Smuttynose Strawberry Short Weisse

Smuttynose Strawberry Short Weisse

This past Monday I had a few buddies over to play a game called Munchkin. For those who are unfamiliar, it’s a nerdy game that involves cards, dice, fighting monsters and the like. It’s not as geeky as Dungeons and Dragons, but it’s close I suppose. We have been playing the game for eons…perhaps 6-7 years. We used to play daily, when we all worked together. Now we only get together once every few months for an evening of Munchkinly fun.

While we played on Monday, I had myself a bottle of Smuttynose Strawberry Short Weisse. This limited edition Berlinerweisse style beer is 3.5% ABV. It is highly carbonated, and easy to drink. The bottle read “Best when fresh, bottled on 8/21″…two freaking months ago. Le sigh.

As far as flavors go, I didn’t find it terribly fruity. It was more tart than anything else. It vaguely made me recall drinking Pete’s Wicked Strawberry Blonde many years back. Overall I was a big fan, but admit that I wasn’t drinking a fresh bottle…

Pretty Things Bocky Bier

Pretty Things Bocky Bier

Good evening all. After a long weekend and a busy start to the week, tonight I’m canceling all plans and sitting on the couch. I’m forgetting all the things I should be doing, and relaxing with the wife and pets.

Before I do so, I’m throwing up a review of Pretty Things Bocky Bier. I picked this beer up because I’ve been into malty beers this fall. What I got was a bit more than expected. That is, this 7.5% ABV bock style beer was far darker, roasty and sweet than I liked. Overall, just “meh”.
