Happy Easter Cheers
in spite of all the negative, my family's cup floweth over
Triple Shot is poured, lamb is on the grill, potatoes are on the boil, the weather is great, kids are home.....good day so far. Stay safe folks, drink well, and enjoy your Easter!
Karben 4, Hotspot Hazy. Cheers.
Good Afternoon Heathens,
Named for a contest pitting Eric (Hen of the Wood, Pro Pig), Mark (Reservoir), and Ari (Zenbarn) against each other with the winner being crowned Mr. Waterbury!
16 oz. can.
Moderate pour yields a one and 1/2 inch white head over a slightly hazy, straw colored body with some sticky lacing. Nose of citrus (grapefruit, orange, and tangerine.) Taste of grapefruit (white, ruby red.) Very good feel and overall, a real good little IPA brewed and canned in Williston, VT.
C&P from NBS.
Damn son. You bring a new meaning to freshness.
Wait what‘s this? Finally a well done Dipa by a german brewery? Well, you got me, Fat Head‘s was involved in this. Cheers!
Fremont -- Golden Pilsner
4/5 rDev +1.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Light, straw yellow body; active carbonation; thick and frothy white head. Soft biscuit-like aroma; a touch of fresh, green grass in the mix. The taste follows along the lines of the smell; light esters, pear-like; mild hop bitterness nicely complementing the mild malt base; very clean tasting. Light body; crisp; relatively dry overall.
This is a fine American pilsner, delicate yet tasty, balanced and subtly complex.
Beer #5 is Technicolor Splendor from Tired Hands.
Lupulin Strictly Illegal Triple IPA, 11% ABV. Pours cloudy dark orange, with a four-finger off-white head that left foamy lacing. Nose is tropical fruits, oranges, toffee, pine, some zest. Taste is orange, toffee/caramel, berries, pine, moderately sweet, slightly bitter. Booze wasn't obvious, which could be dangerous at 11%. Smooth mouthfeel, overall outstanding. One of the best DIPAs I've had.
4.54/5 rDev +5.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Wow, NEVER thought I'd rate an IPA this high, really incredible brew. Last (hopefully) blast of winter here with 5" of snow, should be ending soon. And of course I woke up to a malfunctioning furnace. I opened it up, nothing obvious, just clicking, so I punched the damn thing - and it started working again. I've been meaning to replace it, so looks like that will happen sooner than later.
Finishing the bottle. Didn't post the second pour.
been craving a golden bullet hows it tasting?
2013. Kasteel Cuvee du Chateau. This has been aged 7 years although most of those were on a dusty shelf at a beer store where I found it stuffed away a few months ago. The original $12.99 price tag was still on it. Someone wasn't paying attention....
Their error was my gain.
I've been trying to support all local breweries during this COVID sh*t, but today I broke that rule.
At least I bought it from a Mom & Pop gas station/carry-out.
Another very good beer from Transient Artisan Ales - Moon Money.
Tried this one as a blind beer from @ovaltine

Beer me I guess. Can't dance no way. HAPPY EASTER to all my BA's!!
Happy Easter, Ba's!. Great to see Jolly in much more affordable cans. I love ginger and add a big chunk of fresh ginger each day to my morning smoothie. Not a big sour/barrel aged saisons guy, but this damn refreshing and tasty for $3.79 a can.
Happy Easter, BA! Finishing off the Spring Landscapes I picked up before the weekend. Now confidently one of my favorite beers ever, a 6% abv Mint Helles Bock at a cheaper price point than usually charged for Industrial Arts' series of seasonal lagers.
Happy Easter! German beers for me today. First pour, Rothaus Pills Tannen Zapfle, an expensive offering ($14.99 + tax for six pack) purchased at The Beer Temple Friday. Best by date 7/17/20, couldn't find on the internet how to translate to bottled date. 12.2 oz bottle poured into a tall Pilsner glass.
Appearance: Faint clear straw color pour, one inch white bubbly creamy head leaves soapy lacing. Very heavy carbonation throughout. 3.5
Aroma: Nice bold and pleasant Pilsner malt, fresh cracker, pepper, lemongrass backs well. 4.5
Taste: Malt taste leads, light bread and lemongrass follows. Lightly dry and bitter. Fresh! 4.25
Mouthfeel: Strong fizzy carbonation lasts throughout, light crisp clean body, mouthfeel and finish. 3.75
Overall: Very good Pilsner. Pricey but still glad I grabbed a six pack. 4.0
Garden Path Fermentation • The Wet Hopped Ship
Thanks for sharing, that was awesome!
The weather went from cool and cloudy to warm and sunny. My wife is trying to get an early start on her tan and I’m enjoying a beer and a sandwich. Angus is doing what he does best.
Finally grabbed this flagship from Tonewood. The can says juicy and dank. The description is correct, and I love it.
Is that as good as Hopslam?
Fox Farm - Copestone (batch 2)
An unbelievably huge and sincere thanks to @jrc1093 for this. A seriously great guy, and I consider it an honour to know him. Thank you Jake. You're something else, man.
This barleywine is just ridiculous. There's actually a fair amount of some roasty malt here, giving it a bit of a blended strong ale vibe. It's far from a stout, but that roast adds a whole other dimension. The aroma is complex as hell, with blueberry, strawberry, and grape jam, brown sugar, caramel, oak, and bourbon, with some crazy port fruit complexity. Drinks with a restrained sweetness, a wonderful balance of bourbon and port, some dry roast, a subtle hint of hops, and serious oak tannins in the finish. Unbelievably drinkable for 13.5%. Full-bodied, but not cloying, sticky, or thick. Just a really unique barleywine, and extremely enjoyable. So glad I got to try this.
Got a lot of cleaning and re-organizing done today, time for a beer now.
Got way more vinyl I wanted to spin last night, but ran out of energy and liver space
Orval and Tom Waits Rain Dogs and Sowrdfishtrombone Might put on some Captain Beefheart later cause I'm liking the weird vibes here.
Happy Easter to you and yours! Kids are old so no egg hunt or coloring of eggs, but did pick up these Easter goods for us this morning...
Suckerpunch Berliner Weiss while the Mr. home brews.
Much love, my friend. As always I'm glad to provide some cheer, especially now. Glad to see you're enjoying.
New to me beer before grilling a feast for the immediate fam. Happy Easter! Cheers!
Usual Easter family gathering on hold due to the current pandemic. So it’s just the wife and I chilling out today. Plus,next week both our birthdays are coming up on the 14th and 15th. Weird times but we are healthy and will make the best of it. Health and happy wishes to you all.
Wayfinder Beer -- Crusher Destroyer
3.98/5 rDev -3.6%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
Clear, dark brown body; nice, slow rising carbonation; decent head, not too thick yet lasting. Nice aroma; dark roasted grain primarily; a dab of chocolate. Rich malt flavor; roasted nuts and caramel; some bitterness cutting through the sweetness. Heavy body; rich and syrupy; nice residual sugar body; fairly sweet overall with a hint of alcohol warmth.
The can labels this as a smoked bock, but I get very little (if any) sense of smoke in the taste, and certainly none in the smell. But as a rich, malt-forward bock beer (at 7.2% ABV, it could be considered a doppelbock), it's pretty damn tasty.
Always drink one of these on Easter.
I tried to get a case from them a week ago, but Texas isn't on the list...I would gladly pay $18 shipping.
That was just like me. More beers and vinyl than I could safely get away with yesterday. There's always this thread, though, on a daily basis, and I'm sure we'll have another vinyl themed Saturday in the future.
Bourbon County Midnight Orange. It’s lost a little bit of orange, it’s still there though. Hope you all are having a good Easter Sunday.
