Seems that wormwood sticks to your mouth for a while

Try harvesting a few hundred pounds! :twitchsmile:

As some of the higher ups in the forum ...

Lets just leave our state of mind out of this discussion, if you please. I didn't pour club soda in my Marteau, after all. ;)

The experience came in handy and may have saved a life. :harhar:
Some folks may cringe each time I use the term "Booze" regarding these high quality drinks.
I mean no offense. There are bottles of extraordinary booze out there. I've tasted a few. Relax.

*And by street gang, I mean the lot of us that get drunk and pass out on the concrete thing that cars drive on.

At least it's not Le Tourment Vert...

Further, another 'rule' is "Chill it if it tastes bad, and it won't taste as bad". It is bar none, the biggest reason (I feel) american beer, cheap vodka, and bad cheese are served cold.


I was once given a Budweiser, straight from a very cold fridge, that amazingly had absolutely no taste at all. After recovering from the surprise, I realized what a true blessing this was.

That was my first beer also and it was frozen. I'm a slow learner. *wink*

Could we safely say that the experience left you: "Sadder, Budweiser"?

' I learned abut beer'

No you didn't.

Sure he did.

Just like back in '99, when I drank Staro, and learned about absinthe. :rolleyes:

I started with La Fee around the same time. For its time? That was valhalla. How far we've come, and so quickly.

I didn't try La Fee until Justin brought a bottle here in 2002, along with Pernod 68.

Compared to the rest of shite out there, those were the top of the line.

It's been amazing evolution, indeed, over the past seven years.
