A K. is drinking a Geuze Mariage Parfait (2012) by Brouwerij Boon

Plenty of Fantôme-esque funk with a hint of musky white grape and green apples. Not as bone dry as Cantillon, 3F et al but still refreshing.

Founders Brewing Co. by Kentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS)

A K. is drinking a Kentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS) by Founders Brewing Co.

Tons of chocolate and bourbon but coffee slightly muted. Medium full, oily mouthfeel. Not as overrated or boozy as I expected. Good stuff.

A K. is drinking a Schneider Weisse Unser Aventinus (TAP6) (2012) by Schneider Weisse G. Schneider & Sohn

Banana, clove, slightly tart red berries (maybe some oxidation from extensive ageing?). Smooth, creamy, almost vinous. ABV hidden. Winner.

Spencer Brewery by Spencer Trappist Ale

A K. is drinking a Spencer Trappist Ale by Spencer Brewery

Classic Belgian yeast fruity esters. Overripe bananas, clove, drupes. Peppery note from the hops, touch of vanilla on the finish. Excellent.

Siren Craft Brew by Vanilla Weisse

A K. is drinking a Vanilla Weisse by Siren Craft Brew

Vanilla balances out sourness masterfully. A bit herbaceous, peppery and creamy. Liquid sour ice cream. One of the better British Berliners.

Always a pleasure. Fleshy pink grapefruit and lemon sherbert nose, medium body from wheat + peachy flavour. Go to APA when fresh.

Mix of granny smith apples, orange liquor and bourbon nose. Balanced sweetness and acidity. 7.2% hidden. Solid but prefer fruited Berliners.

Buxton Brewery by Rain Shadow (2015)

A K. is drinking a Rain Shadow (2015) by Buxton Brewery

Roasted malts balanced perfectly by a sugar coated nutty sweetness. Chocolate, coffee, toffee, vanilla notes without any adjuncts. Banging.

Buxton Brewery by Guatemalan Coffee Extra Porter

Creamy coffee and mocha nose, dark chocolate, bitter coffee taste, lingering betterness. Light mouthfeel. ABV hidden. Not my style though.

Light tangerine + lime, bready malt aroma. Grapefruit pith and resinous pine flavour. Light mouthfeel. No juice bomb despite marketing.

Vocation by Heart & Soul

Mango, sweet citrus, slightly grassy nose. West Coast, bitter grapefruit flavour. Medium mouthfeel from the wheat. Decent.

Renaissance Brewing Company by Collision Course

A K. is drinking a Collision Course by Renaissance Brewing Company

Floral nose (Mosaic?). Biscuity malt, hints of white grape (Nelson?). Would love to try a fresher bottle as this one is probably a bit old.
