    It's mindboggling to me that this is even considered a beer. This is my first fruit lambic, and it is truly something else. Not something I'd drink all the time or a lot of, since the sweetness borders on cloying and there isn't a lot to balance it out. Really enjoyable on occasion though.

    Drink it really cold. It masks the sweetness and is one of the most refreshing hot-weather drinks I can think of, and I don't normally find beers refreshing when I'm really hot.

    That's because Lindeman's sucks. You should try something that isn't essentially sugar water, like Cantillon.

    And I think I'll have a Macallan Cask on the rocks.

    I'm currently working on a good 2004 Saint Amour from Julienas which is very respectable for its low price, and there is a bottle of 1985 Vosne-RomanÃ[​IMG]e which needs to be taken care of, I hope it's still good. I also have a bottle of Debowa De Chenes Classic which I enjoy even though I am certainly not a connaiseur. rare around these parts at least, does any one else have experience with this brand?

    Last night, a nice little sav. blanc.

    Tonight, we have a curry beef planned, so I need something that will stand up to that. Upon review of the cellar, it looks like 2004 Peay Les Titans Syrah. It was either that or a 2005 Novy Family Grenache. I have been itching to crack another Peay so this seemed like the pick.

    i wish i was drinking right now. i just got back from my international law exam and my wrist is killing me. [​IMG]
    International law? Aren't you an undergrad? What in heck do they teach?

    How's that LSAT prep coming? (A secret: any law student or lawyer who is not a jerk will have forgotten his score by his second year of law school).

    Here at work it's currently iced Da Hong Pao Oolong. In about three hours it'll be some Lagavulin. The question remains however, 16 y.o., or 12 y.o. cask strength? Decisions, decisions...

    Not now, but in about 30 mins after a shower: Whiskey Sour with Jim Beam Black.

    Edit -- Final Tally for Friday night:
    - Whiskey Sour w. Jim Beam Black
    - 1 shot JB neat
    - 1 can Budweiser

    Watching Flight of the Conchords (recommended by my cousin). It's kinda lame at the moment...

    I think I can make an exception for apple juice. But grape juice, thats crossing the line.

    Good to know you have standards!

    Peets Italian roast atm for me, with a biscotti my wife made.

    Tonight...not sure. A bottle of wine for dinner then we're thinking of heading out to a mellow jazz lounge.
