I dunno man—once it gets warmer you can kinda taste hints of the old dough and dank, but just feels faded. Lovely thin straw body, lacy, good mouthfeel, just the right amount of fading bitter. Bottled 01/17/19—maybe a little old?

Light, punchy, pungent fruit, a little clay-like. Crisp, sharp finish. Might be a little strongly flavored for the body, but quite tropical and unique.Earned the Riding Steady (Level 16) badge! Earned the For the Can (Level 22) badge!
This is a 2014 (maybe 2013?) bottle and this was an awesome idea. Mellowed Brett with sharp leathery fruits—orange and wild blueberry. A little flatly mucky but on the whole rad. Baffled that I haven’t checked this in before! Toned down from what I recallEarned the Cheers to Independent U.S. Craft Breweries (Level 22) badge! Earned the New Brew Thursday (Level 23) badge!
Tart, sweet start, mellows into a rich rosy, fruitiness—cherry, blackcurrant, rhubarb, and a hunt of pipe smoke. Well put together but a little fierce—seems like it’d age very well.

Dark, sweet but not cloying, rich but not thick. Prune, brown sugar, dark cherry, tangy tingle of booze. Very strong, not heavy. An abiding mellowness, slightly musty. That’s a motherfucking beer, motherfucker.

It’s…thick. Hazy to opaque even by hefe standards. Definitely getting the orange and strawberry purée. Surprisingly bitter finish—pretty beefy little thing, as far as the style goes. Not sure it’d be my go-to for the beach, but it’s worth a taste.Earned the Middle of the Road (Level 65) badge! Earned the Draft City (Level 40) badge!
Not getting a lot of Mosaic or fruit. There’s an intriguing sweetness but it’s mostly an over-sappy and faded, diluted bitter still managing to overpower a relatively light malt body.
