CLEARING THE CACHE WITH “BEER HAIKU”
So let’s try something new to “clear the cache” of beer reviews tapped into my phone. I’ve never written haiku before, I don’t think, but seeing as I just had sushi the last two nights, I’m in a Japanese frame of mind. I really think so. Here are a few beers I’ve tried over the past month that we just haven’t gotten to reviewing here on the HBJ:
ABBAYE DES ROCS BRUNE (pictured here)
Oh, English brown ale/ Not Tripel Imperiale / Where’s the alcohol?
UNIBROUE “EAU BENITE”
One superb tripel / This isn’t La Fin Du Monde? / Yankees can’t get this
CERVEZA EL FLABIOL TORRADA
On draft in Spain bar / Made in Belgium, the dude said / I didn’t like it
CASCADE BREWING “APRICOT” (pictured to your right)
Fruity and tart, no head / Tartness lingers on mouth roof / Very good, not stellar
Dark ale – but wait / Who snuck lager in my house / No taste here at all
So I can’t write a haiku to save my life, it’s obvious – but I cleared five beers outta the cache and gave you a concise consumer guide to boot. What’s not to love.
