Broadening Our Horizons LXIV

I mentioned yesterday that we'd restocked our fridge o' many charms with some drinkable beer after that Sammy Adams debacle.  We also bought some new-to-me beer, that bein' a sixer o' these:

I was quite taken with the Monks' Ale I sampled a couple o' weeks ago so it wasn't much of a gamble to buy some more of the Brothers' product.  I generally like Wit beers and this is a high qualty example of the genre.  It's tasty, indeed.  Here's what the Brothers have to say about their beer:
Monks’ Wit is distinctly fruity and spicy. The yeast lends a note of spice that accentuates the imported coriander, sweet and bitter orange peel, and other spices. The malt provides a sweet, bready quality up front and a round fruitiness in the middle.  The wheat and oats lend a creamy taste. 
The imported hops and spices lend a clean, dry, finish to this light, refreshing ale.
Refreshing, indeed.  I think Monks' Wit will be a regular brew for me this summer.

So.  Here's some appropriate music for the occasion:

This is perhaps my favorite REM song and we have "Out of Time" in the CD player, as we speak. That said... We ain't so much losin' our religion as we are gainin' some. In one way or t'other.  Those monks are definitely helpin' out in this space.


  1. I thought I had commented on this saying that I Monks sounds like a beer that I would like. But who knows where that comment or thought went.

    1. I thought you commented on the Monks' Ale post, Lou, but I looked... and nada. So I dunno!


Just be polite... that's all I ask.
