Southern Star Blood Belt

While browsing through the beer section of my local HEB I was approached by a man passing out beer samples. It was a guy from Southern Star Brewing Company giving out samples of several of their offerings. One of which was the Blood Belt, a great beer that my friend Shelby introduced me to a few months ago.

This beer is great. I love the blood orange flavor. I actually kind of have a thing for citrus, I really love sour and citrus! This means a nice tangy ale with citrus flavor is just right for me. Currently only a few stores around me sell it, but it is so good that I’m sure it will get wider distribution.

Sebastiani Sonoma Chardonnay 2009

What a great refreshing Chardonnay. If it’s a warm summer night and you just want to chill out and enjoy yourself, this is a great choice. This 2009 elixir has a smooth elegance and abundant orchard fruit flavors. Hailing from Sonoma County it displays unconventional citrus, mineral and slight acidity that you don’t normally see. It has a very subdued oak taste and a perfect texture to create a well balanced and delicious Chardonnay that won’t break the bank. This wine came in at just $12.99 at the time of purchase.

Balanced yet complex smooth refreshing drink.
