    Cranberry Pumpkinfest-Terrapin Beer Company

    Just enough cranberry juice added to balance the melange of pumpkin pie spices and flavors. Poured a reddish-orangish-amberish hue with a small head. The 12 ounce can I received from my wife's Atlanta cousin was distributed equally among 3 tasters tonight during leftoverfest at the dd household tonight. Aromas were the expected spices and the tartness on the tongue from the berries was a pleasant complement to the other adjuncts. IBUs at 20 with the ABV at 5.5%. Certainly worth a can to try or a small litter to share the love with friends and family.

    Old Fashioned (draft)-Wicked Weed

    The "other" half pint shared with younger daughter this afternoon with our sammiches.

    Pour was a dark brown, certainly lighter than the On Fleek, with little head. Quite the bourbon nose followed by a cherry cola taste with a twist of orange and a generous amount of bourbon in the middle and at the finish. A different interpretation/rendition of the classic Old Fashioned cocktail. The base was somewhere between a brown ale and a porter without the nuttiness of a brown ale or the chocolatey and/or coffee flavors of a porter. I'll guess IBUs of about 30 and the ABV was on the Bottle Revolution electronic draft board at 10%. If fuse hadn't tasted and reviewed it, I might never have tried it either so another +1 for Ymm, Beer. If given a choice, I'd also choose this over the Alltech version, but, they're pretty different ales and I wouldn't hesitate trying a side-by-side or ordering either one again.

    Unfortunately, Mrs. dd discovered how Serendipity tastes.

    "Wow, this doesn't taste like beer at all. It tastes like cranberry-apple-cherry Ocean Spray juice," she cooed as she poured herself almost a six ounce portion from our 25 ounce bottle .

    New Glarus Apple Ale

    I have to admit I opened this with some anticipated bias based soley on Redd's Apple Ale advertising (which I have never had).

    Says brown ale base with apples.

    Very effervescent, and an incredible apple cider nose.
    I try to avoid "sparkles on the tongue" and (too much) hyperbole.
    This beer is worth every superlative I can throw at it.

    Fall in a glass (is that a thing?).
    An almost perfect blend of beer and cider.

    I'm forcing myself to sip this Apple ale as it is highly quaffable, while at the same time warding off my better half from drinking my glass.

    It's funny how things work out.
    I would have thought 2 Apple Ales would have been enough.
    Now that they are gone, I'm thinking a 6 pack or even a 12 pack still would have evaporated before the end of October (or maybe save a couple for Thanksgiving and apple pie).

    While I don't know that I would drink more than one of these in a sitting, this beer is such high quality, it's among the best beers I've ever had.

    devildeac, thank you!!!!!
    Apple Ale-New Glarus Brewing

    I also had the same trepidation in opening this, mine coming from having tasted Redd's apple ale. The New Glarus product is in a totally different universe. We had our first 12 ounce bottle of this last PM, dividing it 3 ways, for our New Glarus fruit beer dessert night. Even Mrs. dd got into the fray, stealing 2-3 sips from my portion. , I mean, .

    NG claims a brown ale base but it's a really light brown ale, or, as fuse alludes to above, perhaps a brown ale-cider hybrid. Incredible cidery nose, and I'm not talking a commercial hard cider, I'm talking orchard/farm-pressed fresh apple cider. Same tongue-tickling sensations but bubbly, almost like apple champagne. I'll guess IBUs around 20, if that. ABV probably about 5%-they don't list ABV on any of their products. I could drink this with (for?) breakfast, lunch, dinner and/or dessert. I'll stop there as fuse has a far better description above. Outstanding beer, and I likewise, wish I had another half case or more of this in the "cellar."

    I took notice of this in social media and was going to give you a hard time later.

    In unrelated news, Wicked Weed only bottled enough Red Atrial to get to wristband #180 in line this morning.

    Octoberfest-Foothills Brewing

    Better late than never .

    Finally downed this 12 ounce trader from dpslaw tonight (thanks!) with some pulled pork, slaw, lima beans, stuffing, baked sweet potatoes and some marinated green bean/peas/onions/red peppers. Pour was a medium brown with a small head. Nutty and earthy aromas with flavors of toasted bread, almonds, light brown sugar and herbal bitterness. IBUs and ABV both a bit high for the style at 42 and 5.8, respectively. Solid entry in a crowded field.

    The first pfffft of opening the cap immediately released thick fruit aromas throughout the room. Even after pouring into two glasses I am fairly certain I could be content to smell that bottle forever.

    Head was thick and pink and has staying power.

    Nose is like cherry jello.

    Mouthfeel is not as thick as Raspberry Tart (the memory anyway) but close.

    I'm not sure what New Glarus knows about fruit and beer that no one else knows.
    Aside from possibly real Belgian Kriek and Framboise lambics, I have never had a better fruit beer than New Glarus.

    Rich cherries, cinnamon, tartness from cranberries, and a cinnamon-y apple finish.

    Wow, wow, wow, wow, WOW!

    Words insufficient beyond find it, buy it, drink it, enjoy it!
    Serendipity-New Glarus Brewing

    ^^^^

    I'll not often "steal" someone's review, but, in this case, everything fits. Perfectly. There was almost a fight at the dd household Friday night as the 3 original tasters added a 4th during the consumption of our 750 ml bottle of this as I found Mrs. dd pouring herself about 4-5 ounces of this and that's never done while fine, hand-crafted ales are being tasted. I think she's sipped 4 ounces of beer in our blessed 38+ year marriage and, yes, it was the Raspberry Tart fuse mentioned above, which she referred to as "raspberry champagne." Serendipity was "not beer" in her words and tasted like a sweet, organic 100% juice blend of cherries and apples with a slight pucker from the Wisconsin cranberries. The Apple Ale (ratebeer 98) was a tough act to follow but this readily and easily surpassed it (ratebeer 100). There's one more bottle remaining and that'll be a Christmas tasting, if I can hide it from her that long .

    Rum barrel Hardywood GBS

    Not sold in stores as I can figure. I'll go by Hardywood in the next few days and buy a few. No biggie; they're 15 minutes from my house.

    Just when I thought Dogfish Head had tried every imaginable additive to their ales, they release this:

    http://www.dogfish.com/brewery/beer/beer-breakfast

    Buyer beware.













    "A stout tricked out with all sorts of breakfast ingredients including Guatemalan Antigua cold press coffee, Maple syrup harvested from Western Massachusetts and for the quintessential Delaware breakfast touch - Rapa Scrapple and their secret blend of spices. "


    Scrapple?!?!

    WTF?

    I had this at the brewery a month or two ago - fantastic stuff. May have reviewed it here actually. I'm not good with the DBR search feature...probably wasn't much of a "review" anyways

    19oz cans? Wow...may be worth the 20 minute drive to Brevard.

    Never mind, that was the rum barrel aged Ten Fidy.
