Page 12 of This is a thread about beer/Wine tasting! Tell what beer/wine you are tasting right now. Tell about how it tastes, not how it makes you feel. I am having a Franzishaner Weissbier. It has a citrus tan orange look with a citrus taste. Not what I would expect from a German Beer. Has a huge head on it when poured into a glass. It has a really good taste to it, on the light side. Not something I would drink as a favorite, but at the same time, I do not dislike it.... 685 comments | 14730 Views | Go to page 1 →

    There is one in Michigan that also brews a VERY good KBB. The brewery is called Founders, they are located in Grand Rapids. IMO, its better then Kentucky Ale's version.

    They only brew it in March. So set your calander!!! If you can't get it in Florida, have someone mail it to you. Its that good.

    If you like IPA's (which I love) I recommend the Centennial IPA or Bells Brewery's Two Hearted IPA. Delicious! Stay away from Founder's Devil Dancer. It is a triple hopped IPA and it honestly tastes like it will melt your tongue. There is just too much hops for me in that one.

    Absolutely, probably my favorite. I would enjoy it more but it's a bit pricey at almost $12 for 4.

    Thank you very much. My daughter and her boyfriend are heading up that way later this fall. I'm going to have them pick me up a 6 of Centennial. That sounds good.

    Went to the open house at a new brewery in Louisville last night, Against the Grain. It just opened in the former Browning's location inside Louisville Slugger Field on Main Street. All three beers I had were very good but I HIGHLY recommend the Ledersmoken, a smoked-malt marzen-style beer. Unbelievable. The grand opening will take place this Tuesday night, October 4. Louisvillians, go forth and drink.

    Agreed. Had it for the first time tonight. I'm not a big bourbon guy but this was excellent.

    Call for sure, as I'm likely not to be at home.

    Finished a Spaten Oktoberfest about 15 minutes ago. Had a Samuel Adams Octoberfest earlier this evening. As a huge fan of the marzen-style beers, this is a great time of year for me.

    I've tried for several years now to get into a pumpkin beer and haven't found one I like, but I don't think I've had this one. Can you find it at a place like Liquor Barn in a six-pack?

    I would think so but I've honestly not looked this year. I do know from NuLu Fest that The Beer Store has it.
