That's the command we received after marching away from our 0630 formation this morning. It was cooler this morning, but nothing unbearable. I think my sergeants are just eager for this week to end. Can't say I disagree with them; I've been juggled around in a predeployment medical bureaucracy for over a week now.
I pick this one up last weekend because it was next to the Unibroue offerings and because it had apparently won the World Beer Cup for its class three separate years. I started off pretty unimpressed; it's lighter in body than other tripels and a little hoppier, but generally less bombastic in flavors. I wasn't a fan for the first glass, but subsequent tastes got better until I was a little sad to finish it off. Does this abbey ale have a complexity that only reveals itself over time? Was I just getting used to its particular flavor profile? Or maybe the 9.5% ABV was influencing my change in affection? Probably a combination of the three, but tasting is not an empirical pastime and analysis can only take you so far. I doubt I'll get it again, but I wouldn't call it bad either.
