    Belgian's are good but you have to find the right ones to fit your tastes. They can differ wildly. Same with stouts. It would be easier to narrow down if you could tell me what you have available at the liquor store.



    Black Hole is good. Black Hole aged in bourbon barrels absolutely sucked. Beer Geek Breakfast and Weasel are both ok, nothing special IMO. Those are the only ones I tried.

    Opinions on Shock Top's Belgium white? I had some for the first time a couple days ago on Anhueser Busch's factory tour and I thought it was really tasty.

    eh. it's aiight. it's a little bland tho and doesn't really have the nice coriander, orange peel smell you get from good witbiers. i'd rather have hoegaarden which is as widely available

    The labeling on Shock Top always dissuaded me from trying it. It's like something out of the bad part of the 90s.

    Got a gift card for Central Market for the b-day, and decided to go nuts on beer.

    Jester King Noble King. Just cracked this one open right now and it's delicious. I'm really impressed with the beers I've tried from this brewery. Everything I've tried is some variation on the saison and they are all really bright and delicious. This might be my favorite so far. Perfect for the weather.

    Also got Naked Nun from Adelbert's. Another Austin brewer. I think they are fairly new. And I also found Mikkeller's Draft Bear on sale and thought I would give it a shot. Haven't tried either of them yet.

    Naked Nun - meh. OK witbier. Nothing special. Worth buying on sale.

    Draft Bear- blech. There is some kind of flavor, kind of like anise or something, that is just bugging me. It's definitely unique and flavorful, but not in a way that I enjoy.

    Not a Fran. It's good but was too expensive for what it is. The funk is very heavy handed even at colder temperatures.

    Really good stuff. A bit heavy on the barrel character, but insanely drinkable for 12% abv.

    Shock Top is sort of a dumbed-down version of a Belgian Wit. Try Allagash White for a more true-to-style American interpretation.

    What's your favorite IPA? Dogfish Head 60 minute is the gold standard for me, but I'm looking to try some others. I also like Heavy Seas Loose Cannon.

    The ipa I drink the most is Ithaca flower power bc it's so available near me. Ive really enjoyed heady topper and Pliny the elder. Sculpin I can find sometimes and usually will get that. I think the best ipa I've ever had was galactic daisy double cutter but it's really not a very traditional ipa.
