All you review now is Hill Farmstead and Crooked Stave! Said one of my readers via email. Yeah and call it laziness or complain about homerism or the fact that this blog has gone down hill but honestly I drink mostly local beers now or stuff I buy via reserve societies. Therefore, you’re mostly going to see posts about Hill Farmstead, Bruery or Crooked Stave. Although, I’ll add that I did just recently do 2 trades, one for some De Garde beers and another for some Jester King. I’ll be reviewing those soon so I promise the quality here is gonna get better soon….let’s tear into Vermont Flabaer..splitting 500ML bottles 4 ways like a boss.

Leaves a long lasting taste in my mouth. Grabbed a single bottle at HFS last week. Split 4 ways with some local friends. Could have solo’d this one.
A – Totally purple lovely beauty. 1 finger white head with pink hues that’s fades to a thin line. Some blueberry chunks.
S – Nose is bright and fruity. Lots of tart and a touch of acidic.
T – Sticky chewy mouthfeel. Sticks to the teeth a bit very jammy but not at all sweet. Tannic oaky grape skin and pineapple. Blueberry is really strong.
M – lingering blueberry, full carbonation, almost velvety.
O – Great beer. I still prefer regular Flora but this is a nice fresh take on the beer and one I look forward to trying again.
