    About 5 of these while working outside today. Warm weather is finally approaching so I had to re-screen my porch. I'm anxiously awaiting lounging outdoors with good beer and music.

    While breaking the rules (I drank it last night (which was today for many of you)) I'm participating because of the OP Ri0

    Rio Reserva - De Struise

    runs a fine line of fitting the bill of a belgian barleywine
    which is a yet to be defined style of brew
    but easily imagined as to how it would taste
    cheers

    I know it's not everyone's cup of tea, but I simply adore that beer.
    I think I heard it won't be released again until 2014.
    So happy I have 6 bottles.
    I'm tempted to crack one open this evening.

    Don't watch the show, but a fan of the brewery. Crisp and refreshing after a heavy meal.

    Sipping on a beer brewed with Galaxy, coriander, kumquats and peppercorn. Fermented and aged in French foudres with wit yeast, dry-hopped with Galaxy and finally bottle conditioned with Brett and wine yeast.

    I'm debating whether to crack open this 2010 WWS, 2011 120min, or 2013 Bigfoot. I have never had a WWS or Bigfoot. The WWS and 120 I found in the stores were from those respective years. Had a 120 sample from DFH brewery last weekend. Kind of want to try it with some age on it.

    The show's good, so you should definitely watch it, but if you're not into watching TV, read the books. They are awesome.

    As for me, I'm drinking some Eliot Ness to celebrate the warm weather.

    Nice, and I agree....
    although a little overkill w/the GI empties (a superb beer really needs no backdrop).

    Cheers!
