Yazoo Fortuitous Review

The bottom line: If you find some, get it.

Sam Adams Infinium

Here at Truthtrain.com we love our beer.  As an alternative to Champagne this New Years Eve, we decided to try Infinium, a collaboration between Boston Brewing Co. and Weihenstephan Brewery in Germany. Infinium is made with only the four traditional ingredients: malted barley, hops, water and yeast.  Dispite it’s simple ingredients, Infinium achieves  a crisp champagne-like beer with fine bubbles and a fruity, spicy aroma. Additionally, the alcohol content is approx. 10.3%, so it is similar to the champagne that you were thinking of buying.

Ringing in at around $20, this brew might be a great substitute for your next formal occasion!

Bud Select 55

Budweiser is to be commended for trying to keep up with the other beer brands.  It seems like we’ll soon have ten calorie beer.  Unfortunately, Budweiser doesn’t succeed in their most recent effort, Bud Select 55.

The brew is very light and doesn’t have a tremendous amount of flavor.  I also felt the beer had the usual skunky taste that comes with other clear bottled beers, due to light exposure.  I’ve had Bud Select, which comes in a brown bottle, it has 99 calories and has more flavor.

If you are watching your calories, but still want to have a brew or two, go with the Bud Select 99.  You’ll be glad you did.

New Belgium – Blue Paddle

New Belgium has released a new beer called Blue Paddle.  I tried a few this weekend and really enjoyed them.  Blue Paddle;  New Belgium’s first venture into lagers, is a crisp, refreshing brew.  It doesn’t appear to be a seasonal item,  as it has been added to New Belgium’s core beer list.

I do find it odd it was not released in the spring, but new beers from New Belgium, whenever they might be released, are always a welcome sight.

All Aboard!

Yazoo Wassail

Yazoo Brewing Co. from Nashville, TN has released their seasonal brew, Wassail.  You can only get this brew on draft, but it is worth searching for.  Last night, I went to the brewery and picked up a growler.  It’s a great winter warmer, with a rich brown color and a spicy finish.  Enjoy!

All Aboard!
