It was a very tasty beer. Eminently enjoyable.

I picked up a bottle of Trader Joes Special Edition 2005 limited edition ale today. The bottle looked very familiar, and upon checking --- yup, it's made by Unibroue. I'll tray it later this week.

Tom,

Thanks for the info. Definitely won't be trying to make it anytime soon - I think I enjoyed the finish because fo the juniper berries - kind of a hint of pine, and I do enjoy gin drinks (esp, Bombay Sapphire). Plus I was slightly hungover and it was a lighter beer, and quite drinkable in my state.

I will have to try to expand my beer horizons further, never tried any of the unibroue products - maybe because it's spelling is too close to "unibrow" to relay pleasent thoughts to my brain (I mean, how good could a unibrow taste?)

I was hoping one of the gents of Polish ancestry that frequent these boards could recommend some of the Polish beers/malt liquors to try since there is a large Polish grocery right down the street.

Tonight though is Chinese and Staropramen!

Don't neglect the Unibroue; it's fantastic stuff. Peter, be sure to let me know how that 2005 is! I may grab some...

Hopefully it's a little different than the regular Unibroue Edition 2005, which if I remember correctly was pretty unremarkable as far as Unibroues go. A bit of a disappointment considering how amazing the Ed. 2004 was.

Peter and I are 100% Polish, but I don't think either of us could help you out there. Unless Peter has had some good Polish beers and hasn't told me about em.

I've had some really remarkable Polish Porters. I don't recall the names or breweries at the moment, but they were very sweet and very alcoholic. Most excellent, but not nearly as hoppy as American versions or as subtle/complex as English ones.

Unfortunately, I decided to try the other beer I bought at Trader Joes today. It's an "meh" wheat beer. The thing is I didn't notice it was a wheat beer when I bought it. It's from Magic Hat Brewing and is called Saint Goötz, "A Blessed DARK WHEAT Ale"

Unremarkable. And I've got 5 more....

That's too bad pmb.
TJs used to charge the same rate for singles purchased individually as opposed to purchased in sixers. Maybe they still do? Makes it easy to try just one.
Wish there was a TJs near me - I mean SERIOUSLY wish. I was bummed when the one near my old house quit selling cold beer.
I'm sure I already offered this advice, but I always had good success at TJs by buying the stuff that was poorly packaged, yet still commanding a good price. Liquor in particular.
