You can read my response to that question on the December 28th posting.
I did find out that Ron and his wife were drinking the Blue Moon out of the bottle.
Remember, good quality beers should always be drank from a good beer glass. Your beer glass should only be for beer only.
|I poured the Blue Moon out of the bottle down to the last couple of ounces.|
Here are the last two ounces. See all the sediment. The liquid looks white.
With bottle conditioned beer and unfiltered beer you will have sediment in the bottle that needs to be stirred up and poured into the glass to enjoy all the flavors and aromas that the beer has to offer. The reason all good beers should be poured into a glass is for the same reason – you want to enjoy all the aromas and flavors from the beer! When you can smell the aromas of a malted beverage the flavors will just follow.
|You can see some sediment still in the bottom of the bottle.|
Drinking out of a bottle or can you cannot enjoy the aromas. Miller, Bud, Coors, and other such beers can be enjoyed out of a bottle or can. One, these are not going to be called good beers here. Two, they don’t have any aromas to help taste the sugar sweetened yellow water. (Guinness Stout in the bottle or can has the little widget inside to help give you that tap beer taste. This beer you drink out of a can or bottle and do not pour it into a glass.)
Aroma: muted coriander only to me, no orange. Wait! That is a strange smell. I get the celery bottle out of the spice cabinet and give it a smell. Smells like … smell again … Blue Moon! Smell the bottle nothing. Perfect. If it smelled like coriander then the coriander smell would win out. But, when you smell celery (any aroma) then, smell another item with the same smell it will usually cancel out that aroma. I read that on an article about the science of smell. (I think I have the link to that on this blog. Look at the first months postings.)
Then, I tasted the Blue Moon after I cleared the air so to say. It taste like … oh, yes … CELERY!
Ron, go buy a spice bottle of celery and do this same experiment with your wife. Then, she may believe you. How do you like that a wife who doubted her loving husband.
