|Allagash Coolship Red
This is a GBelgium Fruit Lambic at 5.7% ABV. You are greeted by
aromas of ripe raspberry,oak wheat, vanilla, apricot, and hints of
red wine. Taste follows the nose with a moderate tartness offset
by a fruity sweetness, light funk, toasted malt, and wood. Delicate
and very well made. If you like the style you will like this.
Overall Rating: Very Good+
|Oskar Blues Can-O-Bliss
This is al 7.2% "hazy" IPA from the craft can innovators. It opens
with smells of pineapple, grass and slight citrus and malt. Taste is
a touch sweet with a moderating bitterness. Taste leans to malts
over caramel, pineapple, nectarine, and tangerine notes. Smooth
and well made but many better examples of the style in the market.
Overall Rating: Good
|Bell's Song of Myself
This is an American IPA tat 6.5% ABV. Its
nose brings sweet floral, and malt notes
followed by gentle citrus. Taste features
sweet malts, grassy herbal hops fruity esters
with mild lemony candy. Slightly bitter finish
under late appearing citrus and pine.
Overall all nicely balanced and refreshing
but does not stand out from the crowd.
Overall Rating: Above Average +
