Hoarder’s Trustee

My friend has a Bruery Hoarder’s membership, and the guy who’s trusteeing for him was in town with a few of his friends. Since we were all too lazy to drive down to Eugene for Hellshire Day, we decided to do some drinking here in town.

A special beer from New Belgium that I am not supposed to talk about. It was the best beer I’ve had from them next to caged and corked La Folie though. A

Almanac Dogpatch Sour: Tasty, but not the best beer from Almanac, a little too acetic. B

Almanac Farmer’s Reserve #3: This is the best beer they make. It’s kind of old at this point, so the strawberries and nectarines have faded quite a bit, but this beer is still great. A-

Logsdon Peche ‘n Brett: Great beer, but every time I have this I just think about how much better I like Fantasia. Tough life I know. A-

Cascade Noyaux: Really delicious, and in my opinion the best light sour that Cascade makes. Fruity, with a little bit of nuts, while not being overly sour.

Block 15 Super Nebula 2013: Best version of Super Nebula to date in my opinion, mostly because it tastes like fudge in a bottle. Great balance of barrel character, bourbon, chocolate, and alcohol heat. A+

De Garde Vin Lee: Yep. Making another appearance after it exploded upon opening. A/A+

IMAG0977

Lost Abbey Duck Duck Gooze: Probably the best label on a sour beer ever. It also tastes fantastic to boot! Lots of sour, citrus, with a nice funk background. A/A+

Commons Emelie: Just had this not too long ago, and it’s still very good. I think it will get better with age though. B+/A-

Yeah….I don’t understand wine, but this was amazing. A+
