    Drinking the saison now. Really nice. Bright golden yellow, cloudy from bottle conditioning. Aroma is yeasty and sharply fruity. Taste is slightly bitter and has citrus. Finish is long with some spice/pepper component. Daddy like.

    See? The crossover is not that different...in either direction [​IMG]

    Hmmm...if my beer palate is anything like my wine palate I'm pretty sure I'll be avoiding those [​IMG]

    I was only kidding...in my persuit of learning and understanding of anything I will always give everything I can a try. If I hadn't in wine I would have missed out on some awesome Sancerre roses! But I have to admit the term sour is a bit intimidating to me [​IMG]

    NYCers, be on the lookout for Kuhnhenn Barrel Aged 4D. I guess anywhere from 60-100 (no one can confirm on the amount) cases of it was just sent off to the New York City area. It's fantastic. Real boozy, but I also get a lot of dessert like notes on it. caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, etc. It'll kick your ass after a couple. Sits in at 13.5%

    Alrighty, here is a list of stores for you to check out:

    West Lakeview Liquors
    Lush Wine & Spirits (3 locations)
    Armanetti's on Grand & Western and Lincoln just south of Addison
    Noble Grape
    Binny's South Loop
    Warehouse Liquors
    Danny's on Western
    D&D
    Archer Liquors

    If you can't find anything at any of these stores then you should just give up!


    Thanks for this, by the way. I was at the South Loop Binny's for a beer tasting last year and it was by far the best Binny's I've been to. The one at North/Clybourn closest to where I live is just ok. I've heard from someone else that Armanetti's is a good place too.

    I doubt it. Distribution is limited even in mi. The county I live in only got 30 cases that's why I'm surprised so many are going east.

    Shame, guess I'll just have to hope to trade for it one day [​IMG]

    Hmmm..... Gives me something to look for during my weekly beer hunt. Today I am going to buy a few more bottles of Black Gold and try to find that Founder's Old Ale.

    It's not Founders it's Kuhnhenn and it's better than drinking 4 bottles of KBS at once! Send me Black Gold...
