New product online: Cornet 33 cl

Cornet is a top-fermented beer produced by a brewery called De Hoorn.Cornet

De Hoorn was a small brewery at Steenhuffel that has disappeared over time. But Palm Craft Brewers decided to rebuild the brewery in order to brew small craft beers in a very low quantity (they will be called ‘Arthur’s legacy’). The first beer by ‘De Hoorn’ is already a straight hit: Cornet.

And today I’m introducing it to you. It’s now available to order on my webshop.

This exclusive beer is a blond Belgian beer with a subtle wood, vanilla and bitter flavor. It has a 8,5 % alcohol level.

You should definitely try it!

Almost Christmas…?!

Hi there!

Do you also love the christmas market in Bruges?? This friday the ice track, the little shops & bars officially opened. It’s very cosy (but a little bit cold). But of course there is a very obvious solution for that.. Yes, I can see you thinking.. Alcohol!

The most popular drink in the winter time and on the christmas market is genever – jenever – genièvre. Did you already know that genever can only be produced in Belgium or in the Netherlands? Otherwise it cannot even be called genever.

Genever was produced by distilling malt wine. But actually it tasted really awful, so they added the juniper berry, to make it drinkable. The juniper berry was known for its medicinal effects. So genever is actually a medicine! 😀

It’s now also available on my webshop Taste Belgium. Click on the link to see what flavors are available!

Cheers and bottoms up…

Only the truth can set you free!

Last night I drank a surprisingly nice stout beer… I could fully recommend it to anyone who can get their hands on it!

It’s called Struise Cuvée Delphine. The name comes from Delphine Boël, the unlawful daughter of King Albert II.

As you maybe know or not know, Struise has another beer called Black Albert. The Black Albert is a tribute to Albert II, our sixth king (Belgium). So the Cuvée Delphine is based on the Black Albert, but matured on Four Roses bourbon barrels for 12 months.

Also nice to know is that Delphine Boël has created the artwork for its label. The label speaks for itself!

Taste:

  • Notes of oak
  • Vanilla flavour
  • Coffee
  • Brown sugar

And it has the amazing alcohol level of 11%…

I will definitely drink this again!

By the way, I drank this in a bar called ‘Le Trappiste‘ in Bruges, Belgium. I can highly recommend it if you adore beer. As you can see on the picture, there is a wide choice of top beers!

Cheers. Cathy
