This my weekly column of beer reviews. I’ll be reviewing different beers in this column each week, so make sure you tune in. This week, I’ll be reviewing one of the most interesting beers to come out of the Belgian beer scene in recent memory. Today I’m reviewing La Folie from La Folie Brewing . La Folie was brewed with peaches and is made in conjunction with an online game called Monopoly. This beer was featured in a 2011 issue of The Craft Beer Cellar Magazine and you can read more about it here .
Beer Name:Black Fire Ale
Style: English Barleywine
Review: The head is a nice light brown color, it has a nice retention and relatively thick, but clean looking ring that lasts through the glass. No lacing, and a nice amount of foam. Dry sweet beer, malty, with a sugary finish. This is pretty darn tasty.
Beer Name:Herberholz Spalt
Style: American Saison
Review: It pours a hazy golden that tops with a nice thick layer of white head that clings to the glass like a few friends. The nose is big and sweet like the taste. It almost tastes like a Hersbrupp brew that is freshly made. There is a sweetness and a touch of alcohol towards the end. The mouthfeel is smooth and the beer is very tasty. This is a very drinkable beer.
Beer Name:The Bruery Triple IPA
Style: American Double / Imperial IPA
Review: Poured from a 12oz. brown bottle into a tulip. Commonly known as the Triple IPA, but this one’s a bit more obscure than a typical Double. Pours a hazy gold with a thick, white, white head that expels to a nice film of foam that rivals any beer head that’s ever been seen. The nose has a hint of caramel, hops and some citrus. The taste is pretty much as advertised. Bit more citrus and the alcohol is quite evident in the aftertaste. Mouthfeel is medium (hybrid) with a little bit of a bitter aftertaste. The Triple IPA is a decent beer, certainly worth seeking out. This is a solid great beer, and I’d love to see some good offerings around in the year ahead.
note: If you couldn’t tell, this stuff is AI-generated. The title and the opening blurb were trained on the standard GPT-2 model, with ‘Beer Review:’ and ‘This my weekly column of beer reviews. ‘ given as prompts. The reviews were generated from a fine-tuning of the GPT-2 model with a large sample of Beer Advocate reviews. I selected from the saved samples of these and put this post together. I have not yet figured out how to train an algorithm to generate me beer photos.
