That's true. Almost all of my favorite beers are not available where I live. Houston sucks sometimes.

Drinking a growler of Left Nut Brown Ale from Vertigo Brewing. Voted best Nano Brewery in Oregon this year. They sure put out some tasty stuff!

That's my favorite fruit beer. A lot of people talk down about Lindeman's Lambics and say they're not real lambics blah blah blah. But for what they are, they're pretty freakin good. I enjoy one from time to time and its the only beer I can get my wife to drink.

AleSmith Xtra Pale Ale. Not bad. Good session type pale ale. With more bitterness.

Why do they say they're not real lambics?

All right! Now that the dog's been taken out for the last time tonight I can get to a proper drinking pace. Kicking it of with this beauty, batch #2.

Because they are heavily blended and back sweetened. If you have a real framboise it's much drier and more tart and funky. I don't mind the Lindeman's, and again it is the only beer my wife will drink. But it is rather like fizzy cough syrup. All things in moderation, I can't do a 750 that's for sure.

Because its back sweetened and apparently doesn't properly represent the style. But when it comes down to it that stuff really doesn't matter. If it tastes good, it tastes good.
