    First time with this, and it's a 2012 vintage. Unbelievable! I have no idea what this tastes like fresh, but it's incredible with a couple of years on it. It's up there with the best coffee stouts!

    Kudos on the glass! I want one, but can never seem to pull the trigger on ordering one haha.

    That is seriously one of the sweetest beer labels on a can/bottle I've ever seen.

    2nd that. Was introduced to grappa for the first time on a trip to Germany with my wife by her friends who live in Germany (way before kids...when we had money!! :confused:), mixing a lot of awesome German beer with that stuff made for a really rough following day. Learned my lesson, never mixing the two again!!

    WOW, this place is dead tonight, it seems.

    Anyway, on to a Just Outstanding. While we're on the subject of Just Outstandings, I've got 11 of them coming in the mail tomorrow. I'm a whore for Just Outstanding.

    Homebrew club tonight, had a bunch of samples of various styles as usual. Got way more brewing to do soon. I need to make a barleywine on bourbon oak and a lager at minimum in the next month. I need to buy or make a stir plate soon. Damn lagers need twice as many cells.

    Reviews:

    Damn nice Pilsener! This is brewed with NZ Pacifica and Motueka hops. Well carbonated with a fantastic head retention and appearance. Taste of lemon, lime, grapefruit, orange zest, cracker, bread, herbal, floral, grass, light pine, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light pine/grassy bitterness on the finish. Well balanced and crisp finish that is slightly sticky. Very clean with no lager esters noticeable at all. Really impressive.

    Very good White IPA. People who are pouring a clear white IPA, witbier, or wheat style in general are doing it wrong. Yeast swirled in the glass every time. Very nice lasting head and lacing around the glass. Taste of lemon, tangerine, orange peel, coriander, pear, clove, pepper, wheat, bread, herbal, grass, pine, and herbal/yeast earthiness. Fair amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness and yeast spice on the finish. Well balanced yeast, spice, hop, and malt flavors. Very smooth and crisp finish that is fairly creamy/sticky from the wheat and hops. Nicely enjoyable. I've had better white IPAs, but I will certainly enjoy this 6 pack thoroughly. Very tasty

    Another excellent Berlier Weisse. I loved the normal edition. Love this even more. Taste of big sour green apple, blueberry, blackberry, lemon, lime, hay, straw, grass, white wine, white vinegar, musty funk, wheat, light leather, and yeasty earthiness. Great punch of sourness and acidity on the finish; with a good balance of light malt/fruit sweetness and a crisp finish. No cloying tartness at all. Great beer as expected. Love the normal one, and the fruit aged edition adds an additional layer of complexity. New Holland is seriously my go-to underrated brewer by far. But who cares what everyone else thinks anyways.

    'Always a privilege to spend some cyber time with you geeks because I'm always learning about new beers that I've never tried before (and would like to). I raise my glass to ya'all and hope everyone had a great Tuesday. (And watching some baseball right now...)

    Finished off the night with the Big Swell. Hoping for something more hoppy and bitter, this was kinda weak, like the Royal performance tonight.

    Kicking back with a few of these after work and the hawks getting their 1st shut out the year with our back up goalie!

    this is one hazy brew and is really hoppy for a wheat. Pretty much its like one step away from being fff's gumballhead, just not as hoppy. Perfect substitute I would say since the place by me only gets 1 case of gumballhead like every 2 weeks and its sold out by 8:05am. I dont plan on camping out every other thursday so looks like im buying this for now on like i have been. The 6 pack carrier is pretty awesome too!
