    Wee Heavy

    I love wee heavies. This is not a wee heavy. It's not even a Scotch Strong ale or a 90 shilling Scotch ale. It's the Diet-Coke of Scotch Ales, sporting neither a strong liquor [...]

    Avery Glasser: Brasserie Fantome, Belgium

    Brasserie Fantome

    Sighted at: Table and Vine, Northampton, MA.

    A new, revivalist brewery, Fantome specializes in Saison-style farmhouse ales. To denote specific brews that are exceptional, Fantome occasionally vintage dates selected beers.

    Spring 99 Saison
    An exceptional Saison, this beer is darker than most of the archetypical Saisons (ex: Saison Dupont). Garnet red in color, the Fantome supports a full, rocky beige head that maintains for a few minutes before dissolving.

    The initial aroma is that of sweetness, and when tasted, the Fantome awakens the tastebuds with a strong smoked/roasted taste found in German Rauschbiers or certain Scottish Ales. Though you might be inclined to serve a Saison cold, because of the smoked malts, if the beer is served too cold, the smoke will exhibit an unbalanced tartness... so serve it at cellar temperature (60 degrees) or even room temperature.

    Unique and certainly worth trying if you like smoky beers.

    Chris Ravlin: The Lion King

    Last year about this time, I bought tickets to see the Lion King production on Broadway. My wife had mentioned that she wanted to see the play and I thought that tickets would be a nice Christmas surprise. However, it was me who was surprised to find out that the play was sold out a year in advance. [...]
