V-Twelve

Busy day today. But I did manage to try to put in a beer order for my coworker's business trip in New York this week. I wasn't as prepared as in the past, but a few friends online and at a couple of local stores came through for me. I'll be sure to give you the details of the scavenger hunt when I have them, as well as acknowledge all of the stars in this production!

Tonight I'm drinking a wine-sized bottle of V-Twelve brewed by Victory Brewing Company in Downingtown, Pennsylvania. According to the bottle, this is "Liquid Luxury in the form of a Belgian-inspired ale". This is part of their V Series, "an ongoing experiment in pleasure". This is sounding like "me" for sure! Bottled September 18, 2009--enjoy within 5 years. Check.

Fruity apples and bananas with some spice for an aroma. A little caramel shows up as the beer warms. Mmmm. Really nice fruity flavors start things out--apples, peaches, pears. Sugary candy and yeast all rolled into one. Creamy and smoothilicious. The back side has a little black pepper bite that lingers on and on, and cloves are present, too. Carbonation and body are both on the upper side of medium, perfect. The 12% alcohol does "bring it" with its warming presence, but the way it mixes with the fruits is very pleasant. Nice beer. A little much for one person, but remember, that one person is me! Get it and share it, seriously! BTW, the "rules" on the bottle say to avoid the dregs at the bottom as they are "not the most favorable part", but I'd say you should drink up on them after most of the bottle is gone. It's a different, tasty, yeasty, fruity, dirty, beery part of the experience!

Had that one a few weeks ago - thoroughly enjoyable. Spot on about the alcohol being dangerously hidden...and, Rules Shmules. I think a little beer grit in your teeth adds character!

Yeah, Marie. I do like to drink the beer as they suggest, without all the yeasty crap floating around for the whole bottle.

But at the end, I definitely am drinking it all in one glass!
