tonight's theme: raspberries
Oh wait...I have the same raspberry theme planned for the girlfriend and myslef which will include a cheese that has been soaked in Raspberry Tart as well. I am finalizing the list of beers, but here is what we are working with so far:
– Founders Blushing Monk
– Founders Rubaeus (Blushing Monk's base beer)
– Cantillon Rose De Gambrinus
– Hanssens Experimental Raspberry
– Lost Abbey Framboise de Amorosa
Evil Twin Disco Beer. Sorry for the crappy cell phone pic, I can't find my camera cord. One of the biggest heads I've ever seen on a beer, it took like 5 minutes to pour it like that. Oaked Arrogant Bastard did the same thing and they're very similar beers. So similar that I'm not sure this was worth $9 for one 12oz bottle.
Fed-Ex and UPS must think I am crazy with the amount of packages I get in a week.
A little after work pick-me-up
it's damn delicious. raspberry jam and more raspberries.
If you like the New Glarus Raspberry, you might try their Belgian Red which has Door County cherries. Personally I find all the New Glarus drinkable but don't buy any of it for myself, that may be burnout from living in WI though.
Any idea how they brew it and get that raspberry flavor? I have access to some nice raspberries and I may be able to recreate this.
Having some of this
^Had that the other day. I liked it. Wished it came in regular sized bottles though. Might be a contender with Old Rasputin.
Had a Surly Smoke that I scored off a local guy, since my other bottle got stolen. Really, really fucking good stuff. That could definitely be a regular drinker.
Then I had a Piraat and the new Cigar City Humidor IPA - which is just their regular Jai Lai IPA but brewed with cedar. It tasted like somebody had dropped a shoe tree in my beer. Fucking hated that.
I have two extra bottles of Blushing Monk, anyone interested in a trade? Looking for things I can't find in NY.
I'll trade you. I have access to midwest stuff. What are you looking for?
I to have a spare Blushing Monk for trade if anyones interested.
I am. What are you looking for? Want any Cigar City shit?
