This Pa brewery is rocking my world. Close my eyes and taste this, and I drift back to my time when I lived in Waterloo, Brussels. Label says 9.5% abv, but it’s tucked in nicely. Woody notes on the palate, with cardamom, cloves and licorice. Heart-warming as it slips down the hatch. Well done! — 12 days ago

Yes, @Dawn E. It’s where the final land battle took place. If you visit the museum there, you’d be forgiven for thinking that Napoleon won! Still, I enjoyed my time there... but the food and beers were to die for!

Weyerbacher Brewing Co.

Blithering Idiot Barleywine Ale

Medjool date color of reddish brown verging on ebon. Brief, solid, fluffy headmaster cameo, beige. Bowing slowly with brevity, leaving only a dark, inscrutable surface. Ripe bananas, and Ethiopian coffee, grilled and roasted beef, marinated in Port with edges of cracked black pepper. Fennel, rosemary and cocoa, raisins, cloves, ginger snaps all stirred in cast iron over slow flames of acanthus to make this dark story thick with candied deceits, smelling of dark chocolate delights. This one has sharp, sugary teeth of cubed ginger candy, lips of gingerbread, a tongue of dark brown sugar, caramel-chocolate, dark rum cake, eucalyptus, coffee liqueur, and sweet barbecue sauce before finishing with figgy treacle. Smooth and brooding; your destiny implied by its name. — a month ago

Great note

Va La Vineyards

La Prima Donna White Blend

Aromatic and fantastic. A white wine that has structure because it’s made in an orange style, with layers of tangerine, honey, and flowers. Wonderfully exotic and retains an oily mouthfeel and beautiful acidity. — a month ago

Va La Vineyards

Zafferano White Petit Manseng Blend

Exotic nose of saffron, flowers, and honey. Quite a full mouthfeel with enough acidity to carry a nice finish with some citrus rind. It’s unfortunately discontinued at the winery, this is a killer wine. — 22 days ago

Mahogany

This is a mid Atlantic all star red blend of a boatload of uncommon European grapes. A little pricey but well worth the experience. — 2 months ago

Va La Vineyards

Cedar Red Blend

The best Nebbiolo outside of Italy I’ve had. Aromatic and earthy, with wild mushrooms, cherries, flowers, cloves and cinnamon. The texture is just fantastic, velvety on the attack linearly giving way to bright cherry cola on the finish. Precise and linear, this is just a stellar wine. — a month ago

Another great beer. Born in PA. I paid $10 for a six-pack, which means this qualifies as a low-rent example.
