I’m baaaaaaaack. After being terribly absent from the blog, I’m making my triumphant return. I could give the excuse that things were busy, but at the end of the day my lack of posting was due to me being lazy. I indeed had a lot going on, but I could have made time to post.
The biggest recent event was my buddy Kevin’s wedding this past weekend, which I was in. The wedding was an awesome time and I’m very happy for Kevin and his wife Emily. The rat-prick is in Hawaii right now.
My wife is telling me it’s “National Drink a Beer Day”, so I guess I picked the right day to get back into the blogging. I’m celebrating the holiday with this Saison from Mystic Brewery. This is a new brewery in Massachusetts and the Saison was their first beer.
I’m finally getting a chance to drink out of my bad ass Stone glass that I picked up this summer. I’m able to fit the entire bomber of Saison into the glass!
This beer came HIGHLY recommended by a number of people. Saison is a style I’m only vaguely familiar with. That said, I know what to expect from the style. I can’t recall having a saison that blew my mind. In fact, I couldn’t tell you the last saison I reviewed…no idea.
The Mystic brew is good. It’s got a fluffy egg-white-like head and a spicy aroma. The brew is stuffed full of peppery spicy flavors. A fruity sweetness blends in for a taste that seems right in line with what I expect from a saison. Good? Yup – I’m going to drink the shit out of it. Great? I dunno…
