While the other half and I were in Philly, we made reservations at Amada. Since we got to Old City about 45 minutes before our reservation, we stopped by Eulogy to kill some time. I got their house beer, which was on tap. I hadn’t been there in almost 4 years, but my biggest complaint was that the table tops were uneven because they were made of hammered copper, so you needed to find a relatively flat place to leave your beer, otherwise the glass would fall over. Anyways, let’s see how the brew was.
Style: Belgian Pale Ale
Trivia: According to visitphilly.com, “Claiming Philadelphia’s largest beer selection, the European beer and food laboratory owned by a first-generation Belgian-American pours more than 300 international bottles and 25 draughts. Ranked as the fifth best beer restaurant in the U.S. by ratebeer.com and one of the five best by Nightclub & Bar magazine, the two-story emporium’s menu includes ‘Eulogy’s Busty Blonde’ brewed exclusively for Eulogy by La Binchoise Brewery in Belgium.”
Random: The Giants aren’t looking so terrible today. But it’s still early.
This beer poured with a one finger, thick off white head that was slow to dissipate. It left some lacing on the goblet. The body was a dusky, dark orange with moderate carbonation visible. The nose was big with golden fruit and raisins with light citrus. The taste had notes of light citrus with golden raisins and honey and Belgian yeast. Despite the big flavors, it was incredibly bright. It had a thick body with moderate carbonation. The finish was long and fruity with bready yeast. I thought this beer was pretty good and would have it again. If you find yourself at Eulogy, it’s worth a try.
