Adelbertís Vintage Series #3 - Barrel of Love (2015-)
2016. Dark in color and heavy in body. Plum, fig, spice, vanilla and whisky apparent in the nose (a touch hot) and the super complex flavor. Nice brew with a syrupy body but with high carbonation.

Adelbertís Whimsical Series: Hibiscus Saison
Looks like Big Red soda. Lightly sour with big fruity, floral notes. Just had some other hibiscus saison a couple weeks ago and this one is totally different. Funny how that works.

Hugely complex. Fruity and sweet and sticky and what not. Tobacco? Savory spices? Heck, I donít know. Think Iíve had one too many.

Deep, dark gold like real cider. Full white head. It smells like sasprilla or some other delicious soda... No thatís the one. Itís sasprilla or sasparilla or sasaprila or however you spell that. Itís too delicious to contemplate, so just drink up, or have a big red, or a sarsaparilla!

Adelbertís Black Rhino
Clear dark amber brown with a light tan rocky head thatís quite large in size. Rustic earthy nose of roasted black malt, old gymnasium, stale coffee and a earthy bitterness. Smooth but roasty and rustic flavor with dark semistale coffee grounds, Belgian esters, black malt acridity, and bitter dark cocoa. Just kinda okay. Gets a little tastier as it warms.

Adelbertís Whimsical Series: Hibiscus Saison
Can to glass - looks like grenadine with a wispy ivory colored head. Aroma is funky florals and perfume. Much fuller than expected, flowers come through decently with traces of berry, citrus Belgian yeast, hay, sort of a watery cardboard finish that kills it. Just decent... Extra points for a beer with this color and a decent taste.

Adelbertís Rusty Barrel Whiskybent Barleywine
Not as immediately accessible as Bigfoot, but an ultimately enjoyable barleywine. It comes on a bit strong, but like an outspoken friend, you come to appreciate its subtlety only after being initially daunted by its bluster.

Bomber sampled @ HopisHop B.U.M.B. 2016. 2013 Vintage. Dark brown, little bubbles. Nose is very oxidized, vinegar, sour cherry, acidic, varnish, this aint right even for a Wine BA beer. Taste is flat glue, varnish, acid, nail poolish, rubbish cherry & unripe fruit. This clearly ainít right. Varnish & glue body. Surprised at this being currently a top 50 Abbey Dubbel on RB, maybe a bad bottle?

Adelbertís Gypsy Belgian IPA
Bottle:   Orangish caramel in color, thick, thin to moderate foamy white head, little lacing.   A bit of a musty hop nose, a bit dank, some barnish and musty notes.   Not very bright.   Smells like a Belgian IPA, but the IPA part is very musty.   Muted hops, a bit citrus like, followed by that musty/barnish background.   Decent for what it is, but guessing that after 13 months its mellowed out quite a lot.   Still a little bubbley on the tongue, body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Finishes with a big musty/barnish citrusy hop profile.   Would be nice to try this one a bit fresher, but as is fairly intriquing.   Thanks Bill!

Adelbertís Whimsical Series: Hibiscus Saison
Sweet with a hint of funk. Floral fruity aroma with a whiff of pine and a hint of funk. Pours almost opaque pink hued amber with a foamy fizzy light pink head that fizzles away pretty quickly. Lots of pine and citrus hops like an IPA with some farmhouse funk along with it. They don't really go all that well together. Like it doesn't know if it wants to be an IPA or a Saison. The floral notes are really nice and there's a fruity sweetness that's kinda nice too. But too much conflict between the pine and the farmhouse.

Bottle in Santa Barbara.

Gotta say I really donít get the hate for this one. Dark pour, mild smoke to make things interesting atop the mellow dark-roast character. Almost like a gentle smoked beer; I quite like it. Chocolate and sweetness is fairly background, and itís low abv contributes to an easy drinkability.

Nice malt-forward Biere de Garde, tasted at two years of age. Malt flavors rise over a light farmhouse character, very easy to drink. Well crafted.

Adelbertís Whimsical Series: Hibiscus Saison
Can. This beer is pink -- and I donít mean a little pink, I mean full on in your face pink. Muppet pink. And thatís OK. Nose is lemon, phenols, hibiscus, papaya, and guava. A touch sweet up front, then a rush of dry tropical fruit; the hibiscus is definitely there, along with pineapple, mango, more papaya, and that dry spiciness that says saison. Imagine white pepper on a tropical fruit salad. Sounds good, doesnít it? Hey, the Dutch put black pepper on strawberries, and itís fantastic. Great long, citrusy finish. Tasty.

Adelbertís Whimsical Series: Hibiscus Saison
Light, refreshing, bright, brewed with hibiscus flowers and supporting a good cause. This beer pours bright pink (from the 100 lbs of hibiscus flowers - no fake coloring). I appreciate the color and flavor the hibiscus gives. Citrusy, fruity with a hint of tartness. Totally crushable in this warm weather.

Dark brown with a thin beige head. Aroma of dark fruit and a little booze. Belgian yeast, whiskey/boozy flavor. Better as it warms...bottle says 55-60. I would agree, but I was impatient. Wait for it.

Adelbertís Tripel B (Bad Boy Brew)
4 oz draft goblet taster at Lone Star Taps & Caps in Lewisville, Texas. The pour is a clear golden yellow with not much of a white head. The aroma is sweet floral, herbal yeast and a big full traditional Tripel nose. The taste is sweet, floral hay and the clove herbal Tripel yeast. The palate is medium to heavy bodied with soft to low carbonation and the yeast in the alcohol warming finish. This is a well made Tripel.
