I'm not really sure what to think about a barrel aged quad from Black Oak. Hopefully it's awesome. If anyone tries it soon, please post your thoughts.

It's supposed to be a liederhosen gift pack for Oktoberfest but it's hard to tell from that picture. Hope the one on the shelves here looks better than that...

Really, it comes with singing pants? :)

Would like to try the Allgauer Ökobier Helles, but the Höss Doppel Hirsch just reminds me how much we are missing Weltenburger Asam-Bock.

The Höss Holzar-Bier was fine but forgettable. Hmm... although still with singing pants AND a new Höss beer...

I had a "masse" of the Allgauer Fest bier last week in Germany. It's not memorable. I'm assuming this is the same.

I believe Ökologisch just means ecologic/organic - it's a Dortmunder/Helles, not an Oktoberfest/Märzen. You had this one? Oh well.

(The Holzar-Bier's a Zwickel/Kellerbier.)

For the Fest, I would recommend the newly-bottled Creemore Oktoberfest over most things I've tried, and I have some very nice Firestone Walker Oak and Victory Fest on hand. Prost!

I tried it at their ABV event last thursday. I was kind of disappointed. It was still good, but a bit overhyped. I still gave it a 4/5. I'd still pick up a couple, maybe cellar a few as well.

Oh baby, let's hope the Dubbel doesn't sail over the Bermuda Triangle like Orval.
