    For me, most of my wants are usually highly regarded beers that I hope to someday try. But I have a handful of beers on my want list that I randomly hope to try regardless of rating or praise. Two for me would be Jackie O's Orange Oak and Hardywood's Virginia Blackberry. Orange Oak just sounds interesting and I love anything Blackberry.

    For you, what's your oddest 'want' and why?

    For a while, it was Hell or High Watermelon. Then I had it.


    Do not want anymore.

    Traded for a Bully Guppy recently, mostly just for fun. I mean, how bad can it really be?

    Ghost Face Killah. Despite the fact that it made me drool, I want more bottles. I thought it had great flavor, but that might be because I think ghost chiles taste great...although they're impossible to eat without crying. Seriously though, I want this beer in multiples.

    Going through my wants, I'd probably say Cigar City's Cucumber Saison. It's different, but not too different. I'm not into trying any beer brewed with beard hair or any weird shit like that.

    Had it recently. At first I said "awesome, really tastes like cucumbers" then I said "hmmm... actually, pickles." Decided it'd be amazing with a hot dog at a ball game.

    My perspective on that one: if you don't expect beer, it's actually pretty good on a hot day. It's a watermelony refreshing something or another... not very beery in flavor at all. We actually bought it more than once. I admit it!

    I'm not going to lie, I love it! I went through a case myselft over the summer. Now that I'm into hoppier beers I'm scared I won't like it.

    Mine would be the cucumber saison by Cigar City.

    I recently discovered that speedway stout had a coconut vanilla version.
    Actually, I really just want a super-coconuty beer. Most coconut beers have only a tiny hint of coconut flavor. I want something intense.

    Really, pickles? I thought it tasted as if they brewed a light saison using cucumber infused water.

    I'm in clinical mental health, so I wanted to track down Pavlov's Russian Imperial Stout. Thanks to some kind Portland BAs, I was able to track down two bottles and a growler of different barrel treatments a few years ago. I'm hanging on to the 2008 port barrel aged version for a graduation celebration.

    Also came across Freudian Slip while traveling back east. I wanted both simply for the names, but neither disappointed.

    Still trying to track down Phenomenology of Spirit, Conscious Sedaison, Coopersmith's Existential Porter, and something from Three Needs Brewing (or swag). I realize, too, that some are long gone.

    Maybe Sink the Bismark just because it is "Sink the Bismark"! But it is soooooooo expensive.

    Yeah man. thats the ONLY founders beer that doesnt make it to KY. I think its coming out as a seasonal or something so I think we will see it this year. I have had it once and its good, but very sessionable.

    ZIMA. I just remember those weird commercials from when I was a kid, and how cool I thought a clear "beer" was even though I'd never had an beer at all.

    But seriously, if anyone has some still hanging around, consider me ISO!
