    Reviews:

    Nice spiced blonde. Taste of lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, cracker, bread, light honey, coriander, herbal, grass, light pepper and some yeast earthiness. Light earthy/spicy bitterness on the finish with a touch of citrus peel tang. Smooth, crisp, and dry finish. Well balanced flavors. Pleasant and tasty.

    Awesome Export Stout! Big flavors of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, roasted malt, toasted oats, dark bread, light char, light licorice, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Nice roasted coffee bitterness on the finish. Smooth, moderately creamy, and slightly sticky mouthfeel. Loaded with huge roasted flavors. This was delicious.

    Pretty good maibock. Taste of caramel, toast, biscuit, brown sugar, toffee, and nutty malts; with a light-moderate amount of raisin, plum, and apple fruits with some earthy hop notes. Light earthy bitterness on the finish. Very robust on malt flavors with no cloying sweetness. Pretty tasty, signs of age are definitely there, but it held up pretty well.

    Drinking this thing right now.
    Honestly, I've been let down by my local brewery in recent releases but this is not one of them.
    Excellent cocoa and cinnamon flavors and I really don't get too much of the peppers at first taste. They kind of creep up on you as you progress through the beer. Very complex, a must for those who like something a little sweeter at times.


    Good night BA; wake up to a great Wednesday tomorrow

    PS: Narwhal cap in the background is a pleasant reminder of the prior weekend :wink:

    Because I really could drink this by myself. But, at this hour, I probably shouldn't.

    Missed out on the most recent batch of Citra, I've been dying to try it...I knew I should have bought it a few weeks ago when I saw it at my store...But, this Mosaic is really nice!

    Drinking up some free bees I got from a friend who quit drinking. Some spring and summer stuff, seems like a day to start killing these off.

    Day 4 of Oktoberfest calls for my 4th new offering of the style of beer that shares it's name. Tonight's choice
    [​IMG]
    Definitely an American take on an Oktoberfest. Has the classic toasted malt, toffee sweetness, brown bread crust aromas and flavors but features a very big floral and hoppy spice presence as well. Medium bodied, crisp, nice carbonation which makes the flavors pop. This is probably the most hops I have encountered in an Oktoberfest but it works well.
    Prost!

    Fresh cans are awesome

    Super tasty, SN 6 packs are always worthwhile buys.
    [​IMG]

    For a session stout, this has plenty of great flavor. I am going to have to buy more since I am basically on a session kick all year(and barely any real session stouts exist). Love the robust coffee flavor.

    Great witbier as always.

    So yeah, Westbrook Gose is not distributed here in Michigan, but this Anderson Valley beer is a very nice replacement. Really lov'in this beer! The other one is not in my glass, but was a nice little find at a local bottle shop around me. 2011 vintage even! Happy man I am! :slight_smile:
    Cheers to the late night crowd!

    Hey, if Session is your thing, you gotta try this Anderson Valley Gose that I picked up in Grandville today. If you ever tried Westbrook's Gose, this rivals it to me and it's 4.2%. So good!

    This beer totally lives up to the hype. PtE haters have issues.

    As I've said in the past, it's the Lord's beer. Whoever sent that to you is doing the Lord's work.

    Freshness can be a detractor. I know I was always more impressed with Blind Pig for the longest time until I lucked into some 2 week old PtE

    The PtE I drank tonight was from the end of June. :grimacing:

    It tasted *almost* perfect.

    I cleaned out the garage fridge and found a few late June Plinys in there. I've got one more late June Pliny left and then the oldest Pliny I have is late August. All Plinys will be drank by the end of the month or first week of October, and I've reserved a special place for the Lord's work in the door where they won't get buried in all the other stuff.
