It is a waxed canvas jacket.
Oh, ok. Dope jacket.
Anyone had any Nevel yet? Wasn't sure what to fill up my Etre box with but these caught my eye, they sound right up my alley.
My favorite brewery from the Netherlands right now.
Gulzig, Rust, Minne and Weide are all great. But really all of them are good, except for the collabs they've done this year.
Say no more. Skipping the Fantomes and grabbing these instead.
I don't like Fantome honestly, I've mentioned it before (probably in this thread). Haven't had a good bottle yet and every time I give them another shot I end up disappointed.
More for the rest of us.
Aged Pissenlit changed my life
Where's the saison pin from?
Think it's Catboy who works at the veil
Thanks, SAISON FUCK.
3 total bangers last night watching Survivor Series with two friends:
110 ft north vintage by Suarez thanks to Os for that one in a LIF last year. Exquisite body. Crisp & clean. Some white tea. Oaky vanilla on the finish. Maybe a hint of juniper. Beautiful beer.
Double Raspberry Lineage Wheat from Trillium. Insane red color. Huge jammy nose. Unexpectedly great bones. Nice yeast character. Clean and dry but hugely jammy and fruity. A top five fruited saison for me. It's not as earthy and fresh raspberry as say Framboise du Fermier, but it's different in the jamminess and the current trend to fruit the hell out of things. Really great.
Gin barrel saison with black currants from Werk Force. All those earthy and tannic notes like you get from Black Agnes with a clean bodied saison. Some juniper from the gin barrel and some oak notes. Very impressive. I believe they've done well at FOBAB too.
Brando and team at Werk Force have done a great job with Farmhouse Vultures and its fruited variants as I wasn't a huge fan when they first started releasing it off their old system, but it has really come into its own over the past couple of years.
Side by side of two of my favorite beers I did a few weeks ago. Batches are whatever was on the shelf locally.
La Verm was the favorite overall. Both were expertly carbonated and great examples of what the style could be; but the peppery, slightly hoppy, coarse and yeasty taste of La Verm was more enjoyable than the much more simple, slightly spiced and fruity character of Fantome.
Overall, I’m at the point where I could buy Blaugies 12 packs and 3 of each new batch of whatever label Fantome. This was just fun to do for science.
Enjoying this mixed fermentation saison I brewed two years ago with spruce tips. It was kind of a lousy beer for a while but it's developed a nice hay/lemon/blueberry/evergreen flavor and really dried out.
I had a Bishops Barrel 22 from Saint Arnold yesterday. It’s a saison brewed with honey and aged in wine barrels with peaches. Outstanding saison, very clean and bright and just a great change of pace in a stout heavy day. No pics but I’ll probably be buying out a shelf of these next time I go shopping.
First time w/ Sergio. Yum.
Four years old and still banging.
