Did I miss something?
A few Italian beers at Eataly (Chicago):

baladin Nora (spiced with citrus, ginger, and myrrh- delicious...like a Blue Moon that is actually good)

baladin Super (caramel, malty, heavy- half glass was enough for me)

Birra Del Borgo ReAle Extra (classic IPA flavors, very enjoyable. Bought a humongous bottle for a party tonight)

Overall I really liked Eataly- if you don't mind dropping some coin it's a great visit. The meat and cheese selections were impressive, and I enjoyed margherita pizza and braised short rib pasta from La Pizza & La Pasta.
Taken to lunch by my youngest today. Dogfish Alehouse. Burton Baton, Bitches Brew and Worldwide Stout. Glad that chauffeur service was included with lunch. Winner

Very nice! The wife's in Wisconsin right now, so I have some Spotted Cow on the way. Big Grin
Distorter Porter by Greenbush Brewing from Sawyer, MI. Nice. Super dark color with baker's chocolate and coffee notes. Not heavy, syrupy, or sweet.

Now that's a good woman! The Stone Soup is a nice winteresque-ale worth checking a second bag...

I say we debate this very divisive issue over a beverage sometime. I need education on bubbles. The 96 Duval-Leroy was eye-opening and perhaps the best I've experienced. Rumor has it you might have some passion around these wines. Wink I work too much and have far too little pleasure while in Dallas. I think I've got a solid position. Any woman that will boot-leg good, check that, great beer for you? That's a good start. Many other qualifications need to be evaluated, naturally... LOL

In addition to the Spotted Cow, she's also bringing back a '95 La Mish & (2) '08 Dunn HM's. I'd say she's a pretty damn good woman. Cool

Didn't like this at all. Aged on raspberries in wine barrels. Yuck.

I think I may have preferred the Lolita to the Juliet, but I think they both fit tlv's description. I've got one more of that style to go (I believe it's Gillian). Needless to say, I will stick with Matilda, Sofie, Pere Jacques, etc. from now on.

The Juliet is aged with blackberries and is considered a Belgian Style Wild Ale along with the Lolita. The Gillian is a Belgian Style Farmhouse Ale and is not supposed to be as fruit driven. I haven't had the Gillian yet, but it sounds interesting at least. I'm not a fan of fruit in my beer in general.

Thanks for the info...I always did prefer raspberries to blackberries.

I'll be sure to let you all know when I finally get to the Gillian.

At Duke's tonight:

Westmalle Trappist Tripel
Westmalle Trappist Dubbel

I much preferred the Dubbel tonight. Both excellent though.
Not a lot made it to Toronto, but I picked up 4 packs before they were gone.
