This was decent. More beers should be gin barrel aged, like this!

St. Julian Winery by Gunga-Din Cinnamon Cider

Allan M. is drinking a Gunga-Din Cinnamon Cider by St. Julian Winery

Can't believe their winery store/tap room in Union Pier was selling bomber bottles of this for just $3. This is decent, & nice apple taste.

Purchased at St. Julian Winery

Last my flights. More a typical lemongrass saison that's fine,but doesn't stand out like other beers. I'd love come back, & try more beers!

Bueno? Si, senor! Can taste chocolate and caramel in this, and also toffee and dried fruit flavors. Less of the latter 2, but they're there

For whatever reason, haven't always been wild about nitro beers. This one surprised me, and was actually decent. Sample.

Very surprised I'd never checked this in! To me, it still doesn't stand out much to me. Though I've had worse.....

Dragonmead Microbrewery by Final Absolution

Allan M. is drinking a Final Absolution by Dragonmead Microbrewery

Very nice, like the banana, clove, and candy sugar mix in its flavor. A Michigan only beer, not distributed beyond Michigan sadly.

Cidrerie Dujardin by Dan Armor Cuvée Spéciale Cidre Brut

Allan M. is drinking a Dan Armor Cuvée Spéciale Cidre Brut by Cidrerie Dujardin

Not bad,but I like Cidre Poire better. Also got @Trader Joe's. To better describe taste,it was more apple taste being tad weird vs. dryness
