While in Connecticut, Shane picked up a bottle of the Captain Lawrence Golden Delicious; a Apple Brandy barrel aged Belgian-style Tripel. Coming in at a rather massive 12% ABV, expect notes of booze, brandy, apple skins, Belgian yeast and candied sugar.

The Bruery is back with their Tart of Darkness, a spontaneously fermented Stout aged in spent Black Tuesday oak barrels. At only 5.60% ABV, a rather low ABV for these guys to bottle, Tart of Darkness delivers many initial robust, malty stout/porter qualities with the fruity tartness you’ve come to love from sour American Wild Ales.
The fall chill is finally setting to set in up in the Northeast. It is a brisk 50 degrees in the air and the pumpkins are everywhere. I recently grabbed a mixed six-pack of some autumn seasonals. One of the beers that caught my eye was the newly designed label of Flying Fish’s OktoberFish.
Summer may be coming to a close, but that doesn’t mean that it’s time to put the Wheat beers away. I have enjoyed a few offerings from Maui Brewing in the past so I have high hopes for the Mana Wheat, especially since it’s made with pineapple juice. I’m thinking that alone should prove to be quite tasty.
