Sidelined by a cold- better late than never

Due to a nasty cold this weekend, I decided to delay my review. My taster is still a little off so I will do my best. I like the color- burnt sienna is what I will call it. The smell is not so great but again it could be due to my impaired olfactory system. Upon first taste it seems a little bitter and leaves a funny feeling on my tongue. I think I’ll stick with my regimen of orange and cranberry juices.  

I hadthis beer several weeks ago when I went to listen to Author Doug Hoverson’s talk on this history of brewing in Minnesota. I don’t disliking it as much as I do at this moment-maybe I was glad to be drinking a local beer while learning about the rich brewing history in Minnesota. So, check out “Land of Amber Waters: The History of Brewing in Minnesota”.  Perhaps this beer tastes better when thinking about something else while drinking it?

After touring breweries like Leinenkugel’s, New Belgium and Summit and spending time in brew pubs in Canada, my interest in tasting unique beers has grown. Every year I make a beer for my husband's homebrew festival, this year it was a stout with Belgian chocolate, vanilla bean and Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee. Is your mouth watering?
