Date Rape Melomel

In fact a lot of the stuff made by mr Anderson in Coachella Balley Homebrewers.

He had some 2006 lambics and some meads that were by far my favorites. No offense to CHUG or ASH. But this guy is a machine.

carnevoodo's pale ale was down right amazing....for such a more or less simple style, it was notches above the other APAs I tasted.

And Sacchromyces' serano and coconut mead was really great!

:mug:

No offense taken at all! You like what you like!

I wasnt blown away by any of the homebrews I tasted this year from what I remember anyway, not that there were many bad ones just none that were out and out amazing. Maybe a couple Saisons that were inspiring. Sopers Watermelon Wit tastes like a Jolly Rancher.

The bottle of Lost Abbey Cable Car was amazing and in my opinion worth the proce tag if you ever fnd yourself in a Toronado. I was pleasantly surprised by the Bruery Trade Winds too.

What I really liked about that beer though was that the taste said watermelon too me. I enjoy the Hell or High Watermelon from 21a, but sometimes it tastes more like a cucumber flavor. Soper's was a clear watermelon taste and I liked that a lot.

People had beer there other than CHUG? Hmmm... must have missed that.

I really loved the Ovila Dubbel during the Sacred Stones seminar, but that is obvious. The Belgian beers that Tom Nickel brought for his talk were great. I don't recall the first, but I'm fairly sure the second was Maulher 10 and then Le Trappe Q. I had plenty of delicious beer on pro-night

I had a great Kriek at...? the booth in the back corner during club night. All beers I tried from the HBT members were at least perfectly drinkable :) Other than that I stuck with our booth at club night mostly because I was having fun serving! carnevoodoo's imperial red rye was tasty, bsquared's sour brown was a big hit, as well as his English IPA on the beer engine.

The peanut butter stout was very good. I had a Doze IPA with Citra that gave me ideas for all those free Citra hops they were handing out. There was a smoked chili-pepper wheat beer that I had a few tastes of over the night. I had the Date Rape melomel, it was very good. Ken Shramm had some great mead in his mead lecture. Also, there was a ginger wit that I had in the Homebrew Planet lecture that was great.
