Rich and I had a chance to get together last night but not much site discussion went on. We ate dinner then got down to business: tasting beer. Rich provided the drink and the three bombers that we had were all Belgians. The line-up consisted of (in drinking order):
- Matilda (2009) by Goose Island a Belgian Pale Ale style beer
- The Lost Abbey – Avant Garde by Port Brewing Company a Bière de Garde style beer
- Salvation by Avery Brewery a Belgian Gold Strong Ale style beer
If you look at the reviews you will notice that only one of us actually free run 3.0 v4 reviewed the beers but we both enjoyed them. I would rank them in the following order:
Matilda (2009) really was a solid beer followed closely by Salvation while the style (Bière de Garde) of The Lost Abbey – Avant Garde might have been the biggest hindrance for me. I would easily suggest the first two to anyone interested in Belgians. Enjoy!
