This has been a hard week for a number of reasons I wont go into so it’s nice to get to Friday evening and a delicious beer.
I’d not tasted this Leffe winter beer before but I am really impressed by it.
There remains a snobbery about Leffe , especially in Belgium. But as an accessible beer with a taste that can transport you back to Flanders it hits the spot.
Brune and Blonde I will drink. On draught I prefer Ruby but this one beats them all.
Its crisp, yet fruity and puts me in the mind of much pricier and stronger bottles.
So whilst I love the rarer and smaller batch products that are harder to track down and costlier to drink, this weekend I appeal to you all to show love for Leffe…
It does a job. It’s a domestique rather than classics winner but as long as you understand that it wont disappoint.
Welcome to 2021 and Beers of Belgium.
I would love to say we have big plans for the page this year but I am not sure the Covid pandemic will allow that.
However, despite all of the challenges we face right now I am determined to enjoy the cycling season and sup some beers doing it.
I hope that will be along for the ride !
I have taken a trip to the dark side (Walloonia!!) when in the West Country recently.
Whilst my family were loafing around the Home Bargains in Bude I found some Belgian beer for 75p a pop.
I wasn’t convinced it would be up to much but as a barbeque accompaniment it was ok.
Anyone else tried Belgica before? Some of the review apps love it and some hate it, but I quite liked it.
