    Now taking suggestions/ideas for first beer of the year.

    May not happen before 2/5, and I may revisit with what is actually in house and available. For now, more fun to leave it wide open and see what suggestions you have, and why.

    Not likely as you showed great restraint by not signing up for Brewery Bhavana Cellar Door year 2...

    I agree with you WRT this program in Richmond as I've talked about the Hardywood Family Tree club with accfanfrom1970 and it is a very reasonable deal, along the lines of Brewery Bhavana's first Cellar Door program.

Since "beer laws" appear to have changed there, these folks have assembled quite an assortment of session and specialty ales and lagers. The first thought/taste/aroma here is grapefruit juice, fresh and pungent. After all, an IBU of 82 will quickly grab your palate's attention. Somewhat higher than I would have guessed but not too bitter or unpleasant as the toffee-ish, malty balance is well done. The ABV is 7.3% and the overall character of the brew would make it a fine IPA to enjoy and pair with spicy Asian dishes. Definitely worth a trader and a taste. Part of my traded 6er from the week before Christmas.

    As installment #2 of our Christmas gifts from our part-time nurse, she delivered the following last PM:

    A bottle of Robert Mondavi Pinot Gris 2016 for Mrs. dd

    A large bowl of homemade bruschetta and French rounds to share

    The pint can of Vermont Sticky Maple pictured above

    I'll post a review a bit later this evening. It was fabulous.

    Yessiree!

    Took me about 90 minutes .

    That was one I couldn't cellar and then share because our extra nurse was expecting a review when she worked today.

    I'm *always* willing to take one for the team.

    From 4/16/11 (yea, I know, more crazietalk ):

    Tripel Karmeliet-Brouwerij Bosteels

    Haven't had a real Belgian brew for quite a while so I figured I had better order one while at Monk's Cafe, described by All about Beer magazine as the best Belgian bar in the US, and by Michael Jackson (the bearded brew expert, not the pale, pasty dead guy) as one of the best 5 taverns in the world, or something like that. This was served in its own chalice and was a very slightly cloudy yellow with a modest amount of the typical Belgian lace head which lingered through most of the 10 ounce serving (about $8). This golden ale rivals Duvel as one of the best tripels on the planet. A bit of orange and coriander on the nose and on the taste buds with a bit of black pepper spiciness. Hops are fairly minimal and faintly floral. The ABV is 8.4% and has there are also hints of light caramel, green apples and pears for its other tastes/flavors. I have seen this in beer shops but never tried it. I'd guess it is about $10 for a 750 ml bottle and would be worth that to share with a plate of fresh fruits for an appetizer beer or with a lighter fish entree with some mango or pineapple salsa.



    From 8/29/14:

    We returned to the blonde color but not the blonde style here but I'm not sure I can really explain it well. There are 3 grains in this light golden colored ale: oats, barley and wheat. The oats impart a bit of smoothness, the barley the color and typical light, bready tastes and the wheat chips in with a bit of citrus flavor. The Styrian hops are listed. I suspect there's Belgian candi sugar here because of the very mild sweetness. And, of course there's always the (suspected) triple fermentation, including final bottle conditioning with the fine layer of yeast adding to the exquisite, delicate and bubbly Belgian lace carbonation. There are tastes of vanilla, lemon and ripe pears and apples with floral scents emanating from the tulip glass from which we sampled. I'll guess 20 EBUs and the ABV is 8,4%. I almost wish one of us had brought a 330 ml bottle of Duvel with which we could compare this because now, in my mind, Duvel has a serious competitor for "world's best" tripel.

    Iím glad there are people thinking about the tough problems to solve for my future trip to Mars:

    https://www.tor.com/2020/01/24/how-t...neration-ship/

    I need a better conclusion than this, though:

    So now weíve got rice, kelp, yeast, and mold. How do we make this taste like beer? Hops. And, remarkably enough, hops do grow hydroponically. Theyíre a specialty crop, certainly, and our generation ship bioengineers are unlikely to devote an enormous amount of resources to growing it when they could be using that space for actual foodÖ but it is possible to have occasional hop crops, as a luxury item.

    And thus: space beer. Itíll be cloudy and not that alcoholic (from all the rice), itíll be a luxury not a staple (because of the hops), and it will taste like the ocean if the ocean were fermented (because of the kelp). But itís beer.

    Probably. Itís beer enough.

    óend quote

    ďBeer enoughĒ is a horrible, horrible target for which to aim.
    Tasting like fermented ocean is not lathering up my taste buds, either.

    Allagash will be releasing a sour with raspberries and cranberries called I Believe in Love.

    Will be tracking some down, being distributed everywhere Allagash is sold.
