When I reviewed Chimay Grande Reserve, despite its deliciousness I didn’t think it would make for a good Belgium booth beer because it’s only distributed in bottles. Chimay Triple, also known as Chimay White and Chimay Cinq Cents, might be a better choice. Cinq Cents is the newest of the Chimay beers and the only… → Read More
Remember when I went to Be Our Guest Restaurant and tried a Saison Dupont? It’s not #ConfessFriday, but here’s a confession: I almost had a Chimay Grande Reserve instead. Probably the most popular of the Chimay trappist ales is Grande Reserve, more commonly known as Chimay Blue. Grande Reserve was first brewed as a Christmas beer… → Read More
Brother Thelonious is named after Thelonious Monk, one of the greatest jazz pianists; let’s set the mood appropriately. North Coast Brewing Company, from Fort Bragg, CA, brews Brother Thelonious as part of their American Artisan series. And holy crap, what a beer to brew in honor of a great jazz pianist. Furthermore, a donation to… → Read More
Pleasantly surprised with this one from New Belgium Brewing. A nice smoky flavor that goes down pretty smooth. I wasn’t expecting to enjoy this as much as I did last night. Definitely a beer I will drink again.

Tonight I’m having the third of the St. Bernardus four-pack. It’s their Tripel, and it’s definitely the weakest of the three so far in my opinion. I also preferred the Petrus Tripel from New Year’s Eve to this one despite Petrus’ extreme foaminess. One more St. Bernardus beer to go!
It’s shaping up to be a St. Bernardus week here. Tonight’s brew is Abt 12, and it’s dark and delicious. A wonderful beer to sip while you watch your wife’s new Roomba vacuum (that’s what I did). Abt 12 has a wheat-like scent and a great taste; sweet, bitter and a bit of an alcoholic… → Read More
Today after work I picked up a sampler four-pack of St. Bernardus beers; the pack also included a St. Bernardus trappist glass. First up from this sampler pack is Prior 8. It’s an excellent brew with a bit of a sweet taste and very drinkable with an 8% alcohol content. Just what I need after… → Read More
