I like it during the summer, when I am reallly thirsty, it's a good thirst-killer..

I like Hefeweizen quite much, always take it when we are out... Paulaner, weihenstephan, Erdinger, Sammeth or Guthmann's....
not so much the "real" beer, maybe a Hasseroeder...

While I certainly cannot hold my own against Ronjohn, I sure do love beer. I mostly stick to microbrews, but not exclusively. Some that are usually in my fridge at any given time are Sam Adams, Harpoon, Sierra Nevada, Long Trail, Guinness, Bass, just to name a very few. There is as much variety in beer these days as there is in wine.

I'm not sure if this is what you're talking about... but I know they have fruit flavored beer-esque beverages from that region called Lambics. If anybody ever bothers to read about the naturally occurring yeast in the area and the fermentation processs, it's actually quite interesting. I usually don't drink lambic straight though, I'll use about 2 oz to flavor a bottle of stout.

Sam Adams comes out with Cranberry Lambic aound Thanksgiving every year. It is great stuff. I am usually not crazy about fruity beers, but this one is very good!

Blech!!! That Sam Adams stuff is NOT a lambic!!! (Actually, it's not that bad, but it isn't really a lambic - but that's more of an appellation discussion).

Yes, I like beer. I drink beer. I make beer. I judge beer in competitions. At one point, I had over 250 gallons of beer at the house (5 gallons is about equal to two cases of 12oz longnecks).

I haven't taken an inventory lately, but I can at least vouch for the 30 gallons in the fermenters (a cream ale, a pale ale, a gueuze lambic and a frambois lambic). Plus a case and a half of barleywine. Next up is probably a batch of strong belgian golden ale.

cranberry, GB? Where was I when that was at the store? Darn! Looks like I'll have to keep my eyes out for that one! (oh yes, and pumpkin ale - finally tried it. Very yummy aftertaste)

That Sam Adams one was the first time I had ever heard of Lambic. Actually I thought it was just a name they made up lol. I will have to try the real stuff when I get the chance!
