The first beer tasting on the new BBB has been achieved
This really needed to be a classic Belgian beer.
Tasted at https://www.bistromaurice.be/
Not a place that we normally go to, but I was given the consumption cheques at work, and this place is listed where you can buy with the cheques.... hence...
Not really a beer place. They have about 25 beers, mainly from Duvel-Moortgat, as this tavern is Duvel-Moortgat tied
Exceptions: Westmalle dubbel en tripel, Augustijn, Cornet, Duvel, and a couple of others.
I went for the normal Duvel. Duvel Triple Hop Citra was also available.
€4.20 for the Duvel.
I could pour my glass by myself, as the the full bottle was presented along.
Gently pouring till the last bit, incl. the yeast sediment. That is how I prefer it.
It gives a hazy beer. If you want a crystal clear beer, you simply don't pour the sediment.
Important is that you pour with a huge head as result. Essential!
Tasting and nosing surprised me
Much more hops are going on as I remember.
Fruity, floral hops to be precise. Gives it that delicious flowery perfumy aroma.
Tasting only confirms the nose. Wow, such a hoppy beer this is.
This is not a beer that I frequently taste. It's actually been a while since I had my last one.
I can remember this beer always had that subtle sulfuric side taste. Well, this has disappeared.
It's just like tasting the Duvel Citra hop, but without the citric hops Amazing.
The beer is still quite sweet as it should be. Nice full mouth feeling too.
A beer to sip in the sunshine on a terrace, which we did.
Paired with this tapas platter makes it a complete FEAST
