Liliko’i Kepolo Witbier: 6.0 – Ive likely not had many beers where passion fruit is the main taste, and while I’ve likely had it as part in other beers I can agree with the concept. However because this is a flavored beer I can’t get picky with the niche and have to rate this against all flavored beers in which case this isn’t super stellar. It’s certainly quite good though.
Price Average: Liliko’i Kepolo Witbier $11 for 4-pack
Maredsous 6 Blond Ale: 7.0 – It’s definitely an incredibly complex beer, even more so for being an abbey blonde ale instead of a quad or tripel. That aspect though might be what kills it, because while it has complexity it lacks the depth and power you would hope it to have, that alone would take it from an admittedly great level into near-perfection.
Price Average: Maredsous 6 Blond Ale $12
We are continuing this (likely extended) month of various whiskies, this time going with a scotch. However instead of this week being some single malt that I either enjoy immensely or wish I had never met – we are doing a blend I picked up way back when I was in the UK. (Damn it’s been 4 months already). I got this because it was cheap, and I knew it wasn’t a scotch I could take my time with having less than a week.
Latte Stout: 4.0 – It’s a kinda tart coffee I don’t really like it and I think know it would only be good with like a raspberry dessert which would kill me (allergic). It’s certainly a distinctive beer, but I’m not sure where the latte comes in.
Price Average: Latte Stout $6 (Draft)
Wachusett New England Lager: 5.0 – That is actually a fairly solid Lager bit it misses the whole defining characteristic of their company which sucks. It’s like they did this as a checklist item of – well guess we should have a lager at this point.
Price Average: Wachusett New England Lager $8 for 6-pack
Continuing our whiskey coverage this time we break into something new that we’ve tried before, and are now comfortable in reviewing. Moonshine or white whiskey is quite simply all whiskey before it’s been thrown into some burnt wood for a few months or years. This is also our third time looking at Bully Boy, this time instead of the aged whiskey, or the clear vodka spirit we have gone for the middle of the two with the unaged white whiskey. It has more of the wheat that you would want in the whiskey, but has some parallels to the cream of the vodka.
Righteous Stave Red Ale: 4.0 – Not a huge fan as its really just a basic over hopped pale ale. It says red, but there’s a real lack of nice tartness here that is overshadowed via making it too hoppy. Likely a result of being an exclusive beer for a Boston-area bar chain.
Price Average: Righteous Stave Red Ale $9
