Latest Libations: 5th Edition
Good morning, and Happy Saturday. I'm so glad the weekend is here! I've been sick this week and, since I rarely get sick, it's been a doozy. I finally get over the body aches on Thursday, just to really begin coughing and blowing my nose. I'm on the mend though, it just takes forever it seems.
Anyway, it's time for another installment of Latest Libations! I've had some new, interesting, and good beers, so I thought I'd share, naturally. Let's get started.
New Belgium typically puts out a decent beer, and I do like my fruity blends, so when I saw this Juicy Watermelon Lime Ale, I thought I should try it. This beer gave me the fruity tastes that I love, and the watermelon-lime combination was quite good together, without being super sweet. In fact, this one was just barely sweet so it didn't take away from the taste of the ale either.
Deschutes India Red Ale was everything I expected in a India Red Ale. As far as IRAs go, this one is one of the better ones.
I love this beer. Like I've mentioned before, grapefruit beers cannot be overlooked! Schofferhofer makes this delicious Grapefruit Hefeweizen, and the combination is fantastic.
Wow. What can I say? This drink is amazing. I wasn't expecting anything other than "good" when I took my first sip of Crabbie's Cloudy Alcoholic Lemonade that my husband bought for me, but, man, I was sure surprised! This was probably the tastiest fruity drink I've ever had the pleasure of indulging in.
Breckenridge Brewery makes this Oatmeal Stout, and it's quite good. I really like a dark, heavy stout to balance out all those fruit beers I like, and this one was more than adequate. Dark, creamy, strong, and perfectly balanced, this drink will make your dessert sing. Give it a try!
