BJ's Grand Cru
Draft. It poured a golden orange with an off-white head. The aroma is malty and spicy with notes of Belgian yeast, dried fruit, and clove. The taste is balance with a hint of sweetness. The 10% ABV is well hidden. Nice.

BJ's Grand Cru
Tap at bjs Easton. Great dark amber pour with lasting off white head. Nose is Belgian and body is medium. Banana and clove and fruit esters within. Hides alcohol well. Pretty good - not best ever but a quality brew.

BJ's Whiskey Barrel Stout - Bourbon Tatonka
tap at BJ's in Fort Wayne in May 2017, listed a "Bourbon Barrel Stout" with 8.7% abv and 40 IBUs. Is it this beer or something different? I'm not sure. Near black pour. Small, light tan head. The aroma is of bourbon, roast malt, and maybe some licorice. The sweet, roast malt rich flavor has ample bourbon. It's a little hot. Full bodied. Lingering bourbon taste. Very good.

BJ's Berry Burst Cider
tap at BJ's in Ft Wayne in May 2017 - Very fruity aroma. The flavor is very sweet with berries. It's basically fruit punch. I guess it's light and refreshing, but it's pretty meh overall.

BJ's Grand Cru
Shared 750 ml., XVII bottle poured to snifters displaying a lightly hazed, orangey/gold color, with a presentable layer of off white froth, and foamy spots & strands of lacing. The nose was fruitiness as a blend of orange & lemon, slight banana, Belgian yeast spiciness and subtle, Tripel-like phenols. Medium bodied, with okay carbonation, and light silkiness to the texture, the taste was somewhat similar notes, with more fruitiness, comfortably integrated alcohol, and some finishing dryness. A year of cellaring worked well.

BJ's Berry Burst Cider
Tap at BJs in Boardman OH. Very light pleasantly pink and clear. Smells like yummy soda pop. Good initial carbonation overwhelms the senses. Hard to find any alky in this brew. Goes down way too easy, like raspberry soda pop. Overall feeling of sweet bubbly berries fer sure. Not bad. Much better than many ciders and its well down for such a sweet brew. Probably one of the best ciders I have had to date!

BJ's Grand Cru
Marked as 18th annual special 2017 version. Pale and clear. Tap BJs boardman. Nose has no hint of the alky content within. First taste is somewhat boozy but more behaved than expected. Not in yer face like so many other so called grand crues. Warming sensations down the throat. Some leather, some saddle. Some something else. Slight medicinal finish but overall it hides its alkyt pretty well for such a high abv brew.

BJ's Oasis Amber
BJs boardman oh. Barely any smell. Looks like lighter iced tea. Taste is a little bit of leather with a mild malt background. Good co2 throughout. Lacks many of the ill attributes that many craft ales posses. Not bad, enjoyable civilized brew. Better than expected. Probably one of the better mild amber ales I've had in a while.

BJ's Holidaze Harvest Pumpkin Ale
Tap BJs boardman. Darker pale like iced tea. Spicey nose. Yes, some pumpkin spice but its never overdone. Quite mild on the spices and not overpowering like so many pumpkin beers, that typically do not even have pumpkin in it. I don't like pumpky beer is general but I found this quite enjoyable for a change. It even had shades of tartness lurking in the background. In the end, I think I could actually taste the pumpkin. Yes, probably on e of the better pumpkin beers I've tasted. Well balanced pumpkin brew. Thanks!

Draft BJs Boardman. Pale yellow. Mild nose. First taste is civilized and friendly. Easy bubbly fun. Very good carbonation. Well done lager. Finishes with a tad of slag. Very good overall lager experience. Pleasantly surprised, much better than expected.

BJ's Grand Cru
Sampled on draft this beer poured a slightly hazy caramel color with a medium sized foamy orange-white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was musty with honey, cracker and faint golden fruit. The flavor was yeasty and fruity with honey, cracker and hints of black pepper, medicine and perfume. Long finish with a bit of booziness coming through. Moderately full bodied. Ok but disappointing.
