Lagunitas Brewing Company by Night Time Ale

Stephen S. is drinking a Night Time Ale by Lagunitas Brewing Company

Not rating since this bottle is likely past its prime. Citrus from cascade and earthy spice from Rye. Underwhelming for this bottle.

Prairie Artisan Ales by Funky Gold Mosaic

After getting past the explosion released upon cap removal, this is a great beer. Orange and lemon zest, grass, earthiness, and funk.

Purchased at Whole Foods Market

Prairie Artisan Ales by Barrel Aged Bible Belt

High viscosity, chocolate/barrel char compete up front, a little dark fruit mid way, and a peppery spice finish. Hot, 6 months+ would help.

Great barrel presence. Still a lot of heat, but settling down. Another 1-2 years should do this well.
