A typical Saturday around our house in the warm months usually includes either us at the Armstrong’s or Ruby at our place. This particular Saturday, it was the latter. The plan was to keep her for a few hours while they get some stuff done and then take her back home in time for dinner. At 3:30, David sent me a picture of this pretty white-wrapped beer and said “for later…”
That pretty much meant that we weren’t going to be going to bed early that night.
When we got there, we had a Keller and enjoyed a Kåååd on the deck, but with dinner, he broke out the Ashnan. It was then that I pointed out that it was a wheat wine. He was a little surprised at that. I figured it had to be something off-beat since it came from Beau’s and was wrapped up.
It poured out golden-yellow and smelled like chardonnay. Apparently it was aged in wine barrels (so says the interwebs). It tasted like a strong Belgian ale, almost like a harsh Tripel but it had that dry chardonnay booty.
It is definitely a sippin beer and not a drinking beer. We had a tough go at it and I won’t do it again, but I didn’t hate it as much as I do some of their other beers (Smokin banana Peel, I’m looking at you, you hot dog water tasting freak!)
