De Garde Vin Lee Release

After the Super Nebula release, we all make the 2 hour drive up to Tillamook in order to make the De Garde release + bottle share. It’s a lot of driving for sure, but it definitely pays dividends!

Nice little line outside the brewery on a rare sunny winter day.

Upright Blend Love: Doing very well, and very suitable as a “standing in line” beer. A

Ooooh look! It’s the beer allocations for the Keepers Society! Much jimmies will be rustled.

DAT Coolship!

De Garde Imperial Vin Bu: One of the best beers from De Garde so far! I would place it above the raspberry variant and below the boysenberry version. A+

IMAG0843

There were a lot of people at the event, and it was run very well.

IMAG0844

Huh….that name looks familiar. This becomes important later.

Fire Engine #9: Golden raspberry sour that tastes a little like a diet version of Block 15’s Framboise White. A-

IMAG0846

Night Shift Cape Codder Weisse: Apparently this is really rare, but I just don’t get as much cranberry as I was expecting. Pretty good though! B+/A-

IMAG0847

Hill Farmstead Elaborative #2: Pretty good, but I really want to say this was terrible because I lost a bottle of this when it was being shipped to me. B+

IMAG0848

Jester King Atrial Rubicite: Yep, still tastes like jam! A-/A

IMAG0851

De Garde Vin Lee: Holy mutant batman! This beer is incredible, neck and neck with Imperial Vin Bu as the best beer of the day. A+

IMAG0852

New Belgium La Folie: Cage and Corked La Folie is superior to the more recent versions. Non-pasteurization is the way to go! A+

IMAG0853

Bruery Mocha Wednesday: This beer is insane. If you have the means, track one down. A+

IMAG0854

Upright Special Herbs: DEM SPECIAL HERBS!!!!!!!!!

IMAG0855

Olde Hickory Lindley Park: Tastes like Thanksgiving! A-/A

IMAG0856

Sante Adarius Love’s Armor: Best batch so far! B+/A-

IMAG0858

Jester King thingy thingama thing: I’m reaching the point of not caring…

IMAG0859

Cigar City Smoked Imperial Stout: Nice and peaty! A-

IMAG0860

Block 15 Super Nebula: Yeah, just came from the brewery, but couldn’t help myself! A

Remember that barrel I showed earlier? Here’s a picture of a weird man drinking straight from the barrel. I heard it was quite good.
