This evening was spent at the Union Club for a Belgian Beer Tasting. Pictured is Kelly's Beer Notes that she scribbled in between sips. . .
Two of the beers we were already familiar with: Stella and Hoegaarden -- actually, Hoegaarden was one of the only beers Kelly would drink prior to this experience. . .
Our favorites, however, were the Westmalle Trapist (monks make this!) and Framboise (tastes like raspberry reduction, complimenting dark chocolate excellently).
Although, unfortunately we did taste a beer we were not particularly fond of -- Duchesse de Bourgogne (which tastes undeniably like vinegar). . .but, to humor the beer connoisseur, we told him it reminded us of cider, ha
Interestingly enough, we were introduced to a beer, Lindeman's Gueuze, that uses no yeast and has a cork like a champagne bottle's. This beer had a prominent citrus aftertaste and was very pleasant.
