in preparation for our spanking new liquor license – we decided to try some beer.
first out of the cooler were three brews from Charleville Vineyards in Ste. Genevieve.
all of these brews got rave reviews from all of us. our notes look something like this (please do forgive us, we are not beer tasting professionals, just enthusiasts):
tornado alley amber ale
fairly dark in color, but clear
the nose and the flavor are on the light side
i tasted mostly coffee and chocolate, with a bitter back end
half wit wheat
light in color, a little cloudy
the nose is heavy with orange, and the first taste is full of corriander – this is a spice lovers beer
the corriander wasn’t my favorite, but it did lend the beer an interesting flavor
it had a mostly clean finish
Maddie thought this one was dandy.
there is no picture – we drank the whole bottle before i thought to bring out the camera.
that is how good it is.
it didn’t hurt that anne and i love i.p.a. to begin with, but….
this one is delicious, on the hoppy side but bursting with flavor and it has a nice clean finish.
i’m enthusiasic about this beer – actually i am enthusiastic about all these beers.
just hold your breath a little longer and you will be able to buy these right out of our cooler.
