American beers seem to be following me

American beers seem to be following me | Belgian Beer | Scoop.it
Going away on holiday is great, of course, but really, we may have overdone it on the tasting notes from our US trip. With so many, I’d ideally use them to stretch out my blog posts on American beers over a couple months.

Ending my anti-can snobbery

Ending my anti-can snobbery | Belgian Beer | Scoop.it

Queue de Charrue Brune

Queue de Charrue Brune | Belgian Beer | Scoop.it
Sometimes I think I’ll just never get the hang of Flemish red-brown ales. We’ve now tried several, and we’re almost never impressed: vinegar, soy sauce, sourness, over-ripe fruit. Just not my thing in combination.

Buckwheat and pixies

Buckwheat and pixies | Belgian Beer | Scoop.it
My opinion of beer labels showing pixies, sprites, gnomes, fairies and trolls is well-known among readers of this blog, I assume. Still, allow me to summarise my general thesis on the matter here for the uninitiated: they are stupid.

Three American pale ales

Three American pale ales | Belgian Beer | Scoop.it
