14 September 2022. At Old Irving Brewing, Chicago. Shared with the lovely Anke!

Hazy ochre, thin, off-white head. Aroma of diesel, band-aid, medicine, overripe mango & peach. Taste has sweet ripe melon, banana & peach next to bitter, dank weed, onion & diesel. Floral hoppy finish, somewhat herbal, medicinal, ethereal almost; dash of warming gin-like alcohol. Medium body, oily texture, average carbonation. Bit too medicinal, and heavy to drink, but nice to try.

Clear golden, thinning, white head. Aroma of pear, apple, mango, peanut, melon, yeast. Taste has sweetish apple & melon over a dry-biscuity, bready malt base with yeasty notes. Piney hoppy finish, resinous, yeasty & dry. Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation. Lacking in complexity.

Hazy yellow, thinning head. Aroma of unripe peach, plum, apricot, kiwi, old mandarin, vague dust. Taste has sour peach & kiwi, sweetish plum over a wheaty, yoghurty malt base. Tart, yellow-fruity finish, bit lemon-acidic. Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation. Okay even though there’s something unfresh about it.

Hazy yellow, thin, foamy, off-white head. Aroma of ripe mango, peach, passion fruit, cheese, dough. Taste has sweet mellow mango & peach; sourish citrus zest and bitter grapefruit over a doughy malt base. Floral hoppy finish, bit dank & spicy, mostly mellow mango & stonefruit. Medium body, slick texture, average carbonation. Bit too mellow but mango works well still.

Clear golden, thin, white head. Aroma of 'Fruittella' candy (strawberry, lemon), honey, fruit cake, yoghurt, lemon peel.

Weird combination but works okay.

Can courtesy of Jimi. Thanks bro! Pours a pitch black with a finger of dark tan head that lingers. Big flaked coconut aromas on the nose with warming bourbon and cacao nib aromas. More of the same on the palate....oak, coconut, boubon and dark chocolate abound. My favorite of the variants this year. Great stuff.
