Tonight I went to the second Boston Eco-Tweetup with the wife. While she’s the one into eco-friendliness, I come along to meet people and talk about beer. It’s pretty amazing how universal the language of beer is. I can talk to basically anyone about it, including people who don’t even like beer! If I met you tonight at the tweetup and you’re reading: HELLO!
Tonight I’m cracking open a Southern Tier Phin & Matt’s. I’ve had it a couple times before, but never reviewed it. It’s been sitting here for ten minutes begging for me to drink it, so let’s get to it!!!
The head was light and fluffy. Like clouds…mmmmmmm…yummy eatable clouds. The aroma is citrusy, probably grapefruit. The beer is a cloudy golden color.
Unique flavors in the Phin & Matt’s. Don’t get distracted by the high carbonation. I’m thinking that I taste apricot. This isn’t a flavor I sense in beer very often. I believe the last (and only) time was the Dogfish Head Aprihop.
I’m normally a sucker for a beer that is so different. I’m also normally a sucker for a brew from Southern Tier. In this case, I’m not a huge fan of the beer. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t dislike the beer.
