    The Velvet Walrus On Raspberry-Väsen Brewing Company

    From Untappd:

    "The final edition of the Velvet Walrus for this winter is a big, rich milk stout made with hundreds of pounds of raspberry. Flavors of dark chocolate and brown sugar complement the strong berry character of this velvety smooth brew."

    I don't remember if I mentioned this or not - apparently this is the West Coast variant of their usual "Clever Girl". I thought I remembered liking this more the first time I had it. I must have had the original.

    This one wasn't bad but definitely didn't live up to my memory.

    I just drank mine (thanks accfan!!) last night. I'm definitely wondering how it would be with a scoop of vanilla ice-cream. That's all I kept thinking as I sipped on it.

    A delicious dessert beer! I would rank it right about where you did.

    A little tart, a little sweet, a little sour. Really enjoyed it, another NG to rank. Belgian Red still #1, liked this better than apple and cran-bic. Thanks DD!
    I need to sneak one of these in the fridge here! I've been trying to finish some of the others that I received from RJ and accfan before I put more in! So much good beer, so little time!

    two deliciously malty Long Trail Double Bags punctuated yesterday's activities as summer weather finally arrived...I believe DD has sampled these.

    Any Richmond brew can make it to Winston-Salem if you give us a month's notice!!

    Format-pint can
    Stemware-large Ommegang tulip
    Appearance-muddy and foamy
    Nose-dark, dried fruits
    Mouthfeel-soft

    Ymm, Beer rating-low cat 3; very easy to sip and would buy/trade for again
    Mrs. Nrrrrvous doesn't like "Veil" (too many IPAs and Smoothies) but she was sad to see this one was no longer available. I'm pretty sure of the 8 I bought, you got one, I got one and she got the rest!

    It was a crazy week last week.

    Tuesday night I ended up in Zion Brewpub after an easy walk up the Temple of Sinawava trail.

    First, I must say, the food was disappointing this time around. They've completely changed their menu and it was not nearly as good. But, this is not the food thread so...

    I tried a new one, their Juicy IPA, no name, just Juicy IPA,

    Pretty darned good, I must say. Even in a crowded field it was an easy upper Cat 2.

    Then I had my favorite, the Springdale Amber. Just as good as I remember. Nice, upper Cat 2, lower cat 3. If you ever visit, put together a flight but definitely include this one.

    If I were to do it over, I would probably get my beer at Zion Brewpub and then have dinner at Oscar's, where they also have a generous tap list.

    Zion National Park is still beautiful, everyone should visit at least once!

    Last Wednesday, I went to my favorite restaurant in Cedar City, UT.

    They only have 4 taps (but a pretty good can/bottle selection) but one of them was a Wasatch Apricot Hef which I enjoyed with my Gorgonzola and Grape salad and my Pollo Bianco Pizza.

    Wasatch does some great beers, probably my fave out of Utah. This one did not disappoint. I would definitely recommend. High cat 2?

    Last Thursday I ended up at the only brewery in Cedar City, UT. - Policy Kings

    I asked the bartender for the best of the 8 or so they had on tap and he brought me a Lavender-Honey Hefeweizen. He put a slice of lemon on the glass, which worried me a bit. It wasn't bad but something, maybe the Lavender, left a not great aftertaste. I then went back for their IPA and it was much better.
    I'd probably not recommend the Hef but would definitely recommend their IPA.

    Last Friday - New Belgium Taproom at the Denver Airport (Luckily dinner was on the company!)

    I enjoyed their Sour IPA so much that I bought a second! Perfect balance of the sour/bitter. Went very nicely with the chipotle chicken tacos.

    That's the 3rd or 4th Sour from New Belgium that I have really enjoyed. They've moved up in my world.

    No need to be sorry; I'm grateful/lucky to have sampled both. Wonder where he got that idea...

    I figured out Clever Girl/West Coast Clever Girl after doing a bit of research (what a novel concept, a little research and then posting after some thought). The two Untappd entries appeared dissonant with what I was tasting and now it makes total sense. I'll guess you had the original.
