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[*1] .
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.
