    What beer are you drinking, Spring 2013

    I'm enjoying a Brooklyn Brewery Winter Ale. I know it's not season appropriate, but it is still enjoyable. My daughter's partner does a lot of the Budweiser commercials but they had Brooklyn brewery products in their refrigerator, perhaps it is because thy live within walking distance from the brewery. On our next visit we will have to tour the brewery and enjoy lunch here.

    One of my last Heady Toppers from The Alchemist. Canned back on July 16. Still tasting pretty, pretty good, but some hop fade is most definitely evident.

    Re: What beer are you drinking, Spring 2013

    Lost Abbey Saint's Devotion (at a rather unsaintly 6.66 % ABV). I like the occasional sour beer and the aroma had a touch of funk but not a lot. Given it is a brettanomyces brew I expected a bit more sour or tart taste but it was not really there. Not bad, just not noteworthy either. Poured a dense, hazy orange rather like unfiltered cider with a big white lacey head.

    Anyway, bit of a disappointment. Haven't had it that long so maybe it needed some time in the bottle before drinking. Lots of residual yeast to be found at the bottom of the bottle.

    I guess Lost Abbey is kind of the Bulleit bourbon of beers in that its back story seems to be little more than a fabrication for a line of beers brewed at Port Brewery which also puts out a number of beers under the Port Brewery name.
    That yella whiskey runnin' down my throat like honey dew vine water and I took another slash…

    Palate Wrecker. Wonderfully bitter citrus rind bite with malt as an afterthought. Delish.

    Getting ready to head out to my nephew's sons 4th Birthday Party. It's a pirate themed deal, and since I ain't dressin' up like a pirate, I'll settle for this Heavy Seas Black Cannon Black IPA. Kinda roasty with a nice creaminess to it.

    When my son was four he had me dress up as a pirate. We got the costume stuff at Disney World in Orlando a few months previously so a Pirates of the Caribbean theme was mandatory.

    Having another Pretty Things today, their Jack D'or. Damn, think I like this one better than the last. A gorgeous, fairly malt-forward Saison, with some good spice, and a nice bitter grapefruit rind finish. Loving these guys.

    8y/o homebrew English Barleywine, was hoping it had dried out a little, but still a bit too sweet, even for an English BW, great flavor though, very complex. Then Hoppin' Frog Naked Evil Barrel-aged Barleywine
