The North English Brown and BA Saison were my favorites, though they were all tasty :cheers:
Thanks!

I've been real AC/DC with brewing the last 6-8 months, either brewing nothing or making 20 gallons in a week.  I've slacked on making any IPA's and it makes me sad. 

I have a 15-gallon barrel going with a friend down here.  We did a BA Brett Saison first, a Flanders-ish (American Wild) Red, and now have a wheated golden ale in there with plans to give it peaches this summer when we find them cheap. 

I've dialed in my IPA base a little more, with the idea that I will keep messing with it because I can't leave well enough alone.  I also want to do a split 10-gallon batch with yeasts that give me a hazy east coast and a clean west coast off the same wort, for giggles.

I've got a 3-gallon, 12.8ish% RIS conditioning with plans to give it chilies, cinnamon, nibs to do one of those kind of stouts. 

I made a doppelbock a while back that took 3rd in competition in Chicago. 

I'm on a session beer kick right now, with 5 gallons of petit saison on, 10 gallons of hefeweizen that just went on, and 10 gallons of cream ale to go on next week. 

I'm back in the place where my desire to make beer exceeds my ability to consume what I make.  I need folks to come over and help.

I'm back at it again, after much time off.

The cream ale alluded to in the previous post was made,half got cascade dry hop, and consumed in a record 5 days for 10 gallons.  My friend Dwight has a big thirst. 

He and I made a grapefruit IPA using zest at flameout and more zest in secondary.  It is really damn good.

I made 20 gallons of wheat beer so far this summer, 15 of hefeweizen and 5 of American wheat that went onto some passion fruit concentrate to make a killer summer brew. 

This week I knocked out a North English Brown, a kettle soured berliner, and a gratzer. 

I need to have people over to drink down some kegs.

Passion fruit wheat sounds excellent :thumbup:

How did the petit saison turn out?

I know I just PM'd you that beer would be hard to bring in, but I'll try and bring those two at the least.

Add a Best Bitter and 10 gallons of Two Hearted clone IPA to the growing list.  Now I need to remember when I brewed the bitter.  I forgot to write it down.

Drinking the "AWR 3/16"... dry hopped wild ale? Super sour! :blink:

Reddish orange, crisp and puckering. reminds me of La Folie but more sour.
A little flinty minerality and brief sharp sour apple, sour grapes...those little tiny ones. 
Light and crisp, thirst quenching.  :thumbup:

Haven't had the AWR yet, but I can't see it being better than the Passionfruit Wheat so I'll declare that one the easy winner of this batch of brews you brought up. Petit Saison and my namesake Hefe were also quite delicious.

I hope you'll be surprised by the sour.  I really enjoy it.

Finally drank the Passionfruit Wheat over the weekend, and it was unanimously well received.
Petite Saison was light and mellow, it paired well with food. Nice work and thanks again! :cheers: :thumbup:

I suck at beerspotting.  I have slowed down on brewing.  I don't have many people coming over to drink much anymore.  It makes me sad.  I have a cream ale, a hoppy blonde, a vic secret IPA on tap now.  Everything else on tap is old and faded and makes me sad.

Beermosas?
I had some old beers gifted to me, and made short work of them with some lime and a pinch of salt.
