This month I didn’t taste many new beers, but mostly focussed on old classics. Some were new to Untappd though, and the list of what was the best stuff I tasted is here.
Mug Bitter – De Halve Maan
A specialty beer brewed for Café De Mug in Middelburg where I went to pick one up when I was at my dad’s cottage in Vlissingen. It tasted surprisingly well and although I barely have any experience with bitters, I know this one was a bit more crisp and flavourful. Good stuff!
La Lilloise – Les Trois Brasseurs
A brew pub in Reims, brewing its own stuff on the premises. A good combination on any night, but to go there after a champagne filled day was terrific! This beer was pretty great too! Belgian style with a twist.
IPA is Dead Motueka – BrewDog
My favorite of the new BrewDog IPA is Dead package with a herbal bitterness that I found very appealing. I love these kinds of IPAs with new things to discover!
Trappist Westvleteren 12 – Westvleteren
The heaviest barley wine style ale from Trappist Abbey Westvleteren, on the French border. An absolutely stunning beer that could do with less hyping. It is a bit overhyped, but still a bloody terrific beer.
Biologisch Ur-Weizen – Gulpener
A weiss beer that goes very well with the sun out, and burgers on the grill. Not my favourite style of beer but this one had a bit more body than I’m used to.
A month in which I drank mostly my own beer or reruns from previous months. Although I really think my own brews are pretty damn tasty, I’m not big on blowing my own horn here. I hope to get some reviews in from some other people I’ve sent it to and who tasted it. I do have some five star reviews on Untappd already! Reviews will follow shortly, before supplies run out!
