Grassroots Brewing – Brother Soigné (Saison)

  • 5.00% ABV
  • Welp another weirdly difficult beer to get a hold given to me by an awesome dude. Thanks man. Any way, this is a seriously good beer. It doesnt taste much like a Saison but damn, it is good. This reminds more a a sour than a Saison. Fuck it, labels are a tool of the military-industrial complex used to keep the working man down. This is delicious and I dont care if it is called “Dead Hooker Blood”. It isnt so sour that you cant enjoy it, it more like eating at Long John Silver’s. You get “meh” quality fish and then drown it in vinegar sauce.  AND! A feast for the Gods! Yup, this beer it just like that… Ambrosia.

Deschutes Brewery – River Ale (American Blonde Ale)

  • 4.00% ABV
  • Pretty excited! This dude at work that I don’t know very well bought me 4 different Deschutes beers for no apparent reason. No reason other than, he is awesome! Deschutes is basically impossible for me to get so yay! Anyway this is pretty good for a Blonde, which I am generally not a huge fan of. Mostly I think that Blondes are a little on the soft side as far as hops and malts go, which is fine, that is how they are supposed to taste. This one is pretty good in that it has a very nice malt smoothness to it. It isnt overpowering but it is more pronounced than most Blondes. All in all it is pretty good.

Cigar City Brewing/Sierra Nevada Brewing – Yonder Bock (Maibock)

  • 7.70% ABV
  • This is pretty good. It is brewed with god knows what, like a lot of experimental hops and shit I guess. I dont know what it is in it but I can tell that it is fucking awesome. It tastes almost like a pilsner, almost. Its like a pilsner had sex with a fruit basket and this is the bastard. That description sucks but trust me, this is a good beer.

Russian River Brewing/Sierra Nevada Brewing – Yvan the Great (Belgian Pale Ale)

  • 6.30% ABV
  • I am not gonna lie, I am pretty excited to try another Russian River. Not to say that their isnt room for Sierra to fuck it up but come on, Russian River! Annddd it isnt that good. It tastes kind of like coriander or something. I dont really know what the fuck coriander tastes like but I am guessing its like this. Or maybe beef jerky? I dont know, it isnt horrible but I dont want another.
  • – Dont buy
