Eden's favorite type of beer seems to be Stout.
Smooth, creamy, sweet Porter on nitro. Finishes noticeably hoppy and bitter. Incongruous.
High alpha hop bomb. Nice flavors and not too pungent but it hits you in the face and not very pleasantly.
Chocolate roast Amber with a significant hop presence. Finish goes from Irish red style caramel to quite bitter in a hurry.
Clean, straight sour. Passion and orange are obvious, guava not so much. Cereal finish, Berliner Weisse-like
Round, cleanly tart and fruity up front. Definitely reminiscent of "dragonfruit flavor" rather than dragonfruit itself. Some berry. Light, pale ale finish. It's tasty and drinkable, but I think the character is more like a radler than a beer beer, you know?
Main flavor here is hazelnut, creamy and nutty. It really manages to overcome the sweet umami heaviness that usually characterizes this family of beers. Only real complaint here is that the chili was pretty much a non-entity here. I didn't taste it at all.
Green Jalapeño flesh, dry and bitter. Slight cereal and fruit to finish, but primarily chili. Not spicy, just a hint of building warmth.
Flavor is somewhere between a hazy and a brut. Grapefruit, and grape; fairly bitter finish. I mean, this was perfectly fine? But compared to the previous two bruts I've tried, this was definitely the weakest.
Firestone Walker Pacific Gravity Bourbon Barrel-Aged Weizenbock (unknown release)
Just hints of spice, primarily caramel. Super mellow, less booze, more barrel.
Draft at Brouwer's Cafe, Seattle
A very interesting blonde, kind of a murky, rooty opening but with very nice honey / buttery notes featuring prominently. Reminds me of my mom's ginseng tea. Clean, thin body with a light cereal finish. Would be interesting to compare to Double D but that wasn't an option. Yum!
See notes on Slackwater, because this beer was very similar. This one had a bit more alpha, somewhat less resin, making this a little more one-note in flavor (bitter, sweet). Very similar finish. Good, but I did like Slackwater better.
This was really tasty. Reminds me a little of some Brett IPAs I've had, though this doesn't seem to have Brett. Slightly grapey, fruity but very dry. It's got the crispness of a nice champagne but definitely some hop fragrance and bitterness as well. If this is the new trend, I'm looking forward to it.
This was... kind of nasty. Smells good, but you're hit by a really funky, sweaty-something flavor to open. It goes fairly quickly to a sour, decent peach flavor, but the very next sip starts 100% funky all over again. Unlike many sours, this doesn't get better the more you drink.
A straight, crisp lager in the American style but with plenty of flavor. Grassy, clean bitterness. Very refreshing.
Slightly rooty sweetness, slightly herbal bitterness, but otherwise clean lager with some fruit notes. Really nice.
Tastes like a very dry Belgian pale; yeasty with esters that are stopped short by non-sweetness. It's a chewy-yet-light sort of beer. Not exactly refreshing, but pretty tasty.
This didn't taste like a beer at all. Unusual in that this was way more like a Moscato d'Asti or other sweet sparkling dessert wine more than other doesn't-taste-like-a-beer-beers. Sometimes I score highly even if a thing doesn't taste beer-like but I'm not feeling so generous today.
Didn't taste at all like my last review. Acrid, alpha bitterness over everything else, kind of like sucking on an alcoholic tire.
Not gonna lie, the beer was good but this pizza was the real star. This was the house beer, a sweetish blonde with a touch of fruitiness on top, very easy to drink.
Bottle at Trieste, Roma
Lots of head but still a touch flat. Good Märzen flavor, slightly sweet on the back end, but solid. This bar has really good burgers, by the way.
Draft at Open Baladin, Roma
They called this an "Egyptian style" - not very beer like, more like a plummy ginger tonic. Cask-like flatness and a lightly maltt finish. Pleasant but bland.
Draft at Open Baladin, Roma
Like a less yeasty version of the Moretti Grand Cru. A maibock to that here's weizenbock, is the best comparative way to put it.
Draft at L'antica Birreria Peroni, Roma
Very light cereal lager beer, goes down very easily. An Italian Miller Lite.
Bottle at Boutique Hotel Nerva, Roma
Slight fragrance of candied citrus peel. Mellow, sweet cereal lager. Way more interesting than a regular Moretti.
Bottle at Ristorante Il Biondo, Siena
This imposing 750mL bottle was less than €4. Estery like a weizenbock, slight raisin, very slightly spiced. I enjoyed this a lot.
Bottle at Canto degli Scali, Firenze
Bottle at Terazza Cafeteria Bartolini Galleria Degli Uffizi, Firenze
Decently drinkable. For something "non filtrada" this was remarkably clear. Tasted somewhere between an American wheat and a lager.
Bottle at Giardino, JW Marriott Resort & Spa, Venezia
In America we'd call this an IPL. Fairly hoppy. Surprise -- didn't love it.
Bottle at Sagra, JW Marriott Resort & Spa, Venezia
Well, they're not lying. This is sour, and it tastes like cucumber and lemongrass. It's only mildly sour, but since the other flavors are not sweet at all, it'll pucker you a little bit. It at least will not make you think of savory Vietnamese food. It's not bad at all.
Thick, milshakey stout. Not an overwhelming finish, but still dessert-like, with a creamy marshmallow flavor. Directly in this flight, I liked the Holy Mountain a lot better than this.
I like the joke in the name, but I don't much like this beer. It's a pithy, boozy IPA like you'd expect from Stone, but the peach (it doesn't really read as peach) gives this kind of a straight-through insipid sweetness that takes this to a new level of displeasure.
It's not exactly a beer. It's like a pomegranate juice cocktail, maybe some apple or peach. Just a hint of cereal to remind you is a beer. Sometimes this is a ding on the rating. Today I'm feeling kind.
I had wanted Reuben's Hazy IPA, but they were out. This was advertised as juicy, but it was more of a standard Northwest IPA flavor. Excellent IPA, though, clear and fragrant, fruit and pine. Clean cereal finish, no oily bitterness. Unsurprisingly good, given the brewery.
