Happy Labor day LIBA readers! This weekend has been a fantastic one for me. Friday I spent the evening with my wife in Worcester, MA. We tried out a Afghan restaurant called Pomir Grill which ended up having fantastic slow-cooked vegan food. Saturday night we went to friends Greg & Heather’s house for an epic party where the ladies wore their wedding dresses and the guys wore tuxes or suits. Pictures are forthcoming.
Sunday I spent on the golf course with some other buddies and today, Monday, I’ve done some housework and a bunch of reading. I haven’t picked up a good World War 2 book in ages, so I’m trying to get back into it. From my library I selected Foot Soldier: A Combat Infantryman’s War In Europe by Roscoe Blunt Jr. It’s a gripping first person account from Roscoe, who was in a minesweeping infantry group during the war.
I took a pause from cleaning and reading to bring you a review of Blue Moon Agave Nectar. This brew is a hold-over from my April birthday gift from my mom. This summer I’ve struggled with having TOO MUCH beer in the house. I’m getting close to clearing out my supply and beers like this, which lingered in the back of the fridge, are the casualties of my first-world beer-problem.
Gladly, I don’t think the beer tastes like it has gone bad. It’s American Pale Wheat by style and a summer seasonal for Blue Moon. It pours a golden light orange color and had minimal head. It is remarkably translucent for a wheat beer. Mouthfeel is a medium body with low carbonation (admittedly, the age of the beer could impact carbonation and mouthfeel).
For flavors, the brew is sweet from front to back. Honey is the main flavor I get, which is followed up by orange/citrus. The ABV is 5.6%. I found that the bottle went down quick and was refreshing, despite being quite sweet. I don’t know if I would have more than one in a setting due to that sweetness, but otherwise I kinda dig it.
