Winesday Wednesday 8/5/15

Happy Winesday Wednesday friends!

I don’t know why, but I just haven’t been feeling the booze lately. I’ll have a craving for a margarita or a beer, but only really enjoy the first few sips. Can I blame motherhood? Maybe I’ll be more inclined once I’m done breastfeeding.

Although I didn’t get into it this past week, I still have a new beer to share with you! Tyler picked up a six pack of Steamworks Killer Cucumber Ale to try. From the website: A light summer ale “dry hopped” with organic cucumbers in the fermentor, and again in the conditioning vessel. Bready malt along with citrusy and earth hops in the background supports the refreshing cucumber nose and palate. Belgian yeast rounds out the profile with a hint of apricot and black pepper, while high carbonation and medium-light body add a thirst-quenching finish.

I took a sip and all I could think was that it tasted like a bucket of weeds. I don’t think I could have more than one of these…if that. The cucumber taste was pretty strong (not sure about the apricot or pepper as noted above). It was interesting to try, but I don’t think we’ll be purchasing it again. There’s still some in the fridge if anyone’s interested.

Since I’m pretty lame with this week’s post, here’s some booze-related articles for your reading pleasure:
