Angry Hen Wakabout 0.7  
Angry Hen Brewing Kaslo, British Columbia
Dullish dark amber-brown. Not much head. Reeks of diacetyl. Not even going to bother.

Hawk Knob Ambrosia 3.6  
Hawk Knob Cidery & Meadery Lewisburg, West Virginia
Pours clear, faint golden with a two finger, white, quickly dissipating head. Aroma is apple, tropical fruit and gin. Taste is apple, peach and pineapple, moving to wood and light coconut. Finish is apple, peach and gin.

Beer Zombies / The Answer End 2 End Burners 3.8  
Beer Zombies Brewing Company Las Vegas, Nevada
Pint can from Niemuth's, 12/2/21. Got The AnSwer in WI, and a Nevada tick at the same time. Sweet! Murky orange, thin head ,poor retention. Aroma of melon, dank, papaya, mango. Taste is pineapple, tropical fruit, dank. Juicy, moderate bitterness. It's a mess, but I like it.

Wieninger Hoamat Weissbier 3.2  
Privatbrauerei MC Wieninger Teisendorf, Bavaria
Beer from day 2 of the Advent calendar. Slightly hazy gold pour, white head with not much retention. Clove and banana, some straw. Easy drinking. If I saw a sixer of it in the store I'd buy it again.

Seventh Son Smooth Pursuit 3.8  
12oz can from Arrow - Mason, canned 9/17/21. Really nice, satisfying big smokey flavor that I want in a smoke beer, over bready malt, very light crisp hop. Medium-plus body, full feel, light slick. Soft, lighter carbonation. Seems to drink a bit bigger than the ABV, but that could be the richness and intensity of the flavor. Moderate sweet taste, light to moderate bitter, and a nice big savory taste. Very satisfying. Rare to see a straight basic smoked beer. I enjoy the style, so this a nice treat.

4 Noses Spacey Casey 2.4  
4 Noses Brewing Company Broomfield, Colorado
16 oz can, canned 11/2/21. Pours murky dark brown with a medium frothy white head that retains OK and leaves some lacing. The aroma is lots of stinky catty onion hops with a little fruit. Becomes a bit more fruity as it sits. The flavor is sweet wheat malt with resiny minty catty hops and a little fruit. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation. Overall, I didn't care for the hops in this one.

Barebottle The Wonkatania 4.0  
Barebottle Brewing Company San Francisco, California
On tap at the brewery tasting room in Santa Clara. Beautiful appearance with a rich thick dense nitro foam over black liquid. Aroma is in-your-face smoky cigarette butts and coffee, like a Japanese cafe…, which is actually quite nice. Body is thin. Light perceived sweetness. Clean finish. Quite fun and tasty.

Mason Children of Loki 3.7  
Mason Ale Works San Marcos, California
16 oz. can, pours jet black with a small brown head -- no explosion, unlike Gerbeer, so either there's lots of can variation, or Gerry sucks at storing beer ;). Nose brings out full-blown banana upfront, followed by maple, cocoa and a touch of vanilla. Flavour is full of banana upfront, accentuated by lots of chocolate and vanilla, and only a hint of maple. This is like a chocolate banana dessert beer -- luscious, viscous mouthfeel, with above average but not cloying sweetness. The ABV is not felt at all. I dig this, but it's not really my kind of thing.

Goose Island Neon Beer Hug 3.4  
Clear yellow-gold pour with a tall, chunky off white head. Aroma of citrus, melon, a little dank and grain oil. Flavor is about the same with a little nuttiness and zesty citrus. Light body light carbonation, off dry. Decent overall.

Barebottle Juice by the Sea 4.3  
Barebottle Brewing Company San Francisco, California
On tap at the brewery tasting room in Santa Clara. Hazy golden color. Tons of Unripe mango bitterness and fermented pineapple. Nice Juicy light citric acid finish. Easy to drink. Medium plus hazy body. Very good.

Corsendonk Agnus / Abbey Pale Ale 3.7  
Brouwerij Corsendonk Turnhout, Antwerp
Hazy pale yellow brew with vigorous carbonation feeding a 1.5" of thick bubbles. Bready nose with a hint of banana. Medium-to follow-bodied with bready and liquid yeast flavors accented by some spicy phenols--clove and banana. A bit of a prickly phenolic finish. Well-balanced and thoroughly enjoyable.

Wieninger Hoamat Weissbier 3.7  
Privatbrauerei MC Wieninger Teisendorf, Bavaria
500 ml from Costco. Solid banana flavor with cloves and ginger in the finish. Fizzy, drinkable and a small amount of straw in the body.

Barebottle Powder Clouds 3.9  
Barebottle Brewing Company San Francisco, California
On tap at the brewery tasting room in Santa Clara. Hazy golden color with light brown notes, which is probably suspended yeast. Clean aroma. Light weird grapefruit bitterness. Easy to drink. Pretty good.

Great Central German-Style Hefeweizen 3.3  
Cans sent by Great Central for comment. Pours a big, thick white head over a pale yellow body, just a little less haze than normal. Light weizen nose, not much banana, but more wheat spice and a little malt. Taste is light, not as overpowering as some hefes go. Makes this more of a summer beer, but here we are in December. Does get a bit filling despite its apparent lightness.

Equilibrium / Magnify 400x 3.2  
Equilibrium Brewery Middletown, New York
16 oz. can, pours a cloudy peachy orangey yellow with a medium white head. Aroma has some hop burn, light chalk, pithy fruit, and citrus hops. Flavour is a little better, quite faded, with citrus hops, bitter citrus pith, some muddled chalkiness, and juicy stone fruits. Muddled, faded hops, and chalky. This isn't too impressive.
