Sharp, clear and wonderfully light for a Tripel. One of Brugge's best.

Just had one cold now and it goes down far too easy for such a complex brew! :)

Straffe Hendrik Tripel from De Halve Maan (9% ABV):

Brugse Zot is quite nice too. The brewery tour at De Halve Mann is pretty interesting.

I found it a bit thin actually, but I had it on draught from a place in Brugge so it could have been down to the 'conditions'. :)
It does seem as if most Belgian beer is better from the bottle. Zot does not have the bite that Straffe has, but when I can find it, I'll buy it.
 
Enjoyed an Oerbier from De Dolle while watching this afternoon's Giro. Heavy on the molasses and full-bodied. Masks its strength amazingly well with a sweetish finish. 9.5% ABV, very juicy overall:

 
Just had a Lev Black Lion. And shortly thereafter a mid-afternoon nap. One of the nicest things about going home is that this isn't available in Texas (the beer, not the nap).

I Drink in no particular order:

Mack Fluid Fine Lager and Bayer Royal


PilsnerUrquell


I drink beer becaus it's good, not to get drunk.
 
Watched the Zoncolan stage with a couple of these for company.

A bit off-the-peg, but still light, cool and refreshing when you've got to (watch other people) climb cols. :)

Tongerlo Prior 33cl 9% ABV:

I live with the salt-of-the-earth in rural America, so today I'm "enjoying" the delights of the local population:

we can meet up at any bar in LBC. you can get Chimay on tap, or
Pabst in a can. i agree the Chimay is somehow better, but a cold Pabst
does serve a purpose...what purpose becomes a 'fluid' discussion as time
moves along:)

This gives me something to look forward to when summer holidays come around - July == Torpedo!

Is this as hoppy as many of the American micro brew IPAs lately have been?
If you get a chance, look for Uinta Brewing Company's Cutthroat Pale Ale. Utah microbreweries also do a lot of good IPAs (they call them UPAs) but Cutthroat is the king of their pales.

Since 2002, it's garnered two golds, a silver, and a bronze at the World Beer Cup, with the latest award being a gold in 2008.

Irony, son, irony...lol

EDIT: I would like to submit my credentials...my very first beer ever was a Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale when I was 13...given to me by my 20yr old sister.

I live in severe rural America...I can get Widmer Hefeweizen or Pabst...sometimes an unfiltered wheat doesn't hit the spot.

I normally drink microbrews (Portland IS just 30 miles from here), but at the short-track dirt oval here, you can have Pabst or...um...Pabst...and at Billiard's (the local bar), you have a wider selection, but Pabst is STILL the number one seller...

I was just communing with my salt-of-the-earth brethren!

C'mon over and I'll fete you with REAL microbrews!

OK. Something different. Ommegang is owned by the Mortgaat family (that is responsible for Duvel and Maredsous, among others).

Ommegang. Three Philosophers, a Belgian style Quadruppel blended with Kriek (cherry) beer. Be sure not to drink it too cold and remember, it's 9.8% ABV :)




A very deliberate and smooth pouring beverage with an intensely dark brown (almost black) colored beverage with a tan, thick, frothy head, the immediate response before even coming near the glass is the intense exploding cherry cordial smell that fills the room. The aroma of cherry cordials continues subtly on the palate while chocolate, malt, raisin and caramel show more presence in the finish.
