I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and got to spend it with some good people. Even if that includes family you maybe don’t like so much. I spent much of the day with my family and that is usually pretty good. My dad and I watched football then we ate enough food to put back on all the Biggest Losers weight. But after that I went to spend some time with friends.
My friend and podcasting partner Phil in crime invited myself and my girlfriend over to his house for a very, very small sour tasting unlike any other. Along with our friend Tony, we each supplied a bottle of an uber rare sour beer. Just take a look at the picture.
If you can’t tell by the picture this is Isabelle Proximus, Veritas 006 and Duck Duck Gooze. All of which Lost Abbey had a hand in oddly enough. These all are sought after and rare sours and I was just happy to be sharing these with good friends.
Just some short thoughts, Isabelle was everything that I had hoped it would be. Beautiful American style sour that I could just drink all day long. Duck Duck I’ve had before and it’s always a delight to have. A lot like a traditional Belgian version in almost every way. And the Veritas, well we had some issues with that but not taste related.
I went to open the bottle and was taking off the cage with the cage broke and the cork just shot out of the bottle. While I got over the shock of that about 5 – 10 seconds later Old Faithful started to arise from the depths of the inside. Of course a mess ensued but we got it under control rather quickly to where we didn’t lose a lot of it.
The Veritas was like a really well aged Framboise. Tons of very tart and acidic raspberries in the taste. Just delicious.
Well I just wanted to share with you what I did for my Thanksgiving. I hope yours was just as good and spent with just as good company.
