solidfunk (5173) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Getting my Missouri heritage fix today. I’d have liked to see a better beer from these guys for something titled grand cru but then that is often the case with breweries. A case of trying too hard perhaps. Pours blonde with good head and lacing. Light florals and a hint of citrus. Light tangy sweet finish. Tap at scion.

EithCubes (5215) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 18, 2014
750mL bottle, just capped, Bottled with love on 111412, drunk here on 061814, tiny bit of a gusher. Nose sweet with wheat, citrus, malt, vanilla; airy with very jammy fruit and heavily phenolic Belgian yeast, has some spicy Saison notes and man that fruit is really sticky, isn’t it? It’s really cranked, like this was fermented in the trunk of somebody’s car. Pours Clear golden with a little less effervescence than expected, a dense and foamy off-white head. Taste is sharp, tart with semi-sweetness, a ton of alcoholic heat (aggressive, some burn that really lasts, but not off-putting), low bitterness in a slightly oily, watery-light body. Malt is a bit thin, this sucker really leans heavy on the esters and especially phenols, airy with a bit of yeast but obviously filtered. The fruit and citrus/vanilla are still there, hops minimized, rounded spice, but everything takes a back seat to the alcohol/heat and jammy/nail polish/tart yeast products. Strap yourself in!

EtTuCthulhu (1356) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAY 22, 2014
The appearance of this beer is an opaque dark golden color with a small white head and chunks of yeast that sink to the bottom, and the aroma blends Belgian yeast, hay malts, sour fruit, alcohol, and a hint of white pepper. The taste is mildly sour on the front end but mellows out to include a slight sweetness and a touch of umami towards the tail end; the palate is great due to the medium-full body, slick and thick texture, and soft carbonation, andt the astringent finish due to the slight alcohol rounds out the sipping experience.
