Looks like this stolen picture... yeah that's it

I put a 750ml of Saison Dupont in the fridge as well, that should be a cellar champ. Its a 2012 on the cork! From a box of them that has not moved since I set it down in a cool space. Carbonation is vibrant, flavor has mellowed nicely. https://beerapprentice.files.wordpress.com/2012/03/dscn2591.jpg...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Dupont Avec les Bons Voeux ('With Best Wishes') 2016 bottling, fragrant and silky. These 375mls are ageing well.

This is more than best wishes, this is some actual love from Dupont.

Spain Mourvédre-Syrah

Sein 2011 Monastrell / Syrah This is stylistically a peculiar wine, with an acidic and fruity and almost fresh/easy presentation. It starts oddly playful But then there's Mourvédre grape depth that weighs in and a cassia-like phenolic spicy overtone. Berries and black raisins. Tartness. Some meaty ...

?? Coming Ever to the LCBO

Since Founders is being mentioned...anyone know if PC Pils will be back this summer? It just says product discontinued at the website. When it came along near the end of last summer, maybe early September, it became my only regular pilsner until the local LCBO ran out around November. I too was won...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

I like the Deschutes IPA! It's kind of a throwback for me, maybe a bit like a really good batch of Tankhouse back when Mill Street was more on our wagging BarTowel tongues. Maybe a slightly fresher more open hop profile but that good malty thing to it. Not all beers have to conform to one stylistic ...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

Bellwoods-witch shark. It's been probably 5 years or so since I've had a witchshark, so I may be wrong....but this seems like a completely different recipe than it used to be. Tasty as all hell, lots of orange pith, mango and passionfruit. Much more of a neipa now I think. Yes they ditched the prev...

Sparkling Chilean!

Echeverría Brut Sparkling Pinot Noir / Chardonnay With old-world know-how and some new-world attitude, this Echeverría Brut sparkling white from Chile nicely captures a bit of Champagne style in this bottle-conditioned wine. Structure is substantial enough in body, framed with a steely dryness and ...

Re: What're you drinking right now?

So it seems their IPAs have a shelf-life of 120 days, meaning this batch is about 3 months old. I'm still gonna give it a try since I've liked everything I've ever had from Deschutes. Same. 90-day-old Deschutes IPA is not wonderfully fresh but it still isn't Deschits. We owe so much to these Americ...

Merlot-Cabernet Bordeaux

Château La Fontaine de Genin 2014 A fairly easy-going mid-weight yet classically-styled Bordeaux red, it offers herbs and a little garden peppers along with the dry-sweet berry/cherry and cassis. Spice, bright acidity, and enjoyably scrapey tannins. Some mineral carries over the dark acidic fruit. ...

This ...

Re: Riverhead Brewing Co. - Kingston

Anything else worth checking out? Red House occasionally has one or two nice items on their small tap list and a nice ambiance. Worthy service, acceptable food. Maybe worth it to walk by and see while you're there. I hate to say it but last time (1.5 years ago) I just walked out of Kingston Brewing...

drinking now?

FOUNDERS CBS even better on day two (small pours are the key)

Collective Arts - Life In The Clouds. This might be my single favorite go-to beer. Surprising brewery after all.
