I went to the brewery to see the boys and pick up their latest brew. I popped in one day during lunch to grab it so that I could serve it with 9 pm dinner that night when Rick and Nancy came over.
This release was split between bottles and kegs…and two Chardonnay casks! They are letting those guys age for a few months. This is the beginning of a series they are doing, starting with this Belgian, and moving onto a double, triple and a quad, very trappist of them.
When I was there, I, of course, tried a sample. There, it was sweet and light. That is what I expected when I got home, but when I poured it out and tried it, that’s not what I got. First of all, the bottle I got had a cap that was mis-hit and was a little off. With that, when I opened it, the bottle kinda stuck to the cap and broke off. When I poured it out, it was a little flat, so I assume that it wasn’t sealed 100%. I didn’t care, I drank it anyway.
I sent them a message and told them what happened and they apologized, saying that they caught a few that were like that, but must have missed them. I’m just glad it was me and not a first time consumer who got it. I wasn’t going to post this until I had a chance to try it again, but they sold out while I was in Florida, so……not happening.
The bottle I poured out for Rick was fine, and it tasted great, just like at the brewery. So it’s not the beer’s fault it was off….It’s the bottling machine. They should maybe call an engineer or something to take a look at it…..
