Indeed Derailed: Blueberry Kettel Sour Ale
ABR 2016. Orange color, white head. There is a yeast character, making it a little tart and dry. I get some berry, but it is light and I canít pick out blueberry specifically. Fruit flavor is not as strong as some of their other beers, but the sour flavor is ok.

Indeed Wooden Soul #3: Cherry Sour Ale
ABR 2016. One of the best beers of the festival, in addition to their Strawberry Fields. Pink color, good carbonation. Cherry in the aroma and the flavor. Lightly sour, some sweetness and a lot of cherry flavor. Excellent.

Indeed Whiskey Queen Imperial Stout
ABR 2016. Black beer. Khaki colored head. Carbonation is good. Aroma of an imperial stout, a little out, but I am not getting whiskey at all. Some sugar, but the dry character with coffee and heavily roasted grain takes over. A little soy sauce. it isnít sour like an English imperial stout.

Indeed Derailed IPA
10 oz. pour, on tap at the breweryís taproom in Nordeast Minneapolis, Minnesota. Consumed on 9-9-16. Pours a bright bronze to light amber. Clear. Small to moderate amount of off-white head. Looks good. I like the brightness and light shade of head. Pleasant, floral aroma. Modern hops. Fairly malty in smell for an IPA. Nice, piney, citric, floral flavor. Delicate taste yet with a dry, piney hops bite in the finish. Pretty malty (caramel, fruit-juicy) but not in a way that is often so problematic with more poorly made IPAs. Soapy; Pine Sol flavor. Dry, piney, citric aftertaste. Lively and frothy. Light to medium body, lighter than I expected. Well put together beer. A pleasant, refreshing, likable IPA. Iím impressed. Not my favorite set of flavors in an IPA (I donít need delicate, floral, fruity, and malty) but well enough done that I canít complain.

Howler from the source, split with bananabi11. Copper orange pour with a white head. Aroma has sweet fruits, malts, citrus and pine. Taste is of sweet tangy fruits, sweet malts. Piney. Resin. Medium bodied, a touch of alcohol presence. The blend is solid. And carbonation is solid. Nice one! 14

Stine
3.4
Indeed Imperial White IPA
Foggy but not hazed, grayish yellow color. Lavender, white peach, zesty aroma that showcases herbal and spicy qualities; alcohol and honey in a sticky, stinky compost back end. The flavor offers white tea leaves, coriander, tangerine; the hop and yeast components donít feel too competitive here and the herbal overload that can create that soap sensation is carefully checked. Instead, pineapple and papaya juices flash briefly in the middle, pushing the acidity and the come-back appeal. The somewhat fulsome body and sugar cookie malt sweetness that it engenders are not helpful in this otherwise impressive show of restraint.

Indeed Derailed #16 - Lucy
Hazy gold with frothy head. Aroma is a combo of west coast hops and fruit. Taste : this is billed as a sour/IPA fusion and thatís what it is. Itís tart and fruity up front and then you get the spicy, citrus hops on the back end. Weird at first but grows on you. Itís light yet flavorful. Refreshing summer ale. I canít say I love it but itís not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Indeed Double Day Tripper
A big improvement on the basic Day Tripper, IMHO. Certainly a different taste profile, with a lot more bitterness, an initial dank "rush", on a sweeter malt base. Iím not a big fan of the Day Tripper, but I could drink quite a few of these. Pours a mid-copper color with a good head that diminishes to a thin film as you drink. Enjoyed at Yard House, West End, St. Louis Park, Minnesota while watching Olympics soccer.

Local swap from deyholla, thanks!! 2015: Walnut, fudge, raisin nose, some volatiles. Black, medium beige head, good retention. Raisin, charred oak, walnut, rum overtones. Possible appearance of marzipan. Vanilla finish. Medium body, easy carbonation, alcohol is well concealed. Layers of complexity. The rum barrels work very nicely with the base stout, which is awesome.

I wasnít as enthusiastic about this as many of my fellow Minnesota raters. The sour is too far subdued and the flavors are muted, going quickly in the finish. It doesnít have enough backbone to stand up to food flavors or pair especially well with anything. Semi-dull yellow color. On tap at Pizza Luce, Roseville.

Can: Caramel and lemongrass nose. Opaque rust, medium yellow head. Less sweet on the palate as on the nose. Dried leaves, caramel, tea. medium body, moderate carbonation. Dull hop presence, just past its best by date by a few weeks, so it isnít fresh, but it didnít hold up well either.

Clear golden pour with a single finger head. Lace present. Aroma is very flowery along with some citrus. Medium bodied. Lots of citrus notes, nice and dank. Orange pith leads to a bitter finish. Somewhat dry, but leaves you wanting more. Not much grain character. Arguably dirty hop water, but I do like it.

On tap at Busters, pours a murky bright red with a thin white head. Aroma is like strawberry jam/preserves. Tastes like strawberry jam with, fruit junks and all, sweet berry flesh and tart sour strawberry skins, flavors are boosted with lacto and basement funk on the finish. Best strawberry beer/sour Iíve ever had, delicious!

Indeed Wooden Soul #7 - Raspberry Cherry Sour Red Ale
10 or 12 oz. pour, on tap at the breweryís taproom in Nordeast Minneapolis, Minnesota. Consumed on 6-16-16. Dark, hazy maroon to medium brown. Glows quite ruby red, getting toward purple, in the light. Small amount of beige head. Very nice color and look of the liquid. Twizzlers, bubblegum, and cinnamon chewing gum scents. Tart raspberry and sweet cherry. Pleasant smell but would be better still if tarter and less sweet. Tartness verging on sourness hits first but sweet, floral, fructose fruitiness quickly follows. Cinnamon spiciness. Sweeter than I was expecting. Reminds me a bit of a New Glarus fruit beer, but not as incredibly fruity or transcendently great. Still a really likable beer. Brett yeastiness evident after several sips. Slightly chemical but in an inoffensive way. Clay. Plum. Overripe banana finish. The Brett combines with the fruit candy or Fruit Roll-Up sweetness to produce an effect that gets odd and grating toward the end, costing it a point in overall score. Lively and prickly (in a good way) in the palate. Frothy. Light to medium body. Good beer, getting close to very good.

Indeed L.S.D. Honey Ale
Honey gold with small head. Very floral lavender aroma; quite unique. Taste - you really can taste all three parts. The earthy flowery lavender isn't subtle followed by the sweet honey and dark fruit. Certainly unique but so perfumey that after one, you're ready to move on. Still, I like the attempt and it is pleasurable for a short time. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
