Narrow Gauge Brewing Company by Brummel

Matt K. is drinking a Brummel by Narrow Gauge Brewing Company at Nucleate Beer Festival

This is solid. Lots of cinnamon in a graham cracker pie crust kind of way. Good vanilla and heavy sweet fruit. I really enjoyed this one.

Brewery Bhavana by Grove

Matt K. is drinking a Grove by Brewery Bhavana at Nucleate Beer Festival

Maltier than I would like to see. It’s decently balanced, but doesn’t really pop in any IPA kind of way.

Bearded Iris Brewing by Homestyle

Matt K. is drinking a Homestyle by Bearded Iris Brewing at Nucleate Beer Festival

VERY bitter. Whoa. No defined hoppiness at all. This one is a bummer.

Bearded Iris Brewing by Catalyst

Matt K. is drinking a Catalyst by Bearded Iris Brewing at Nucleate Beer Festival

Good hoppiness with a kiss of juice. The grainy balance actually works here. Not too malty, but not too green either.

New Image Brewing by Three Halves

Matt K. is drinking a Three Halves by New Image Brewing at Nucleate Beer Festival

Tart, weird, and then a little fruity sweetness late. Grassy and sweet on the finish. Lighter peach and like. Lemongrass dominates

Matt K. is drinking a 3 Fonteinen Framboos Oogst 2017 (season 17|18) Blend No. 16 by Brouwerij 3 Fonteinen at Nucleate Beer Festival

Big mineral gueuze up front with big time raspberry rolling in. Huge tartness and a delightful crisp finish. This is bangin

Collective Arts Brewing by Life in the Clouds

Matt K. is drinking a Life in the Clouds by Collective Arts Brewing at Nucleate Beer Festival

Not bad. Decent hop graininess with a growing malt on the finish

Can

Humble Sea Brewing Company by Gnar-Whal

Matt K. is drinking a Gnar-Whal by Humble Sea Brewing Company at Nucleate Beer Festival

Very grainy and green. This is something I feel would be much better in a month or so.

HOMES Brewery by METAFORM (passionfruit)

Matt K. is drinking a METAFORM (passionfruit) by HOMES Brewery at Nucleate Beer Festival

Great fruitiness, dry finish. This is just what I was hoping for and remember. Solid

Cerebral Brewing by Character Reference

Matt K. is drinking a Character Reference by Cerebral Brewing at Nucleate Beer Festival

Very good Vienna lager. Light sweet maltiness and a crisp and clean back end. Could drink this by the jug

Dancing Gnome by Wishbone

Matt K. is drinking a Wishbone by Dancing Gnome at Nucleate Beer Festival

Clean and light. Not a lot of depth happening here.

Can

The Rare Barrel by Cherry Home, Sour Home

Matt K. is drinking a Cherry Home, Sour Home by The Rare Barrel at Nucleate Beer Festival

Don’t understand why this was a FOMO beer at Nucleate. Good peach and cherry with a hint of cinnamon and a kiss of vanilla. Solid, not great

Masthead Brewing Company by Paper Boy

Matt K. is drinking a Paper Boy by Masthead Brewing Company at Nucleate Beer Festival

Very bitter and pine heavy. This is not what one would expect of a NEIPA. Light leafy hop on the back end

Masthead Brewing Company by Fruit Blood Double Smoothie IPA - Guava and Mango

Matt K. is drinking a Fruit Blood Double Smoothie IPA - Guava and Mango by Masthead Brewing Company at Nucleate Beer Festival

Nice fruitiness to it, but the green hops just don’t do it for me. They take away from the awesomeness that is guava

New Image Brewing by Kiwicumber Jalapeño Dyad

Matt K. is drinking a Kiwicumber Jalapeño Dyad by New Image Brewing at Nucleate Beer Festival

The sign did not say jalapeño in the name. Woof. Smells terrible. Flavor is mostly cucumber and actually quite refreshing.

Can

Horus Aged Ales  by Barrel #59

Matt K. is drinking a Barrel #59 by Horus Aged Ales at Nucleate Beer Festival

Dark and cherry heavy. There is a hint of bourbon to keep the tartness from running away. Great oak balance. This is solid.

Draft

Yazoo Brewing Company by Grisette (Sauvignon Blanc Grapes)

Matt K. is drinking a Grisette (Sauvignon Blanc Grapes) by Yazoo Brewing Company at Nucleate Beer Festival

Funky grape skin. The depth that the grape adds is nice. I like this one over the regular hands down

Bottle

Yazoo Brewing Company by Grisette (Batch 2)

Matt K. is drinking a Grisette (Batch 2) by Yazoo Brewing Company at Nucleate Beer Festival

Funky and clean. Almost comes off a little watery. Not much happening.
