Red as in cherries - Liefmans Kriek - Tasting - Liefmans Kriek

Over the past 5 to 10 years alcopops popped up on the beverage scene. InBev with their premium brand Becks followed the path and created several pre mixed beer mix drinks. There are other brands offering beer mix drinks as well. We have Mixery from Karlsberg which is a mixture of cola and beer. There is also shandy, a mixture of beer and lemonade. The market of all these kind of mix beer drinks is manageable.

Belgian Gueuze probably goes well with Japanese Natto - Tasting - St. Louis Gueuze Lambic

Sometimes you have to go through bad things to get to the best. I never thought that this might adhere to beer as well.

There are several bars and restaurants at the Grand Place in Brussels. Many of them serve good beers – concidering almost all Belgian beers are good beers. We decided to order a Gueuze - for the first time ever. I was excited and couldn’t wait to get the beer.

In honour to Pauwel Kwak I raise my glass - Tasting - Kwak beer

Kwak beer is named after its developer Pauwel Kwak. It’s probably a typical Belgian beer with an alcohol content of about 8.4 % abv. brewed by the family brewery Bosteels. The glass it is served in is specially formed – like an hour glass, so that it can be stored at top of a stagecoach’s coachbox.

We got the beer at a nice beer garden in the middle of Brussels. I guess it’s the only beer garden in the city centre. It took quite a while to get the beer but it was worth it.

My first glutenfree beer - Neumarkter Lammsbräu Glutenfrei - Tasting - Neumarkter Lammsbräu Gluten

Gluten free beer is free of the wheat / rye / barley protein gluten (or nearly free – gluten free means below 20 ppm gluten) and its parts gliadin or glutenin. It is therefore digestible by persons who suffer from Celiac disease.
There are some breweries around producing gluten free beer - hosts a list of gluten free beers sorted by country.

The winter is not yet over - Pakkaspaavo from Teerenpeli - Tasting -

While looking at the bottle I noticed that this beer was already about 2 ½ months beyond its best before date. This review might therefore not be accurate, but as the beer tasted OK, I gave it a shot. The Teerenpeli "Pakkaspaavo2 is also called "winter beer". I’m not yet sure how I would classify it. I hope we know more at the end of this review. Once it is safely poured from the fridge into the glass I find its colour very blackish dark (probably only Guinness is darker) According to the bottle label its alcohol content is about 4.7%.
