EithCubes (5772) - 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, isnt it? Its really cranked, like this was fermented in the trunk of somebodys 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 (1391) - 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.

hotstuff (5078) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 22, 2014
Rated on 10-22-2009 (Bottle) When poured, this beer forms a large frothy white head that mostly diminishes, hazy golden body, fizzy carbonation, and a fair amount of lacing. The Aroma consists of yeast, fruit and spice. The Taste is spicy, sweet and fruity. This beer has a short dry finish. The Palate is mildly tingly and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this is another nicely brewed beer from Schlafly. I enjoyed the flavor of this beer and it is worth trying. This is definitely a beer I recommend trying and a beer I would enjoy drinking again.

Une bouteille de 750ml embouteille le 14 novembre 2012 partage avec Patrick. Un liquide jaune dore ressemblant au miel. Un nez acide, de malt pils et de miel. La bouche est acide de mauvais malt pils et de sucre candy. Je naime pas cette bire.

Un flacon de 75 cl. Un liquide embouteill avec amour le 11-14-2012. lil, une boisson dore et sa petite tte blanchtre et incertaine. Au nez, lchange classique mais sans doute efficace entre la levure pice et les malts ples belges. Une monte fruite qui semble regrouper quelques citrons avec des fruits du verger. Au got, une prsence non-ngligeable de pte pain, de coriandre et de notes citronnes. Une prsence trs poivre et passablement florale dun alcool qui machale. Au palais, un liquide qui prsente un corps de moyenne densit avec un lot de bulles piquantes et une texture faiblement crmeuse. En finale, un mlange plus ou moins russi de houblons, dalcool et de levure. Tout compte fait, pas tant catastrophique que a. Cette bire me semble intressante pour ce quelle est. Enfin, pour le moment, ce type de bire me lasse royalement.

Finhead (1714) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - OCT 7, 2013
For rating #1000, bottle autographed by Dan Kopman. Hazy, yellow-orange pour with a frothy, white head. The aroma is spicy and herbal, with some light fruit. It has a medium body with slightly oily texture and lively carbonation. The taste is sweet but finishes a little milder with a semi-dry feel.
