This beer has been sitting in the fridge since before we left for Florida in March, so I think it’s nice and cold now. I figured, a day full of drinking random things in the fridge is a good time to try this one.
It’s all wrapped up in pretty blue paper and looked real fancy. It looked, from the outside, like a saison or a wheat beer. Don’t ask me why, I just figured it was. It would be a great beer to drink in the blazing heat. Once unwrapped, I read that it’s a provision ale. What the hell is that?
Whatever it was, it poured out pale brown and had lots of floaties in it. It smelled like raisins or prunes, not appealing at all. It tasted even worse. I got watered down alcoholic prune juice. Of those last five words, I only like one! (OK, maybe I do like juice too) My oldest brother tried it and he actually liked it. He seems to like the stuff that is nasty, he’s strange.
This, my friends, was the first beer since GhostTown Stout in October that we haven’t finished. I hope the tree liked what was left.
