    Not a huge fan of this beer - it seems a bit hard for a belgian beer. Especially given Blue Moon's ability to really encompass the wheat beer spectrum - I'm not sure this is my favorite one they have produced thus far.

    I think this beer is pretty good. The raspberry doesn't really overwhelm the palate - that being said, I think it may be a bit too sweet for others.

    I would recommend this beer in general to those who like the sweeter beers. IPA lovers beware - not the beer for you.

    A relatively trendy place in the heart of Bethesda, Union Jacks has become a place where when anyone comes home or wants to party in Bethesda, its one of three acceptable places to party.

    In general, their beer selection is pretty week - BUT - they do have their own Brew that is always 2 bucks. Most nights they have competitive drink specials.

    Beware though, remember not to drink and drive as cops regularly park outside of the car park down the street and catch those who attempt to break the law.

    This is one of my favorite beers. I was sold at the North Carolina Beer Festival in 2008 where I actually drank the beer with the brewmaster. This has a very different feel than traditional "fruity" beers.

    The light blueberry flavor is an afterthought when you really sip on this beer. I have regularly switched over other non-believers when they see this beer on the list. It regularly comes in bottles and is probably the best way to drink it. It is refreshing and not heavy at all.

    This beer reminds me of Sierra Nevada. It is a great IPA that has a bite after you drink it. As with all IPAs, it definitely takes some getting used to.

    I wouldn't drink a Lager right after (I made that mistake and had to immediately switch back to Doggie Style). Besides being a tasty beer - it has probably one of the best names around. Great craft brew.
