    I like this batch best since the bigger brewery. I'd say they have the Julius scaled up imho.

    Not my sort of beer, but I thought it was okay.

    Great hoppy blonde ale. Bright flavors of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, and piney hops with balanced crackery malt and floral/grassy hop earthiness. Balanced bitterness; with a crisp finish and some hop stickiness. One of the best I’ve had.

    My favorite cream ale. Crackery/toasty/nutty malts with restrained yeast fruitiness; and some light caramel/vanilla sweetness with balanced herbal hop flavor. Not totally traditional to style as far as the recipe, but it still genuinely tastes like a cream ale all around.

    Still loving this year’s batch. Dank peach, mango, pineapple, lemon peel, and grapefruit hops with a big resin/piney bitterness and a crisp/sticky finish. Minimal malt presence, but a light amount of cracker/breadiness is present and gives a sufficient balance to the resinous bitter hop finish. Simcoe and summit hop combo. Really can’t go wrong with most hop combos that involve simcoe though.

    Always excellent Belgian IPA. Big grapefruit, lemon, orange peel, and pine; with balanced banana, clove, light bubblegum, and peppery yeast flavors with a sticky bitter hop finish. Great hop and yeast balance overall and a very crisp finish with minimal malt presence, but not dry either. As far as price and availability now in six packs year round; I could easily place this as my go-to Belgian IPA in my regular beer drinker rotation. Delicious.

    My go-to gose. Big tart lemon/lime/green apple fruits with balanced coriander spice, and crackery wheat malts with a crisp acidic/saline finish. I honestly have a hard time deciding between the blood orange and this; but they are both on my fridge rotation anyways. I bought up the last of the Kirsch gose I could find as well, really hope Victory brings that back next year.

    Agree completely re: 128 and Blood Orange - both are outstanding Gose

    We just had a going away party for my roommate, so my fridge is filled with Goose Island Summer Ale and IPA, along with Schlafly Kolsch, Boulevard's The Calling IPA and Pale Ale, and Mother's Doozy.

    Finished watching Pruncess Bride because the GF had never seen it :grimacing::astonished:. I saw that it is almost 30 years old, so older than some of you BAs-might not be as surprising to you guys. Anyhow, fiddling with the picture editor with this one. Boy cat wondering what the big deal is, but he can't see the label (GF went with Victory Kirch Gose).

    Hmm, have this in fridge. Passed on it the first time, but friend mentioned enjoying it. Might be curious enough now to move that up in list for tomorrow's NBS-good or bad.

    Country Boy's Cougar Bait. Pretty enjoyable for a blonde ale.

    You've started WBAYDN two days in a row from Washington State? Have you found some kind of wormhole under Mount Shuksan or something?

    I know I always liked this beer, I don't know if it's just me, but this tastes phenomenal right now. Just perfect in this weather, and considering it already feels like it should be dinnertime because of all the shit I've done this morning, this IS the perfect beer right now. Cheers!

    Have some guys working on the house today, so just hanging around. Thankfully, the weather held out.

    This Blackbeard's is still on the shelf, so I keep buying it. Good, quality beer at a good price.

    Yes, now she will at least understand why I said the thing she's not laughing at when I quote the movie. Most often it's "I don't think that word means what you think it means."

    Anyhow, all you BAs, "have fun storming the castle" (would work better on a Monday post, methinks).

    Saturday in the park, celebrating my niece's 3rd birthday. Have heard Leinie Grapefruit is the best of the shandys, I kind of agree. Highly recommended as a mower beer
