Lonerider Shotgun Betty Hefeweizen 3.2
Pours a hazy golden orange from the can with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of German yeast esters and wheat. Taste follows, definitely to style, a little thin though. Solid for what it is.

Lonerider Tres Vaqueros 4
New batch apparently, and the booze is more balanced this time. Pours a hazy golden yellow on tap with thin ring of bubbly white head. Aroma of vanilla oaky barrel over mild Belgian esters, fruit, and grain. Taste follows, a subtle hint of orange under the bourbon, banana spice esters, biscuit malt booziness. I really like the balance here, mild esters, mild barrel, minimal booze, an enjoyable tripel.

Single 12 oz can from SAMs. A little medicinal especially on the finish. Was definitely sold on the name. The hop profile is not my preferred though. Good body. A littl sweet.

Lonerider Shotgun Betty Hefeweizen 3.4
Can, cloudy golden brown with a thin head, yeasty and lightly banana nose. Initially soft and faintly milky on the palate, then turning a little crisper as a moderate hoppy bitterness cuts in. Sweet fruity undertones linger beneath the yeasty body with its hoppy edges. Recognisably a Hefe, but with a touch of pale ale about it, yet not so strongly flavoured as many of the Hopfenweisse.

Lonerider Sweet Josie 3.7
Draft. Roasty toast aroma. Flavors are of mocha kissed by orange, with a mild suggestion of honey and coffee. The little bits of orange and honey sweetness add wonderful complexity.

Lonerider Sweet Josie 3.5
Grabbed a 6-pack of this while in the Asheville area over the holidays. This reminded me somewhat of our Maduro brown by Cigar City here in FL. Malt is a little more roastier and heavier on the chocolate. Almost like a malta. Semi-creamy texture. I would look out for this one again.

Lonerider Raleigh Beer Week Belgian Strong 1.9
Canít say I liked it. It resembles the style, but feels very thin for something that is called a strong, dark ale. Tastes boozy, but isnít particularly strong in any other flavors. A bit medicinal and flat, hints of butterscotch. Almost no bitterneess. Iíve liked other things from lonerider, especially their seasonals, but this one was a dud for me.

Lonerider Brew It Forward Schwarzbier 3.6
Dark brown pour with a large tan head. The aroma is classic schwarzbier with roasted malt and a hint of chocolate. The flavor is fairly dry with some cocoa, roasted malt, burnt grain and a bit of cream. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. This one has held up well.

Lonerider Cowboy in Black 3.8
Bottle shared @ final old style THT. Opaque black color, medium to full sized beige to light brown head. Aroma is malts, hops, dark malts mixed with hops perfectly. Taste malts, hops, roast, bitter. Average to medium body and carbonation. Lovely, although I like the aroma better than the flavor and I would have liked it to be a little more viscose. Nevertheless, a pretty beer.

Lonerider The Hops You Rode In On 3.2
Draught at Vancouver Craft Beer Week 2015
Hazy golden color. Aroma of cereals. The mouthfeel is smooth but too weak, the malt flavor is light, with traces of butter, and there is not much to say about the hops.
Just a light Pale Ale. Very simple.

Lonerider Hoppy Ki Yay 3.3
Can. Muted orange color with a rollicking head. The aroma is similar to sweet biscuits. The flavor is interestingly malty, but has the requisite fruity-hoppy flourish to call itself an IPA I guess. (#6079, 12/18/2015)
