Mike's Brewery by Flight of the Falcon

Bouffee D. is drinking a Flight of the Falcon by Mike's Brewery at Waikanae

Mike's has lost me in recent years. Initial pineapple nose on this had me hopeful but malt is a bit odd & bitterness a bit too long.

Better this time. Spicy, sweet, yeast notes on nose. Crisp but with back-of-mouth yeast filling things out.

Behemoth Brewing Company by C's Get Degrees

Sweet but subtle stonefruit nose. Simple ale drinking, no fancy hop profile, touch of malt comes in late. Highlight is great mouthfeel.

Good George Brewing by Duck Island w/ Blackberry, Sage Honey

Bouffee D. is drinking a Duck Island w/ Blackberry, Sage Honey by Good George Brewing

Charcoal & coffee. Maybe I'm missing the gene that encodes for blackberry, sage and honey receptors; nice but unremarkable stout for me.
