Review: Unibroue (Sapporo) | La Fin du Monde

We sat in the front seat of the school bus and he showed me his YuGiOh cards, while I sat, reticent, eyes glazed over, straining to feign a doting air. I knew, glancing at his uniquely steady hands, that he could shoot up a school at a moment’s notice. Nobody liked Cory. Hell, I didn’t like Cory. I wrung my hands trying to bond with him over our favorite My Chemical Romance song as I contemplated abrading my groin with coarse sandpaper in a fetishistic act of escapism.

 

An arsenal of anxiety

Born out of bad timing

I invested in a few moments in purgatory

To dodge an intentional bullet.

 

These are the folks that might grow up,

Join the military

And vent their frustrations out alone

In the

Desert.

Or if they’re lucky

Start a family

In

South Dakota

And

Never talk about

Their

Adolescence

Again.

 

That’s this beer. For everyone who considered suicide a fashion statement, there’s this beer. For everyone who got a little too much into Norse mythology, there’s this beer. For anyone who’s currently a CPA, there’s this God-forsaken Belgian Tripel.

 

Just give him the money and go.

 

Be silent.

 

Step away

And

 

Let him eat his taco bell in the food court

With

The camera

On.

Everything

As

Evidence

 

 

Apricot, hazy, gold around the edges of the glass. Bright, white, fluffy head.  Moderate lacing.

 

Meticulous notes

 

banana acetone, white pepper, rosemary and thyme. Orange and grass.

 

For no one but himself

 

 Apple cider, black pepper, bananas if they were bitter, bubblegum, buckwheat honey, baked apple. Cloyingly sweet…

 

 

But who will find them?

 

 Effervescent, syrupy, medium thick.

 

Like the blood on  li
