Trappist? Is that like a hard lemonade? LOL!

So why does the Newcastle at my local Thai restaurant always taste better than the same beer at (I think) the same temp from my frige at home? Mysteries of life!

I've tried the cranberry lambic from Sam Adams. Yuck. Now regular Sam Adams, on the other hand, yum. My favorite is the black lager, though. Picked up a few in the winter seasonal case at Costco. Gotta love that Costco.

Get thee to Trader Joes or Beverages and More. Get thee anything made by Unibroue. Follow the directions. Enjoy!

Sage advice, Ken.

Or if you're not yet ready to step up to Unibroue - you could try Brother David's Triple (from Anderson Valley Brewing Co - they also have a double). I'm having one right now and it's actually really nice. Nowhere near as complex as some triples I've had, but definitely not boring either. A little lean, maybe even lightweight when compared to a Unibroue or some of the authentic Belgians, but on it's own it's very tasty without being 'chewy,' nicely balanced and easy-drinking. Good for those times when you're not looking for a meal in a bottle.

Let me make an addendum to my previous post.

Brother David's Triple isn't that lightweight. As it loses it's refrigerator chill it seems to gain a bit of body (still retains it's balance, though), and right about now the 10% alcohol is starting to hit.

I have not read this thread, nor do I intend to. I'm not an exotic beer kind of guy(yet ). But . . . I have come across something through a friend that I found very agreeable. Some of you may enjoy it so I thought I'd share it with you, (I had the one with the burgundy colored label)

Yes, we know about that one. It's good.
