Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Sweet and fruity nose, apples, a small tangy sourness, and some glue. Dark amber brown color. Sweet malty initial, some tropical fruit notes, apples. Peaks in late mid palate and then fades. Thin-medium body. Unusual nose -- almost seems fortified with some kind of fruit liqueur.
Draft pour at Brouwers, during their sour fest. Pours a clear orange color with a lasting fizz head. Candy sweet peach and grapefruit like aroma. Flavor is sweet peach and orange fruit. Very candy though. Sugary sweet and a transitioning sour finish. Unique, and a very fun try.

Bottle shared at Jay’s music&beer mixing bash. Interesting one, not very lambic-like though, yellow peach is very present but more in a dried fruit or jam way, caramel malt base, notes of candy, finishes quite sweet yet not cloying. Not bad, not great, fairly original peach brew.

Draft pour pint at Bob’s in East Wenatchee. From notes. Headed to the brewery as my next stop at this point, but I decided I wanted to know how it felt to be the top rater of a brewery I have never been to. Is that rare? Research time. Pours a shiny golden color with almost no head. Fruity aroma. Flavor is crisp and sweet. Apple, honey, and grains. Refreshing cool finish. Simple to drink blonde. A little sweet, but it seems to work well here.

750 ml bottle. Pours a deep clear gold with very little head. Aromas of wood, barnyard, and citrus. Flavor of tart green apples, green grapes and lemon juice, with an interesting fruitiness (Seabuckthorn?). Souurrr. Neat.

Bottle at home. Black pour with fine beige head. Nose is cocoa and some licorice. Tastes of milk chocolate, roasted malt, bitter espresso, some herbal notes, light licorice. Hides alcohol well. Nice creamy yet bitter palate. I’ve had several variants glad to have the OG.

Bottle shared at Jay’s music&beer mixing bash. Great stuff, tons of chocolate and coffee with a pleasat biscuit/cookie edge, dangerously smooth for the abv, fairly dry finish with a warming edge. The fact I don’t really dig old ales makes it even more of a special brew, great job!

This is the best Samuel Adams IPA I’ve had, and I actually like Samuel Adams more than not. This beer pours a hazy yellow, the head is average and it hangs around for a while. The aroma is grapefruit, and the flavor is grapefruit, too. Which is good, if you like grapefruit, and I do. The finish of the flavor is bitter and bright.

Poured from the bomber, burnt orange with almost no head. Spicy, creamy, a little boozy, really smooth and different.

Appearance: clear chestnut-tinted amber-brown with one fat finger of fluffy light beige head diminishing gradually to a thick cap, moderate lacing. (3/5) Aroma: coffee, citrus, earthy, light tropical fruit. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate astringent bitter. (7/10) Medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry moderate bitter and coffee finish. (3/5) I was initially a little unimpressed by this: the coffee started out somewhat weak, and the nose was dominated by an almost vegetal earthiness. However, as it warmed, the coffee really moved to the forefront, with a citrus hop presence not far behind. I’m still not completely sold on coffee IPAs, but this is probably the best interpretation of that particular style I’ve encountered so far. (13/20)

Bottle shared at Jay’s music&beer mixing bash. What a great treasure. Still in very good shape, drinks like cherry wine with a nice oak edge, more dark fruits, really deep and complex with a lovely dry finish. Truely outstanding and unique brew!
