A new experience

You just never know where and when a new experience is going to come along (although I probably should have expected it).

Today I had some dental work that required a local anaesthetic on a portion of my lower jaw. To "celebrate" a successful completion I had a glass or two of my recently kegged saison (based on Saison Dupont - surely the beer they drink in heaven, but there is no way it could be my daily drop as I would be falling over all the time). In the part of my mouth that was effected by the local, the first swig had most of my mouth tasting what I was expecting to taste (very bloody good) but then a portion of my mouth tasting something that had no temperature and was sweet with an acid after sensation and then as the anaesthetic wore off, decidedly salty. Fascinating. I can report that all taste sensations are now back to normal but that was quite interesting.
