This stuff …

Bellegems Witbier

…. tasted like it had been squeezed out of a ewe’s bladder!!

While that’s certainly no mature verdict on a beer, it does express my profound disappointment upon tasting it. However, top marks must be added for the faux heather (?) and label matching.

Lordy! Lordy! What HAS happened?

The excitement of finding the 330ml bottle, a more manageable quantity for a 7.2% beer, has given way to a touch of despair and incomprehensibility!! Can I say that word? Incomprehension doesn’t quite cut it somehow. Anyway, I opened a bottle of Brakspear Triple, which I was hoping I could savour and swirl and thrust under the professorette’s nose every two minutes, but was alarmed to find a very ‘wet’ tasting beer hiding out inside. Closer inspection revealed no yeast residue in the bottom of the bottle either. I tried a little more of it and again thought something quite essential was missing from this once classic ale! In the words of Melanie … it’s turning out all wrong!

What trickery is this?

Ils ont changé notre biere ma….. Ils ont changéeeeeee…….
