Beer is certainly an acquired taste. Acquired tastes are interesting things. A year ago, I was not a big fan of Beer. I used to drink it, but never thought much of it.

Either way, let me get to the point - I have become a big fan of certain types of Beer.... I refer mainly to the Belgian Abbey Beers.

My personal favourite at the moment is "Leffe Brune" - a fantastically fruity beer with a kaleidoscope of wonderful flavours :-)

For no Reason, here is a quick list of my favourites, in order -

:bulletred: Leffe Brune
:bulletred: Leffe Blond
:bulletred: Stella Artois
:bulletred: Carlton Cold
:bulletred: Carlton Crown

Are there any Beers that tickle your fancy? What is your favourite Beer in the world? What would you recommend I try? I'm sure :iconverero: would have a few suggestions :D

Personal Favorite Belgium beers are :
-Kasteelbier Donker (translated - Dark CastleBeer (yes, castlebeer is the brandname))

Personally I don't like the normal stuff like Jupiler/Stella/Maes ... it's .. ack bad

Strong beers :D That's the way to do it :)

I actually had a 'Duvel' a couple of days ago - I'm a big fan, though it’s very very expensive over here.

I haven’t heard of Kasteelbier Donker - I'll have to ask about it at the 'Belgian Beer Cafe'

I don’t mind Stella - but I can’t drink it after I've had one of the really good ones. Stella is more of a Stand-alone Beer.

Thank you very much for your input :-) I'm glad to see some Belgians joined in :D :dance:

Cheers :drunk:

I agree with you on the Beer thing..... but not the Chocolate!!!! I think we Swiss have got the edge on you guys in terms of Chocolate :-)

Believe me, my friends and I have been planing a Belgian Beer Holiday for quite some time. We'll make it there.... one day.... hopefully within the year.

Cheers :hug:

Bundaberg Ginger beer nowadays :)

Well, I've been enjoy a fair bit of that myself :-)

It is a good drop :D

Hey! Look at that!!! *points* I'm in your journal :nod: *is proud*

Well, as soon as I read the title of your journal I started to think of all the beers I have ejoyed all over the place. And I was really happy to see that you like Stella. That's what I drink now when I go to the US for example. I particularely like it when it's on tap. Like most beers.

My favorite beer here in Canada is called Alexander Keith's Indian Pale Ale. It is brewed at a micro brewery in Nova Scotia. The same way for 130 years. I like it a lot and you can get it on tap even here in Ontario at a lot of places.

I have fond memories of some beers because of the countries I used to drink them in. Do you know what I mean?

Anyway: apart from those mentioned above I do enjoy the occasional pint of Guinness in the winter and nothing like an Erdinger Weissbier (from Bavaria) on a hot summer day. The Erdinger is even fine in a bottle... =D

Aren't we such coffee and beer connoiseurs? :beer:

Just as expected, you've written up a little essay on the topic. I love it :dance:

I discovered Stella during my European holiday. I was impressed with its fruity and 'clean' flavor. It truly is a top quality beer. I measure all "normal" beers against it, and most don’t come close.

This Alazender Beer you mention intrigues me.... I must try it, if I can get my hands on it.... I'm starting to develop a nice list of Beers here.... there are so many more to try :boogie:

I certainly know what you mean about Traveling and Beer. It was during my travels in Europe that I developed a taste for it - there are so many quality brews on that continent.... they are almost selfish :-)

I've tried Erdinger Weissbier - I only had one bottle and was room temperature when I drank it.... as such, I didn’t think much of it. If I can find some again (probably in Europe) I'll be sure to give it anther go :-)

Thank you very much for sharing your Beer Adventures.... I actually tired a couple of Beers last night that I certainly took a fancy to. They are - Hoegaarden Grand Cru and Hoegaarden Forbidden Fruit - Both were fantastic :drunk:

Cheers my Dear, and thanks for dropping by :hug: - I though you'd have something to say about the topic :D

Cheers :-)

They have Hoegaarden on tap at my favorite pub in Brooklyn. Can't wait to drive back down there when the snow is gone!!!

aussiepoida's avatar
While Hoegaarden is nice, it is certainly not my favourite Belgian Beer. I prefer the fruity beers, rather than the spicy ones... but that’s just me.

Have one for me when you get there :D
verero's avatar
I have to admit that I never tried any of the famous Belgian fruit beers. I am always worried that they might be sweet, which I generally don't enjoy at all.
aussiepoida's avatar
mmh. I suppose that would be a bit of a problem. Most of them certainly have a hint of sweetness.... but who knows, you may still like them if you tried them.

I'll buy you one once you get to Perth :boogie:

Then I shall try it and judge your character by it :-)

lol :drunk: , I love the "for no reason here is a quick list of my favourite...". I am not into beer

"Acquired tastes are interesting things"- like Vegemite
aussiepoida's avatar
Like Vegemite indeed.

I believe the only reason you're not into beer is because you've failed to try a good one :-) There is so much more to them then a bit of bitterness and some alcohol.

I suggest you go down to your local Belgian Beer Cafe and try a "Leffe Brune" . mmmh.... so fruity :P

Cheers :drunk: :hug:

lol, I'm not 18 yet. Right you are too, I have only had a sip of beer, so I might try more later.


:hug: :drunk:

Champagne is MY fav :aww: ... but I do like beer..... ;-)
so if you're looking for a part'ner in beer, I'm yours baby! ;-)

My fav is Heineken.:!: :frog:

We do have a fantastic one in the Philippines: San Miguel

Have you ever tasted one?
aussiepoida's avatar
No, I've never heard of "San Miguel", but I'll be sure to keep an eye out for it :-)

As for you being my drinking partner - I will be having a beer at 8:15 tonight... It would be great if you could have one at the same time :dance: :boogie: :D

Cheers :hug:

arumdamour's avatar
Count on me!! ;-) I'll be having one ! and I'd say: "here's to our crazy but unique life!! " ;-)

Make sure you look for San Miguel it's very good, and if you have one let me know how you liked it .

aussiepoida's avatar
I'll certainly give it my best shot.... I don’t think I'll be able to find it tonight, but rest assured I will look for it in future..... and I will certainly let you know what I think of it when I try it :-)

You and I are certainly living a strange parallel at the moment..... I think we'll both be ok, in due time, I'm sure life is just teaching us a lesson :-)
arumdamour's avatar
I'll drink to that!! :hug: ;-)
