Pic(k) of the Week: Cheese plate with beer.

Cheese plate with beer

In the foreground:
  • Ossau-Iraty (sheep's milk: Spain)
    Me: Firm paté; grassy and nutty.
  • Cherokee Rose (raw cow's milk: Georgia)
    Me: slightly tangy.
  • Pierre Robert (cow's milk: France)
    Me: luscious triple-crème with hint of mushrooms.
In the background:
  • Pernicious IPA
    (from Wicked Weed Brewing, in Asheville, North Carolina).
    • 7.5% alcohol-by-volume (abv)
    • ?? IBUs (International Bittering Units), but assuming many. *
    • Me: Excellent clarity and good conditioning; juicy, sharply-etched hops; alliaceous hint.
Enjoyed at Porter Beer Bar, in Atlanta, Georgia's Little 5 Points neighborhood, on 11 February 2016.

  • * At its website, Wicked Weed lists alcohol content for the beer, but no other specs, such as IBUs (or ingredients). That's the brewery's proprietary right, of course. But the omission is off-putting.
  • Pic(k) of the Week: one in a weekly series of personal photos, usually posted on Saturdays, and often, but not always, with a good fermentable as the subject. Camera: Samsung Galaxy 4. PhotoShop Elements: levels adjustment.
