Magic Hat Brewery turns out some of the funkiest brews on the East Coast. If you doubt this in the least, please visit the Magic Hat site. Their Saint Goontz is a dark wheat ale and if you love the crust on a sandwich (ok, who loves the crust on bread….really?) then this wonderfully wheaty brew is for you. Deep bark brown, this ‘blessed ale’ has the chickory flavor of chestnuts, with a pleasant yeasty aftertaste.
I may be harsh on this beer being that I am bitter today. This beer is also bitter, so all I can say is, “Oh Fudge,” in memory of Darren McGavin. Yes, the “Old Man” has lost his battle with the furnace. Nothing short of a sexy leg lamp could cheer me up, so this dark elixer from Magic Hat has left me sour and bitter.
All I can do is say a prayer.
