De Garde The Little Peach 3.8  
De Garde Brewing Tillamook, Oregon
Bottle - Well done Perfumy peach. Clearish light gold with a decent white head. Sour peach and a nice light dry sour finish. Solid.

Buxton Enkel 3.2  
Buxton Buxton, Derbyshire
Tap. Hazy dark yellow with small white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, yeast, hop and spices. Flavour is malt, yeast, medium sweet, spices, hop and a little bitter.

De Garde / Baird & Dewar Farmhouse Cider The Law of Motion 3.7  
De Garde Brewing Tillamook, Oregon
Poured from a 750 ml bottle. Aroma is rather fruity with some apple and pear notes as well as some lighter citrus and pineapple. Hints of tropical fruit and apricot. Light green grape notes with some light oak and tannins. Light herbal and floral phenolics. Pours a very clear, slightly dull, yellow gold with a large, pillowy, frothy white head that recedes quite quickly and disappears. No lacing or legs. Flavor has a light sweetness with a moderate acidity. Light bitterness and oak notes with some lighter tannins. Medium light apple.and pear notes with lighter lemon, pineapple and underripe apricot. Faint herbal phenolics. Medium light water notes. Mouthfeel is light bodied with high carbonation. Low astringency and low alcohol warmth. Overall, it's decent but the cider thinned and dried the beer out a bit too much for my taste. Good, complex fruit notes with some light phenolics and balanced oak notes.

De Garde The Little Peach 3.8  
De Garde Brewing Tillamook, Oregon
Hazy, blonde, and a very thin head. Quite a bit of peach, nice oak character. Tart, nice peach character, and a fair bit of barrel in the finish. Lots of tannins. Nice balance.

Shipyard Export 3.0  
Shipyard Brewing Company Portland, Maine
Bottle from the brewery in Portland. Pours a clean golden colour with a frothy warm cap, decent lasting with minimal lacing. Sweet nose giving some fruitiness, ending up showing cereal grains. The taste has the cereal again, with caramel notes and hops that seem a little out of place for this one. Does get a little better and does get bitter. OK, not that much, but a decent dry finish occurs. Not a bad golden ale.

Belching Beaver Good Morning Beautiful 3.6  
Belching Beaver Vista, California
Bottle - Chocolate, maple and coconut. Deep brown with a beige head. Coconut and chocolate with some maple sweetness. Not much coffee for me.

Belching Beaver Good Morning Beautiful 3.4  
Belching Beaver Vista, California
Bottle. Medium brown. On the nose, nutty coffee, I mean that really comes across like peanuts, mellow coconut (toasted, I guess), and yeah, a little bit of maple. This has medium body, nutty again, coconut... I mean all the elements are there. But definitely the base is kind of light, and doesn't have the residual sugars that make the pastry thing so effective in stronger stouts.

Baladin Terre Riserva Teo Musso 3.7  
Le Baladin Piozzo, Italy
@Zürich Bier Festival; 2014 vintage, 12% - pours a hazy copper-brown beer with no head retention; aroma of plum, bread and soy sauce; no carbonation, fairly sweet, vinous with a finish of caramel, plums and warming alcohol notes

Ballast Point Aloha Sculpin 3.5  
Bottle from the south SLC downtown liquor store while walking back from Beer Bar. Overall a unique IPA with high bitterness. I didn't really get any specific tropical notes but I did like the unique yeast variant and accents. It almost seemed more Belgian inspired to me but what to I know. Enjoyable.

Trillium Congress Street IPA - Double Dry Hopped 3.9  
Trillium Brewing Company Boston, Massachusetts
Can from the Boston shop. Pours opaque gold with a creamy white head. Tastes like resin, grapefruit hops, lemon, orange, biscuit malt, and grass. Medium body and low/medium carbonation. Smells like orange, grapefruit hops, lemon, and biscuit malt.

Alchemist The Crusher 3.7  
The Alchemist Stowe, Vermont
Can from the brewery. Pours hazy golden amber with a bubbly off white head. Tastes like juicy grapefruit hops, resin, cookie and biscuit malt, some orange, and faint booze. Medium body and low/medium carbonation. Smells like resin, grapefruit hops, cookie malt, and faint booze.

Rodenbach Grand Cru 4.1  
Brouwerij Rodenbach (Palm) Roeselare, Belgium
From bottle, this is a dark mahogany pour with a small beige head. Rising carbonation causes the head to swirl a bit in the glass. Big fruity aroma and taste. Sweet but not syrupy. Sour. Delicious. Medium mouthfeel. No real hop bitterness to note, just a nice, wonderful, fruity Flanders red.

Stone I'm Peach Double IPA 3.7  
Stone Brewing Escondido, California
I think i like peach beers more than peaches. This has a nice identifiable peach flavor. Good stuff.

Evil Twin Bushido 3.0  
Evil Twin Brewing Brooklyn, New York
Can - Bread and chilli. Clearish pale gold with almost no head. Lightly soured and chilli heat. Not very tasty.

West Coast Eclipse 3.0  
West Coast Cider Co. Port Coquitlam, British Columbia
Bottle - Pure Asian apple pear. Clear gold with a small white head. Sweetness and the pear really hits hard in the finish. So much sweet pear it seems almost artificial.
