Well here's my other "Beer Adventure" for this week. Here's what I enjoyed this week. Beersel Oude Geuze.



Note that these are first impresssions and I plan on getting this one again. This is my fist venture into the Gueuze. Sadly I had to pour this one quickly since once the cork popped (flew) out a rush of bubbles followed. So I had to pour as quickly as I could to save the bubbly. Bad cork popping on my part probably. The head was huge on this one and poured a copper hue. First taste was sour but not overbearing and finish was slightly dry. In the finsh was a "wild" taste that made me think of a field of wheat by the farm. The fruity hints were semilar to grapefruit without the bitter aftertaste. In all, very unique brew, but not for those who are new to Lambics. A fruit Lambic would be a better place to start.

May have been a touch too warm. Warm bottle conditioned beers will gush.
I'd either chill it to low temps (and allow it to warm slightly in the glass) or use a large pitcher in which to make the initial pour. I usually take the latter approach with my homebrews.
I know you guys love those sour Belgians, but I think I'm going to stick to Old Milwaukee for awhile.

Thanks for the tip. I kept it in the 'fridge around 40, but I did let it come to around room temp. That must have done it then. Anyway, I don't think that I can give up the Belgians though. They're just too tasty. Enjoy the Old Milwaukee.

I'm enjoying a Red Tail Ale at the moment. A little bit malty, a little bit hoppy, nice clean and crisp finish. Yum. Got a case from Costco.

They have the Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale at my Costco. Due to your analysis of it (and the monthly newsletter from a mega liquor store) I happily avoided that off-style brew.

I don't remember saying anything about the Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale. It was the Anchor Brewing seasonal that I said I disliked -- however I did backpedal on that assessment.

I think it was me, but I didn't pan it; I just said it didn't meet my expectations, and that it was one-dimensionally hoppy.

bigwill's afraid of hops now that he's been chugging all that Old Milwaukee j/k Mark, I know you don't like those citrusy beers.

I suppose it is appropriate to be confused about who said what on the beer thread.

It seems to me that a heavy hop presence in a winter warmer-style beer is out of style. They should be soft and spiced, alcoholic and complex, but not hoppy.

BTW, Tom, I'm not quaffing Old Milwaukee exclusively. Liberty Ale, Becks, EKU Pils, Anchor Porter, Jubelale are all sitting in my garage frig (right next to can after can of OM).

I'm sure I recommended it before, but I love the Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout from the Anderson Valley Brewing Co. Not a porter, but it is dark.

I gotta fix that picture of my boy - his head is being squeezed. Looks like Woody from "Toy Story".
