Beer Two: Liquid Gravity Brewing: Mo Diggity DDH WCIPA. 7%. All Mosaic Hop. 16oz can.
Beer Three: East Brother Brewing : Gold IPA (same as beer one).
Drinking session: 8PM to Midnight.
Setup: Foot long tuna Subway sandwich at 6:00 PM (slightly embarrassing – work dinner). No food afterwards.
Water: 16oz of water during drinking session.
Normally I drink two 16oz beers a session with an occasional 12oz or 16oz beer. And I usually don’t have more than a Level 1 hangover (aware I had beers the previous night but no headache or sluggishness).
Verdict: I think the combo of only one glass of water, not a lot of food for a base and a slight uptick in alcohol consumed all contributed to this morning’s headache heavy hangover.
I want just one of you, ONE OF YOU, to admit that Allagash White is not for everyone.
It is a niche style beer!!
Hello!? McFly!? Think, McFly, think.
Belgian Yeast and Wheat Beer in general, kinda fucking suck… well, suck to a lot of people anyway. Allagash White Fan always fails to mention this when complaining.
And then there is the disconnect of what the upper beer geek crust thinks Untappd is and what it actually is.
I mean really, how long is it going to take you Untappd haters to understand the app? It is not for rating a beer on how well it is made. Nope.
It is an app for rating how a beer tastes to a person. A human beer drinker. Not a brewer, or Beer Twitter, or Beer Instagram.
So when you understand the context, 3.76 is a very good rating for a shit style. Is there a Belgian Yeast inspired Wheat Beer ranking higher? I’m not going to take the time to figure it out but it’s HIGHLY doubtful.
I now present to you the most accurate Allagash White rating on Untappd:
Belgian Yeast is the Brussel Sprout of the beer world. Loved by some, disliked by most.
So Allagash White Dude should be happy with that rating. And maybe shut the hell up, for once.
I did not think it was going to go down like this. It’s red.
When I saw “fruited” West Coast IPA, my mind went to tropical; orange and pineapple. Turns out it’s cranberry and orange.
I am not too big into cranberry in beer. So it was a shock. Not expecting a beer billed as a West Coast to be like that. Not here to say it’s wrong to bring WC into it, just here to say it’s weird, dude.
But hey, I got through it. Not mad. Maybe even glad, as I would have never tried if if I had known about the berry action, so I guess I am expanding my palate and junk.
That said, I am making sure my next beer is not red.
