Beer 297: Trois Dames and a Pimp Paw

"Make sure you marry someone who laughs at the same things you do." —J.D.Salinger

Case in point: Last evening as we're getting ready for bed, Picasso was following Mr. Blog Named Brew around in anticipation of his bedtime cookie.  Picasso likes to sit directly behind whoever has the cookie and lift his front paw and sort of point with his stubby little dachshund paw. 

Last night's routine launched me into a rendition of Keep Your Pimp Paw Strong sung to the melody of the Howard Stern tribute Keep Your Pimp Hand StrongVideo here; you can skip to about 1:06 for the actual video and you don't need to watch past 1:30.

Picasso is a soulful singer but he does gravitate toward some violent lyrics.  He may have threatened to smack his bitch (Gary) up. There was also something about a milk bone... Lucky for me, Gary continues to be entertained by me so I have that going.

Tonight's beer is a Flanders red ale called Sainte Ni Touche from Brasserie Trois Dames in Switzerland.  It has an ABV of 9%.  It poured a hazy shade of chestnut with a thin off white head.  

The smell was a mild balsamic vinegar.  The flavor is tart with mineral chalkiness.  It's sour and dry and very refreshing and easy to drink.  

This is an excellent beer and kudos to TJ's Everyday for putting it on draft!  Cheers.
