Trappistes Rochefort 8

10/10 Now ladies and gents… you’re in for a treat….  If you’ve never come across a “trappist” beer before then you need to pay attention. If you love beer then you will love this.

10/10 Wow! This is the top end of beer! Soft golden brown in colour and it has a really soft, velvety texture with a fluffy white head.  It tastes really hoppy and maybe a bit syrupy.  The best thing is its on offer in Lidl. Amazing!!  The box is only £7 in Lidl. Each bottle… Read more »

Leffe Rituel 9•

10/10 Behold! This is the best type of Leffe I’ve tasted. It’s a full, rich beer. You almost feel like you need to chew it!  I was lucky enough to be given it after a friend did a booze run to France.  I really like Leffe anyway. It’s a slightly tamer Belgium beer than the… Read more »

I actually visited their ministry when I… Read more »

Hoegaarden Grand Cru

9/10 OMG! What a surprise! I thought I’d give this a try as I like the normal wheat beer by the same brewery. This is actually a full bodied blonde beer but still hazy in look. It tastes amazing! Maybe a bit of vanilla and citrus in there. I need more of this…! 8.5%
