    Is it too late to award the 2016 Nobel Prize in Economics to the fuckknuckles in that thread arguing that the beer in bombers is actually more valuable than the same beer in cans and therefore they feel the higher price per ounce in bombers is actually a better deal? Meanwhile, the same chucklefucks value their own time at what per hour of waiting in line for beer?

    Also LOL at "you aren't on Ratebeers best brewers" and "you don't have the big medals to back this up".

    That's some next-level econ-cicerone chucklefuckknuckle stuff.

    People need to STFU and just not buy the beer if they can't afford it. On a "per ounce" price, these cans are much better than a lot of bomber pricing.

    i did this again today. it continues to be good.

    all of those BA shitlords complaining about pricing have obviously never heard of abrasive, which hit the $20/4 pricepoint (and worth it at that) well before RAM was even a twinkle in someone's eye. fuck them, this tasty ass beer speaks for its goddamn self.

    Yeesh! Let's get this thread back on track. Seeing someone post about OG Pentameter made me want to pull some oldies out too.
    Last bottle of this one for me. Held up really well for a "Brett beer" and somehow has this wonderful apple cider flavor. Doesn't have a smidge of that weird Brett flavor you get with some old Brett beers.

    Saison Blend #1 from Transient Artisan Ales, dry, funky, big mineral heavy profile with a light hop bitterness, modest earthy / noble hop aromatics and flavor, just a hint of lactic acidity. Light cracker like malt profile.

    Fantastic and in my wheelhouse as a daily drinker if I would have had the foresight to grab about a case of it when I was last up there.

    Cheers!

    So rich, so much coffee and vanilla!

    It's a shame to solo dome this, but the fiancee doesn't drink and the dog just tried to bring a dead bird into the house (we won't be sharing a glass tonight). So I'll power through alone.

    has anyone else opened the biere de garde (absinthe/wine barrel)? i cracked one of mine last night and while i was a bit apprehensive about absinthe barrels being involved, it's a tasty beer and very complex. transient continues to kill it.

    drank foeder 2 cherry and apricot back to back. glad i did cherry first. it's a much more delicate beer than i expected, sort of like a lighter ardent with a splash of cherry? if you're looking for a cough syrup cherry bomb you're going to be disappointed but it is a very nice, balanced beer that was quite pleasant to drink. apricot is higher in acidity but definitely not too sour, and a good beer but not one i liked as much as cherry.

    Also drank mine last night. Agreed on not too sour or a Cherry bomb, just very nice.
