    Double IPA from Trillium. I was a bit disappointed to begin with, but it has a minty, dill thing which is growing on me.

    Vittoria cycling outside - I'm in Gent which is procycling central this week.

    Dark star Revelation IPA 5.7% 65 IBU. Quite popular according to the barman. Just the one is enough tho.

    Why do brewers keep on trying to make fruited saison beer? They never cease to disappoint.

    Last night we had a tap takeover by Partisan from that London; they sent Dee who was lovely and paired cheese to the beers.

    The one beer I was looking forward to most was Peach Iced Tea Saison ; nice saison but where's the peach? I asked Dee how happy they were with how the fruit had come through and she rattled on about how it was white peaches, not sweet juicy peaches, and it was brewed in collaboration with Masterchef winner, Tim Anderson, and basically I ought to consider shutting up because, like, y'know Tim Anderson... White peaches. Well I say I don't like the Emperor's new clothes.

    Sorry, Dee, I didn't mean to offend but you're no Burning Sky and that bloke off the telly, he knows nothing about beer. Or peaches.

    Aaaaannnnnd, relax

    Burning Sky definitely do the best Saisons, that's for sure. Cross Borders' Hedgerow Saison was pretty good though and had a nice floral note from the Honeysuckle (incidentally Mark Tranter from Burning Sky started out at Dark Star). I've also got an 80 Shilling (traditional Scottish dark beer) from Cross Borders which I'm really looking forward to trying...part of my latest haul from Valhalla's Goat in Glasgow. I also have a Fierce Mocha Very Big Moose (12% Porter:crazy::training:) ; I've had VBM before on draft so this should be a stoater!:addict:

    On the plus side, one of the guys at Partizan has a very nice looking Pearson single speed.

    Ok, new local just served me a rather tangy The Kernel Saison and a cask Siren Broken Dream. If anybody comes across a cask Broken Dream try it! It's excellentiest. IMG_20190406_190853.jpg IMG_20190406_193747.jpg

    trivia addendum - Broken Dream was awarded CAMRA Champion beer of 2018.

    Sunset Aggro beer.

    In the current spoons beer fest - in your local one possibly until tomorrow if you are very lucky.

    Brazilian.

    5.8 per cent - american IPA type.

    By some spooky wonderfulness that can only happen in the best of spoons I ended up at the bar next to a Brazilian and was able to recommend it to him.

    For The Purpose of Clarity by Wylam brewery in, Prestatyn of all places. Which shows that good beer is available everywhere if you look hard enough. Excellent

    My local Sainsbury’s had brew dog Elvis Juice at 90p a bottle. It would have been rude not to.

    Stopping in a swanky flop house this weekend, tried a Boss beer last night, from Swansea see, nice beer, bang tidy but the price was a bit of a rip, I was tamping!

    srw It's a bit more complicated than that...

    Has there ever been a less appropriately named beer?

    I get that you don't like "modern" cloudy, fruit infused beers but why not post about stuff you like instead?

    Broken Dream is one of my favourites:addict:! The Fierce VBM didn't disappoint at all and wears its 12% pretty lightly...another crazy beer from North of The Wall. Cross Borders' 80 Shilling is a much more sessionable 4% ish and a classic Heavy; youse couldnae put a bawhair between it and the Stewart 80 Shilling brewed just up the road in Loanhead.:cheers:
