Well, anyone can tell you my twin Rebecca is a sophisticated lady. She has spent lots of time in Europe, speaks fluent french, and is almost a PhD. She is also the best twin sister anyone could have.
So when she says she loves Duvel, a luscious Belgian ale, I believe her. And I love it too. I wish I had a flute glass to bring out its finer qualities but a wine glass will do. It took 3 pours, each with head rising scarily over the edge of the glass but then settling down.
Mountains of head like whipped cream; and a balance of bitterness and fruit. A Homer Simpson-esque drool here. aaaaaggggggghhhhh...It especially went well with my Pringles. Yeah, sophistication.
I'm gonna start grading my beers like my peer beer snobs/geeks do. A!
I've always enjoyed a beverage or two. But beer is something I have never really understood. Oh, I have drunk it. And I have enjoyed it. But to understand it...that is something else all together. See my "intro" entry from 10/17/08 for details.
