Ybor Gold Calusa Wheat. Bloody awful! I won case for long drive in a charity golf tournament (I think second longest was 2 cases!). Tasted grassy--not as in "wheat" but as in aging fermenting piles of grass clippings in the hot August Tampa sun! Sort of a putrid vegetable smell that could also be defined as "fresh but certainly viable compost-a bit light on the chicken manure".

I couldn't even boil hotdogs in this swill. Finally gave it to a housepainter I know who sucks down Natty lite or Busch and he liked it fine. He also likes really cheap scotch whiskey and coca-cola.

OK, I have to join everyone saying Rogue Voodoo Maple Bacon. My friend brought me a bottle and said it was terrible, but I should try it anyway. Cloying artificial maple that coats the inside of your mouth and a liquid smoke flavor backing it up. I poured it into a 2oz taster glass, took one sip, gave my wife one sip, and poured out the other 1.75 ounces followed by the rest of the bottle. Worst beer ever! It makes me mad this beer exists at all, it makes me furious that Rogue sells it for $13+ a bottle.

Good to know. I won't try any of their others then.

I tried this. Saw it in a local grocery. Looks good, seems like an interesting idea. Tastes like a cheap 40oz. malt with blueberry nerds mixed in it, only worse.

I happen to own a small blueberry orchard (20 year old bushes). This June I will make a proper blueberry ale.

Am I the only one who actually liked this beer?

I like witbiers, but Allagash White is just aweful. I've tried it a few times and can't finish the beer.

I thought it was okay, and liked the bottle. That may be as close as you'll find
