Previously from this brewery: My take on Blue Sunday Sour, Marci's look at Dragon's Milk (both with interesting PSU stories in the background)
It's been a beautiful, sunny, relaxing Saturday here in the suburbs of Philly. Started the day by sleeping in (a rarity), then hit up yoga and made a delicious breakfast. The afternoon? Some peace and quiet, and a visit to Delaware to visit a brewery and drink beer with a stop at Total Wine to stock the wine cellar. I hope you're all doing something fun as well. You deserve it, after all.
Today's beer is Black Tulip, a Belgian Tripel from New Holland Brewing. In the glass, you see a clear bright amber hue, and you pick up the aroma of sweet malt. When you take a sip, you get a good bit of malt and plenty of candi sugar. (Side note: for those of you thinking I spelled "candy" wrong, I didn't. Check out more info on candi sugar here) There are subtle hints of citrus and spice along for the ride, and it finishes a bit dry. A very, very good beer, but I expect nothing else from New Holland, one of the premier breweries in the country.

Thing to Think About Today:
In the spirit of black (tulips), let's close with something black (um, backpacks?). Obviously that means we're listening to Stroke 9 and their popular-ish song Little Black Backpack. Enjoy your Saturday with this flashback to 2000.
