    This actually tastes excellent. Been ages since I've had a hefeweizen, and this one delivers. More cloves than banana.

    They always sell their beers in the restaurant for take-away. You can only buy them there.

    Last night had that Iron Maiden beer (pretty mediocre), fresh Riverside 44 (soooooooo good, don't even need to buy imports anymore with their beers around), St Ambroise RIS (so good again) and finished with a Riverside 77.

    Why can't it just be on the label? I'm going to be honest - I never buy Feral bottles due to this (except limited releases). Better bet just to find it on tap or visit the brewery.

    That is even more difficult than getting it on the bottle!

    Check the carton as they have a year from bottling on them.
     
  25. danieelol

    danieelol Jun 15, 2010 Australia

    Stamping the date on the label or perforating a part of it to indicate date (like what Sam Adams does) is fine

    Just got back from Belgium, and what else to drink other that the Westy 12 :) Never get tired of this masterpiece. Found a source who has heaps of Westy without going to the monastary, I must be becomming a pro at this stuff !

    I don't think there are many better experiences than sitting back at the Cafe In De Vrede sipping Westies on a hot day at 4 euros each and eating great cheese and meats.

    Also went to the Hopp Museum in Poperinge who had a Trappist beer fest on. It was very interesting and they had heaps of old memorabilia. Found a great restaurant also and enjoyed some awesome food, Great stuff. Roll on 2014 !

    Little Creatures Pale Ale earlier while having lunch with Mum at one of the only bars in town with a decent tap selection. Went well with a chicken parma and chips.

    I recall someone in this thread referring to Dogfish Head Noble Rot as 'pointless'. Cbf looking it up but whoever it was was right. 'Hey, let's make a 9% Belgian ale infused with botrytised grape must and charge $16 for it even though it tastes like a badly skunked macro lager''. Fucking hell.

    I'm in LA on my way to San Francisco/Mexico for my honeymoon and myself and the new Mrs Parrotshake have been drinking fairly well most of today I guess. Lagunitas IPA, GI Matilda, Stone Cali-Belgique and Götterdämmerung, Bruery Mischief, La Folie, Maui Coconut Porter and Oak Aged Oatmeal Yeti, but I saved Noble Rot until last and now I have to go to bed with my mouth tasting like that time I was 16 and someone put their ciggy out in my Carlton Cold and I drank it anyway.

    Went to Feral yesterday breifly,
    Saw Lukie,
    had BFH, v nice, fantapants, pretty nice, rust: not memorable ( hoping this isnt the next bottle relases),
    Razorbakc,' pretty good, the IIPA, was out didnt try the barrique de whatever
    had to chug all of them, as in a hurry, and pissed bogans lauding abbots victory was nauseating, even 2 hipsters fighting in street, in tears..weird
    anyway nice day n all
    I think it would make it easier for punters and staff if you crossed out the unavailable beers on black board,
    rather than writing them on a window nearby, sounded like almost every second punter was asking for a beer that was not available...

    3 for 15 from Vintage Cellars

    Just so refreshing and amazing tasting

    I am massively enjoying wheat beers again, I think my palate was oversaturated with lupulin

    Also had a HORAL's Oude Gueuze Megablend 2011 last night which was extremely delicious accompanying Breaking Bad

    I had a feeling it was you. Man that beer was unpleasant. Checked out Mikkeller Bar last night and tasted a little Prairie Artisan Ales 'Merica, Hanssens Oudbeitje (I don't care if I spelled that right) and Angel's Share. All great beers in their own right but man that bar is in an incongruous location. They closed really early because no-one was there. Lots of homeless folks drinking outside, though. Maybe Mikkel should brew a beer that will make me temporarily immune to being hassled for a smoke. Drank a shot load of Blue Moon tonight at AT&T Park and currently enjoying a Boulevard Tank 7 on my hotel balcony.

    What is your overall view of the place??? Been getting a lot of mixed reviews from peeps I know in the US. You are not the first to mention an interesting location. In SF in December and planning on going but hearing too much of the same stuff. Bad location and expensive as heck. Could easily drop some cash in the sour room though.

    Fullers 1845--------- Really nice English Strong Ale. Like the fruitcake flavors
    Brewboys hoppapotamus----- A little old but still nice. More wooded citrus flavors. Do not think this batch is as good as previous batches.
    In Adelaide for a a few days. Going to the Wheaty tomorrow to drink from the fountain of hoppiness and one other pub that apparently has a Brash/ SKA collaboration.
    Was quite nice to walk into a shop today and see a full range of Fullers beers and some English stuff that does not get as much appreciation as there should be.

    Worth a visit for sure, although I'd been checking the tap list a few days before I got into town and a lot of the shit I'd been keen to try had dried up by the time I got there. The list of sours is mostly some older Cantillon. Bottle list is like 50% Mikkeller, a lot of things I haven't seen in Aus. Beer served at proper temperatures, excellent staff, all that. It's not as cool yet as I think it will be. It's definitely something you have to go out of your way to, though. No other reason to check out that part of town.

    Also with you on the Fullers 1845. That was my favourite beer in the world a few years ago. Currently drinking a Drakes Aroma Coma. It's really good but after a few days on the west coast your palate gets numb to IPAs. I drank 4 pints of Pliny earlier and it was 'OK'. Clearly that's my problem.

    You need a palate reset. Find some good pilsners (i.e. Victory Prima, Firestone walker pivo etc).
