At this point in the afternoon
I was less
Than
To be desired
The taproom was occupied
Shoes swarmed the linoleum as cockroaches do
Not crowded
But certainly busy
The wait
Staff
Were courteous
But
When
Beer
Is
Free
Everyone seems courteous
The flights
Gratis,
I descended
Into
A
Melange
Of gratification and straight up
Indignation
Upon my fourth flight, my bartender and I discussed the Ghoulschip.
Arguably,
It was a
M isstake
And
She
Knew it
“So they put the house yeast in the batch, but it
Was unexpectedly
Exposed
To the wild
Yeast in the
Air”

 

 

Spooooooooooooooookkkkkky

 

We put our noses upon our respective glasses (seriously, who talks like this?)

“Aromas reminiscent of green apples, sharp cheese, slight caramel, wet leaves, kohlrabi, tartness somewhere between a lemon and a lime.” She’s leading me on

Rolling my eyes

Take a sip; upfront—lemony citrus stings upon the tip of the tongue, then comes a sour funk marrying a Danish blue cheese and Camembert or brie. It’s salty. A toasty sweetness follows. (This is probably the toasted pumpkin seeds and the pumpkin, itself—I thought to myself) “Oak-i-ness” pokes through towards the back end, and then dryness emerges. Vanilla flavors develop with tart cherries as the flavor begins to dissipate.

Blueberry aftertaste.

More like Boo Berry

Christ…
Honestly

“So technically,
It’s a fuck-up
Right?”

Dismissively
And
Inquisitively

She looked at me, to the bar, to the patrons, and walked away.

Yeah,

Total fuck up.

 

 

 

Happy Halloween.

 

Don’t die or whatever.
