    DF178AFC-8615-4F92-9AF2-A8E9BF9F6D6D.jpeg This one has a couple years in my fridge. It has mellowed and has a surprising fruity note.


    Thank you to the kind BOTL who sent this my way.

    First is a 2 yr old Rumpkin, while finishing up some tiling. It was great:

    Then after having to pay for a new A.C. unit, I had to have a BA 1050. Always good:

    Left hand brewery Saison au miel. A farmhouse style ale with Colorado wildflower honey. Very tasty!

    Man that looks good. I still can't get over those IPA's. You and John have some badass beers up in your neck of the woods.

    I guess if you want to form your own opinion and not take my word for it, I wouldn’t be mad (taste is subjective after all). But....... Just bland and seriously subdued flavors. Watery mouthfeel with a sour vinegar-like finish only. If you buy this expecting to taste sour/fruity flavors based off the name like I did, don’t waste your money.

    I’ve had this from keg and from bottle. Maybe I know jack about what constitutes a good sour, but I really liked this. Maybe because it was so hot outside and it was cold, when I first tried this. I found it acidic, earthy, and way too easy to drink. It’s definitely not a thick beer. There are probably several other way better fruit beers.

    Could have been a dud Ceaser. I’ve got another and will let you know after I try. Of course with the style I don’t expect it to be like motor oil, but that was more of a statement of watery with no flavor other than a vinegar finish. I would use bitter and flavorless to describe it, more than a sour.

    Had this at my buddy's last night. It's a Filipino malt liquor type beer with an 8% ABV. It was actually pretty tastey for being a rather cheap beer.

    Mixing beer with Fireball?

    Boilermakers, amirite? Actually the fireballs were leftovers from a week previous and didn't make their way into any beers (that I'm aware of).

    This thread always makes me want to go straight from work to the beer world market (actual name of the store I get my beers from). Last time I went I got some more KBS and a 6 pack of Nitro milk stout (which tasted like they were previously frozen, that watery taste, first time I've had them so I don't know if that's their thing). I was looking for the BA 1050 and they had a 4 pack of cans for $23 bucks, does this sounds right to you gents? I mean, I payed $23.50 for the 4 KBS so I don't mind paying for it if it's worth it.

    If it's the BA 1050 (tall stovepipe cans) for $23, that's a bargain. I think they're $11-$13 or somewhere around that, here. If it's the regular 1050, then that's a little high, but you're paying NY taxes I'm guessing.

    I just googled them and it was the regular smaller 1050 cans, I just assumed it was the BA. And you are correct, NY taxes are killer.
