Excuse Me, Homes? What It Is?

Beer # 74 St. Louis Gueuze Fond Tradition / Brouwerij van Honsebrouck, Ingelmunster, Belgium

Today's dinner conversation centered around us turning our blog into a best selling book, which will then become a top grossing movie:
Gary: "I wonder if I should call Jake Gyllenhaal to make sure he's available to play me in the movie?"
Marci: "Maybe send him a tweet; he's modern. But he's not hot enough."
Gary: "Look, you want Ryan Gosling, but I don't think he's masculine enough, and let's face it, James Franco is too much of a wild card."
Marci: "George Clooney!"
Gary: "Too old, maybe he can play my dad."
Marci: "That would be too awkward when I want to bone George Clooney."

So there you have it folks, we're still sticking with Jake Gyllenhaal to play me in the film adaptation of our beer adventure.  However, I'm happy to entertain other ideas, should you have any.

After back to back beers with chocolate, roasted flavors, we're going in an opposite direction with today's beer, the St. Louis Gueuze Fond Tradition, a lambic from Brouwerij van Honsebrouck.  It pours a hazy gold, and instantly you get a tart citrus aroma.  It's a very effervescent beer, with nice, crisp flavors of bread and lemon, with a sour element as well.  Very well done.  If you like lambics, this one is a keeper.  If you're not a fan of lambics, then you're missing out on some great beers!

Thing to Think About Today:
I realize the pronunciation on this beer is more "Sant Lou-eee" than "Saint Loo-is" but if we're even remotely thinking about St. Louis, then we should stop and ask for directions!  Particularly when in sunny East St. Louis... (warning: completely not safe for work, unless your employer is totes cool with 80's inner city stereotypes and profanity.  In which case, fire away!)

Now, I know what you're saying: "What's up with clicking a link; why didn't you just embed the video like you usually do when posting a video?"

The answer to that question can be defined as: this site host + youtube videos = occasionally a pain in the ass.  Look, just click the link, ok?  Guaranteed to be worth it.
