    Duchesse de Bourgogne was awesome. Something i'm definitely going to pick up again in the near future. A girl i was hanging out with said it almost tasted like soda and wanted more as she'd never drank non-typical beer. She was hooked.

    delirium tremens was pretty good. Something i'd drink again. It was just overshadowed because i liked DdB so much.

    I need to get a decent glass for beer. I have tall thin glasses or wider plastic cups now.

    Excellent [​IMG] . For the Duchess, just use a red wine glass, medium sized would do (that is what their official glass is, too). I usually use a tulip goblet for most of what I drink, I just find it to be the most flexible in the characteristics it allows through...

    Any Chicago folks had the Goose Island Bourbon County Stout? I believe it's limited release (comes in the 4 packs, costs $20). It's magnificent, pours like a liquid black hole and is sublimely smooth with its bourbon cask influence. Mmm.

    They have awful US distribution. It was fine until the mid to late 90s and has sucked since. I cannot find the Salvator now and I live in perhaps the nation's largest beer market.

    Ugh. I unfortunately drank more natural light the past 3-4 days than anyone should in a lifetime. I'll never get that taste out of my mouth....

    As you're in Japan, NR, have you tried Kiuchi Brewery's Hitachino Nest White Ale? I think it is better than Hoegaarden, although not as good as Witterkerke. Very good interpretation of a Belgian witbier, IMHO. [​IMG] I like it. I also tried just recently their Espresso Stout, was pretty good. As is their Red RIce ale (very interesting, that one).

    Never heard of it, actually. Beer is my drink of last resort after gin, wine, whisky and Cognac.

    That said, Yona Yona Ale is probably the best Japanese beer I've had. A while back, they produced a stout called Tokyo Black that was excellent.

    I'll have to look for Kiuchi Brewery beers.

    I'll probably drink these over the next week or two. At a liquor store with a good individually bottled beer selection i went with some old favorites and a few new ones i wanted to try. [​IMG]

    NICE!

    Bavik's Witterkerke is hands down my favourite witbier (prefer it to Hoegaarden).

    P.s. Bavik also make the Petrus Oud Bruin. It is related to the flemish reds like the Duchess, but less acidic and "oakier"; as its name suiggests it is a "brown" ratrher than red ale. I have not been able to have it in years, I loved it [​IMG]
