Having completely recovered from my India Pale Ale experience the other night, I ready a glass of the third in the Smokestack Series of ales from Kansas City's Boulevard Brewing Company
The Long Strange Tripel ale is lighter in color, and in flavor than either of the previous two entries in the Smokestack Series that I've sampled. It is of course a more full-bodied beer than the mass market Bud/Miller/Coors stuff, and probably a bit more full than Boulevard's Wheat beer. It is not bitter at all (danke Gott) and I deem it most agreeable.
Now, all I need is a Jackrabbits win in men's basketball vs. San Jose State tonight, and the evening will be complete.
