Happy Birthday to Ed C. and belated to EC!!!
I went to June's the other day. It was fun and she and Dennis were charming, as usual. This chicken katsu was delicious. June cuts a chunk of fresh chicken off, breads it in panko and fries it up to order.I ordered chop suey out of curiosity because I'd never had it. Can you tell how hot off the grill it was? It was Ok. It had cabbage, carrot, zucchini, and pork.
Sac Brewing Co. has a couple of brews on draft that were made with wild yeast. They have the Deschutes Dissident, which is the first wild yeast beer that Deshcutes has made and it has been aged for 18 months. I liked it, but not as much as any wild yeast Belgian. It was kinda thin tasting and bitter at the end. I liked the New Belgium one (Eric's ale) better. It was very wine-like, with a faint fruitiness from the peaches. Here's a description I found online at "the thirsty hopster" blog.: Eric’s Ale: “This Peche, or Peach beer, started as an ale aged in 130 hL wooden vessels called Foedres for 3 years. It was then transferred and real peaches were added. A second Strong Golden Ale was brewed and blended back into the sour ale. Subtle peach, tropical fruit and tart aromas in the nose, plus some vanilla and oak. The flavor is a balance of sweet and sour. A drinkable and refreshing sour beer hybrid.”
