My last, and it should be year round since its one of the best.
This was refreshingly delicious! Aromas and flavors of lightly tart grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, cracker, bread, and light herbal/grassy hop notes. Light earthy bitterness and fruit tartness; with a very smooth and crisp finish with a touch of lingering acidity. Highly flavorful with good balance between the lager and grapefruit juice flavors. Great bitter/tart/sweetness balance. I may very well buy this again. Really excellent for the style! The only other radler I've had was the Schofferhoffer, and that was a bit bland compared to this. This tasted much more vibrant.
Very good IPA. Aromas were muted but nice. Aromas and flavors of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, and pine; with some light honey/toasted bready malt and floral/grassy hop earthiness. Good sized pine/citrus rind bitter finish; with a very resinous/sticky mouthfeel with some slight creaminess. Lingering hop oils on the palate for a while, but they don't become astringent at all as you finish the glass. Another one for the sticky pine fans; lots of nice overall hop complexity going on; strong on bitterness but not cloying. Really enjoyable.
Thankfully this is supposed to be infected . This was just really great overall. Aromas and flavors of big tart cherry, cranberry, green apple, lemon, red grape, plum, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, toasted oak, vanilla, bourbon, light red wine vinegar/leather, and light musty funk. Nice tart/acidic finish with some oak/bourbon spiciness. Very smooth and moderately acidic finish; with great balance of acidity/sweetness. Very smooth. Really impressive, all around great standard Flanders red complexity and balance of flavors. You get a very noticeable character from the bourbon barrels you would not see in a genuine example; but it doesn't overtake the classic flavors overall. Really excellent!
The newest Prairie has to offer! BRETT C. ALE!!!
The MLB Alstar Game and a Mocha.
Cheers. I only spent about 2 hours in the heat and it was brutal.
I've really gotten to the point that I seriously look forward to your reviews. I'm totally with you on Steigl Radler VS Schofferhoffer!
Dude is on BA-fire...on top of all that is (and damn, I am gone a few days and we have a name/avatar shift...I have some catchin up to do)
drinkin this now, lest I violate my sacred oath re; posts...
another post to come shortly...with "excursion" references....(just rolled in from Lake Tahoe...regrouping)
missed this site...thanks for the welcome back @MUTINY
Here is a case where expectations can color an impression, at least initially. My first few sips of this (Off Color Brewing - Troublesome) were a bit of a surprise. Based on the style, and the nose, I was expecting much more of a sour/tart profile. It just wasn't there. The more I drink of it, the more I like it, and the more I detect a very subtle tartness. An interesting interpretation of a style that I have only had a few of, and this is a bit of a departure. Although, based on the description of their approach, I don't think they were trying to nail a typical Gose.
A nice pour to go with my bottle, yes please!
Beachwood kills it again
5.99 for Prairie Bomb at my place! And that is FULL markup! I am in Kansas though...so the journey from Tulsa for these cases is not far. I assume that the cost goes up the further the distro.
Anderson Valley: The Kimmie, The Yink and The Holy Gose
Such a great gose.
That BA Speedway release yesterday got me in the mood for another Alesmith brew.

Awesome 4 days in Lake Tahoe with family (hiking/kayaking/drinking/BBQ/board games/chilling/being)...missed this site, as always
Drank well, as usual (Boulevard Impy Coffee Stout, Anderson Valley Gose, beautiful "Dark Ages" sour at Lake Tahoe Brewing Co, Hoptimum, Bigfoot, etc...and finally, this most tasty, and oft-cited on BA site, offering....)
love it....love it...(not as much as G-fruit Sculpin, but damn good....)
good to be back...great to drink great beer...esp. sharing time with BA's on site

Whew! I made it. Hey Guys and Girls, tonight's pairing includes Rassolnik soup, meat sticks, and crackers along with a Jai Alai!!!!
Victory DirtWolf. It's been a really long time since I've had this. I was at the store and I saw the last 4 pack of this hiding toward the back of the shelf. I checked to make sure it was fresh and grabbed it. It's every bit as good as I remembered!
I totally forgot about Madness. 1983 the first time I saw MTV and Madness Our House was always in rotation. Great band
Ever seen The Young Ones? Awesome, surreal comedy show. One episode featured Madness as the guest band...after I saw that, I was hooked for life!
I remember when MTV was so new they had about 4 videos and 2 commercials repeating in tight rotation.
Getting here a little late
Just opened up a little beer called Heady Topper
Just chilling with some Sturgil

Such great soup!!! Pickles, potatoes, barley, shredded boiled eggs, pork, seasoning, and probably some stuff I don't know since it was made for me.
Hey... Don't watch that, watch this!
A good night of drinking:
Almost sounds like a stew! I'm officially on a mission to find some!
Loved the Young ones!!! Wish it would come back on TV
Re: your take on Citrusinensis. I find it interesting that many of us immediately compare this to GF Sculpin. That was my first mental comparison too. I guess there are enough similarities that they beg the comparison, but they are both good in their own right, in somewhat different ways. I like them both with a bit of an edge going to Citrusinensis. Alas, it won't matter soon because it will be going away shortly...I just shed a tear.
I'm too busy watching Nosin' Aroun'
