I'm looking try a good wheat bear tonight; something nice and crisp to dress with fresh lemon.

I seek thee beer masters for a interesting suggestion. Boulevard Wheat is one of my favorites.

Hacker-Pschorr Weiss seems like it would fit the bill quite nicely, Viro. Has a lovely, strong citrus note with fruity undertones. It's unpasteurized, so be sure to pour it in a TALL glass, very slowly. Delicious and refreshing.

For a drier, more bare bones approach, Big Rock brewery makes a wheat beer called Grasshopper that's smooth as my bottom. I mean a baby's bottom.

^ The Hacker-Pschorr Weiss sounds like what I'm looking for. Think I shall try that. Thanks!

I went by the store today to get my schedule and I ended up hanging out with the boss for a while. We're going to be upping our beer selection from 650 to 1000!!!
No Westvleteren though, at least, not yet...

This is a team I can get behind.

My personal favorite at the moment is Goose Island Honker's Ale. If you're in or around Chicago pick up a 6.

It sure does!

Any beer with a hobgoblin carrying a bloody axe has a reputation to live up to right away, and it doesn't disappoint.

Anybody else on ratebeer.com? I got my ratings list here: http://ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?UserID=51222

I hope to be up to over 100 by the end of the year Trying new beers is so much fun.
post #102 of 1979
I always use them for ratings and information, such as what style of glass to use with a certain beer.

I prefer the forums discussion of www.beeradvocate.com though.

So today I started at the store, over 750 beers!!!! I think theres other stuff too, wine or something.

I tried to decide how best to share my new experiences with you fine folks, so here it is. Beer tastings with unpredictable regularity!
Tonight I have picked three pilsners, or Pils, that I have never tried.
The first is Bavik Pils from Belgium @ 5.2% Alc by Vol
It has a very clean, refreshing taste. The first flavor notes start out with a dominent lemon flavor, more citrus, followed by hints of clove, mint, banana and some sulfur. The aroma has a bit of vanilla, and flower blossoms, it reminds my of my aunts garden in Smithtown on Statin Island, roses, some jasmine, and fresh cut hey. The finish is smooth and semi-sweet, semi-dry.
Definately a thirst quencher, although it lacks the hop bite that other Belgian Pils, most notably Stella Artois, have in spades it's definately proper.
Brewed in Bavikhove, West Flanders by the Brabandere family. Other beer produced by this fourth-generation family-owned brewery are Wittekerke and Petrus, most famous being the Petrus Oud Bruin.

Look for two more reviews tonight, EKU Pils from Germany and Czechvar (aka Budvar) from the Czech Republic

And on to the second beer!
This one is the EKU Pils, brewed by the First United Brewery of Kulmbach in Franconia, Bavaria.
Although geographicly speaking this beer is brewed in central Germany it resembles more closely the pilsners of the north country. A more pronounced hop bitterness all around dominates but does not overpower. The aroma is all hops as well, very floral. The mouthfeel is more chewy than the Belgian pilsner I reviewed prior to this one. Also the aftertaste sticks around a little longer (Key Lime Pie, Lemon Fingers?), but does not offend in the slightest. Quite contrary, it is a very pleasent sensation! The true Pilsner styles are all about the hops, though not to the extreme of the trend here in the states, the trend of "Imperial" and "Double" pale ales.
