New Belgium Trippel and a Mats Christmas!

Sunny and mild out here on the Left Coast - is is really almost January? - hard to tell as it has been a dry December.  Got a nice and Sunny brew poured to sample tonight - a New Belgium Trippel.  Received this as a gift, along with 5 other assorted beers as part of one of those sampler 6 packs that you can put together at World Market.  Others included were an Acme Pale Ale, Sierra Nevada Torpedo, Anchor Liberty, Stone Ruination and Deschutes Mirror Pond - quite a nice gift. The one beer that intrigued me was the sixth beer - the Trippel.  This is a beer that I never would have picked out myself, as it proudly proclaims on the label that it is brewed with Coriander.  Really?  Sounds rather nasty - boy was I surprised!

The beer poured a nice Sunny amber with a very small head that bubbled away quickly. Wonderful malty goodness in the nose with no hint of the Coriander.  The taste is wonderful and the Coriander is very very subtle, giving the beer a mysterious complexity that is leaving me with a strange desire to go pick up a six pack of the beer.

Here at the Pinhead Studios, it has been a Mats Christmas -

The family snuck out my Denver Riotfest poster and had it framed and "Mat" ed very nicely and also included the great Waxed Up Hair & Painted Shoes coffee table book released just last month by Jim Walsh.  Also, got a copy of the Songs For Slim 2 CD set - seems that Santa is a Mats fan!

2009 Tanis Mourvedre

Only 3 more days til Christmas - better get started on my shopping.....  A little Mourvedre will get me in the mood, I'm thinking.  This one is a Christmas present from a friend who purchased it at the winery in Ione, California.  Ione is just south of Plymouth in the Sierra Foothills of Northern California.  The area is well known for the wonderful Zinfandels that are grown in the region and I have to say that I have never had a Mourvedre from the area.  

This one is a nice dark red in the glass with wonderful Butterscotch and Oak notes in the nose.  Smooth and silky mouthfeel, with wonderful Raspberry notes - hmm - even getting a hint of some sort of nutty character.
Very nice wine that has been vinified with great care.  I'll have to take a visit there next time I head up to the foothills - great wine.

Mouvedre on Wiki ----- > can produce highly perfumed wines

2013 Sierra Nevada Celebration Ale

Greeting and Salutations on this fine Sunday out here on the Left Coast.  A bit nippy, but have no fear, I have a fine Ale to keep me warm.  That and the heat given off by the games in the Pinhead Studio.  This  is the 32nd year that the Sierra Nevada Brewery has brewed up this IPA, yep started it all in 1981.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but this is the very first West Coast IPA - you know that beer championed by the beard wearing, hop loving, ale nazis (not to be confused with the soup nazis) that were born around 1981.

This year's Celebration keeps the flame alive with a great Copper / Cedar color and a creamy white head with lots of those peaks and valleys I love.  Lotsa lacing on the glass - a nice etched Sierra Nevada Imperial Pint Glass that I picked up at the Brewery in Chico a few months ago.  You can get one too over here:

Sierra Nevada Imperial Pint Glass ----- only $3.50

If you have not tried this year's Celebration Ale, get yourself on over to your neighborhood Ale Shop and grab a sixer - you won't regret it!
