First Victim of the evening..................


one of the first 100% Brett fermented brews that we have tried,

it must be said that it is very pleasant, almost inviting, Yes, it had a bit of "horseblanket" to it but not to the level of a Belgian. A great start to the evening of drinking.

A gimicky bottle that led to the ingestion on a less than stellar Dubbel,
the 8.5% abv was hard to find in the cloudy, wheaty, and yeasty dry brew.

By far not worth the $10 Paid for this bottle ....

The next one we tried was the Stone's Juxtaposition. This is a Black Pilsner by Stone, BrewDog and Cambridge brewing company. The use of Sorachi Ace and Motueka hops produce a unique hop experience that held its own against the hickory smoked prok loin that Cheeto served for dinner. As usual Stone has exceeded expectations of the enlightened beer drinker with this offering. A definite must try for anyone is Stone's distribution area. This is a most definite for my favorites list and for the try to clone list.

Side Note- Cheeto brought me a sample of his Tart Cider. Its not quite to the Subversive standard but it is a nice and very tart cider. Dry and clean, it is a great summer cider.

Licher Pilsner from Bitburger Brewing/Germany. After the Stone Black Pilsner and dinner this was a sad BMC-ish offering of a German Pilsner. The potentially wonderful flavors were masked by the horribly skunked noble hops. The included advertisement was deceptive and incorrect. Most of the flavors that is was to include, were not present or too subtle for a hop-head such as Cheeto and myself are, to notice much at all. It was maybe something light to end an evening of drinking on if you like ending on a sad note.

Alley Cat Amber Ale

Cloying, lacking the sustaining bitterness commonly associated with an Amber ale.

SWMBO thought is tasted great.

Ty and I felt that is was akin to chewing on a sugar cane, but a far better offering that the Pilsner the preceded it.

Next. Sierra Nevada's Estate. This is definitely an must try. Everything in this recipe is grown on Sierra's farms in Chico California. Crisp, great body and assertive hop character and malty backbone give this first release an amazing overall impression similar to a young barelywine. While very nice now, this would do well with some aging.
