The Whole Foods in Fairfax has a keg of Founders Devil Dancer they're planning on tapping soon.


Niiiice.
The Fairfax Total Wine must have recently received a shipment from Founders. They had Curmudgeon and Cerise but I didn't notice Devil Dancer.

You already have, sort of.

ratebeer calls it an ipa
beeradvocate calls in an american pale wheat ale (but at 7.5 abv it's more in line with the abv of an ipa)
i call it yummy


A Little Sumpin' Sumpin' Ale
Sneaky Smooth with a Touch of What We Call Wheatly-esque-ish-ness. Crispy Wheat and Pale Malt flavors with a Big Round & Juicy Hop Finish. Everyone Needs A Little Sumpin? Sumpin? Sometimes. You Can Get It All Year Now... in a Six-Pack!

ABV: 7.5%



i wonder what a wheat IPA is like.  anyone tried one?

What is it? A Russian beer?

Maybe a first, a spammer who not only trashes the place but also starts to participate in the discussions.  ::)

I'm really into saisons a.k.a. farmhouse ales lately. They make for good summertime drinking, I think. Refreshing, but still with plenty of flavor and complexity.

The quintessential saison is Saison Dupont. Fantastic, of course, but it's very expensive.



But I was really impressed with Stillwater Artisanal's Stateside Saison (American Farmhouse Ale):



Also, Franklin's Brewery/Restaurant in Hyattsville had a fantastic saison some months ago. Alas, it was a very limited seasonal batch, but I hope they bring it back!

Darth Ed,

Have you tried Hennepin? As good as Saison Dupont (which is indeed very good), but cheaper.

Goose Island Sofie is also very good. Have to remember to bring home a four pack the next time I go to Chicago.

No, I haven't. I'll look for it. Thanks for the recommendation.

Speaking of farmhouse ales, I have really been enjoying Boulevard's Tank 7 this summer.

I also tried Rodenbach's Grand Cru recently (on tap). Wow, it is way out there in terms of flavor. Almost like a lambic in terms of intensity, but the flavors were complex and hard to pin down. Very tart grape/cherry-like fruitiness combined with a balsamic vinegar almost. It almost tasted like a wine instead of a beer. Not for everyone, clearly, but I found it pretty interesting.

Thanks for the tip. Will have to stop in when I'm in Columbia for...Freefest? Wilco?

Are they in 12 oz four packs or only in a bomber?

I prefer four packs...I usually see the "special" Goose Island beers in bombers more than four packs around here. Though I did find a four pack of Matilda at Whole Foods in Dupont last fall.
