Blind Belgian Tasting

 The Columbia Beer Enthusiasts had a blind Belgian tasting today at Phil's house. The finally tally is:

The winner: Urthel Samaranth Quad (the only genuine Belgian in the bunch)

2nd Place: Choc Dubbel (Oklahoma)

3rd Place: Trippel (John Cannon's homebrew)

4th: Bruery Saison Rue (California)

5th: Dubbel (David Bowen's homebrew)

6th: Old Ale (Phil Fuemmeler's homebrew)

7th: Bruery Orchard White Witbier (California)
8th: Trippel (brewed with British yeast) (John Cannon homebrew)

Thanks to Phil who hosted and created the scorecards to help us navigate our way through the Belgians. We scored each one on bouquet/aroma, appearance, flavor, mouthfeel, and overall impression. Just for fun, we also guessed whether each was really made in Belgium or not. The only was that was from Belgium ranked number one, the quad.
