    Re: What Beer Are You Drinking? Summer '13

    Rain has washed out all of the scheduled fireworks tonight, except the various neighbors private shows. Good enough for me, while enjoying their efforts with a creamy and delicious Founder's Dirty Bastard.

    Re: What Beer Are You Drinking? Summer '13

    A little side trip to Belgium for the Fourth last night. Cantillon Kriek and Rose de Gambrinus, Drei Fontenein Oude Kriek and Lindemans Framboise.

    The cherry lambics aren't my favorite but both of these had enough tartness to make them enjoyable. The Drei Fontenein was the more tart of the two. It is available locally on occasion where the Cantillon is not. Lindemans Kriek, the most commercial and readily available of the lambics locally (and which uses fruit syrup instead of fresh fruit like the other two), is so sweet it tastes like bad cough syrup.

    The Cantillon Rose de Gambrinus was my favorite. After about a year on the shelf the raspberries have given way to tartness and the moderate barnyard funky-ness that makes it so interesting. The Lindemans Framboise is much sweeter than the Cantillon but pleasantly so without seeming as artificial as the Kriek version I have had in the past.

    Had hoped to get the Cantillon Lou Pepe Framboise when I visited the distillery last year but had no luck. Not much Cantillon left from that trip.

    What Beer Are You Drinking? Summer '13

    A Firestone Walker Union Jack, bottled on 5/22. I like brewers that date their bottles because the Utah DABC has been known to let things sit around for far too long.

    I tried Black Crown on the 4th. It is pretty good, but not great.

    Founders Rübæus last night. The raspberry replacement for the cherry Cerise that wasn't available due to the failed Michigan cherry crop. Not quite Blushing Monk quality but quite pleasant and pretty available at the moment.

    What Beer Are You Drinking? Summer '13

    Having a Utah Pale Ale at Desert Edge Brewery. Good beer. I don't make it here a lot and they don't bottle so I don't drink many of their beers... I'll have to make a point to come back sooner rather than later.

    Kicking off tonight with the last bottle of a Stone Ruination 4-pack. Will probably move onto West Sixth IPA next.
