The first Sunday of the undertaking (365 American craft beers in 365 days). I found my way to brew a batch of beer while watching the Bears barely defeat the Lions with the aid of my friend Chuck. I shared a couple of beers my cousin contributed to the cause: Russian River Pliny the Elder and Kern River Just Outstanding in between we had a couple of Chuck’s home brews. Chuck’s brews were solid.
After that lineup I thought it was time to change the game and go for something a little different but still solid so that the grouping of beers wasn’t ruined, so I pulled out Final Absolution Trippel by Dragonmead.
This was my second time in about a week having the beer as I had it while in Michigan for Thanksgiving on tap at the brewery. Damn yummy. The aroma and taste are both equally well balanced giving the beer such a well rounded ability to please the drinker. This beer is definitely on my list to pick up going forward whenever I have the chance. Probably the best American Trippel I have had. Enjoy!
