    Rise and shine BAs!

    Having for lunch La Trappe - Tripel. It’s very good like every of their products.

    Some boring words about the weather, it’s cool and rainy. Actually very rainy and there are flooding reported around me on tv...

    [​IMG] Need to get some coffee beers in my fridge, this is fine, but more anise than roasty coffee.

    Good afternoon and good morning BAs - you know which greeting you get! It's starting off sunny and beautiful - unusual for a June morn here in NW PA. But I have faith this won't last long - it should get overcast and gloomy by 1000. Yesterday it was cool and overcast until about 1900, then the sun came out and began to dry the yard. Of course Mrs. Lizard and I didn't get home until 2145 so it was too dark to mow the yard.

    Today's New Breakfast Beer:



    A very pleasing American Wild Ale with tons (Well, eight pounds/five gallons) of guava.

    I found this pretty disappointing, to be honest. To me this is not the best of both worlds, it's more like neither here nor there. I mean, don't get me wrong, it's a good brew, but I would never have this over a regular Weihenstephaner. Also, a proper Hefeweizen is not supposed to come in one of those tiny 12oz bottles, god damn it!

    Slightly hazy light yellow gold color with white cap.

    Mild aroma of tangerine on a mild grain base.

    Flavor is bolder than the aroma. Tangerine is apparent but not overly so, rather it's a bit sharp like citrus zest or essential oils that doesn't come across as sweet like tangerine flesh or even tart for that matter. If you like tangerine (I do) this works rather well.

    First of the day... slowly adjusting to this time zone again. 8 hours difference is rough. Sorry I keep going 'dark' after 5-6 p.m. every day, but hard to stay awake...
    Cheers...

    SoMA IPA from Tempest Brewing (Scotland).

    Nice tropical fruitY IPA. But being outside now in shorts and a fleece jacket, I almost could do with a winter warmer.

    Cheers!

    Drinking Norrlands Djup. 6.8% abv. Made by the second largest brewery in Sweden. This beer used to be 7% up until a recent rebranding and the change in abv made me curious enough to try it. It has belonged to the 7%+ category of beers which emerged after Sweden entered the EU in 1995 which eliminated the abv limit of 5.6% abv which was in place. All of the macros came out with their own 7%+ beers. The monopoly typically used to describe them as "fiery" in their taste descriptions but they have become more generous in recent years.

    Either way back to this beer. They now label this beer as a bocköl (bock beer) whereas in the past it was known as dynamit (dynamite). The pale color surprised me since I have a distinct recollection of the old version being more amber colored compared with the golden colored Export strenght version. I'm pretty sure it has become paler along with being slightly less alcoholic. Tastewise it seems cleaner tasting and it compares favorably to the Ayinger Maibock which I had last month which is 6.9%. I wonder what the original gravity of this beer is, it tastes fuller bodied and sweeter than a normal Export beer so it has to be elevated but maybe not quite to the 16.5% of the Ayinger. The alcohol is there in the aroma and flavor, but it is not sharp, and it was no less present in the Ayinger. All in all for a 6.8% Swedish macro lager this smells and tastes quite clean. It is sweet with pale maltiness and breadiness and a balancing bitterness. If someone were to ask me for a suggestion on a Swedish pale bock I would suggest this one to try.

    I agree with the color, that looks very pale... sounds like a beer I’ll try.

    La Trappe Oak Aged batch #30. Best before date is January 2043. Awesome ... If I had a cellar I would fill it with La Trappe Oak Aged I think (and some Alaskan).

    Bought a box of six of these at the source recently.

    Cheers!

    Found it at Myrorna for 10 kr! The logo is pretty scratched though.

    Now that you mention it I can see some wear and tear. Then again the way I see it glasses are meant to be used until they break or the logos wear off and disfigure the glass, whichever happens first.
