Grim Reaper's Eulogy
A second "ghost writer" has come calling. When I get around to some of this ale, I'll add my two cents. The following comments do not represent my personal views, so tough noogies if you don't like them:

Ghost Writer's Eulogy
Belgian-influenced pale ale – go figure in Stillwater you’d think it would be influenced by some square headed Norwegian but they don’t know crap about beer. But I speak from ignorance – my wife is Norwegian.

Anyway – all the farmer’s daughter jokes aside – this farm girl is no slouch and tastes shall I dare say fabulous. Blue Moon move over. Great summer outdoor beer – I had six before I knew it in my backyard last Sunday avoiding the crowd at Lumberjack Days. They don’t sell liquor in this lousy state on Sunday (in stores) so I was forced to catch a ride downtown to consume three more at me favorite tavern before the fireworks.

You must try one, or twelve of these before the Reaper comes calling on you for real!

UPDATE 7/14/2010 - My two cents - - -The Grim Reaper agrees with TK.  This is simply a great summer ale that you can open, empty, rinse and repeat.  I thought it had quite good character for a Belgian style Farmhouse ale and was surprised at how much I wished there was another.  Someday, I hope to sample more of this Minnesota bottled gold.
