No real order here or connection. We just open things that need to be opened and rate them. Nice evening!
The Chronology Old Ale was really good. It’s about what I expected. 6 Months, very hot, boozy, no barrel. 24, raisin, fig, way too cloying sweet and a ton of wood. 12/18 were pretty close but I went with 18. I love Belgian style beers and dark fruit always gets me to bump that score up a bit.
John comes to VT twice a year to grab his Collected Works Beers. We had a few really great items on Thursday:
Anytime Leighton comes in from England, we have to get together and here are a few beers we enjoyed a few weeks ago:
Kurt from Belgium in A Box sent us 5 boxes of beer. Heather and I pretty much split this haul evenly though it all goes to the same beer cellar. Lots of fantastic Lambic to age and enjoy over the coming decade:
Great Summer, lots of travel, home improvements and life events that ultimately restricted how much I could spend on beer. I further restricted the amount of money I spent on beer that wasn’t Hill Farmstead or Lambic. I think I only did 3 beer trades all Summer.
