    Bozeman Brewing Co. -- Vieux Bois Lambic Inspired w/Plum 2020 (lambic - fruit)

    [​IMG]

    4.1/5 rDev 0%
    look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

    Partially cloudy, apricot orange colored body; very lively carbonation; thin head only partially covering the beer, more so as the beer warms. Sour smell with a bit of horse blanket; fruity. Very sour taste upfront; earthy woodiness around the edges; more cherry like than plum; tart lime. Medium-heavy body; lively coarseness on the palate; sweet overall but with some dryness in the middle of the taste.

    This is one wild wild ale! The bottle description states it is lambic inspired, and the beer's characteristics certainly reflect a fruit lambic profile. This is a fine beer.

    Poured at 60° F.



    ...also got a book in the mail from @Ocalafox that should be a good read...

    Works over finally. Why do we put up with this bullshit exploitative system of glorified slavery? We only get 75 years if we're lucky. I'm not spending half of it doing shit i hate for a pittance. Gonna go live in the woods or something.

    Finishing my stash of this, it’s truly delicious - nicely bitter, with some berry flavors to accompany the pine that are magnificent. Absolutely love it.

    Its house baked bread, fried with cheddar in the bread. They grind their own brisket, chuck blend and razor thin onions and sauce. Its more of a melt, but ah same thing in my book :slight_smile:

    Went grocery shopping with my wife and planned on reviewing a few beers when we got home from a sick box that @SawDog505 blessed my porch with. I also didn't expect this annual release to be on the shelf this early in the week at the store. Plans have been temporarily diverted ... SO look forward to this release every year!

    [​IMG] Tonight's Blind Battle Beer Tasting Lineup: (All 3 out of 3 pairs correctly identified blind)

    1) Golden Road Mango Cart Wheat (4.0%):
    Inspired by the fruit vendors in LA, this mango wheat with Bravo hops that has smooth flavors of mango with a yeasty wheat body.
    versus
    2) Lift Bridge Mango Blonde (4.6%): A mango blonde ale from Minnesota that has smooth flavors of peach, mango, tropical fruit and tea above a golden malt profile

    3) Great Lakes’ Dortmunder Gold (5.8%): A European Export beer from Ohio that has strong lemonflower, earthy honey and bread malts.
    versus
    4) Bent Paddle’s Classic Cream (5.0%): A cream ale from Minnesota that has smooth flavors of cream with some earthy honey and lemonflower notes to give it a somewhat German flavor.

    5) Lagunitas IPA (6.2%): An IPA from California that has flavors of earthy stonefruit, peach, with some pear, grape, and gooseberry notes. Relatively light with a balanced bitterness.
    versus
    6) Lagunitas Stereohopic V2 IPA (7.2%): An IPA from California brewed with Elixir and loral hops to give it a strong orange, red grapefruit, and tropical pineapple flavor. Leans sweet.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Winners:
    1) Golden Road Mango Cart:
    This was an excellent wheat beer and much better than I expected. Nice mango, but a fantastic wheat and yeast body keep it dry and drinkable. Not a mango fan, but this was a nice wheat beer.

    3) Great Lakes' Dortmunder Gold: This is one of the best lagers with an excellent balance of citrus and flowery hops with smooth and flavorful malts. Compared these two because I mislabeled them blind last time. Didn't make the same mistake again.

    6) Lagunitas' Stereohopic V2 IPA: This new release from Lagunitas has nice and juicy flavors. I preferred V1 better, but in 2021 I think this drinks slightly more robust and flavorful than their original flagship IPA.

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Have you tried Golden Road Mango Cart Wheat?
    Do you think Dortmunder Gold is a good lager?
    What did you think of Lagunitas Stereohopic Volume 2 with Loral and Elixir?

    We got that into the liquor store a couple weeks back. We had a sample, for science, and it was amazing. I do have a bottle that's aged, from a former member of this site, and can't wait to try it.

    Thicc Hydra from Mortalis Brewing Company, LLC, in Avon, NY. One of the weirder beers I have tried. Billed as a "fruited sour ale brewed with natural flavors," I am picking up unusually strong roast coffee and sweet maple on the nose and a strong maple aftertaste, despite a predominantly berry look and flavor. Seems Chimera would have been a better name than Hydra, Thicc or no. Basically a weird, wild ale. Always thought Easy Rider movie was beautifully filmed but otherwise outrageously overrated, so seemed this musical accompaniment seemed remarkably appropriate:



    Stay Safe, Taste Matters, and Sláinte!

    Relic is so under the radar. They make great doubles. @SawDog505 this brewery is right up your ally. This Triple with Denali hops is very good. Highly drinkable for 10%.[​IMG]

    I took extra blood pressure meds tonight
    Henri is hiding under a chair
    Someone said yesterday I think it was @tasterschoice62 that this was Tree House’s best beer, that’s hard to argue with.
    Maybe some Wilco will help


    We’ve been to literally a 100 plus concerts over the years and I’d have to put the one we saw Wilco at a couple of years ago in the top 5.

    [​IMG] Copied from review:
    Picked this up in a discounted mixed 4 pack -
    Couldn’t beat the price to be honest and bought it cold :slight_smile:
    Poured a creamy lemon with a big head and huge lacing - smell was tropical yet smelled more like a grapefruit to me , so maybe a little zesty -
    Great beer overall , especially for what I paid -
    Recommended !
    CHEERS !!
