A friend of mine periodically makes a trip to Austin to visit her daughter, and while there, she visits Central Market. She often returns with a nice selection of beer (mostly European). She never fails to return with very good selections despite the fact that she apparently shops based on the aesthetic 'gotcha' of the bottle itself. Years ago, she brought me some Corsendonk (a Belgium abbey brown ale). I fell in love with this beer! A close second would have to be La Fin du Monde (a triple-fermented golden ale) The name, translated, is "the end of the world"---a nod to the early explorers who thought they'd reached the 'end of the world' when they happened upon America.

So when she was preparing for her trip, she asked me what I wanted her to bring back. I obviously requested Corsendonk. While there, she discovered they haven't stocked Corsendonk for several months. However, after discussion with an astute employee at Central Market, Maredsous was recommended based on my taste for the Corsendonk.

I must say, Maredsous (pronunciation link here) is my new favorite beer. This stuff is awesome! If you like beer (and I don't mean Keystone), give Maredsous a try.

You know, I'm not much of a beer drinker...but that looks kinda good. Ice cold, I bet. *G*

Actually, just a bit cooler than room temperature is the ideal drinking temp for a beer of this quality. You miss a lot of the flavor if it's too cold because your taste buds can't discern at lower temperatures. It's the reason domestic (shitty) beers are recommended to be served "ice cold". It's so you don't notice the imperfections from a hastily brewed, mass produced, low quality beer.
