    Here is a pic from Max's in Baltimore during Belgian Beer Fest, I took this shot of my buddy and the awesomely gigantic Belgian beer menu.
    Sony NEX 6 w/ 16-50mm pz lens
    ISO 3200 16mm f/4.0 1/60 sec
    post processing in Adobe Lightroom 4.3

    Cool shot and a decision I don't envy. That's one heck of a list.

    So what did he end up choosing?

    He went with a 2007 Duvel, amazing quality! So after looking at the picture in this post- it is really grainy and not like the original exported from Lightroom!? Any ideal why it looks so different? I had to export as a jpg because of the extreme file size

    Lindemans ! It's a rarer and sweeter kind of Kriek cheery flavored beer and it's just the BEST ever :)

    I can't say but I think that the grain, even if unintentional, works with the shot.

    I notice that the image is stored on the TalkNEX server. It may be that the site software does some JPEG compression of its own when it is sent an image to store, and that the compression is strong enough to have that effect.

    Duvel is a good choice, but I'm pretty sure I'd have an aneurysm trying to make up my mind with a list that big.

    What export settings did you choose in LR? I've never had noise like that when exporting JPEGs, and I'm not sure TalkNEX is causing that either as I've seen lots of other people post pics this way without the noise.

    Delicious. It's like pie filling in a glass. But I'm only good for a couple, so sweet. Local place always has it on tap.

    Only you'll be of pie-fillings in a glass not as sick as of sufficient glass Leffe Brown. I am also a lover of multiple types of Belgian beer.
