It's Friday, and we're doing take-out Chinese food for dinner, with a movie and some beer to follow. Not a bad way to end the week by any stretch of the imagination.
Tonight's beer is the Julius Echter Hefe-Weiss from Würzburger. It comes out of the bottle with a hazy yellow, with a lingering thin white head, and gives off aromas of grain, malt, and banana. The taste is classic hefeweizen - banana, clove, wheat, and bubblegum, with a clean light finish. If you love hefeweizens, this one needs to be on your list, and soon.
Würzburger is storied brewery, founded in 1643 by Prince-Bishop Johann Philipp von Schönborn. Prince-Bishop is one badass title, if you ask my opinion. All the funk of Prince, plus the strong pimp hand of Bishop (Don Magic Juan, that is).

Thing to Think About Today:
A bit more on heart. Sometimes, the winners aren't strictly the ones who go home with shiny medals around their necks. Take for example, the story of Derek Redmond. A pulled hamstring got very much in the way of a podium finish for Redmond at the '92 Olympics, but it didn't get in the way of him proving he had a heart of a champion.
