Voodoo Bengal

So, there we were minding our business. We were innocently walking down Bourbon Street in the sweltering New Orleans heat.

We decided to duck into a little bar to cool off with a refreshing beverage.

The next thing we know we're getting our asses slapped by complete and total strangers.

WTF just happened??

Oh, it's the French Quarter. Duh!

We wound up at Spirits which was recently the subject of Spike TV's 'Bar Rescue'.

I don't know what it was like then, but it was awfully fun now! The drinks were delish and the staff was super friendly and accommodating.

Our server got kind of friendly with me when I sat in the Barber Chair. I thought it was just cuz I'm so friggin' cute; apparently, it was just something else I'm totally clueless about. (If you're ever there, sit in the Barber Chair. You won't be disappointed!)

Sooooooo . . . .

Besides getting my butt smacked, getting booze poured down my throat, and having my face rubbed into a pair of remarkably pillowing boobies, I actually did drink beer.

I had a Voodoo Bengal brewed by Tin Roof. A new-to-me beer and a new-to-me brewery. Double win!

Voodoo Bengal (5.50% ABV) is an American Pale Ale.

It pours (into a plastic beer cup) a reddish amber color with a floofy off-white head.

The aroma is mouthwatering citrus and sweet malts.

The taste was wonderfully refreshing. The tart citrus truly hit the spot. The mild bitterness was offset nicely by sweet caramelly malts and earthy nuttiness. The finish is a gentle lingering bitterness.

The mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation.

Voodoo Bengal is a well put together beer with fantastic balance.

Overall: very good
