We done here yet?
Pretty close! I'll follow up with folks who haven't submitted their score sheets later tonight and will hopefully have the winners announced early next week.
Any update on timing for this? Looking forward to it!
Tonight! I better put the finishing touches on that mash paddle!!!
No homecoming sash.
Are all the votes in?
If #8 doesn't win this in a landslide, I'm punching myself right in the palate
Ladies and gentlemen...
May I present to you...
The first Talk Beer Homebrew Club Saison competition champion...
Thorpe429 [#8] with an overall score of 39.36!
Congratulations Michael! You served up an expertly brewed saison.
More info to come in the next post.
2nd place goes to drgarage [#3] with an average score of 34.54.
3rd place goes to axeman9182 [#4] with a score of 33 on the dot.
Additional scores will roll into tomorrow. Wifey is giving me THE look.
If only I had some Ambrosia Ales and glass....
Thanks very much! Great news after a hellish day at work. Also huge props to drgarage whose beer I rated the highest.
Plenty of fun all around and I'm looking forward to the next saison, sour, funk, etc competition!
Also interested in seeing recipes for all the beers to the extent people want to share them. Mine was a blend, but I'll post the individual recipes and ratio of the components in the blend.
Finally, not sure if Beerontwowheels is sending out all score sheets to participants, but plenty happy to share sheets with anyone who wants the detailed feedback.
I'll send out score sheets as packages to all participants. Sometime this week.
Oh nevermind, here we go with Ambrosia Biere de Nord in a #GLASSWHALE. Strawberry, plum, grass, light acidity... aka awesome BdG.
Congrats Thorpe, I'm pretty sure I had your beer as the highest scored from me.
Congrats, Thorpe. A very worthy victor.
Congrats to all, especially Thorpe429. Seems like you guys scored pretty tough and he won by a good margin. Bummed I missed out on this one, just didn't have the saison machine running this year for some reason. Can't wait for round 2 on this one.
if only I had an extra 10-12 bottles of my Lambicus saison for this...
(it scored a 42avg at the Dominion Cup this past weekend, and still didn't place or even make it to the mini-BOS!)
