My palate got a little confused, but I really liked the Primus, the blk abt and the Sir Halcyon, and enjoyed them all.

For dessert after all of that, I had an 8-ounce Black Albert, a 13-percent Belgian Royal Stout from De Struise that was big, rich and wonderful. A great day.

MAMA'S CROW BAR on Munjoy Hill hosted the release party for this year's Prince Tuesday beer -- a collaboration by Allagash, Maine Beer Co. and Rising Tide -- on Saturday.

Prince Tuesday is a Belgian rye that was initially brewed for the first Maine Brewers Guild Festival in Boothbay. Son Zachary, daughter-in-law Marah and I all enjoyed this a lot while their children played in the yard behind the bar and a pig was being roasted.

It's a yeasty beer with a bit of mineral spiciness from the Maine-grown rye, and is well-balanced by the hops. It comes in at 8.1 percent alcohol, but tastes like it is much lower.

The beer will be available on draft and in 750-milliliter cork and cage bottles in Maine only. Part of the proceeds benefits Portland Trails.
