From Bottles to Growlers- beer reviews by SANDY FELD, certified taster
Flying Dog Gose

Gose is an old German beer style made with 50-60% malted
wheat, which creates a cloudy yellow color. This brew (4.5% ABV)
has a low hop bitterness and is dry throughout.  It is made with
salt which tends to dominate the flavor profile.  It is light and
crisp with lemon and herd notes losing to the salt dominance.
Fun to try.....once.

Allagash Interlude

This is a rather unique 9,5% Saison since part of it has been aged
in French Merlot and Sirah oak barrels, which impart a distinctive
vinous plum character and a drying, almost tannic finish. Nose
brings Lemons, apple and tart grapes.  Taste opens as a subdued
Tripel that is then balanced with  barrel, wood, funk, yeast,  and
brett notes.  It has a medium creamy body with solid carbonation.

Overall Rating -  Good
Having sampled nearly 4,000 different beers in my
capacity as a fully certified taster I can promise
honest, thoughtful, and careful evaluations.  However,
remember that these reviews are totally subjective.  
Consider this column an informative resource only.  
The bottom line is to trust your own judgment and
keep drinking!

Great Divide Wolfgang

This 8% ABV dopplebock lager opens with a
nose of brown bread, earthy yeast, and light
alcohol.  Expect flavors of sweet dark bread,
malts with wood notes, and hints of orchard
fruits.  A touch of caramel and spicy hops
appear near the finish to balance the
sweetness and bring a tough of bitterness. A
well balanced brew in the style.

Overall Rating: Above Average
