So, in a pretty funny exchange yesterday my friend Michael gChatted me and said “DUDE! URGENT!!!” and it had a link attached. It linked to this:
So, I , the Three Floyds fanboy that has been seeking out Zombie Dust for quite a while, went to the tavern with some work folk to get dusted. And, not being a beer reviewer extraordinaire, all I can say is that it was great. But then again, there is little Three Floyds makes that isn’t (Gorch Fock didn’t blow me away). It had the signature Citra Hop flavor with a little more dryness to the mouthfeel, and the grapefruit notes were equally balanced with the orange that was heavy on the nose.
I read one Beer Advocate review of Zombie Dust that was particularly positive (all of them are actually) but this reviewer claimed a faint smell of “cat pee.” Now I can’t tell if that was stuck in my mind because I’ve been obsessively been speaking to my neighbors cat or if I actually got a whiff of “cat pee” too. But either way, it didn’t detract from the overall goodness.
When it was all said and done, I think that it’s fair to say that I wasn’t knocked over by how much of the’real deal’ Zombie Dust is simply because I’ve come to expect nothing but great things from Three Floyds. I can’t wait until they start creating more amazingness, bottle it, and bring it to Wisconsin.
