We're back! The first Beer Talk Today of 2009 and we got off to a great start, sitting down with Barriques beer purchaser David Sanborn. David let us (Kyle, Jon, Matt and our Madison Beer Review associate Jeff Glazer) raid his amazing aged beer collection, and pick his brain about aging beer. Part one of the aged beer tasting includes tastings of Boon Oude Kriek Mariage Parfait, Drie Fonteinen Kriek, Cuvee De Koninck, and Fuller's 1845.
What beers get better with age? What beers get worse? What beer tastes like Pez? How about "rustic barn"? You must listen to find out.
Here's the mp3.
But wait, there's more. Outtakes! These clips were not particularly relevant to our discussion of aged beer, but are too entertaining to be ignored.
