I normally enjoy weiss beers, but this one seemed to have a weird plasticky aftertaste. I was trying it with a friend of Austrian decent who knows his brews and he shared the sentiment. It's possible there was in issue with the tap lines, storage or something else.


Yeah, that doesn't sound like the Weihenstephaners I've enjoyed..
Did a brewery tour in San Diego this weekend with some friends, visited:
Iron Fist
Lost Abbey
Stone
Ballast Point
Green Flash

Good stuff at each one, the most interesting beers were the Oaked Arrogant Bastard at Stone, and Ten Commandments ale at Lost Abbey which had a crazy rosemary finish.
Coors light. While it wouldn't be in my top 50 (or more) choices, a couple of cans were pulled out of a neighbor's garage by him as we were shoveling snow. The nice gesture and sports banter made it fairly tasty! Stayed real cold in a pile of snow, too...

You are being very kind this morning, wiml. Wink
All on tap:

* Avery Karma
* Avery DuganA
* Victory Yakima Glory

The Karma was a pleasant Belgium style ale. Little light on the finish but a good nose and palate otherwise.

The DuganA was a hopped up, kind of goofy flavor profile for my palate. Lots of IBU with a oddish Pineapple taste mixed in.

The Glory was a pleasant strong ale with good weight on the palate and finish but not necessarily something I'll seek out again.
Yesterday all on tap:

* Maui Mana Wheat
* Petrus Winterbeer
* 512 Cascabel Cream Stout

I guess I'll give the edge to the Maui Mana Wheat closely followed by the 512 Cascabel Cream Stout, mostly because of the "interesting" factor of the Cascabel. I can't recall ever having a beer with a distinct chile aroma, flavor and slow burn. Thought the Petrus just had an odd flavor profile. Too sour cherry like.

Nice stuff!


You guys liked this much more than I did. I had it back in December and I thought it was way too sugary sweet. My note back on page 61 of this thread was "never again". Yuck.
Yesterday:

* Shiner Spring Ale Dortmunder Style (tap)
* Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye IPA (tap)
* Full Sail Session Black (bottle)

The Shiner was fairly light and refreshing. Bit of a clipped finish. The Sierra Nevada was a hoppy, freshly cut coastal hay field. The Full Session was a full bodied, chocolately dark lager than can stand up to the best of Stouts and Porters.
