Deschutes Brewing Foray Belgian IPA

Greetings on this warm Friday afternoon.  Hope you are doing well and keeping cool.  I've retreated to the cool dark depths of the Pinhead Studios to play some pinball and crack open a cold one.  Today I have a 22 ounce bomber open of Deschutes Brewing Foray Belgian IPA.  I was recently up in Portland and grabbed a great "can" glass that Powell's books was selling and thought the Deschutes would fit perfectly in the glass as one of the brewery's pubs is just a few blocks away.

This beer pours a very pale yellow with a nice white frothy head.  Smells of pears and bananas and a bit of citrus.  On the tongue - first with the bitterness of the 60 IBU, then some more Belgian yeast notes and a cascade of citrus from the Galaxy and Mosaic hops.  The finish is a nice crackery malt goodness from the Pilsner malts.  Great beer if you can find it in your neck of the woods,  It is a seasonal only offered in Summer.

If you have never been to the main Powell's bookstore in downtown Portland, you need to get there.  Music books, Science Fiction, a wonderful coffee shop and the best staff around.  I was able to pick up a hardcover of "High Fidelity" by Nick Hornby for a tenner.  Much needed, as the paperback copy I have is in tatters from multiple readings.  Now I can circle and outline some of my favorite quotes in the hardback!

2012 Berryessa Gap Zinfandel

It's a Red Wine Sunday with one of my favorite Zinfandels.  The Berryessa Gap winery has been producing a very consistently good Zinfandel for the last 5 years.  Tried there 2006 vintage back in 2009 and loved it.  I've never looked back from then on, buying at least one or two bottles each vintage - excellent small winery.

Dark rich purplish red in the glass with a wonderful nose, full of that Zinfandel perfume.  On the tongue brambly blackberry with some nice tartness.  Smooth on the back of the tongur with a bit of warming goodness.  Should go well with the grilled Salmon and mango salsa on the menu tonight.
