak tannin spiciness on the finish. Medium-plus carbonation, medium body, and fairly crisp finishing. Balanced creamy/grainy wheat, lactic acid, fruit tang/tannins in the mouthfeel. Light-moderate increasing acidic/tangy/tannic dryness; zero pucker/astringency. Super smooth, nicely soft, not overly lactic, minimal warming 7.4%. Amazing balance of super juicy/vibrant Guava/Mosaic hop and Brett/Bacteria complexity; with great Tequila barrel presence and pale/wheat malts against acidity. One of their best beers I've had. Loved the last one they put in a Tequila Barrel - Facilitated Adaptation; this is even better than that. 4.4

    Great song from Enya who hails from Donegal, where I grew up.....when I hear that song now I automatically think of the 911 tribute videos that had Only Time as an anthem! A very fitting song indeed.

    Well I thought the flat hippie chick was going to be my last beer, but I had to try another to see if it was just an anomaly, and it was. Crappy pour on my part, I got a bit overzealous. I also have some 3 year old cheddar to munch on and that demands a good IPA.
