I don’t know how many things are in the world that are key Lime flavored, but Birdsong Brewing has made one called Key Lime Kölsch, 4.3% at 40 IBU (International Bittering Units). This is a seasonal beer offed late summer. It’s has Key Limes and Vanilla with malts such as 2-Row, Dextrin, Flaked Oats, and Branch malt. It also has El Dorado hops. This Kölsch pours an orange color with a thin one finger fizzy clear white head. It quickly fades. The aroma is sweet with a citrus lime. The flavor is sweet from the lime upfront and then you get a sweet graham cracker like flavor with a bit of vanilla toward the back of your mouth. The mouthfeel is light. It finish like a piece of Key Lime pie. That same finish carries on over to the aftertaste and does linger for just a second. This beer grew on me. The more I drank the more I enjoyed it. I’d give Birdsong Brewing Co. Key Lime Kölsch a B. I was very similar to Key Lime pie, which I like and if you like it too then this beer is for you! Please be kind, be safe, and please enjoy responsibly! Cheers!

The mouthfeel is thick and juicy. This IPA finishes with a bittersweet note that has a light hoppy kick at the very end. This Burial Beer has a limey aftertaste with hoppy notes. This beer doesn’t really show much of the said coconut. The lime is much more present along with the bitterness and the hops. Burial Beer Co. & Cloudwater Brew Co. A Canvas of Fragmented Memories IPA gets a C+ from me. it comes to the fact that the coconut is not so present and the lime clashes a tiny bit with the hoppy flavors, but it not bad. It’s just a bit above average. I don’t think I would go back for Burial Beer Co. & Cloudwater Brew Co. A Canvas of Fragmented Memories IPA right away but it I will not be staying away from it. Please be kind, be safe, and enjoy responsibly!
I am not the biggest fan of blueberry ales. This is Georgia Beer Co. Blueberry Field Party Blonde Ale, 5% ABV. This is the last of the verity of Field Party Blonde Ales I have. This particular Field Party beer pours a golden color with a one finger fizzy white head that fades real quick. The aroma is big sweet fresh blueberries. The blueberries pretty much mask any other notes. The taste is sweet with blueberries and a very little bready note. The mouthfeel is light. The aftertaste is blueberry with little bits of bready notes. The aftertaste is like container that had blueberries left in it. There is a sweetness to the aftertaste but it not very strong. Georgia Beer Co. Blueberry Field Party Blonde Ale wasn’t so bad. I’d say its a B-. It didn’t taste of artificial blueberries like some blueberry beers. But it hasn’t changes how I feel about blueberry ales. I mean a stout with blueberries is okay, but not in anyother styles. I would go for this again soon, but not too soon. Please be kind, be safe, and enjoy responsibly! Cheers!

The chocolate clashes a little with the tart fruity flavors but nothing terrible here. This beer isn’t one that you can more than probably two pints of before it becomes too much. But it was interesting. Please be kind, be safe, and enjoy responsibly! Cheers!

Edmund’s Oast Brewing Company Basket of Flowers, 5% ABV is Belgian style wheat brewed in Charleston, South Carolina with oranges and rosebuds. This beer sounded like it would be interesting, so I picked up a four-pack. This beer pours a bright yellow cloudy color with a one and a quarter white head that fades steadily. The nose is floral with orange sweetness There is a bitter tart note in there as well that gives off slight pale ale vibes. The flavor is sweet with some tart orange floral notes with a bit of wheat. Yes, I did get a bit of bitterness, but not as pronounced as it is on the nose. This Edmund’s Oast beer finish with a hit of a hoppy note but sweet.

I give Edmund’s Oast Brewing Company Basket of Flowers a low C-. The bit of bitterness I found was a surprise but not in a good way and it clashing a bit with the floral notes kind of hold it back. I wouldn’t recommend Edmund’s Oast Brewing Company Basket of Flowers. But I do find Edmund’s Oast Brewing Company to brew good beers not this one though. Please be kind, stay safe, and enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
I am a sucker for blood orange. So when I saw Wilmington Brewing Company Tropical Frightening, 10% ABV, I had to get it. This is an imperial IPA with blood orange and raspberries. This big IPA pours a reddish blood orange color with a two-finger white head with great retention. It has a nice fruity sweetness from the blood orange faint raspberry. There is a little bitter hoppy note on the aroma too. The taste is sweet with blood orange and light raspberry. I also found a lithe bitter hoppy flavor that was masked by the fruity flavors, but it is there. The fruit flavors are on the thinker side but the mouthfeel has a medium fruity feel to it. Topical Frightening finishes with a fruity touch of blood orangey raspberry with a hint of bitterness. The aftertaste is blood orange sweet with bits of faint hop bitterness. I feel that the blood orange does give it a bittersweet flavor, and the raspberry keeps that from becoming too bitter and gives the sweetness a slight boost. Overall I liked Wilmington Brewing company Tropical Frightening, and I give it an A-. The label said raspberry and I got just a tiny bit. That is the only gripe I have with this imperial IPA. It’s worth a try. Please be kind, stay safe and enjoy responsibly! Cheers!
