Taking Moby Dick to the Slaughterhouse

I’ve been looking forward to this tasting for a really long time. Even though the number of bottles wasn’t particularly high, the quality of the beers was….legendary.

Whale status even.

For those who read this blog regularly, this bar might look familiar.

Fate Black IPA with Coffee: So much coffee. B

No one talks on their cell phone while pouring walez anymore. Ann pairs well with a towel roll.

Hill Farmstead Ann: This beer doesn’t resemble Anna in my opinion, and that’s a good thing. Really nice brett presence with light wine barrel notes and some slight tartness. Super drinkable, you could easily down the whole bottle solo. The light lemon peel on the back end is a great way to finish. A+

Gotta finish whales while taking a knee out of respect.

As an Asian person, I had to use a banana. It had to be done.

Hill Farmstead Mimosa (featuring Banana): Wow this beer is unique. I’ve never had such a citrusy beer before!  Nose has all the fruits you can imagine. Orange, lemon, pineapple? The flavor proceeds to destroy your face with tons of fruit, moderate tartness, and a slighty bitter and dry finish that remarkably resembles that of a mimosa! Big props to my Vermont trader for sending me this! A+

This guy is listening for the cries of beer geeks everywhere as his whale bites the dust.

Lost Abbey Isabelle Proximus: Super funky nose. Flavor is intensely sour with a good punch of funk towards the finish. One of the best non-fruited sour beers out there. A+

This guy had some massive sour beer farts after this.

The bread is telling this guy that Tomme was saving all the carbonation for this beer. “HELLO? DOG? YES, THIS IS YOUR HAIR” (Hair of the Dog Shirt)

Lost Abbey Cable Car Kriek: This beer is insane. So much fresh and juicy cherries with a strong amount of tartness. Best beer of the day, and best kriek I have ever experienced. Hands and snifter down. A+

This is what $800 going into your liver looks like.

Some delicious fruited berliners from John Wakefield and Funky Buddha

“I SAID WALEZ!”

Drie Fonteinen Framboos: Funkiest beer of the day, with nice raspberry flavor. On the other hand, I expected more raspberry. A

…and down the hatch!

Bourbon Dark Lord paging Bourbon Vanilla Dark Lord: “You ready for this diabeetus bro?!”

Boubon Dark Lord and Bourbon Vanilla Dark Lord: BVDL>BDL. Bourbon was just super sweet, while the vanilla variant was less cloying. The two beers gave the whole group diabetes. They both get A’s

Those who pour together, finish whalez together.

Best beers in order: Cable Car Kriek, Mimosa, Isabelle Proximus, Ann, Framboos, and then the diabeetus twins.
