Slipstream (2024) - USA - MAR 15, 2013
On draft at Mug’s Ale House, enjoyed with Brian and Jason. Very nice aroma of flowers on this not-so-Belgian pale ale, It seemed more like a sweet APA to me. A good brew, and glad to see Barrier getting back to their feet.

malrubius (1708) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - DEC 15, 2012
Growler from brewery hurricane salvage. Hazy golden orange with flat head and lace. Fruity bready apricot peach aroma with a hint of soy sauce. Sweet with hints of honey vanilla and lots of peach apricot. Finishes fairly clean with some grassy spicy fruity hops. May have been sitting too long. I like my Belgian pale ales very dry and peppery/spicy. Still very good.
