Braubacker Berliner Weisse: 4.0 – I know that this is the kind of beer that beer nerds would go crazy for over the complexity of its sour flavor. Overall though at the end of the day – it’s just not an enjoyable beer.

Smuttynose Zennike: 6.0 – This is one of my favorite beers. Certainly a great stout, and it’s got such a great deal of flavor. It balances this though by not being too powerful or rich or heavy that would turn the beer into an ordeal.

Looking back at the Silver version of this, and it seems this Tequila is just unable to provide anything in the way of impact. Tequila should be bold flavored or at least complex. Tequila like this is the worst kind of tequila because even the gutter trash shit that burns both ways is at least good for a story. This is good for white trash people who want to have lemonade but call a margarita and check out of parties early to go to bed.
Apparently there is an actual day called Bastille Day (and there go the the French readers), and I decided to actually pick this up on said day. I bought it mostly though because look at the damn thing – it’s magnificent, fairly good value, and if you asked if it was more a bourbon or a scotch I’d wonder if the Frenchie is wearing a kilt.
