Beer #1665 is a sour red ale brewed by Bavik-De-Brabandere in Harelbeke, Belgium. A slightly tarty red ale, it’s a little sweet with a hint of almond in the aftertaste. The 8+% alcohol isn’t noticeable to me. This is quite…

Beer #1663 is a sour pale ale brewed by Bavik-De-Brabandere in Harelbeke, Belgium. An aggressively sour and unusual ale, the aroma and taste remind me of lemon sherbet. Not my favourite beer by a long shot but certainly different. The…

Beer #1655 is a blond beer brewed by Bavik-De-Brabandere in Harelbeke, Belgium. My first from Petrus and it’s not a very good start! I couldn’t drink much of this, at only 6.6% it pretty much tastes like I’m drinking wine.…

Beer #1619 is a saison brewed by Brasserie Du Bocq in Belgium. This is quite an impressive saison, it’s spicy with coriander and the warmth of the otherwise well hidden alcohol at 6.4%. It’s yeasty with hints of banana. Definitely…

Beer #1610 is a belgian ale brewed by Brouwerij De Ranke in Belgium. From the moment I cracked open the bottle this beer made its presence known. A strong fruity aroma leapt out at me. Taste-wise it’s pretty yeasty with…

Beer #1570 is a dubbel brewed by Brouwerij St. Bernardus in Belgium. A good strong yeasty Belgian ale that is moderately sweet with dark fruit and some bitterness. Enjoyable and thankfully not too strong in the alcohol department at 6.5%.…

Beer #1538 is a quadrupel brewed by Brouwerij Van Honsebrouck in Belgium. Another good one from Brouwerij Van Honsebrouck, it’s fairly sweet with some fruit, malt and caramel. The alcohol is more obvious this time (at 11% this is to…

Kasteel Rouge

Beer #1537 is an ale brewed by Brouwerij Van Honsebrouck in Belgium. An enjoyable cherry fruit beer, it’s quite tarty but I didn’t find it crossed the line for me. Beyond the cherry I didn’t sense anything else though. The…

Beer #1496 is a belgian strong ale brewed by Brouwerij St. Bernardus in Belgium. A rich sweet deeply fruity ale that tastes more like a red wine (complete with that aroma) than a beer. At a whopping 10% it hides…

St Louis Kriek Lambic

Beer #1453 is a lambic brewed by Brouwerij Van Honsebrouck in Belgium. A sweet and sour but quite refreshing fruit beer. The cherry is full on and it doesn’t taste like a beer at all, but it is, so I’ll…
