The Traveler Beer Co. – Curious Traveler (Fruit Beer)

  • 4.40% ABV
  • Well this isnt good. Like at all… Its is kind of on like that “Hard Lemonade” crap but it is a little worse because of the malts. I seriously dont know what they were going for, because you could take a glass of lemonade and pour a Miller Lite into it and it would taste like this. Does that sound good? If it does, I would like to offer you a glass of ferret musk cut with milk.

Ithaca Beer Company – Apricot Wheat (Fruit)

  • 4.90% ABV
  • Well I guess I had some more New York beers left. Thank god, because this is pretty good. I dont know why apricot tastes so good in beer but fuck me it does. Like most Heffe’s, I mean I think it is a Heffe it being a wheat and all. What ever, this is a pretty light tasting, the apricot I mean. It is something that I would drink after a long day of bull fighting under the hot sun. But I wont because that shit is wack, the bull fighting not the beer. I dont even know what I am doing here.

Jack’s Abby Brewing – Pumpkin Crop Lager (Fruit Beer)

  • 5.50% ABV
  • I dont know if it is just the skill of the brewer (it probably is) or if making a pumpkin lager is just a good idea, but this is working for me. I cant believe I an saying it but I am liking this. I isnt overpowering pumpkin, you can hardly even tell that it is there, but it is there. Just the right amount to make this enjoyable as a beer as opposed to a alcohol infused glass of pumpkin soup.

Samuel Smith Old Brewery – Apricot Ale (Fruit)

  • 5.10% ABV
  • This would be good but it is a Samuel Smith and I really dont like anything from Sam Smith. It is very apricoty (I amde that up). But it also very thick tasting. Thick like chalk water or like a glass of 2 day dead hooker blood. Congealed thick. On the plus side it is also kind of sweet. OHhhHHhh wait that isnt a plus, it is another gross. It isnt Belgian sweet but it is sweet enough that I dont like it.

Short’s Brewing Company – The Soft Parade (Fruit)

  • 9.00% ABV
  • This is pretty good but I think there is something a little wrong with mine. There is way to much carbonation, like so much that I was able to pour a bout an inch of beer and the rest of the glass was full of foam. It is so bad that it is detracting from the taste a little bit. I would imagine that with out the obvious problem this would be really good.

Well it’s been a while but I finally got another one, and… It is punch me in the asshole delicious! Fuck this is a good beer. The only down side is that the first one I drank was obviously fucked up. I dont know what to say other than, roll the damn dice. If it turns out right you will love it.

Founders Brewing Company – Blushing Monk (Fruit Beer)

  • 12.30% ABV
  • Holy shit this is the best fruit beer I have ever had. I am not kidding. I like all most all of the fruits I have had but they have been pretty sour, this is definitely sour but it isnt the only thing going on. The raspberries take center stage here and they do it in delicious way. I swear to me that this is like a super alcohol infused fruit drink that is also a beer. I will burn your house down to prove the point.

New Holland Brewing Company – Envious (Fruit)

  • 7.50% ABV
  • I was kind of disappointed when I poured this because it was so dark and had a pretty sweet smell. The taste tho… oh the taste. Very strange but it is totally subtle about it. It threw me for a loop so I looked up what the hell was going on with it and it turns out that there is a lot going on. Look it up for your self to get the whole picture but it is brewed with pears (which sounds gross but it works), raspberry and a chardonnay yeast. Sounds like a train wreck right? Wrong! it is awesome.
