Untappd Catchup

If not for all these new badges I imagine I'd be on track with these Untappd reviews... But not to be so here is my third Untappd Catchup on Beer O'Clock Australia. And inevitably there will be more to come...

Regular readers will know I'm not a cider drinker by any means. Lizzie was drinking Truffler Orchard Pig Cider and recommended I have a go as she thought it tasted like the beer. I ended up finishing about half the bottle and bought some more. Anyway this check-in earned me God Save the Queen (Level 8)

The Pucker Up badge is awarded for drinking sour beers. It's another one that has recently been leveled and so my check-in of Boatrocker's Mitte got me this badge. I had it on tap at the Gertrude Hotel and have to say it was very impressive! It's a Berliner Weiss aged in champagne barrels and definitely worth a shot if you come across it.

I managed to get my hands on some very fresh Stone Ruination and it was amazing! It's one of my absolute favourite American IPA's and thankfully it gained me my Land of the Free (Level 4) badge. If you can get your hands on a 6-pack of these, call me and I'll come over and help you drink them; they're amazing!

The next beer I'm going to discuss is Saison Dupont. It's one of the world's premier saisons and has an amazing distribution network for a beer still brewed on a working farm in Belgium. Not only is this a great example of one of the most authentic beer styles out there, the check-in added two badges to my arsenal; Belgian Holiday (Level 6) and the Coast to Coast Toast 2013. To get the Coast to Coast Toast badge simply check-in to one of these beers before December 1st.

I was somewhat thankful when Hercules from Great Divide came along and knocked over the Sky's the Limit badge. I felt this badge had been designed for the Imperial Stout connoisseur and I think that the other 4 beers that I consumed to get this badge were all Imperial Stouts. To get this badge you need to check-in 5 beers over 10% ABV. If you were just tasting it there is no way you would put the ABV anywhere near that high, it's a really dangerously sessionable IPA at 10%.

I really hope that sooner or later I'm going to be able to keep my promise to keep reviews up with my Untappd badges. For now though I hope this will suffice. I've got another installment in the Alphabet Challenge Revisited up for you and hopefully an Abstrakt review, a very long time in the making, if Richo gets his shit together...

Remember it's always Beer O'Clock somewhere in the world!
