December 28, 2013 Show

This week we were joined by Jason Jarecki from the Coal Street Ice Rink.  Jason had some great stories about having some beers over in Europe, although he was a newbie to the lineup we had this week and lets just say he left a very happy guest!

We took a look at beers that are great to have around for celebrations, specifically New Years Eve, but hell you can celebrate anything you want when you have this kind of incredible beer line up!

The tasting of the beers went left to right starting with Duvel and ending with the Chimay.

Brouwerij Duvel Moortgat NV- Duvel: This world class Belgian Strong Golden Ale is the textbook example for the style.  It is a highly effervescent beer that has a fairly light body but still packs a lot of flavor.  If you want the true Duvel experience get yourself a Duvel glass!

Brewery Ommegang- Hennepin: Another fantastic beer from a fantastic American brewery.  This Saison is a bit heavier than the traditional style guidelines call for, weighing in at 7.7% ABV, but there is no way that any of us will knock it a single point.  Just a perfectly balanced and highly refreshing beer!

Unibroue- La Fin Du Monde: Translated La Fin Du Monde means the end of the World in English, and if the end is this delicious we all welcome it with open arms!  This Belgian styled Tripel was loved by all in the studio and is a great way to start or end any celebration.

Bières de Chimay S.A.-Chimay Grande Réserve (Blue): The perfect beer to end the show and was given the highest ratings by all.  If you have not had this beer I will not waste any of your time describing it, you just have to try it!
