    Just like the ChrisFit thread, just because I get busy at work doesn't mean I miss a workout or an after workout beer. I just get behind on posting about them. So.....

    From Gadsden, AL: Truck Stop Honey Brown Ale



    This is a darker ale that, as you may guess has a sweetness of honey to it. It doesn't get in the way of the usual taste of an ale, but it is there. Great would be happy to know this is more of a drinking with food tasting ale in my opinion. Since my wife picked this and all these other bottles up I cannot comment on the price, but I'm betting this is one is more manageable for serving at a social gathering of friends. This was not the smoothest ale I've had, but I am a fan of ales in general so it was not a total loss. I've also found that I generally don't like ales with honey associated with them. At least I don't in the damn near 100 degree Southern heat. This opinion may change in the cooler seasons.

    Back Forty Beer Co. (includes Food Pairings)

    Naked Pig Pale Ale

    This is also from Gadsden, AL and the same brewery as the Honey Brown Ale:
    Back Forty Beer Co.



    Naked Pig Pale Ale Back Forty Beer Co.

    This ale was just a bit smoother than the Honey Brown. This had a bit of a fruit almost citrus taste to it that was balanced well with malt used. A good local offering that again would be a good addition to a social gathering with "real" friends.

    Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale

    Boulevard Brewing Company Tank 7 Farmhouse Ale Kansas City, MO



    It is summer time, it is hot, and I have offically decided that farmhouse ales are where it at for this time of year. Between Avondale and now this offering from Boulevard Brewing Co I don't think you can go wrong if you want a full flavored but lighter offering for the hottest part of the year. What is a farmhouse ale you ask? All About Beer Magazine Farmhouse Ales

    Just remember open fermentation.

    Regardless of the art behind the brewing these ales and this one is included make me want to sit in the shade by my smoker. This brew feels light but it will grab you with its 8% abv. Very complex flavoring that just makes your mouth feel alive, so much so that the alcohol is missed. This can be a good or bad thing depending on your perspective I suppose. This is the kind of brew that I would give to someone that came over to help me with an outdoor project in hopes that they would likely volunteer their time again to get some more of the brew. This is good enough it would probably work too. If you look closely at the picture you can actually see the yeast floating around in the glass. Once you taste it, you will not care. This has a fruity taste that is countered by a note of spice. Very invigorating.

    Defiantly get by that brewery. Complete chance I got a hold of this while you were in KC. Be sure to give those new SEC members a big ROLL TIDE for me too.

    My last free night before going on call Thursday night for an entire week. Gotta blow it out (that means about two pints of high gravity brew). We gotta get some folks from here together at the Vineyard or the devil is gonna get us. If we are lucky the devil will bring some Lucifer Belgian Ale:

    Bottled with a cork like Chimay and is a slightly cheaper but similar tasting ale:


    Pours light and crisp:



    What we have here is a yeasty and hoppy ale that pours with a lot of foam if you are rushed. It will lace the glass all the way to the bottom as you drink it. The fruity hoppiness is tempered by a bite of 8.5% abv. Not my favorite Belgian Ale, but don't let that fool you, I've said before I have yet to drink any beer from Belgium that is bad. This is good just not great. However, if you want to save a few bucks on a bomber this came in at $10. For a lighter ale this will do.

    What the pros say: Lucifer - Brouwerij Het Anker - Mechelen, Belgium - BeerAdvocate

    Daddy is off call and hit the store right after getting cleaned up from the gym. Got three different offerings and will start off with the beer that was featured on the City Vineyard facebook page:

    Oude Gueuze Tilquin L'Ancienne

    A Traditional Belgian Lambic Ale





    Brewed by:
    Gueuzerie Tilquin
    Belgium

    Style | ABV
    Gueuze | 6.00% ABV

    Availibility: Year-round. bottle (157).

    Notes:
    Oude Gueuze Tilquin l’Ancienne (6.0% alc/vol) is a spontaneous fermentation beer, produced from the blending of 1, 2 and 3 years old lambics. It is unfiltered and unpasteurized, and refermented in the bottle for at least 6 months. The lambics used were fermented and oak aged in our installations. These lambics are coming from worts brewed by Boon, Lindemans, Girardin and Cantillon breweries.

    This beer has a very tart almost citrus bite at first. Very refreshing finish, but almost too sweet for my taste. Not to say that it is bad. Remember, I have yet to find a bad Belgian Ale, but my palate has grown more accustomed to a high gravity taste and this is just too sweet to me. I have no doubt that a warmer weather outdoor situation would make me appreciate this beer more. Especially with the very vibrant high carbonation that just pops in your mouth. The more I drink it the more it is growing on me though. I do absolutely love the color and I really love the aroma. This just smells like a good farmhouse ale. This will sound weird, but breathing in the aroma of this ale makes me appreciate its unique tartness. Defiantly an offering for all the senses. Careful opening this one though. It will make a mess or send a cork flying if you are ready.
