    Have a good Saturday. I was up in Michigan for a few days this week, still have some stuff in my old apartment, but now I only have one car load left over to get. I got all of my homebrewing equipment and the rest of my cellar transferred now. Also went to dinner with a couple old colleagues I hadn’t seen in a while. Was a good few days. I just slept on my lone recliner I had that I will be giving away after I turn in my keys. It gave me a knot in my shoulder for 3 days, but it’s getting better. I am going out with my girlfriend later this evening, going to an Asian bistro and a board game bar. It’s her birthday on Monday, so I need to go find some roses last minute somewhere, I bet Walmart would have some.

    Also got a family picture of my guitars, these have all not been in the same room before.

    The return of the lamp, I adjusted aperture a bit wider though. Shiner Morello Dark Cherry. Very nice stuff. Lasting fluffy head retention/foamy lacing. Aromas and flavors of big red/black cherries, fruit skin/pits, almonds, cocoa, coffee, brown bread/crust, light caramel, herbal, wood, grass, and peppery hops. Getting a very slight metallic note. Light herbal, woody, grassy, peppery, roasted bitterness; and light fruit tang/tartness on the finish. Medium carbonation/body, and fairly crisp finishing. Creamy/bready malts, some sticky hops, chalky roast, and fruit tang/tannins in the mouthfeel. Light-moderate increasing bitter/tart dryness, no cloying/acrid/astringent flavors. Perfectly clean lagering, no fruity/yeasty notes. Pretty refreshing, minimal warming 7%. Great balance of juicy cherries, dark/roasted malts, and earthy hops. Mild residual sweetness with lingering bitter/tart/tangy dryness. Quite impressive for a fruit beer. 3.93

    Morning all, drinking cuvée des trolls, it’s been a while since I had it.

    Good one, a fine BSPA.

    3 six% ABV rated 4+ Beers of October 2020
    Goldenrod | Decadent Ales | IPA | 6.3% | Mamaroneck NY
    4.27
    /5 rDev +0.5%
    look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
    4th Review. Decadent nails this one.
    a) Pours pale straw color, very hazy. Finger full of structured, white head that lasts and lacs.
    s) Floral, grapefruit rind, blossoms, and citrusy hops.
    t) Best part - floral, citrus flavors in a see-saw batter of bitterness and fruit.
    f) Creamy mouthfeel.
    o) My tasting partner and I agreed best beer of evening.

    Premiere IPA - Double Dry-Hopped | Interboro | NE-IPA | 6% | Brooklyn
    4.11
    /5 rDev +1.2%
    look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
    20th review. My first from this "local" Brooklyn brewer.
    a) Hazed expected body, with reviving head and lacing suds.
    s) Myriad hops. Maze of flavors.
    t) Atop a pilsner, lighter, more sessionable base... The myriad hops maze into a lovely arch of woody, cedary, powdery finale.
    f) Likewise chalky, powdering, yet some how juicy. Lovely texture
    o) Clearly a brewer I want to visit and stalk.

    Saison Violette | Allagash | Saison | 6% | Portland Maine
    4.02
    /5 rDev +2.3%
    look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
    9th review. works for me. Very original and among the top fruit-infused saisons. Allagash does Blueberries and Belgian well.
    a) A real and lasting head and lace in a field beer - great.
    s) Perhaps its the name but reminds me of violet gum my mom used to fancy.
    t) Everything I want in a 6% Fruit Saison. Harvest leaves, orchard, tea, wet grass and only the suggestion of blueberry.
    f) Plenty of heft, but light and well carbed.
    o) Needs to be test tasted against other fruit-field saisons.

    It is 37 degrees and raining. I am going to run five miles in this weather, and this beer will be waiting for me at the finish line. I will then take a long, emotional shower.

    I'll join @GreenBayBA with a post run beer. It was 58° with a misty drizzle out. Time for a delicious stout.

    Happy Saturday, BAs! Arvon might be new favorite ipa producer. Definitely the best new-to-me brewery of the last 2 years. Everything they make is fire. Including this excessively-hopped Galaxy and Mosaic monster.

    Thanks @Joplamp for the constant stream of Arvon greatness!

    Got done with a bike ride and cleaned the bathroom which was long overdue. Sitting around contemplating the rest of my Saturday and figured this was as good a time as any to crack a beer at the virtual bar. Cheers /

    Seeing you post these Northern Hemispheres this week motivated me to go track down a 6'er yesterday. Haven't had one yet, but thats next up on deck - excited to try!

    I tried taking some enticing shower-beer pictures, but I failed miserably. I dropped my phone, then the beer. My phone still works, fortunately. If you wish to experience a true emotional shower, grab a beer, then put on this song before hopping in. You will find yourself applying shampoo in a rhythmic manner, unlike ever before. This beer will take me into the next chapter of a brilliant Saturday, in 2020.

    Time for a little college football perusal as I take a Saturday to hopefully clean out some older purchases, including maybe a few drain pours... we’ll see.

    Starting with one that will be completely drankened:

    Bare Hands Upful IPA (100% Citra) at the source. Been about 4 years since I’ve been out here. These guys know their hops really well. One of the more underrated breweries in Indiana. This one is juicy, bitter, and clean. Awesome stuff.

    I guess VABA gets an "influencer of the week" badge... after seeing your posts of Xocoveza, I picked up a 6'er yesterday since it landed in my area this last week. Not new to me, but haven't seen it in my stores since February. Just a solid, unique, tried & true great value stout.
