Dave's first solo brew re-visted

OK, today sucked! And yesterday was no picnic either... A 14 hour day yesterday, and I Worked all day in the heat, my neck and face are burnt from the sun, my dogs are killing me! Let's just say, combat boots are not designed for comfort. But I digress...

After a couple of days of hard work, I got home and decided to crack open one of Dave's first solo home brews. While I liked it well enough earlier in the week, I think sampling it immediately following our IPA was not a fair method of tasting his brew. You don't want to start off with something very flavorful, and then go to something more easy going. Your taste bud won't get what's going on.

So, as I drove home, a sweaty mess in my uniform, I suddenly thought, "Man I could go for one of Dave's weizens right now, I bet that would be really refreshing."

The bottles were too small to fill a weizen glass, so this (flute glass?) seemed like a better fit...

I nailed it right on the head! I poured the brew into that special glass I got from Brooklyn Brewery, the gold rimmed one they served their Local 1 in... And as you can see for the image below, the beer did not stay in that gilded glass for long...

Dave's beer was not long for this world...

Dave's weizen was both refreshing and flavorful today. My intense thirst combined with a clean pallet allowed that flavor to come forward. Wheat and citrusy goodness abounds! A great beer for a hot summer day! Well done Dave, well done... I might need to make quick work of the other one in the fridge!
