When the weather gets warm do you ever have a hard time imagining the cold?
In Colorado we get all seasons so it seems kind of silly but I literally can’t even imagine the winters we have as I sit in my house lacking motivation to do anything that is not directly in front of my fan…for scare of melting.
My brother in Ohio, who I am going to visit this week, calls to tell me that his power is out and it might not be back up until Friday (meaning it will be down for most of the time I am there). It probably won’t be too horribly different from my house since I have no A/C anyways…
But as I packed all my cute shorts and tank tops, one pair of jeans (though I can’t imagine wearing them), I considered bringing a light sweater. At the moment though all I could think was NO way I will wear this…it is too damn hot for anything but the bare minimum!
To help cure the horrid, hot weather the Petrus Aged Pale, an ale aged in oak casks and strongly made with apples, will provide a cold, refreshing drink.
Immediately following the release of the bottle cap…smells of apple cider tingled my nostrils.
The Petrus Aged Pale was almost like a cold apple cider but with more bite and less sweetness. The taste buds initially react to the upfront sour flavors but settle down in the finish. It is a fruity, tart and crisp beer. It is best COLD.
A favorite snack of mine is apple slices topped with cheddar cheese and jelly. It is a great hold-me-over until dinner or as a snack during the day. I have to admit though it was coincidence that I made this snack and then chose to open this beer not knowing what flavors lied ahead 🙂
