    Pretty nice if I do say so. Good citrus flavor and aroma with a nice dry finish. At 5.2%ABV you can knock back several without getting too out of hand. 5 gallons is going pretty quickly...just tapped last week and only have about 2 gallons left.

    Just got back from Munich. I'll take our craft brews but, for what they brew, they are incredible. I visited the Weihenstephaner brewery - the oldest brewery in the world - and their beers were incredible!

    Beer doesn't taste much better than when you're kicked back drinking one in front of the glockenspiel in Marienplatz.

    Nice set up. 3 gallons in a week is solid consumption too! Lol.

    I saw this yesterday too. Kind of funny, I just got a few bottles sent to me. I'm glad I can enjoy them now without having to worry about when I'll get more.

    Yeah. Apparently the same distributor picked up a few more breweries too, but I think it's under wraps. Shaping up for a great year for Florida so far.

    This is an amazing thread, Strange. Plenty of beer research right here. Having a Sierra Nevada Ruthless Rye in preparation of the Gators' beat-down of the Vollies. Go Gators!

    Picked up a six pack of Three Floyds Zombie Dust this afternoon. Couldn't find it anywhere for almost a month. Drank two tonight. Saving two for the weekend and the rest for my tasting next week. Very hoppy for the alcohol content. It's a great session beer for hop lovers, or maybe a great beer for a multi-course Asian or Mexican dinner.

    Really special beer. Grab it if you see it. It's $11.99 for a six up here. Well worth it, but it can go fast if you don't restrain yourself.

    Got some of that cellared. Every time I see that photo in this thread, I'm tempted to throw a couple in the fridge and drink them the following night.

    It's definitely my favorite beer under 10% ABV. My all time favorites are strong beers. Current favorite is probably DFH Burton Baton.
