To The Pint

Canebrake Louisana Wheat Ale

Jeremy - Chunky, sour. Seems that something is not quite right here. Funky off flavors. 2/10Gary - Crisp, refreshing, tastes like a wheat beer should. - 7/10Keith  - Has a layer of Louisiana mud in it. Funky taste that I can't get past. 4/10Rob - A little bit of sour in it, but to me that compliments it. Peps up the wheat. 8/10

Total Score: 5.25/10

Saint Arnold's Icon Sorachi Ace Dubbel

Jeremy - Nice malty aroma, very smooth for a higher alcohol brew. Not getting a lot of hops here, but I suspect they are more of a balancing factor to the sweet malt flavor. Spice flavor in the background. 7/10Gary - Looks good. Not getting anything especially appealing here. Getting rich malty carmel, but there's a off flavor; perhaps the hops? Probably would be better with different hops. 3/10Keith  - Not enough of the special Sorachi Ace hop for this darker beer. Blew their chance on this. As a Belgian is it drinkable. 6/10Rob - Something is off, almost like oil on water. Doesn't taste balanced. Nutmeg taste coming through doesn't fit. 3/10

Total Score: 4.75/10

Lagunitas Sucks! A 50% stake in Lagunitas has been bought by, of all companies, Heineken. InBev and Anheuser-Busch merging? This would mean one company would control 50% of the world's beer production.
