Brewery Ommegang

Neon Neon Rainbows Hazy Double IPA

Dark as muddied apricot juice. Slick and unstable head whisking away in oily retreat, with rapid lacings of unraveling ghost smokes turning will-o-the-wisp. Apricot-pineapple with a sweet kerosene note. Bananas and Honeycomb cereal. Lime pith and soursop secondary smells. Plantains dried at medium ripeness, lemon pith, and tangerine threads on the palate. Connecticut tobacco leaf. Chalky lemon. There is such an interesting dichotomy between the malt caramel notes initially, and the overwhelming, cancelling pithy citrus, which obnubilates the former. Kumquat and starfruit combine on the finish with lemon tart candy and grapefruit reduction. .

Winemaker's Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2020

Very surprised with this wine from Aldi. I’m normally a red drinker but began to pair my wine with dinner and this went swimmingly with a laksa. Very very smooth and easy to drink. — 12 days ago


Kevin Judd Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Wonderful as always! Grapefruit, lemon, kiwifruit, hints of tropical fruits, big acidity, grass & minerals. Balance is spot on! — 5 days ago

@Dawn E. Just how I like my Sauv Blanc!

White Springs Vineyard Dry Riesling 2017

These are night 2 notes. On night 1 it was showing a lot of fragrance but was shy on the palate. Just the opposite on night 2: nose shows shy but pure notes of crisp apple, underripe peach, and slatey minerality. But it’s got nice roundness and intensity in the mouth, with a nice, user-friendly balance of minerality and fruit. Dry, but not in a demanding way. Very nice. (Thanks to my brother for this gift bottle!) — 15 hours ago

Nautilus Estate

Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

From the Haro-Lumia Taster’s Dozen. Subtle, caressing, yet bursting with melon, citrus, and lime. Mouthwatering and leaves you wanting more. Amazing effort. A WS Top 100 and well deserved. — 4 days ago

Floral Terranes

Suburban Moraines Barrel Fermented Still Cider

Lean, mean, crisp apple and lemon oil, fresh herbs, intensely marine-influenced minerality and salinity. Lovely Chenin-like wooliness and energizing acid on the palate. Bravo to my friend @Erik Longabardi on this profound expression of Long Island history and terroir. — 17 days ago

Thank you for this note! The 2019 version is I think an even better effort that it’s 2018! Glad it’s holding up well!

Bloomer Creek Vineyard

Skin Fermented Pet Nat Gewürztraminer 2019

Finally getting to open up my favorite bottle from Bloomer Creek. It’s the last I have from this past summer season.

Like rose syrup, bee pollen, and sage. Absolutely lovely bouquet.

Effervescence, acidity, honey, sage, roses. Just a wonderful wine. Love it so.

Sixpoint Brewery

Bengali Tiger IPA

Orange amber, orange blossom and orange taste for orange season. White-beige head with vinous lacing. Blood orange, plums, caramel nougat, smells of grapefruit on the grill, lemons too. Belgian malt echoes, nutritional yeast, candied orange, orange zest, marmalade, caramel and carrot bread. Easy drinker, but depth is there, and delightful interplay of sweet and citrus! Really thoughtful ipa. .
