I started with the two lighter beers. This one is also very nice and drinkable. I'm looking forward to trying the amber and pale. Those are my favorite styles.

Bobby, the first two are really masterfully made. Color me impressed!

And thanks for sharing!
Wow, thanks for the compliment. I know you wouldn't believe it but this beer is not filtered, it's just well cold conditioned by now. It was brewed in June and was an EXTRACT of all things This one was filled using the BMBF out of the keg. I do like this beer quite a bit and the only reason it's sat around this long is that not many people like the Belgian phenols and even I need to be in the mood for it. I tell people its "sort of like a Blue Moon" but it has the Belgian funk too it which many people take as "sour".

This is it:

Okay, I'm ready to sample some of the APA,

Another of Bobby's beers pours crystal clear. A generous head atop a deep golden beer with just a hint of red.

Slightly citrus aroma thanks to the hops. A nice upfront roasted malt flavor followed by a slight taste of hops and residual bitterness. This reminds me of the Ed's Haus Ale I made. It's very nicely balanced and goes down easily. Another fine brew from Bobby M. I saved my favorite style of the bunch for last.
