Deschites Mirror Mirror 2009

Deschites Mirror Mirror 2009

From Jer, this bottle escaped the 2009 Deschutes curse and didn't tuurn out sour, although it hasn't mellowed much.

Pike Entire 2009

Pike Entire 2009

Surprisingly it's not gone sour and actually tasted good. Pike surprises me this time. But not likely to stock up in the future.

Widmer Brothers Brrrbon

I'm not very familiar with the regular Brrr. This smells and tastes barrel aged, but not too strongly. It definitely tastes of winter.

Iron Horse 509

Iron Horse 509

With hops from Eastern WAs 509 area code, this is a "fresh local session beer." Not sure if I'm a fan. It is what it is--light, but with some extra hop aroma and flavor, but far from a hop bomb.
