Beer #1888 is a saison brewed by Renaissance in Marlborough, New Zealand. An unusual saison, yeasty of course but subtly spicy with a lemon and lime streak running through it. It’s slightly sour at times but also sweet with a…

Beer #938 is a black indian pale ale brewed by Renaissance in Marlborough, New Zealand. Very black IPA, bitter, very fruity, I thought, like a red wine (but without the winey taste). I couldn’t detect any chocolate or coffee flavors…
