    Re: What Beer Are You Drinking? - Winter 2011/2012

    Sipping Dogfish Head Aprihop alongside Redbreast CS. I was worried that the Aprihop would be a sweet, fruity mess, but the apricot is very subtle. The citrus notes in the beer are really pulling the orange and tangy fruit out of the whiskey. Delicious.

    Nice description c2. That sounds like an interesting pairing, and it does sound good. I generally dislike fruit beers. You put into words what my feelings are...they usually are a "sweet, fruity mess..". However, I had a similar positive experience over the weekend with the Sweetwater Brewery's "Blue". It is as they describe, "...a light bodied wheat ale laced with natural blueberry flavor." I've had it before some time ago, but couldn't accurately recall my impressions, so I decided to try it again. Just like your experience with the Aprihop, the Blue's blueberry was very subtle. Slightly detectable on the nose, and even less so on the palate. Very refreshing with the warm weather we're having. It worked very well, to my surprise. So much so, I will re-up for another 6-pack when I finish this one. Now, to just find a whiskey that goes with it.

    Southpaw is the only beer that ever made me throw up when I wasn't drunk.

    Sunday afternoon was a nice warm day here in Atlanta, and I sat out by the pool with the semi-girlfriend and drank a couple bottles of HOPSLAM!!! while getting some sun. Can't wait for Summer!
