    Post Lindermans Framboise / Leinenkugel Berry Weiss and others

    While on vacation the past week the first time I took a week in 7 years A friend bought me something I had never had as far as beer? Lindermans Framboise it was wonderful and I enjoyed my 8 oz glass of it, but it is way to much money to buy by the case $53. for 12 bottles. So I am trying other stuff on that order and one I bought the other day was Leinenkugels Berry Weis it is wonderful for the price of $26.50 a case. Went through 3 late last night and plan to have some tonight. Another one I have been told to try in a 'Framboise' is Appalachian Brewings Framboise - Lambic. I wondered how many have had these two kinds of Beers the Framboise's and the Berry Weiss's. I am going to try and find the ABC's Framboise and price it as have read it is really delious. Another Beer I have found I really like is Philadelphia Brewing's Walt Wit it is really a great Wit Beer.

    I am a big fan of Belgian Ales. My favorite styles would be the Flemish ones, the Flander's Red and Brown, both sour beers and as such having a commonality to the Lambics. While I'm not much of a fruit beer fan, I have had the Lindemans Peche, a peach flavored offering and proclaimed it to be tasty. Another common flavor is the Kriek, sour cherry. However leaving the flavors aside, I find Gueuze to be very drinkable.

    Dave, German wheat beers and probably Belgian-style ones (the wit type) were made in the U.S. before Prohibition. The styles came to America in the 1800's with immigrant brewers. Some of these were probably flavored, in a way similar to berry weiss. (I always thought that mixing beer and tomato juice, which is a concoction known in Western Canada and parts of the U.S., was the same idea as a fruit beer). So everything old becomes new again..

    Boy did you bring back a memory there Gary When I was young I went to a club called the Club 1000 in Pottstown and a friend there told me Dave try putting some Tomato Juice in your beer well I got hooked on that and just lately with some of my Cheaper Brands of Beer have tried this again and I still enjoy Tomato Juice in my beer! Back then The guy told me It will keep you from getting a Hang over well I do not know about that but it is very tasty!

    I am no fan of Belgian beer but a relatively dry kriek on a hot summer day is quite all right. However I did discover a real kriek sensation this summer. I did have Timmermans kriek with rhubarb pie and vanilla ice cream. A real smash hit!

    In several bars I have taken notice to a 50/50 blend of the Young's Double Chocolate Stout and the Framboise. It is a very tasty end of the meal type drink. My wife enjoys it and has gotten her friends that are not really beer drinkers to appreciate it also.

    I just noticed the other day that Bud has started doing a beer and clamato in aluminum bottles. You may enjoy that is you like the beer and tomato juice, Dave.

    I routinely float a large shot of beer on top of my Bloody Mary's. It marries well with the Vodka and all of the seasonings.

    Sounds like a great chaser for a bacon-infused shot of bourbon.
