Union Craft Snow Pants
Can from Craft Beer Cellar, Washington DC. Jet black in colour, with a decently-sized, beige, head. Leafy hops, big coffee notes, toasty malts, hint of chocolate and touch of oat creaminess in the leading to a dryish finish. Boozy, but very enjoyable.

Nice piney nose. Solid mouth feel. From there it’s down hill. Flavor is weak and insipid. Brewers are better than the beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Union Craft Older Pro Gose - Mango
From notes. Enjoyed at FoBAB 2017 (3rd session) in Chicago on November 11. The pour is a brighter golden orange color with a thick white head, a little creamy, that falls down pretty quickly with a nice bit of lacing as it all vanishes. The aroma is pretty solid. There is a distinct tart wheat and saltiness. The mango comes in more of a puree form and the light barrel addition on the back end cleans it up nicely. The flavor is much of the same. The saltiness works with the light tart wheat and lets the flavor of the fruit open up. It’s a little sweeter than I would’ve liked to see, but it’s legit. The mouth feel is a little lighter and clean with a bright carbonation and a lingeringly tart wheat and salty mango. I like this. It’s one hell of a break from the stouts and heaviness consumed. 7 4 7 4 15

Union Craft Old Pro Gose - Boysenberry
Notes of Fruit Loops. I generally don't care for cask ales, but I made an exception here because I like the normal version. I'm sure it's very nice, but the flat warmth of the cask conditioning killed it for me. Cask at World of Beer in Rockville, Maryland.

Tap. Pours slightly hazy amber orange, medium creamy off-white head, dissipates slowly, nice lacing. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, a bit soapy actually. Flavor is light plus sweet, medium plus bitter, traditional styling. Harsh, soapy and biting. Medium body. Huh.

Union Craft Blackwing Lager (Cookies and Cream)
CASK pour at World of Beer in Bethesda. FYI, this was on cask and not an infusion or randall beer. Poured a dark brown color, pretty close to cola color like the base beer with a small fizzy head. Aroma is really creamy, chocolate. Flavor was really like cookies and cream. Smooth, easy to drink. Wife liked the flavor, but didn't like the warmer temperature.

Not usually a fan of sours but this one got my attention. Nice nose of strawberry followed by good balance of wheat and cut grass. On palate, very clean with lingering strawberry and rhubarb finish but not overbearing. More tart than sour.
