Chateau Clerc Milon - Grand Cru Classe de Pauillac - 2002 Very strong and vivid Bordeaux, extremely delicate, a great way to clise our trip to France

Pere Jacques by Goose Island Matilda is the other one from this Chicago brewer (who unfortunately got bought by Anheiser Busch not so long ago) that I'm a huge fan of. This is a darker belgian ale at 8.5%, spices, plums, honey smelling. Really good in theory but slightly below the level of Matilda

Whale's Tale Pale Ale from the Cisco Brewers in Nantucket - not my usual kind since a lot more bitter than my fave belgian productions but really gor used to it

Dogfish Head's Raison d'Etre The description of this ale says it all: "A deep mahogany ale brewed with Belgian beet sugars, green raisins and a sense of purpose" (aka Raison d'Etre in french). 8%, dark, deep perfumes, heavy body...

Green's Ale - Tripel from Belgium Interestig one, gluten free, strobg (8.5%) although more bitter than a traditional belgium ale. Smells spice bread, aged apples and honey... Pretty good overall!

Chateau de Fieuzal - White Pessac Leognan (Bordeaux) - 2005 One of my favorite white Pessac, extremely mineral, long en bouche and very elegant

Awesome ale from the Pretty Things brewery. On the lighter side for me with only 6% alcohol, slightly bitter, it's a perfect one for the coming fall
