Really tart and busting with that oak barrel flavor. Very tasty. The raspberries and oranges are there but not super heavy. 𝐁𝐨𝐭𝐭𝐥𝐞 𝐀𝐫𝐭: The label is one of those thick and textured labels. The artwork works for the bottle. 𝐃𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐤𝐚𝐠𝐞: No date on bottle

𝐁𝐫𝐞𝐰𝐞𝐫𝐲: Fox Farm Brewing – Salem, CT
𝐁𝐫𝐞𝐰𝐞𝐫𝐲 𝐈𝐆: @foxfarmbeer
𝐍𝐨𝐭𝐞𝐬: It’s got the funk and some slight barrel flavor. I get some apple notes that I pick up on mostly. Not a ton of oak barrel but some. Very smooth and not overly tart or acidic. Very enjoyable brew. I could drink this all day.
𝐁𝐨𝐭𝐭𝐥𝐞 𝐀𝐫𝐭: Simple and classy.

Brewery: Tired Hands Brewing Company – Ardmore, PA

Notes: Great Saison with that wonderful oak barrel aged flavor.
Bottle art: Nice and classy art. It took me a minute to see the Branches in the design but really dig it.
Drinkage: Brewed in Feb 18, bottled in Aug 18 and drank 11 months later.
Beer: Dog Ate My Homework
Brewery: Brouwerij West – San Pedro, CA
Brewery IG: @BrouwerijWest
Notes: Light and fruity but kinda too thin. I think it would have been a bit better with more thickness. Looking forward to more from Brouwerij West.
Can art: I like it with the two headed lion.
Drinkage: Just over two months. Maybe my rating would have changed with a fresher can…
Style: Saison / Farmhouse
Brewery: Ecliptic Brewing – Portland, OR and Brooklyn Brewery – Brooklyn, NY
Brewery IG: @eclipticbrewing and @brooklynbrewery
Notes: Bright and citrusy with not much sour or tartness. Very enjoyable and would be a great go to on a hot day. The tangerine stands out. It’s kinda crazy that this is my first review of Ecliptic or Brooklyn. I’ve drank plenty of Brooklyn and a ton of Ecliptic. Great to see this collaboration.
Bottle art : I really dig it. Spacy, colorful, reflective… What’s not too like.
Drinkage: No date on bottle.
