Ill start this thread off with a midwestern gem, Boulevard Love Child no 3

 

983978_671170612909538_245741911_n.jpg

 

Had this with my dad yesterday for fathers day.

 

Oak barrels were used to age the majority of beer used for Love Child No. 3—with beer aged from 16 months to nearly six years. Another portion of the beer spent 11 months in stainless tanks, souring on Lactobacillus. While very tart, the sourness is short-lived and the beer finishes dry with a trace of oak.

 

Finished out the night by balancing that sour with a coffee chocolate bourbon barreled behemoth of a beer, the highly acclaimed! Kentucky Breakfast Stout

KBs is an imperial stout brewed with a massive amount of coffee and chocolates, then cave-aged in oak bourbon barrels for an entire year. Its one of my favorite beers. <3

Great Topic!

 

Had this gem yesterday for the 2nd time.  Delirium Tremens certainly is on my Top 10 Beer List

 

653e17dcd6fd11e296c022000a1f980f_7.jpg

 

 

Named as "Best Beer in the World" in 2008 at the World Beer Championships in Chicago, Illinois

 

Alcohol volume: 8.5% ABV
Color and Sight: pale blond, the fine and regular effervesce ensures a fine and stable head.
Scent: Slightly malty, a nice touch of alcohol, spicy.
Flavor: Splashes of fruit, apples & pears, but still that hoppy taste.  Not too strong for the ABV level, easy to drink

This is my favorite beer so far, and it's from the Chicago area.

Three Floyds Zombie Dust

 

Alcohol volume: 6.4% ABV

 

Flavor is definitely citrusy, refreshing, grassy, fruity, and tropical, coupled with moderate carbonation and is medium bodied. The bitterness is just right scoring 60 points in the IBU chart.

Zombie Dust is fucking incredible, and one of my favorite beers. I try to go to Three Floyds every other month seeing as I live so close to it, about an hour away in Barrington up in the NW burbs. 

 

I just got back from Wisconsin with a bunch of New Glarus goodies :)

(I drank mine too quickly and didn't get a picture)

 

Had this the other night (Little Creatures - Shepard's Delight) I'm planning on getting some more ASAP. Very nice, not amazing but I wish I bought more than 1 at the time.

 

Most of the stuff LC does is extremely drinkable but lately their single batch stuff has been knocking it out of the park.

I'll be in the Chicagoland area August 8-12 and if I don't have me some Zombie Dust during that time I will be forever disappointed.

Second go at perfecting my competition pale ale recipe.  Single hoped (citra) with a belgian abby ale yeast; bannana and spice upfront with a dry, citrusy finish.  It comes in around the 43 IBU mark so it falls into both the pale ale and IPA style guidelines.

Would it be considered a Belgian IPA/ Belgian Pale Ale?

 

 

 

Sounds interesting, I cant recall the last Belgian beer ive had with Citra hops
