Not bad. I wasn't savoring every sip, but it was certainly drinkable. I'm no beer styles expert, but it seemed to be about what it should be. There was that strange Belgian wang, and the cranberry was definitely present, but not overpowering.

Picked up a 6 of Great Lakes Brewing Company's Edmund Fitzgerald Porter from Balk's shop a few weeks ago. Sooo delicious. Very smooth with no "after-bite".

Also, played Peoria this weekend and the club had a sweet selection of micros. Tried a Turbo Dog porter from Abita and it was probably an 7.5-8 on the old 1-10. Tried a seasonal "Nosferatu" from Great Lakes Brewing that was super hoppy and super delicious.

Probably Lindeman's or Kriek. Maybe Cherish. If it was authentic Belgian, then the Sam might not be close. I don't know, I've never been much of a Lambic guy.

Remember "Walnut Ridge Wheat"? "Grandview Gold"? "Southwoods Stout"?

Mmmmmm...

it's on the peak of a small mountain in Bavaria... slightly chilly in February, and the only way you can get up the hill to the monastery is by walking from the town below. Not too far, but not good to do in a blizzard, which wouldn't be out of the question during that season. However, just to have the beer again, it would be worth it.

Picked up a 6 of this the other night. Big mistake, nastiest "beer" i have ever tried in my life. Spewed out the first sip and almost puked, waaaayyy too much cinnamon/spice in it, and it didnt even taste like beer. I went outside to throw it in the dumpster, and there was a bum nearby and asked what I had. I showed him and asked if he wanted it, and he said "Hell no, that sh*t is garbage." No joke!
