New beer Friday, well, new to me

Couple imports tonight.  Picked these up at Binny’s Beverage Depot in IL this week.  They were recommended based on my ratings on BeerSeek, a cool little Facebook app.  Started with the Duvel, a Belgian Strong Ale, good taste, would drink again 7/10.  Next up the Chimay brothers, beginning with the Chimay White, an Abbey Trippel.  I thought this was very tasty and give it an 8/10.  To follow up a good beer, I grabbed the next Chimay, the Red, this was also very tasty, probably a hair below the White, but another 8/10 for the Dubbel.  The last of the Chimays was the Blue, another Belgian Strong Ale, and boy, either it was strong, or I wasn’t spreading my pints out enough and it caught up to me.  Good taste, not as good as the others, but still a decent brew, 7/10.  Side note, finally got to use the dslr, no offense to the iphone camera, I think it does great work for what it is, but the dslr is just so much more forgiving.Tomorrow, a day of days, should be fun.

    Duvel is illegal in Philadelphia now… just a heads up you have contraband.

      I saw that story, what a crappy situation. Hopefully it’s fixed before too much of the seized beer spoils.
