    Tonight's beer. I certainly like it more than the last three Birthday Suits I've had, although those probably sat longer than they should've. Definitely get som plum, sour, and sweet flavors.

    Gave the Hanssens to my brother's girlfriend... She squeezes fresh lemon juice over everything she eats at dinner... Then sucks the leftover juice out... Fair to say she likes sour stuff... :dozingoff:

    So yeah: Cuvee de Tomme... Massively intruiging beer... Despite me hating raisins... It's so sour it's making me sweat though... :happy:

    Good, but I'm guessing sitting for a few weeks did it no favors.

    Had a few beers yesterday at the closing event of the Berlin Beer Week at the location of the new Stone Brewing brewery (opening in April).
    Double Bastard is pretty great.
    Didn't reall enjoy the Enjoy By IPA (15.07. I think). Had too much of this acidity which I'm not too big a fan of in IPAs. Given the opportunity, I'll definitely give it another try though (since I suspect my tastebuds were rebelling against IPA acidity).
    Had some Modern Times IPA, also too sour.
    Some The Bruery Saison Rue which tasted pretty good but I wasn't in the mood for it. Like a saison blended with apple juice. Also, I think I have a full bottle at home.
    Then had a bunch of Pliny the Elder. Bottled 4 weeks ago. Super hyped when I saw it. It's very nice, nicely balanced aside from a bit too harsh acidity (though at this point I'm certain that my tastebuds were having an off day). No Blind Pig though.
    Oh, also had some Vagabund Salted Lime Wit/Gose. Nice.
    Some Pils from Lambrate. Wasn't very good.

    Anyway, nice location. Really looking forward to the opening event.

    i'm not a big fan of the original recipe. it's a little too dank and malty for my taste. one month they did a one off version with nelson and amarillo that was fantastic. don't quite understand the hype for that one. every month it gets crazier. used to be available on draft for a week and now it's gone within hours

    Didn't get to try the Nelson and Amarillo version. I'm pretty partial to the original, but I had a decent amount of that, and it was also much fresher, than this High Point. Hopefully Block 15's new production facility will ease some of the craziness. It should be up and running in the near future; and I thought I'd heard about canned Sticky Hands.

    Some other recents:

    This was pretty nice:

    A bit sharp, very carbonated:

    Interesting. Not beer, I know, but the dry hopping certainly made it different:

    Still not beer, but also not drinkable. Dumped this one out:

    This was the alternative. Fruity and tart, very nice:
