Stillwater Artisanal Ales

Extra Dry

Ron R
9.1

Hailing from CT, this is a flyweight IPA, with a subtle sake twist. It’s dry, clean and light on its feet. At 4.2% abv, it makes for a refreshing add to my repertoire. — 5 months ago

Peeps, I made a yuzu sake bomb with this stuff, and I can’t say how damn good it was. I’ll repost later.

Craftsman Cuvée Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2017

Still loving this Pinot Noir! It’s smooth, elegant and the juicy ripe berries make it bright and easy to drink. — 2 months ago

Cantillon Brewery

Bruocsella 1900 Grand Cru Organic Lambic Ale 2021

Vintage Lambic “which has matured for three years in oakwood barrels and has been selected for its exceptional colour, taste and flavour.”
“Powerful yet elegant, Bruocsella can be considered the missing link between the worlds of wine and beer. Since there is no secondary fermentation in the bottle Bruocsella is a flat, non-sparkling beer.”
“This aristocratic beer is to our national beer patrimony what Mouton-Rotschild, Petrus or Romanée-Conti are to the wines.”

apples, dried apricot, candied ginger, honey, soft cheese rind

Cantillon fills the bottom shelf of our wine cooler, but I don't have that bottle.

Laetitia

Les Galets Pinot Noir

Wonderfully perfumed and rich eight year-old Central Coast Pinot Noir, with fruit, acid, tannins and earth in harmonious balance. Got better as the night went on, and the leftover half bottle the next day was great—soft and approachable yet complex and delicious interesting. Rather Old World, I would say. Enjoyed the 2014 vintage with Livarot cheese and an artisanal country loaf. Magnifique! — 2 months ago

Grimm Artisanal Ales

Double Negative Imperial Stout 2021

Very good imperial stout. Excellent flavors and some dried cherry with bitter chocolate at the end cleanse the palate. Not on the same level as Jackie O’s or perennial or prairie. — 7 months ago
