Wine Whine

Post by smellody » February 12th 2022, 7:03pm

As I near the half century mark, I've started pondering why I can't aquire a taste for wine.

Wine tastes like ass (no jokes please Conjurer, I don't make cuntilinguis with butthole it's tastes like what I assume a butthole would taste like (not that there is anything wrong with that (in the French sense (if you know what I mean))).

I've tried for at least 30 years and still find it gross. It is bitter. It is not refreshing. It is not sweet.

Please don't get me wrong, I love rum and potato vodka (preferably with diet coke or even better, dr. Pepper Cherry ZERO).

This affliction, or potential disorder, has put me in several awkward situations. Including:
  • 1. I say know, and the other

Just a few years ago I would have said the same thing about Scotch. When I was younger I hated cilantro, it tasted like soap to me. Now I love it. My theory is that our taste buds change. Mostly they die, and flavors that once were perceived as awful are then appreciated. Typically one can enjoy hotter flavors and sweet flavors that were once enjoyed are perceived as cloying. In my experience.

Went through years of Vodka, then Scotch, then Irish and now Bourbon. Always loved beer but wine just doesnt do it for me. Ive tried, took a few classes. Ill drink it but cheap or expensive, its just wasted on me.

Beer is the same thing. Tastes like ass.
Again with the ass. LOL

If it tastes like that (skunky) it too old or you have stored it in a hot garage like my cousin used to do. Beer should never get warm or hot after it is shipped. A few exceptions do exist.

I tried to finish the additional 13.2 ounces of beer that purchased this morning that I didn't use for the corned beef.

I poured it down the sink. GROSS.

However, it did flavor the corned beef and cabbage perfectly.

If you think you dont like beer, IPAs are not the ones to start on. LOL Some are very hard to get down even if you love em. Thy a lager next time.

I know you know all this.

IPA :5wrew:
IF I drink an IPA, it’s mixed with hot sauce or spicy tomato juice. Usually that’s what I use to steam my crab and lobster though.

The current incarnation of the American IPA, while quite popular and fashionable, does not jibe with the profile of the original. India Pale Ales were brewed very highly hopped and at a high specific gravity to survive long voyages across the ocean. There they were literally watered down until palatable.

Absolutely correct. Thats why I said there were some exceptions to the always keep cold rule.

My first drunk was wine. Blush from a jug. There were cute girls involved. It left me with a hell of a hangover, then a hell of a palate. I can't drink crappy wine, but I love good wine. I avoid it, though. Too acidic.

I love English-style IPAs, and sadly for me, it's relatively hard to find. Even Summit, my favorite local/regional brewery took their excellent version off the regular brewing schedule and supposedly will make it... sometimes. I'm OK with some of the American styles, but I do not like West Coast IPA and I hate Cascade hops. My favorite beers are made by Trappists, and I'm a sucker for old ales, winter warmers, nut browns, etc. But I also like lawnmower beers... it's been Hamm's most recently.

Unfortunately, I also like the hard stuff. Whiskey, rum, tequila, gin, etc., but I don't do vodka. Anything vodka can do, gin can do better... at least the way I drink it. Also, I take off all my clothes except my shoes and wander around outside when I have too much vodka.
Is it safe?

Well, that comment about Vodka made me LOL.

I love the old ales also, my current favorite is Samuel Smiths Nut Brown Ale. Monk beer rules also. For IPAs I like Dogfish Head.

When Hamms first came out when I was in the AF, my room mate and I supported the brewery. Took a lot of 6 packs at 69 cents Ill tell ya.
