i don't know what to make of this post. is this a genuine goofball who managed to get fallows to post his stupid ass emails for over a year by claiming to have plans to close his business over the 2012 election? or is fallows just getting trolled by someone who's done a minimal amount of homework -- if so, well done.
oh, and why not an impromptu fermented beverage review?
tonight, victory's golden monkey, belgian tripel:
a crystal clear, pilsner like golden color. well carbonated. a ginger, even over-cautious, pour yields considerable white-to-light straw colored head, which settles promptly. some lacing.
aroma is spicy -- cloves, faint citrus and banana. light body, dry and quite smooth. flavor is dominated by spicy notes of cloves and maybe a bit of coriander.
deceptively alcoholic. a couple 12 oz's and star trek: enterprise almost seems like a worthwhile thing to watch on netflix. (wife's out of town, didn't feel like spending 50 usd getting drunk with old grad school buddies -- though in retrospect, i should've.)
it's an okay tripel. considerably less character than other favorite examples of the style, notably unibroue's la fin du monde. for what i paid, i'd've rather picked up a more upscale tripel or "quadrupel" (whatever that's supposed to be) 750ml, but whatever. not bad, but nothing too special.
