Good to hear from you. Just haven't had much time to post lately. This virus has taken a toll on us at work. Wish I could spend more time and be a more informative poster. Good luck to your Irish this season... if we even have one.
I would go with the Peche n Bret (amazing fruit lambic) as well as the Seizoen Bretta if you can find them. Both are top notch. Very dry finish, sour but not overpowering and almost like a champagne mouth feel. Their Deep River Blues is a good fruit lambic. Good luck.
Kind of random but you asked me long ago if Logsdon’s Belgian style wild wild ales were better than those produced by Russian River. After many months of deliberation and libation the answer is yes. If you ever come across Logsdon Peche n Bret I would recommend giving it a go. It’s hands down my favorite of that style. Hope all is well and stay safe.
I know you're a fan of Malazan... have you read anything outside of the main series?
I tried Ian C. Esselmont's companion series. I liked the first entry, but couldn't get through the next book.
He's now writing a separate trilogy focusing on Cotillion and Shadowthrone, called 'Path to Ascendancy.'
He's improved his writing greatly, and has learned that his best style is just a linear narrative. I highly recommend you give 'Dancer's Lament' and 'Deadhouse Landing' a try if you have any time for leisure reading. They are quick and enjoyable, and do a good job of building on the Malazan universe. It's also fun to read about Kellanved and Cotillion before they became what they are in Erikson's main series.
(The trilogy finale, 'Kellanved's Reach,' drops on April 2.)
Erikson is also writing a Karsa Orlong trilogy right now. Hype.
