Wormwood Malt Liquor?

Recommended Posts

No, I don't want to try it. I am a certifiable beer snob and a rapidly learning absinthe student.

 

But just maybe, if this crap hits the market and allows people to become a little more familiar with absinthe and learn it won't make you trip-out, kill people or mutilate yourself, couldn't that be a positive first-step in absinthe education? Granted, they'd still have to learn "that ain't absinthe?"

 

Just another damn idealist.

Quote: "What's a beer snob?"

 

To me, turning my rather ample nose up to almost every major 'merican pilsner and savoring a well crafted brew and the artistry that went into it's creation. I consider a micro-Brewmaster at the very least a minor god and certainly, an artist worthy of adulation.

 

That being said, I have earned my snobbery stripes and consumed gallons of RBR, Busch, Schlitz, and every other watered-down suds sold by the Wal-Mart of beer companies. But not anymore.

 

I am curious what this Wormwood Malt Liquor tastes like. Not curious enough to try to get it to Montana but curious. Anyone willing to post a review of the stuff?

What a bunch of dupes.

 

They can say whatever they want in their ad copy, but you know the people in the field actually handing out this crap are coming right out and telling people that this stuff might as well be absinthe.

 

 

Dead on. I remember when that Josta stuff came out. I was a freshman in college, and they had field (idiots) 'reps' giviing it out free to college kids and saying that Guarana (caffine) was like pot, acid, meth... whatever they wanted at whoever came by.

Wait a minute, I thought Guarana was a tropical fruit.

 

Guarana or Guaraná (pronounced gwa-ra-'naa), Paullinia cupana (syn. P. crysan, P. sorbilis), is a shrub or small tree in the Sapindaceae, native to Venezuela and northern Brazil, known for the high stimulant content of the fruit. The name 'guaraná' comes from the Tupi-Guarani word wara'ná. Guaraná plays a very important role in their culture, as this plant is believed to be magical, a cure for bowel complaints and a way to regain strength. They also tell the myth of a 'Divine Child', that was killed by a serpent and whose eyes gave birth to this plant.

 

I get it, nevermind

ok...stay with me here, im gonna just imagine something and pose a theoretical question:

 

Although these people are idiots...granted, They more than likely know nothing about about absinthe...yes. But what if something like this is the key to getting wormwood products legal in the US again? i know its a stretch but mark my words...if its ever going to happen it would be something subtle like that. Anyone else agree?

 

Thanks and dont kick me in the nuts,

Aaron
