Just like you, but different
Sunday, Hottest day of the year so far, I walked early which was pleasant, then I was shopping for a fan, because you know that it’s going uncomfortable later, then of course I mowed the lawn in peak heat, because that’s what you do sometimes. Anyway… What Chores, much funnier said than written.
Picture this …
North End Visitation – its a canned craft beer, and it’s a Belgian Quad. What a time to be alive. Brewed by North End Brewing Co in the style that is Abt/Quadrupel and they are in the lovely Waikanae Beach, New Zealand
10.5% ABV, the 440ml can of bee is about 350 calories a serve size and ..
With bold sweet aromas of toasted banana and spice and a rich creamy palate backed up by significant alcohol (10.5%) – this is a sip and savour kind of beer
So, What could possibly go wrong?
Blaming my new found hay fever and runny nose I don’t smell a thing on opening that can.
Pour is that lovely deep brown, and the scant head just wisps away to a film. Malt sugar sweetness in the comedy giant glass, bit of that bubblegum too. Very sweet, nice sweet and a surprising nip at the end there on the tongue. That brought a smile. This is banging with flavour a super bit of Sunday best, and as it warms in the glass it really blooms and develops, and not a hint of alcohol tang to give anything away.
The pdubyah-o-meter rates this as 8 of its things from the thing. An excellent beer that exceeded all expectation and from a can most unusual. There is nothing wrong with beer from a can.
The double dip review
Parallel Lines is the third studio album by the American rock band Blondie. It was released in September 1978
Abt, or quadrupel, is the name given to ultra-strong Trappist and abbey ales. The name Abt was pioneered to describe Westvleteren and the beer that would become St. Bernardus. Quadrupel was pioneered by La Trappe. Abts are the darker of the two, with more rich, deep fruity notes. Quads are paler, with corresponding peachy notes. Neither have much in the way of hop, and both are very strong and malty. Though both are bottle-conditioned, abts trend more towards yeastiness. Alcohol is very high (10+% abv) for both.
