I thinks Sam Adams is pretty overrated in general. If there isn't anything else to drink but Sammy, it is the best choice, but all in all, SA is really the alternative to BMC.Sam really falls short in the fruit beer department for some reason.
You are probably right sir, I have never had a jalapeño beer. I do like three jalapeños with either beans, chili, or both then slam a good guzzle of some decent beer.I recently tried a bottle of Horsehead Brewing Jalapeño Beer. Split a bomber with my son. After my first taste I started to think about how to use the hot peppers I was growing in the garden.... by the time I finished the glass, I decided it was best enjoyed in small doses. I'll save my peppers for chili.
Tastes like cough syrup to me, I was praising it until I tried the second one."Sam Adams Cherry Wheat"

I like ever thing they did at one time. Now I only like the Boston Lager, and it is getting old as well.I thinks Sam Adams is pretty overrated in general. If there isn't anything else to drink but Sammy, it is the best choice, but all in all, SA is really the alternative to BMC.
Love Maui Coconut Porter.Anyone try the Maui Coconut Porter?
I got a truck driver going on vacation in Cali. you can only get it in CA, MO, Hawaii. I told him to try all of Maui Brewery out, make the call whether to buy all coconut, or a mixture of all of them. I told him that a lot of people like it and that I would buy all of the beer he didn't want to keep. I might get two cases or so. I hopped from Molokai to Oahu, had time on the flgiht, to sample some of Hawaii's breweries but don't remember which one is was.
I'm especially thankful this discussion got it's SA bash in. Where would a 10 page discussion be without it??
I'm off to start a new thread to explore how people who like hoppy beers are fags because they enjoy beer with lots of flowers in it...
yea, has apricot in it. The brewers even talk about it in the Can You Brew it episoce (although they dont disclose how much, or exactly what they use)Long thread, but I saw some references to Magic Hat #9. Is there even any fruit in that beer? You guys should go ahead and make a very mildly hopped pale ale with WLP001 fermented in the 70's and mashed thin. You get some crazy peach and apricot taste from it. Just because it tastes like fruit doesn't mean there is fruit in it
I always thought there was something wrong with 'foo foo beers' until a good friend gave me a Blackberry Wheat. It was one of the best beers I ever had, and that was back in 1992, so you know it was good.Maybe I haven't tried enough fruit beers but the ones that I have tried always tasted like crap and/or gave me a serious headache. I mean if I want to drink a fruity alcohol beverage, I'll pick up a gallon of wine or some wine coolers. IMHO malt and fruit don't mix. If you think they do, drink some wine until you got a half decent buzz and then finish off with some beers until you're good and drunk. You will see what happens to you in the morning. No fruit in beers for this homebrewer.
